Twelve Angry Men Essay - 306 words
Jack Lemmon was a very persuasive speaker, using the methods of speech called logos and pathos, he convinced his audience (11 angry men) otherwise. He was capable of changing 11 men's minds, which seemed to be sure about their decisions. Foremost, using proof by logos was a very important skill. Jack rationalized with his audience, trying to convince them that the testimony of the "witnesses" was false because of the facts and figures. Jack proved that the old man who lived down stairs could not walk to the staircase from his bed in a matter of fifteen seconds. He also proved that the lady across the street does wear eyeglasses, and that she would not be able to see the murder occur across t ...

Twelve Angry Men - 628 words
Twelve Angry Men is a very interesting play about an unfortunate young man, who was convicted of killing his dad. The worst part was, the young man was only nineteen, and his life was just starting. The jurors listened to all the evidence, then came the hard part, making the decision: guilty, or innocent. Eleven jurors said guilty and only one said innocent. There was a lot of peer pressure involved. I decided to write about different peer pressures three of the jurors used. The three jurors I picked are juror #10, juror #7, and juror #8. The first juror I want to write about is #10. Juror #10 was using a lot of sarcasm, whenever he was trying to prove his point, or prove someone else wrong. ...

Twelve Angry Men And To Kill A Mockingbird - 461 words
Mahatma Gandhi once said, You must be the change you wish to see in the world. This simply means that if you want to make a difference in the world then you have to be the one to step up and make the change. This quote applies to Juror Eight in Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose and Atticus in To Kill a Mockingbird. Juror Eight takes a stand for what he believes in and opposes the other eleven jurors that vote guilty, as well as Atticus who knew it was the moral action to defend a black man even though nearly every other white person disagreed with him. Juror Eight in Twelve Angry Men stands alone while the eleven other jurors vote guilty. Juror Eight is characterized as an intelligent man wh ...

12 Angry Men - 800 words
Every person may have his own way of defining the term "reasonable doubt." In the play "Twelve Angry Men", by Reginald Rose, one juror, number Eight, stands alone against 11 others to convince them that the boy is not guilty. He looks beyond the given testimonies in order to give the boy a fair trial, though this is more then the others think the boy deserves. If the jury finds a "reasonable doubt", it must declare an innocent verdict. A young man stands accused of fatally stabbing his father, and his fate now lies in the hands of his "peers:" 12 men from all walks of life, each with his own agenda, fears and personal demons. At first, based on their conversation, it seems that it will be a ...

Conformity - 661 words
In my personal experience I consider myself a Farley normal human being that would generally follow most of the considered social norms in our society. I take a shower every day, I dont talk to strangers on the elevator, and I like to eat my cereal with milk. Nothing too out of the ordinary as far as being in agreement with society and the environment around me, but the one thing that I have not done by this point in my life that most people my age have is to have the urge to go out and get drunk every weekend, or even drink at all. I do not drink because I have never found it to be beneficial to me in any way. Teenagers drink with groups of peers that get together for the purpose of getting ...

12 Angry Men - 666 words
The play Twelve Angry Men, By Reginald Rose, is a play about 12 jurors that in an uncomfortable room have to discuss a life and death case about a boy that is accused or killing his father. the jurors do not really know eachother to talk to and wish they were anywhere but in that jury room. Every juror has a different emotional pattern that makes the play interesting. In my opinion there were 3 main jurors in the jury room: Juror 8, Juror 3 and Juror 9. Juror 8 is important because he is smart, brave, and fair. Juror 3 was important because he was the antagonist, he was mean, and he was intolerant. Juror 9 was important because he wasnt afraid of confronting other jurors. Juror 8 was a very ...
