- Wallace and Cronon both use the rhetorical element of pathos to elicit certain emotional reactions in their audience, in order to persuade them. What are some specific instances in which Krutch and Cronon appeal to pathos?
- In these passages specifically, what kinds of emotions are they trying to elicit in their audience?
