  • T - TONE
  • S - STYLE
  • We must fight!
  • T - THEME
  • Henry’s tone is passionate, intense, and pleading.
  • slighted, violence, insult, disregarded, spurned, noble struggle, fight
  • "...and we have been spurned with contempt from the foot of the throne!”
  • Henry uses repetition in the beginning of the section to highlight all of the responses the colonists’ efforts have been met with in their pleas to the throne. His exclamations drive home the passion of the only choice they have left.
  • This passage highlights the immediacy of the situation that the colonists are in. They have appealed to the king, and he has rejected them; if they wish to preserve their freedom and not let their struggle be in vain, then they must go to war and fight for their “noble struggle”.
