PORTIA: The quality of mercy is not strain’d, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: ‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown; His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway; It is enthroned in the hearts of kings, It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God’s When mercy seasons justice., the character of Portia has dressed up as a lawyer and gives a well-known speech about mercy.

The main character and narrator of the play, Tom, addresses the audience directly in his first few lines. A demonstration of the fallacy in an opponent’s argument. Why might an author choose to use an example of a concession? To address what the readers might be thinking and answer this with the author’s own ideas. To convince the reader that the author is the only one with the right point of view. To convince the reader that he or she is completely wrong.
He acknowledges that the guise of a play might make everything seem more fictional, and makes the concession that he has “tricks in [his] pocket” and “things up [his] sleeve.” Yet he avers that behind all the tricks, there is much truth in this play. OBAMA: And to the [your credit, Romney], you supported us going into Libya and the coalition that we organized.
The fact that she is white automatically gives her privileges and thus makes her accusation against an innocent black man all the more inexcusable.
TOM: Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth.
