THE ETHOS IN LITERARY DISCOURSE THE NOVEL
This article is based on a problem about the extent to which the literary text can be approached with some concepts of an argumentative dimension ; Given that the literary text has been classified by many researchers as more enjoyable than convincing. One of these concepts in which we seek to approach the literary text is the concept of Ethos. To illustrate this, we have chosen a literary text to apply the concept of Ethos to it, and here we mean the novel "Black soldier" by Youssef Idris. To clarify this fact, we have tried to trace the concept of Ethos in the field of rhetoric, then in the field of discourse analysis and then in the field of sociology. After that we moved on to the applied approach of this concept to the literary text through the novel 'Black soldier'.
