In Daniel Alarcón’s novel, Lost City Radio, he appeals to his readers through the usage of pathos and logos by his character, Don Zahir, insinuating that everyone has no memories of the war. Alarcón focuses on revealing the truth of the government being responsible for the people’s memory loss about the war and the IL. He points out that both the people of village 1797 and Manau from the capital have no recognition of the events. In addition, Alarcón uses claim of value to prove to his readers that the government within the novel, is erasing the memories of the IL and the war from the people. Also, Alarcón supports his claim within the novel by his character, Don Zahir, stating that none of the soldiers remember the IL and the war either.
