Description You will write a 1000-1250 word rhetorical analysis of one of the following essays from our textbook for this assignment: The act of attentively examining a piece of writing to understand how the many components of its argument fit together is known as rhetorical analysis. An author may use evidence to persuade an audience or reader, and rational argument is merely one method of constructing an argument. In some cases, making an emotional connection with the reader or audience might help you make a stronger point. The purpose of rhetorical analysis is to break down a text into its constituent pieces in order to study and understand it. Read the article carefully to identify the author’s subject matter and intentions. The purpose could be to explain or inform the reader about a specific issue or topic. The goal could be to amuse and entertain the reader with a lighter theme, or it could be to motivate or persuade them. 3. Examine the author’s writing style for rhetorical aspects. Writers and speakers use language in a variety of ways to accomplish various results. Rhetoric acknowledges that a speaker or writer uses many tools and tactics to persuade his audience. Logos, ethos, and pathos were Aristotle’s three categories for eloquence. To persuade the reader, Logos use logic and reason. Ethos tries to persuade the reader by relying on the writer’s or another expert’s credibility. The reader is persuaded by the expert’s authority rather than the evidence itself. Pathos tries to persuade the reader by appealing to his or her emotions. Pathos can elicit pity or compassion, sadness or rage, love or hatred, and so on in the reader. Take notes on the many rhetorical styles utilized in the text as you read it. 4. For your rhetorical analysis, create a topic outline. This will be graded, and you must include it in your submission (and your outline is not included in the required word count; essay only). The examination of the essay should be divided into three sections: an introduction, a main body, and a conclusion. Subdivide the analysis’ major body into subsections. The subsections could be devoted to the text’s various rhetorical components. These are the paragraphs that will make up your body. To put it another way, you could devote the first body paragraph to evaluating the argument’s context, another to the author’s attitude and tone, still another to rhetorical techniques (analyzing the author’s tone), and yet another to persuasive appeals. 5. Construct a powerful thesis statement that encapsulates the analysis’ primary elements. Describe the author’s main point and the overall approach he or she employed to make it. In the last sentence of the introduction, outline the steps of your argument. This is what your thesis should be (please underline your thesis). In the main body of the article, present the many elements of your analysis. Make sure you have clear topic sentences that you can back up with specific examples from the primary source to demonstrate your point of view. You’ll need to employ your quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing abilities, as well as your MLA documentation abilities. Write a one-paragraph conclusion that encapsulates the analysis’ main themes.
