Rhetorical Analysis: Explaining a Concept—Identity.
I want you please to follow the steps as carefully as you can. Also, I’ll attach the article that you need to read and write the essay about it. No need for outside resources.
First I want you to write a Draft of 500 words + works cited page.
Second I want you to write an essay of 1000words+ the same work cited page with the final essay.
You will write the essay separate from the draft.
Rhetoric is the study of how writers and speakers use words to influence an audience. A rhetorical analysis is an essay that breaks a work of non-fiction into parts and then explains how the parts work together to create a certain effect—whether to persuade, entertain or inform. A rhetorical analysis should explore the author’s goals, the techniques used, examples of those techniques, and the effectiveness of those techniques. When writing a rhetorical analysis, you are discussing how the author makes an argument and whether or not the approach used is successful. For this assignment, you will be reading the following essays found in your textbook:
Name of the article is: “Shooting an Elephant”.
Make sure that to include all of the Aristotelian appeals: Ethos, Logos, and Pathos.
You must provide examples (specific textual references, paraphrases, and direct quotes) from the essay to support your claims.
Please note you are NOT agreeing or disagreeing with the author’s argument– ONLY analyzing it.
