Literary criticism is a way that scholars approach a text to help determine its implied, rather than overt, meaning. Looking at a text through a particular critical lens opens specific analytical avenues for a reader that would otherwise remain obscured. 

For this essay, you’ll be applying one of two critical lenses to Beowulf and explaining how examining the text through that lens helps you to understand the overall meaning of the text. 

First, you’ll look at the information about each school of criticism before you decide which you’d like to apply to the text. You’ll then find textual evidence from Beowulf and explain how it is given meaning when looked at through this particular lens.

For this essay, you will be required to use THREE (3) additional scholarly sources.

Topic: For this assignment, you will write an essay in which you analyze the rhetorical modes of Eugene Deb’s “Canton, Ohio – Anti War Speech.”  It will be your job to utilize the concepts we have covered in class (ethos, pathos, logos, objectivity, subjectivity, tone, diction, etc.) to uncover the sub-textual motives of the speech.  Be creative and logical as you offer a variety of exploratory discussions/analysis to help your reader understand the rhetorical modes utilized in the text, their intended effect, and their overall effectiveness.

Rhetorical Analysis examines how a text is deliberately constructed or composed to create a persuasive argument (considering elements like rhetorical appeals, strategies of development, and presentation).  Be sure to choose a text that will lend itself well to such an analysis.

Write a persuasive analysis of the text with a strong thesis statement, considering not only WHAT that text is arguing but also HOW it is making that argument. Specifically, you need to develop a persuasive claim as to how the primary text is designed to make a particular argument in relation to its:

• Rhetorical situation and/or
• Context, and/or 
• Use of rhetorical appeals (such as pathos, logos, ethos), and/or 
• Use of one or more strategies of development such as narration, definition, comparison/contrast, division-classification, description, example. 

The goal is not to talk about as many elements as possible but instead to focus on those elements that you feel most contribute to the creation of the text’s overall argument.

Remember that while you will need to delve into information, examples, and evidence that helps to support your analysis of rhetorical modes, you will need to keep the focus of the paper related to the objective of the piece you are analyzing.  Remember to use the basic elements of writing that we have covered so far to develop your essay (introduction, thesis, topic sentences, transition sentences, examples, conclusion, etc.)

ENG 111 Writing and Inquiry


RHETORICAL ANALYSIS ESSAY

For this assignment, you will craft an essay that analyzes and evaluates two articles that discuss the same topic from different perspectives. 

Your essay will examine the rhetorical context (author, audience, topic, purpose) as well as the strategies used to convey its message (diction, tone, style, supporting evidence, and rhetorical appeals: logos, ethos, and pathos).

Your ultimate task is to analyze how well the author reaches his or her intended audience by explaining and showing examples of the specific aspects above.  

You have two options for how you approach this essay. 

OPTION A
Choose a topic for which you can find two different articles that discuss opposing viewpoints of the topic: one article that discusses the “pro” side, the other discussing the “con” side. Evaluate which article is most effective by comparing how they use various rhetorical strategies.

OPTION B
Choose a topic and find two different genres of articles that discuss the same topic (news article, newspaper or magazine article, academic scholarly article, etc.) Determine what the reading audience would expect from each article you choose and compare how well the articles meet readers’ expectations using evidence of rhetorical strategies for support.

Please note, your task is not to argue which side you personally agree with; your task is to examine the effectiveness of each article based upon how it was written to an audience. Also, your task is not to summarize the articles, but to analyze them.

Assignment Guidelines

1. Your essay must follow a formal essay structure, to include an introduction with a detailed thesis, focused body paragraphs, and a conclusion.

2. Your essay must be two to three (2-3) pages in MLA format with an additional Works Cited page to document your two sources. 

Within your paper, you should smoothly integrate quotes and references to the articles with proper in-text citations. These citations must correspond to the Works Cited page.

Below is how the essay is required to be

Throughout the semester, we’ll examine different parts of the writing process so that you can develop different writing skills. The best writing strategies are portable and you will be able to express yourself in writing no matter what course you are taking or who the professor it.
In these first exercises, our focus is on “audience” (i.e. to whom we are writing) and on the importance of asking and anticipating “questions” – both you and your reader need to dialogue through a series of questions. Your paper should ideally take the shape of the kinds of questions you ask of the text you are reading.
An essay that does not deal with questions will be descriptive rather than interpretative. An essay can be regarded as persuasive writing that tries to impress the reader of your writing with some “element of wonder” you wish to share with them. Above all, the reader should learn something from your essay.
Reader as Audience
A successfully structured essay will attend to the reader’s logic. A good writer, in other words, writes by being mindful of what readers of their work need to know and the sequence in which the reader needs to receive information or analysis from you. Because of this, there is no set formula for a strong essay. Rather, you should think of an essay as uniquely, and liberatingly, determined by the things you want to say. You should also think of your writing as anticipation – what does my reader need to know in order to understand my thoughts and interpretations?; what might my reader be asking of my claims?; how can I engage my reader and keep them interested?; and so on.
Required elements of an essay:
1. introduction of the text, including any kind of historical/biographical information.
Introduction also of your critical viewpoint and how you will be using it to shape
your interpretation of the text.
2. body paragraphs that contain analysis of different points in your analysis and of
different sections of the text, some body paragraphs may even offer a counter-
analysis.
3. conclusion that does not simply end the paper but offers the reader a portal (or open
door) into thinking further about some “element of wonder” that you discerned from the text.
Mapping your essay
From the college level onwards, your writing should never aim at purely summary, description, or observation. It is in essence a series of questions that have guided you and a series of questions you know the reader will need answered.
Kinds of Questions to Ask:
1. What? – What specific issues or qualities of the text am I bring to the attention of
the reader? What should they know about the text (its form, its theme, its topics, its
arguments)?
2. How? – How does the text itself substantiate what I am trying to teach the reader?
How can I move from one point to the next without confusing my reader? How can
Phukan 1
    
I help the reader see connections between points? How can I help my reader see the
“bigger picture” in your interpretation of the text?
3. Why? – This is the most important question you ask yourself: why should anyone
continue reading my work? Why would it benefit them?

Format for titles:

Essays “Teach yourself Italian” Poems ‘Poems”
Chapters “Chapter titles”
General Points about Quotes
I. Do not begin your use of quotes by saying, on page 33 Jhumpa says this or that, etc. Quotes should be included into your own sentences and cannot speak for themselves. Do not leave them “floating” by themselves as individual sentences.
II. Quotes are meaningless to the reader unless they “service” your claims and interpretations. It is also your job to have them make sense, not the reader’s. How and why does the quote connect with or support ideas you are trying to make in your paper.
III. Overly long quotes and too much dependence on block quoting weakens the overall strength of what you are trying to say. Don’t let the text you are interpreting “take over” in your paper. (That would be a book review type of paper.)
IV. Think of quotes as accessories and adornments and be creative in your use of them.

No need for intro paragraph. Go straight into the response. 

The Tempest is a play the action of which is driven by rebellion and revolution.  Prospero is stranded on the island as a result of a plot between Antonio and Alonso to displace him in favor of his brother (I.ii.145 ff.).  On the island, Sebastian and Antonio plot of kill Alonso (II.i.332-6), and to make Sebastian the king of Naples, displacing his proper heir, Sebastian's sister Claribel.  Caliban recruits Stephano and Trinculo to kill Prospero and rule the island, with Stephano taking Miranda as his bride (III.ii.116-9).  Clearly, allegiance, duty, and the failure of both are themes in the play.

However, even though he was wrongly displaced by his "perfidious" brother, Prospero makes it clear that he lost his rule partly because of his own faults as a ruler, paying too much attention to his books, and too little to his government (I.ii.90-95).  So, while subjects owe allegiance to their ruler, it seems clear that rulers also owe a duty to their subjects (which Antonio violates not only be displacing his brother, but by selling out to the King of Naples, I.ii.133-7).

By what means does Prospero become qualified to resume his role as Duke of Milan?  In other words, describe how Prospero must reform in order to be qualified to resume rule.
