Reviewing Structure


Keep in mind

Keep in Mind

  • The structure provided is a rough guide meant to give you an idea of what should be included in a rhetorical analysis essay and, more or less, in which order it should be arranged. As long as all of the necessary elements are present, variations are possible and encouraged.

  • We will review the structures introduced last week and see how they are used in graded samples.

Structure of analysis

Structure of Analysis

  • After the integrated quote you should discuss the following before moving on to the next quote:

    • How does the choice in the quote affect the audience?

    • Does the use of the choice appeal to ethos(authority, credentials, morals), pathos(feelings), or logos(logic)? If so, how?

    • How does using the choice (and the appeal it causes) help the author convince the audience to act upon the issue he or she presents(purpose)?

    • Why does it affect that particular audience?

  • This is the analysis of the rhetorical choice.
