A rhetorical analysis asks you to focus on the arguments presented in a text and evaluate the effectiveness of those arguments. The arguments might be overt, covert, intended, unintended, strong, and/or weak. Your task is to explain and evaluate the argument(s) to your reader. In this assignment you will select one text to summarize, explicate and analyze the argument(s) through the scope of rhetorical analysis. You need to use the evidence from the text to verify the claims you make and deliver clear and concise evaluations based on the evidence. You should review Everything’s an Argument for different ways to categorize and evaluate arguments. Remember, the rhetorical analysis paper goes beyond your personal feelings about a text and uses the tools developed in the class and the textbook to weigh the success of the arguments.
