The goal of this essay is to write a rhetorical analysis of one of the following texts:
“Letter from a Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Dis-Grace”, “Jurisdiction” OR “Gladness” by Gregory Boyles
“How to Tame a Wild Tongue” by Gloria Anzaldua
“The Myth of the Latin Woman: I Just Met a Girl Named Maria” by Judith Ortiz Cofer
What is a rhetorical analysis? In this type of analysis you will be looking at the deliberate rhetorical strategies that your chosen text employs in order to make its argument. You will need to make a strong (and contestable) claim about how the text uses rhetoric (or how the text is deliberately composed or constructed). As you develop and discuss your claim within your analysis you might consider the following elements that exist in the text:
Rhetorical situation (relationship between the text and audience)
Use of rhetorical appeals (logos, ethos, pathos)
Use of developmental strategies such as narration, definition, comparison/contrast, division/classification, etc.)
