A Rhetorical Analysis of “Against Meat” by Jonathan Safran Foer The standard way of thinking about vegetarianism has it that you either are one or you are not. While it is rarely discussed between omnivores and herbivores over dinner, vegetarians often fall into a category more accurately described as conscientious meat eaters. In Jonathan Safran Foer’s essay, “Against Meat,” he describes his personal plight to become, and remain, a vegetarian through-out his life. An endeavor he admits is an on-going struggle for himself and his family. Foer advocates a meat-free diet is, ethically, the right thing to do. But he is also honest with the reader about the realities of giving up what he describes as a “rich and fully enjoyable” diet.
