In this essay, I was taught how to read from a different perspective. I learned how to deconstruct, and reconstruct writing to learn the thought process of the author. Mike Bunn shows his readers a how-to process of analyzing any form of literature, explaining the purpose, context, and language. Throughout the essay "How to Read Like a Writer,” Mike compares analyzing writing to an architect analyzing columns, or a carpenter analyzing homes. He encourages those reading his essay to think about how to evolve as better writers, and whether or not this technique can help you learn more about literature itself.

For the reader, the voice markers help to integrate quotes of what others stated connecting it back to the argument. This made the text run smoothly for the reader and not lose focus. “To avoid confusion in your own writing, make sure that at every point your reader can clearly tell who is saying what” (71).
Rhetorical questions impact me as a reader by, engaging me into the text and also by making me think about what is being talked about in the book. Rhetorical questions impact the reading experience by bringing in new ideas and thoughts to the book, and makes you ask yourself the questions that being asked. I think that he added rhetorical questions to help the reader to think more about the book, and to help add an emphasis on what is being talked about in the book. Elie Wiesel is is trying to impact the reader and the reading experience by adding an emphasis on how what is happening doesn’t matter anymore, because they are going to end up dying anyways, whether that is in 20 years, or in 20 days; at the concentration camp or at their house.

“What does an act of rereading--both in and of Nabokov’s Lolita--involve, entail and encourage, exactly?” (Hustis 1). Harriet Hustis writes about the act of rereading to gain a true understanding of the book Lolita. Hustis discusses the different ways to truly get acquainted with the text as a reader. There are several rhetorical strategies Nabokov uses while writing Lolita to truly help the reader comprehend the characters and why they do what they do. Hustis uses several examples of how Nabokov utilizes backshadowing to reference previous parts of the text that you may not have recognized at first glance.
White said “[he] would be in the middle of some simple act, [he] would be picking up a bait box or laying down a table fork, [he] would be saying something, and suddenly it would be not [him] but [his] father who was saying the words or making the gesture” (White 432). Duality is playing an important part of White realizing he is getting closer to dying because it demonstrates that he was in the same place as his son and eventually his father died but the lake in Maine had been a piece of his father he would always have. White bringing his son to the lake helps continue that tradition and will also leave his son with a piece of his own father when he dies. White believes that when his son is grown and has kids, he will also bring his son there and the cycle would just keep continuing. White refers to the lake as a ‘holy spot’ and a place that was ‘pretty much the same’ but there are many times he is forced to realize that much time has passed

Repetition is essential for the average human brain to retain or notice something. Educators appeal to this criteria through first teaching students, then reviewing material, quizzing, and eventually ensuring the students are prepared for a final assessment on the given material. Similarly, authors use repetition through literary techniques to grasp the attention of the readers and to enhance their understanding of the author’s meaning. Fortunately, Alexandra Robbins and Nathaniel Hawthorne utilize parallel prepositions in a series, as well as the climactic conclusion effect of polysyndeton to convey a meaning within the given passages from their novels. Alexandra Robbins utilizes parallel structure in Secrets of the Tomb to exaggerate the “paradox” brought about by the “pins” (1).

From the article, “Responding, Really Responding”, Richard Straub explains the process of peer response. He taught me that it is important for a responder to give as much feedback as possible to the writer. For instance, when I would do response papers, I would give small simple comments, and then, the writer would always come back to me and ask about my comments. From what Straub shares, he explains that it is acceptable to write a lengthy comment as long as it is giving support to the writer. From now on, I plan on giving details in my comments, so that way my peers will have a better understanding of my suggestions.
Rhetoric is a tool students use to learn and analyse the reading more in depth. Rhetoric has many different sections to successfully use rhetoric, for an example there is the rhetorical triangle, the appeals, content and the intention. The rhetorical triangle is used to help the understand of the reading. The triangle has three sections: speaker, audience and the subject. The speaker is known as the persona, which means the character the speaker creates.The audience is who the reader is speaking too, who can relate or who the author wants the reading to speak too.
As a reader one has to know what to look for and identify the main idea and understand what the author is trying to argue. Before taking Writing 10 I felt I was a good reader and able to identify the main idea in a prompt, but little did I really know. After going through the research process and trying to identify reliable sources I have essentially cut out the unnecessary information and I go straight to the idea or argument being made by the author. As of before, I would focus on every detail of the writing. Having been assigned readings and having discussions about the readings during class, I soon realized that writing is about an argument being made with supporting evidence.
