Imagine being boiled alive like lobsters, “scraping the sides of the kettle as it thrashes around” (Wallace 62). David Foster Wallace doesn’t hold back with his use of details and imagery as he engages the audience describing the Maine Lobster Festival in his article “Consider the Lobster”, which is published in Gourmet Magazine. Wallace uses the title, “Consider the Lobster” not just as the title but as his thesis. He wants to get the reader to think constantly throughout the article about the morality of eating a lobster. Wallace uses rhetoric to describe what occurs at the Maine Lobster Festival as well as the ethics of lobster eating and he does this in his article effectively.
“Consider the Lobster,” by David Foster Wallace, explains in great detail how the lobster industry is celebrated in Maine and many other mid-coast regions. David F. Wallace mentions the region’s two main communities are Camden and Rockland whom host the festival every summer at Harbor Park with a pleasant view of the water. Camden is described to have a many five star restaurants and phenomenal B&Bs to enjoy and feast upon.

David Foster Wallace starts his speech with the use of anecdote through his quick narrative about two young fish. Wallace tells the story of two fish who encounter an older fish who asks “How’s the water?”, which prompts one of the younger fish to later ask “What the hell is water?”, indirectly describing the idea of a link between immaturity and a lack of understanding of surrounding environment. While this anecdote serves as a simple thought provoking prelude to Wallace’s speech, it’s actual purpose is to open the minds of Wallace’s audience to better perceive their surroundings by demonstrating that some of the most obvious realities in life are the hardest to observe. Wallace uses the strategy of anecdote to illustrate this principle and build the foundation for the life lessons later detailed in the body of his speech.
