Rhetorical analysis is an investigation into how someone uses his/her critical reading skills to analyze text. The objective of the rhetorical analysis is the study of how the author writes, instead of what the author wrote. At that point, we need to examine the method that the author uses to attain his goal. According to Jonah G. Willihnganz “A rhetorical analysis is an examination of how a text persuades us of its point of view. It focuses on identifying and investigating the way a text communicates, what strategies it employs to connect to an audience, frame an issue, establish its stakes, make a particular claim, support it, and persuade the audience to accept the claim”.

Pathos is used many times when James is trying to reach the reader 's emotional side. James Hamblin states “You can look back at your responses, remembering the good things and the feeling nostalgic or remembering the bad and feeling resilient” (Hamblin 3). He is telling the reader, when you look back at old messages, pictures, or notes they are going to have at one point either a memorable impact or an upsetting impact. By James saying this in his article he is using pathos by getting the reader to feel those emotions as if they were looking back at their memories right at that moment.
It is essential to captures the reader 's interest and this will be done by finding how to well write a thesis sentence that will want the readers to keep reading and find out more about the thesis. In “Does Texting Affect Writing?”, Cullington used voice markers to demonstrate what others had to say about texting. 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).
Get Happy, an article written by Walter Mosley is mainly based upon the idea that the government needs to become more involved in our lives in order to create true happiness within the country.

Rhetorical Analysis Writers as well as other artists inform, entertain, and persuade their audiences in many ways. Therefore, for a clear understanding of some pieces of work, one need to analyze the work, whether fiction or non-fiction to understand how different parts and elements work together in creating the needed effect. Use of literary elements such as ethos, pathos, logos, tone, and imagery are some of the techniques that bring out the intended purpose of the piece of work. The rhetorical situation is another essential area in rhetorical analysis. “Americans Don 't Have the Right to Bear Just Any Arms” by Kurt Lichtenwald shows how he relates to the audience in a manner that one can recognize and analyze.
The reason that I’m taking AP Literature is because I would like to understand different style of writing and how the author tries to sway the audience with their words.

While reading the assigned articles, Begley and Heilbroner, I left comments in the margins as well as underlining quotes that stuck out to me that I could potentially use in my essay. Another objective that I struggled with is the idea of properly combining my ideas with the ideas of others. I understand that doing this can make your paper stronger. It can help open more doors and help you go someplace in your paper you didn’t think you could go. I feel like it was easy for me to add quotes and to explain more of what I wanted to talk about, but it was a challenge to figure out paraphrasing and summarizing the ideas of others that I could use in my unit 3 paper without
I think, second characteristic of rhetorical discourse is more clear for me, because “Rhetoric is Adapted to an Audience” tells about the writer should be more careful thinking, planning about the future, and sharing the feeling with audiences. For example; audiences could be large and small group people, your classmates, and your coworkers. The important thing is adjusting your paper with an audience in mind. The audience that hears, reads, discusses, and shares your message or paper. It says, “Even some highly trained writers or speaks make a mistake such on Wayne Booth”.
Grant-Davie describes thoroughly the term rhetorical situation and how the development of the definition and its constituents has contributed to the discovery of the motives and responses behind any discourse. The analysis of rhetorical situations could determine the outer or inner influences of the rhetors, the audience, and their particular constraints. Grant Davie supports his claims by using the earlier definitions of scholars and teachers as his foundation. He also addresses his own analysis drawn by life experienced discourses which it also helps the reader understand the causes of rhetorical situations. This is important because it teaches any writer or reader to analyze a situation and think about the options and paths it could lead
