In the Introduction, Jay Heinrichs provides the reader with a foundation about the upcoming concepts on rhetoric, persuasion, seduction, and argument used in our everyday lives and in writing. Throughout this section, he discusses rhetoric that he encounters throughout life and without rhetoric it is merely impossible. He tries to go through a non rhetorical day, but it turns “out to be pretty darn rhetorical, but nonetheless agreeable” (11). Rhetoric prevents fighting, because without an agreement, people use fighting as a way of arguing. So, although people may see rhetoric as manipulation and/or seduction, it provides an agreement, within an otherwise violent, aggravating argument. With the use of rhetoric both sides can come to a consensus.

There have been many problems in society over human history. Speeches have been one solution to these problems. Speakers attempt to have the audience reach a specific conclusion after hearing the speech. They do this by using rhetoric. “Rhetoric is the art of framing an argument so that it can be appreciated by an audience.” –Philip Johnson. Many speeches can be pointed at as an example of this, such as the famous “I Have a Dream” by Martin Luther King Jr. Another example that is not as well-known is John F. Kennedy’s “Civil Rights Address”.
Isocrates and Aristotle both displayed an evident passion for this thing called “rhetoric.” Aristotle said that, “Rhetorical study, in its strict sense, is concerned with the modes of persuasion” (Aristotle, 2). Isocrates and Aristotle argued that this kind of writing was an art. By favoring an art definition over a science, they suggested that writing takes imagination as well as concentration. They illustrated that the language is constantly moving, and the mind of an author should be open and explorative. Isocrates and Aristotle both believed in the influence of sound rhetoric; furthermore, they insist upon a strategic education to further what they consider to be true rhetoric.

Q1) What dilemmas faced Augustine of Hippo regarding rhetoric? What was Augustine 's response to these dilemmas?
Rhetoric is an incredibly powerful tool capable of seducing even the most obdurate of people. As one of the most illustrious playwrights ever, Shakespeare was no stranger to the power of rhetoric. Rhetoric served as the fountainhead of Shakespearian allure. We watch the dramatic works of Shakespeare because we enjoy having our emotions manipulated; we enjoy the catharsis and self-reflection that accompanies a trip to the theater. Shakespeare truly was a master manipulator, but his manipulation was generally beneficial. While Shakespeare uses rhetoric to create art, Iago uses it to cause destruction and pain. Shakespeare’s Othello can be used as a means of exploring the dangerous power of rhetoric and gaining insight into the ethical role it
Rhetoric, the art of using written, spoken, and body language to persuade another. Often by way of hyperbole, a figure of speech which involves exaggerated statements, emotional or motivational appeal, and logic to support a claim. In politics today, the use of rhetoric has become more evident in the fight to repeal and replace Obamacare. Trump promises to Americans a better healthcare at a fraction of a cost. However, this battle for healthcare came to an obstruct halt, when House Republicans decide to pull the plug on Trumpcare. In the YouTube video presented in this lecture, "President Trump Speaks About Decision to Pull Health Care Bill (3/24/2017)." I will explore the rhetoric Trump uses to defend his failed American Health Care Act.
Another dominant precedent of John Steinbeck’s use of influential language is the rhetorical question. Throughout the story John Steinbeck is questioning the morals and right doings of the congress. Steinbeck uses the rhetorical question to again question congress, “Surely Congress has the right to ask me anything on any subject. The question is: Should Congress take advantage of that right?” (ll. 14-15). By using a rhetorical question John Steinbeck forces the reader to think and come to a conclusion on their own rather than a textual analysis. By forcing the reader to come to a conclusion on their own is ultimately more effective because it makes the reader believe that they have formulated their own opinion. By using this tactic John Steinbeck
Authors use rhetorical writing to get their points across to the audience in a variety of ways. This particular article, Donald Trump Just Stopped Being Funny by Matt Taibbi, published on RollingStone.com on August 21, 2015, provides multiple examples of rhetorical writing. The main point the author wants to get across to the audience is clearly stated in the title, but he used many forms of rhetoric to do so. In this example, the author successfully uses rhetoric to lay out his argument to the reader.
Yet the question that is largely unanswered still remains; why does Steinbeck choose to portray these characters as effective parallels through the meticulous use of allusion, diction, and parallel
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. The last point of the rhetorical triangle is subject, the subject is simply what it is about, or the evidence that is provine in the reading.
