Rhetorical argument summary on baldwin pdf.

you’ll write a brief for each argument we read for class (note: there’s always two). Remember, you’re briefing the context (i.e. rhetorical situation) in which these arguments were asserted. Accordingly, you’ll account for the following (and see the attached student sample):

  • Author
  • Rhetor
  • Purpose
  • Exigency

Note: The sample brief I attached includes two other components (sub-claims and strategies)–you may disregard those sections. You are only required to account for the rhetorical situation. Also the attached Machiavelli pdf is the format of how it should be.
