Introduction
Have you seen the critically acclaimed movie
Inception, where the protagonists explore a
dream within a dream? Well, thats another great
piece of work by the maestro Christopher Nolan.
But why are we talking about Inception right now?
Does that have anything to do with a rhetorical
analysis essay? Well, technically there is no
connection between the movie Inception and a
rhetorical analysis essay. However, a rhetorical
analysis is practically writing about a piece of
writing.
3
It is okay if you dont understand Inception,
but you may face some serious trouble if you are
a literature student who does not understand what
is a rhetorical analysis. Well, its a form of
essay that breaks a piece of content in several
segments and then describes how the segments work
together to create a particular effect. If you
are appearing for the Advanced Placement (AP)
English Literature and Composition Practice Exam,
the chances of facing this form of an essay are
pretty high. If you have no idea about how to
write a rhetorical analysis essay, just keep
reading to learn some useful tricks.

Understanding a Rhetorical Analysis Essay
Before we discuss the writing tips of rhetorical
analysis, it is important to acknowledge what a
rhetorical analysis actually is. You may find it
slightly different from all the critical analysis
essays that you have done earlier. So searching
what is an analytical essay or how to write an
analytical essay may not provide you with proper
results. A rhetorical analysis is a form of
essay that breaks down a particular piece of
content into parts to unveil the rhetorical
analysis.
5
Basically, your job as an essay writer is to
analyse the given text and then describe how all
the parts of that particular text work together.
While writing a rhetorical analysis, you need to
understand that the essay is neither a narrative
nor a reflective piece of writing. What you think
about the piece still matters, but you need to
ensure it is formed in compliance with the main
analysis. Analysis of non-fictional writings or
speeches is the simplest choice for a topic when
it comes to drafting a rhetorical analysis essay.
6
How to Prepare a Rhetorical Analysis?
  • While working on a rhetorical analysis of a text
    or a speech, you need to ask yourself the
    following questions
  • What did the author/speaker intend to say through
    the text or speech?
  • Who are the readers of the analysis you are going
    to present?
  • What was the core purpose of the text?
  • What result was expected by the author/speaker?

7
You need to keep these questions in mind while
you begin the work. However, that does not
conclude the pre-drafting process. Theres a lot
to do before you can actually start writing the
essay.
8
Identify the Soapstone
SOAPSTone, as you can guess, is an acronym that
represents the terms Speaker, Occasion, Audience,
Purpose, Subject and Tone of the particular
content. The term speaker indicates the name of
the author, while the term occasion refers to
the type of content and the context under which
the content was created. The term audience
refers to the readers, viewers or the listeners.
The purpose is what the author wants to achieve
in the content.
9
Examine the Appeals
Appeals or the modes of persuasion are considered
as the first classification of a rhetorical
strategy. It involves ethos, logos, and pathos.
If you are a literature student, you are already
familiar with these terms. Ethos is the ethical
appeals, which depend heavily on the credibility
of the writer (or the narrator. Logos, on the
other hand, describes logical appeals, which use
reasons to justify a certain opinion. Pathos.
10
Create an Analysis
After you consider the elements of SOAPSTone and
the modes of persuasion used by the
writer. After youre done with the analysis, you
should proceed to the writing part. Like any
other essay that you have done till date, a
rhetorical analysis essay also follows the
general structure of 5-6 paragraphs, divided into
three sections introduction, body and the
conclusion. Also, you need to define your thesis
statement.
11
Tips to Draft An Insightful Rhetorical Analysis
Essay
12
State your Intentions in the Introduction
Your major focus will be to establish your
argument in the body part, so keep the
introduction short, yet impactful. Describe the
purpose of the essay briefly, and while
mentioning the text, you are analyzing. The
thesis statement is usually stated in the
introduction only. So, translate your opinion
into a well-crafted thesis statement.
13
Organize the Paragraphs by Rhetorical Appeals
The body paragraphs of a rhetorical analysis are
usually segmented to explain each of the
rhetorical appeals. The order of these appeals
(logos, ethos and pathos) is not fixed. So if you
want to focus more on a particular mode of
persuasion, you can do that and then briefly
cover the other two modes following the major one.
14
Present the Analysis in Chronological Order
When you are stating your analysis of the text
part-by-part, mention the parts in the order they
appear in the text. An author usually chooses to
present the details in order for a purpose. So,
breaking the order may not be the best way to
address the document.
15
Support your Arguments with Evidence
The examiner will not consider your analysis as
legit if you fail to support your arguments with
enough evidence. In case of an analysis essay,
the text or the content itself serves as a source
of valuable pieces of evidence. In fact, the
direct quotations from the author are often used
by the essay writers to prove their arguments.
16
Wrap Things Neatly with the Conclusion
Drafting a rhetorical analysis conclusion is not
very different than drafting any other essay
conclusion. To ensure your readers understand
your analysis of the text, you should restate the
thesis and explain briefly how the analysis
fulfills the purpose of the essay. A rhetorical
essay is surely different than most of the essay
types you have dealt with previously. So it can
be difficult to get the drift in the beginning.
