Additions:
**Describe** both messages, including the context of the message, and rhetorical situation set up in each message. 300 - 500 words or so for each - and concluding with a characterization of each message. Get in close enough to see the rhetorical situation is being defined: what position the rhetor is placing the reader in. You get a glimmer of being through when you can start to define possible rhetorical differences in the two - when you start to move towards analysis.
**Analyze** by applying the classical rhetorical search model (chap 9). There are a number of starting points to consider. Systematically search through the two emails to discover specific rhetorical moves used by the rhetoric. Choose a way in that your observations of the two email messages suggest might produce interesting results. Then choose a second approach to see if that gains you anything else.
- strategies of delivery: consider genres (formal business letter and form letter) as a start.
- use of appeals: pathos, ethos, logos
- lines of argument: what case is being argued and how
- stylistic moves: prose style, figures, and other devices, pp 141 - 144, plus others you notice
Analysis is naming the parts, looking at their relationship to one another, and discovering the rhetorical patterns in the message. You're looking for patterns, so refer to the Stoner and Perkins, chap 5, for some of the possible sets of patterns. Both exhibits use multiple strategies and appeals. 500 - 750 words, or a little more
No need to come to any conclusions in the analysis.
Deletions:
**Describe** both messages, as well as the rhetorical situation set up in each message. You'll need to get in close enough to see the rhetorical situation is being defined: what position the rhetor is placing the reader in. To help you describe, use either a planned survey or headings from chap 4: consider specific circumstance, similar circumstances, similar messages, rhetor and audience. Keep going until you can characterize the message and rhetorical situation pretty well in a couple of rough paragraphs.
**Analyze** using classical rhetorical concepts, including
- appeals
- strategies: narrative in one or perhaps both
- stylistic moves: figures, other devices
- strategies of delivery: consider genres (formal business letter v. form letter) as a start.
You're looking for patterns, so refer to the Stoner and Perkins for some of the possible sets of patterns you might look for.
Both exhibits use more than one appeal, so you'll need to consider how they are used.
