essay to make a concluding statement) 2013s AP graders advice for the Rhetorical Analysis Prompt The analysis question, provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their practical understanding of rhetorical analysis. Like the synthesis question, the analysis question requires students to integrate reading and writing skills. Rhetorical reading entails comprehending both the meaning and purpose of an authors argument and its intended audience(s), and students are asked to demonstrate rhetorical comprehension of a text by explaining how the authors rhetorical decisions promote or hinder successful accomplishment of the purpose.

In short, rhetorical analysis means explaining not only what writers are saying but also why and how they are saying it. Rhetorical Analysis = How, Why, So What HOW? What techniques doe the writer choose to present the material? WHY ? Are the choices effective and appropriate for the intended audience? SO WHAT? What is accomplished or created?

Speaker Rhetorical devices/ strategies/ E,P, and L (how?) Audience (why?) Purpose (so what?) In his letter to Thomas Jefferson (1791), Benjamin Banneker argues that slavery is morally wrong and

that America needs to change this vile tradition. He uses juxtaposition to compare free men to slaves and uses allusion to the Bible and Americans religion to appeal to Jeffersons conscience, while also intelligently using parallel syntax and polysyndeton to highlight free mens and slaves similar attitudes toward freedom. With desperation and passion, Banneker stresses that slavery should be abolished in hopes that whites and blacks could all be free, both in 1791 and in the future. Banneker starts off his essay entreating Jefferson to reflect on Americas struggle for independence from the arms and

tyranny of the British Crown. Benjamin logically asserts that if the colonists had a right to freedom, then slaves should also have the same right. He uses the phrase, State of Servitude to compare the colonists to slaves, purposefully capitalizing the words in order to emphasize this connection. Benjamin also alludes to Heaven because he wants Jefferson to realize that the slaves truly are deserving of freedom and tranquility which was mercifully received from Heaven. Slaves were taught the grace of God even back in 1791, and Banneker utilizes this to prove that slaves were allowed to receive the blessing of Heaven just like Americans were. Banneker very astutely remarks that Jefferson understands the

injustice of the state of slavery, continuing with his assertion that the colonists could understand the right and need for freedom. However, he now accuses Jefferson of his scandalous decree by alluding to the Declaration itself, where Jefferson himself wrote that, all men are created equal. This allusion very effectively points to the mistaken mindset of the colonists who refuse to acknowledge slaves right for freedom. Banneker impressively uses Jeffersons own knowledge and feelings against slavery, which establishes ethos, or his credibility, not through his own knowledge, but through Jeffersons. This witty use of ethos only strengthens Bannekers argument because it effectively convinces all readers, including Jefferson, that slavery is logically wrong.

In addition, Banneker asserts that slavery is morally wrong through polysyndeton combined with strong adjectives with the purpose of appealing to all readers consciences. Banneker writes a long-winded sentence explaining the colonists realization of their rights for freedom and confirming their belief in Gods equal and impartial distribution of these precious rights. Since most people value freedom, it is natural to assume the readers of Bannekers letter also value these rights of liberty and free possession. Therefore, Bannekers long statement about mankinds natural longing for freedom is extremely effective when it is juxtaposed, after a semicolon, with his clear description of the agony, under groaning captivity and cruel oppression the colonists had inflicted upon the slaves. This statement by Banneker strongly convicts the reader, Jefferson especially and other colonists of the time period, the slaves light to light, face to face with the

readers morals and sense of sympathy for the slaves. Banneker in the next paragraph again appeals to the readers kindness and benevolence when he asks the readers to put [their] souls in [the slaves] stead both alluding to the Bible and evoking more sympathy for the slaves condition. Bannekers astute essay to Mr. Jefferson was extremely effective at depicting the abject conditions of the slaves while confronting the colonists mindset on slavery at the same time it appeals to the minds of future readers to understand past conditions and influence future events because of Bannekers influential words.
