What appeals or techniques does the argument use—emotional, logical, ethical?
A rhetorical analysis is a close reading of a text to figure out exactly how it functions.
You perform a rhetorical analysis by analyzing how well the components of an argument work together to persuade or move an audience.

In every case, you’ll need to focus your rhetorical analysis on elements that stand out or make the piece intriguing or problematic.
