Rhetorical analysis "is more interested in a literary work for what it does than for what it is."
- Edward P.J. Corbett
  • What does a literary work do?
  • Freewrite about it.


  • Building Themes of Freedom
    • Get into groups of three and examine your drafts
      • Look for language that identifies specific freedoms or ideas about freedom
      • As a group, select three freedoms that are relevant to your own lives and your history. (Try to get creative with these!)
        • This can include your family, your friends, or any secondary discourse community that you may or may not have identified in your Autobiography!
      • As a class, we'll compile a list for you to refer to as you search for ideas of freedom in Charlotte Temple.
    • When we've got a good list together, I'd like to discuss what themes of freedom you've already observed!
