For this writing assignment I'm writing a Rhetorical Analysis essay for a lower division college writing. The prompt I am answering is
Write an essay arguing how and why persuasion operates effectively in one of the text options below. In other words, describe one of the rhetorical triangles at play in the text(s) and explain how and why it works. In particular, consider the effectiveness of the rhetor’s ethos in achieving his or her purpose.
The texts i chose are "The Imp of Perverse" by Edgar Allan Poe, and "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allan Poe. My thesis arguing that Poe's purpose is connecting these two stories.
I want to receive feedback on how to strengthen my arguement and how to clear my language . Plus I am aware that I have few diction problems (using inaccurate words for the context), so i help with finding substitutes for these words. Also, I need help with building my summary since I am done with my introduction and my body paragraphs. Thanks.1
“The Poe’s Exceptional”
If you have read few stories from “The Best of Poe”, you would be aware of Poe’s drive
of constructing tales from the psyches of erratic narrators whose deeds are usually vicious. In
these stories, Poe plays the role of a detective whose incarnating the psych’s mind. In “The Imp
of Perverse”, Poe represents what he calls “Perverseness” that he defines as the tendency to do
something just because we should not urging us to do things for no reasonable cause. A
collection of connected evidence on the effects of perverseness is represented in the paragraphs.
Eventually, those evidences lead us to the story of the woman’s murder that was blamed on the
soul of perverse. The odd part of “The Imp of Perverse” compared to other Poe’s writings is the
inclination to focus more on the theory and less on the tale, making these text more essay like
which confuses a person who has read other Poe’s Stories. Yet, most scholars describe “The Imp
of Perverse” as a tale. It is important to note that its purpose might differ than this of a tale. It is
possible that his purpose is leading those who have read his other stories to the answers of
questions he left unanswered in his other stories like “The Black Cat”. He funds this purpose by
purposely implicating the oddness of his striatal from his usual storyteller ethos to an ethos of a
philosophical proving a psychological theory.
