各位留学生大家好!今天100Due教员组给大家分享一篇essay代写范文,主要内容是讲:对某一篇文章的分析既需要对其论证目的进行解释,也需要对作者用来支持该论证目的的修辞方法进行分析。议论文的目的是作者写作某篇文章的初衷,修辞方法是作者成功写作的途径。从这两个方面对某篇文章进行分析,有助于读者更好地理解该篇文章,从而说明分析该篇文章的必要性。因此本文将从两个方面进行分析。


Introduction

It is known that the analysis of a certain article calls for an explanation of its argumentative goals as well as an analysis of rhetorical methods the author use to support that argumentative goal. Argumentative goals are the reasons why the author would like to compose a certain article in the first beginning and the rhetorical methods can be seen as the way used in the process of the author’s successful composition of that article. The analysis of a certain article from those two aspects can help the audience understand the article better, which can help indicate the necessity to analyze that specific article. Therefore the following will analyze the paper from the appointed two aspects.

Analysis of Stringers Real Bad Tuesday

First and foremost comes the analysis of the argumentative goals of Stringer’s article Real Bad Tuesday. When the argumentative goals of the article are involved, there is no doubt that its genre has to be included. To put it more specifically, the genre of this article is Confession and the whole article concentrates on depicting a bad Tuesday as has been experienced by the author in one way or another. Detailed speaking, the reason why the author would like to compose the article lies in that he would like to depict as carefully as possible toward the bad Tuesday he has undergone. The argument is right the very sentence that “I was having a real bad Tuesday” (147) as has appeared several times in the article and the rest part of the article is for the depiction of how and why the specific Tuesday is bad.

With the analysis of the argumentative goals of Stringer’s article Real Bad Tuesday being mentioned in the above, what follows is the analysis of the rhetorical methods that the author uses to support the aforementioned argumentative goal. The first rhetorical method employed by the author is repetition including both repetition of certain words and repetition of some sentences. In order to better persuade the audience of a bad Tuesday experienced, the author has repeatedly used several times of bad Tuesday throughout the whole essay, like “I was having a real bad Tuesday” (147), “That’s the kind of bad Tuesday I’m having” (152), and “No doubt about it! I was having a real bad Tuesday” (153). Furthermore, the inner thoughts of the author has as well used the repetition of sentences, including “Lord, don’t let me do what I’m thinking” (154) and “Lord, don’t let me do it” (155), which can imply the inner panic of the author to some extent. At the same time, the repetition of certain words can be found by the repeated use of the three words “Tall, dark and ragged” in two sentences that “Tall, dark, and ragged, cop money scrunched in his fist” (148) and that “when I spot Tall, Dark, and Ragged heading back my way” (148). The repeated use of these three words can help emphasize the hatred that the guys selling Street News have toward the cop. In addition, the repeated sound of five shots in the sentence “Then I hear PAP! PAP! PAP! PAP! PAP! ” (150) can really add to the degree for how the Tuesday is terrible at that time. Apparently, the repeated five shots can unconsciously make one afraid and bring panic to people so as to point out how bad the specific Tuesday is.

Secondly, the author has used the rhetorical device called metaphor. The author has metaphorically compared the process for him to sell Street News as the game of playing hide-and-seek because it has spent him quite long time for him to sell it and the time is described in this way in the article as “all morning and most of the afternoon” (147). From this, it can be readily detected of the difficulty for the audience to sell Street News. Another example of the use of metaphor can be found in the sentence “It’s a kind of radar we have” (148). The word “radar” in this sentence refers to the tacit understanding and resonance as have been formed among the Street News sellers. Concerning the use of metaphor, the most impressive one used is in the sentence that “I as good as run, eating up sidewalk in long, rapid strides” (149). It is really hard for one to imagine how fast one is running that can make it looks like eating up sidewalk. There is no doubt that the surprisingly fast speed can be used to imply the efforts have been made by the author to get rid of the cops and he has no choice but to run as fast as possible in order not to be caught.

Moreover, the author has used antithesis to describe the terrible Tuesday. The first example of the use of antithesis is the expression that “They know what’s up. They know what I’m there for” (148), which focuses on the depiction of the attitude of the surrounding people. Even though those kids are clear about my purpose, they take no notice about it and they are so indifferent that their only behavior is to “eye me with bemused derision”. In our mind, what those kids have to do is to give a hand to the author so that he can quickly find the ones he is desired for. Thus the indifferent attitude of the kids has also suggested the difficulty for the author to sell Street News in turn. The second example of the use of the antithesis method can be easily seen from the expression that “Their jeans are just a bit too clean. Their sneakers are too fresh” (149), which has show the differences in the appearance of the author and the other ones selling Street News. They can still pay attention to the use of combs and razors while the author has already been too tired and thirsty to care about it at all.

Furthermore, simile has also been used by the author in the sentence that “eyes scanning left and right like two satellite dishes” (149). In this sentence, the word “like” is obvious for the identification of the use of simile, which can help understand the concentration of the other guy who is selling Street News the same as the author. The second instance of the use of simile can be found in the sentence that “and it looks like we’re all headed for the same place” (149). The sign “look like” represents the use of simile and here this simile aims to show that the fierce competition exists among the guys that sell Street News.

Last but not the least, flashback has also been utilized in the article when the author hears five shots and the sentences in the article are “This has happened to me before. Later one night several years ago in midtown….” (150). Based on the use of this flashback, a fair knowledge can be obtained that the incidence of shooting event is quite common and many people have even died for being shot.

Conclusion

To sum up, a reasonable conclusion can be drawn that this article does have used various rhetorical methods in order to reach its argumentative goal of depicting a bad Tuesday. And the applied rhetorical methods are primarily repetition, metaphor, antithesis, simile, flashback and so on. There is no doubt that there is also the use of other kinds of rhetorical methods in the article as have not been listed in the above, which calls for further exploration.
