Allegory of the cave Rhetorical Analysis

  • introduce the text by including a short summary (roughly 1-3 sentences). You may want to lead into the summary by briefly introducing the topic of the argument, providing background about the topic, or raising a question for the readers to think about.
  • Include a thesis statement in your introduction that makes an assertion about the effectiveness of the writer’s argument and identifies the criteria on which you are basing your assertion.
  • The thesis will need to identify some of the author’s rhetorical strategies; these will be the criteria for your evaluation and will become the points you develop in your body paragraphs. Because this paper is only 3-5 pages, it’s best to focus on or three criteria, no more.
