Below is a recent editorial by Thomas Friedman, “Only Trump Can Trump Trump,” which explores the candidacy and lessons of Donald Trump. Read Friedman’s editorial to discuss in class. Remember that we’re looking at it from an argument form *first* — Structure — followed by Diction, to determine if via word choice and language the author is biased. After that we consider tempo: is the author using speed of language effectively to make me focus on his words at the right moment? Finally, we look at Tone: is the author formal? Informal? Is he using slang or other non-academic writing?
After you complete your discussion (linked below), read “Out of Africa,” a two-part editorial essay Friedman recently completed. Then, in an essay of no more than 1,200 words (900 word minimum), you will write a rhetorical analysis of the essay, being sure to touch on the following:
1.) Identify the argument. What is the thesis of the essay? (It may be implied or explicit.)
2.) Identify the structure of the argument. How is Friedman presenting the parts of his argument?
3.) Examine the essay’s diction. Begin with word choice and then, looking at examples, dialogue, and sensory details determine what it is Friedman is wanting you to feel.
4.) Examine the tone. Friedman is a master at conveying his tone, and he will frequently change tones between pieces–and often, as we’ve seen, within the same piece. What tone is he seeking to strike?
5.) Finally, refer back to Friedman’s argument as you identified in the first item. Does he make his argument? Or does his argument fall short? For more information on Only Trump Can Trump Trump check out:
