Before beginning this assignment, please read the Rhetorical Analysis Essay Prompt . For this assignment, you will produce three thesis statements, one of which will (after some refinement) become the thesis of your essay. Accompanying each thesis statement should be five guiding questions that will help you brainstorm the content of your argument. Read AGWR pages 124-127 and 213-214 to get a clear understanding of what goes into a strong thesis statement. The gist is that your thesis should be specific, arguable, and provide a roadmap to your argument’s structure. Here’s an example of a decent thesis statement: Huxley, through the mouths of his male characters, uses the term ‘pneumatic’ to describe the sexual prowess of Lenina and other women, and good sex generally, in the novel. This usage has a dual satirical purpose: 1) it presents sex as something mechanistic, like a process involving a pneumatic pump, and 2) it draws on the secondary meaning of ‘pneumatic,’ namely, ‘of or relating to the spirit,’ in order to emphasize the gnosticizing of human sexuality. Both implications highlight the dehumanization of the citizens of Brave New World. This thesis is specific enough that I’ll need to rely on concrete evidence from the text in order to make my case. It is arguable because reasonable people might disagree with my conclusions (particularly the claim about gnosticism). And it gestures toward the structure of my argument, that it moves from analyzing specific detail to more general, interpretive claims. Last of all, this thesis is concerned with rhetorical analysis, and not simply literary analysis, because it analyzes a specific feature of the text (diction) with respect to other components of the rhetorical situation (authorial intent and effect on audience). And here’s an example of a couple of guiding questions to help jumpstart research: 1) In what context is the word pneumatic first used in the novel? Does it’s meaning change as the narrative advances? 2) The term is obviously meant to be amusing. What rhetorical purpose does the humor serve? Is the humor stable and continuous throughout the novel?
