In general I got positive feedback on my second essay, but there are also things I can improve in future rhetorical analyses.
My analysis of the image – an example of pathos, should be more detailed. I should tell how this image affect the readers directly, in stead of just pointing out that it is an example of pathos. I could have found a more specific example to show how this appeal affect the audience.
When I write about kairos, I should also have been a little more detailed. I should perhaps have mentioned how the editorial analyze and criticize opponent views.
A pattern I see is that I want to mention a lot of things in my assignment, but then some of the points doesn’t get explained in enough details. So I should be better at choosing fewer things to analyse, and then really analyse these in deep.
I understood all my feedback comments and will try to improve these patterns in future writing assignments.
Analysis of ethos
Stina Troest – danish runner.
Her instagram page consist of a lot of running pictures. It is clear that she runs at a high level, because she has pictures from big competitions – like the olympics. Earlier her event was the 400 meter hurdles, but she has switch to run the 800 meter now. Her ethos is high in running contents because she is so fast.
She also have a lot of images where she is together with her boyfriend, friends or family. These images contribute to show that she values more than just running. She seems kind and carrying in these pictures, and this strengthen her overall ethos.
