Expository writing m.3.3 rhetorical precise

MLA Format, No grammar Errors, must be accurately done, on time and no Plagiarism.

Read Audre Lorde’s “Transformation of Silence into Language and Action.” 


Write a rhetorical precise after reading the article.  A rhetorical précis differs from a summary in that it is a less neutral, more analytical condensation of both the content and method of the original text. 

If you think of a summary as primarily a brief representation of what a text says, then you might think of the rhetorical précis as a brief representation of what a 

text both says and does. Although less common than a summary, a rhetorical précis is a particularly useful way to sum up your understanding of how a text works rhetorically. A handout that shows the process as well as an example is provided.
