In the article “Backpacks vs. Briefcases: Steps toward Rhetorical Analysis” by Carroll, many informations were completely new to my mind and never thought about them. Even though I know myself that I always do analysis such as, on people, things or places, all what was mentioned about rhetorical analysis, was fully explained to me new knowledge. On this article, it demonstrated how rhetorical analysis is dependent upon several things we need to know about, which they are Context, Exigence, Audience and Constraints. Also the needed of a methods to analysis anything, clarified to me the way that I will look through what I am analyzing. Logos, pathos and ethos, helped me to understand how rhetor delivers his/her requirements. From now on I will be more focusing on what I am going to analyze or even when watching or reading.
