A close examination of ten powerful rhetorical devices: 1. Logos, 2. Ethos, 3. Pathos, 4. Thesis, 5. Distinction, 6. Procatalepsis, 7. Irony, 8. Rhetorical Question, 9. Hypophora, & 10. Anecdote. We look at the definition of these devices then explore how Professor Gordon Marino expertly applies said devices in his essay "A Life Beyond 'Do What You Love.'" Great for writers of all ages!
