Summary: READING WRITING tries to make the point that we all perform rhetorical analysis whenever we interact with language, that whether we are conscious of it or not, our linguistic exchange with the world around us is comprised of a sort of continual process of rhetorical analysis. What this text presents, then, is how to do skillfully what one must do anyway to live in socio-linguistic interaction with that world, and most specifically in its written form. Reading Writing presents example
s and analyses intended to be followed up with specific assignments of exercises for analysis either from the readings or from materials taken from the press of the moment. Local issues, political scandals, presidential and senatorial campaigns, current contro-versies on issues juridical, medical, ethical, educational, and social are all grist for the mill of rhetorical analysis.
