For this assignment, students will write a 1,000 word essay that analyzes the rhetorical strategies used in one of the songs from Hamilton the Musical. Rhetoric is a term that is broadly used, but its most classical definition is the art of persuasion. If you are asked to write a rhetorical analysis, you are really being asked to identify the particular strategies that an author is using to appeal to or persuade a given audience. Typically, the three components of the rhetorical situation are defined as the writer/speaker, the audience, and the message.
