Rhetorical Analysis

In the 11th grade I wrote a couple poems for a writing class, one in particular stands out, whether that is from its outstandingly outrageous title or if just the substance of the work was memorable. The House With one Window, a rather odd title, started as an idea, and like many idea’s it grew into something useful, specifically the answer for my greatest task at the moment I wrote it. Due dates seem to always come on the wrong days and much to my surprise a poem was due the next morning. Procrastination has an upside and that is at least in my experience that the best writing can result, and that day I wrote a poem entitled The House With one Window. I thought to myself what that meant it seemed to much like a trap or a sick dream, somewhere that one might be stuck and cursed to look out a window a form of torture. I gave into this idea and decided to put a person inside this house, someone longing to leave but cannot, the reason I left to the imagination, but I implanted the idea in the writing. Good things were seen outside the window but always the person longed for them but they could not leave. Similarly to myself writing the poem I could not leave the constraints of the deadline, I had to think of something, so why not try to assign meaning to something otherwise meaningless. Living in the house with one window then became the reason that the person could not leave, and with it also being the reason that they want to leave creates a very interesting and perhaps stupid issue. Perhaps this idea was just a result of a highschool student needing to turn in a poem in the morning for ten points of credit and should be looked past, but I believe that there is stuff to learn from my experience or at least stuff for myself to learn. Could I be crazy for the idea? Or was it just the person inside the house? Was I the person inside the house? Did I feel trapped? What motivated such an odd idea? I can only conclude that it is possible that I might have been the character I was trapping in the house with one window, wanting to escape, but not knowing what I wanted to escape to, after all a single window does not allow one to learn very much about what's on the other side. When I imagined this house as I wrote it was a simple white room with no door but a small circular window, with a cross beam in the window. The simplicity and lack of stuff would likely make one go crazy in just hours or days but imagine weeks, months, and even years of just looking out the window as being the only form of entertainment. The poem described some things seen outside the window from nature, these however were much more foggy in my mind, almost as if the window had fogged up from standing beside it and breathing on it for too long. In the end I wrote the poem but the person was left in the house with one window, leaving me to wonder if I’m still in that house, feeling trapped possibly with a glimpse of my future being held hostage by that glimmer of hope just out of reach. I often ask the question if this person has any hope, and an answer is hard for me to give, just as I felt trapped and focused on the due date that seemed just out of reach. Something happened, the due date passed, and a new due date was assigned along with a different assignment. The very thing I longed for always put me back in the house with one window, I turned in the assignment at the beginning of class and by the end of class the teacher had assigned another poem. Is there a way out or is it just like I left the poem with the person stuck inside, still wanting out. Could the window be fake? Could what I’m longing for not be real? Do I expect things that can never be given to me? I could be the one putting myself back in the house with one window always greedy and wanting more, never stopping to look at what I have, but always focusing on the window to a “better life,” maybe it’s my fault. If the due date is getting me stuck in the house with one window, what if I finished the assignment early allowing myself to enjoy the moment of being done before I have more to do. There just might be a way out of the house with one window.

In conclusion my situation influenced my writing in a way that I did not realize at first, the ideas I unknowingly took from my own experience and placed into a homework assignment that I had procrastinated on is very surprising. I can relate to A House With One Window, I can see myself inside wanting to go out yet stuck by the same thing that offers me a glimpse of what is on the other side. Will I always be the person inside the house with one window or is there a way out, some way to get to what you’re longing for without longing for something else that just puts you back there. Will I ever be satisfied, or will I be that person that i created when I wrote the poem. Is there anything I can do to get out? I believe that I can get out, perhaps by focusing on the room instead of the window getting through the present instead of focusing on the future, looking around the room, and even enjoying it could be the first step. And who knows maybe just maybe the room has a door that I did not notice before when I was focused on the window.

Running Head: RHETORICAL SITUATION ANALYSIS

RHETORICAL SITUATION ANALYSIS

Rhetorical Situation Analysis

Emma Taylor

Andrews University

Introduction

The English language is a huge part of almost every American’s life, and growing up here in Michigan is no different. Knowing how to use language effectively can be tricky, seeing as there's so many different ways to communicate. In politics, ads, and commercials we see persuasive language. Communication is everywhere, from day to day conversations to written literature. Understanding these forms of communications can help you dissect the situations that come with them. Understanding the dissection of these situations can help us as people form how we react.

Summary

The rhetorical situation I have chosen to review is a journal entry I wrote my senior year of highschool where I talked about quarantine and how it had been affecting me. At the time this journal was written quarantine was new, and everything in the world was changing daily. I was scared and nervous about how my life and those around me would carry on and how “normal” was no more. I felt as though everything I had been looking forward to had been ripped away from me, as if it were some sort of punishment. This was a selfish feeling, seeing as others in this world were suffering far more than I was, but this feeling was still very prominent.

In this entry I wrote:

“What's hurting me the most during this pandemic is the heart breaking fact that I won’t get to spend the little time I had left with my teachers and friends who I might not get to see for a long time. Finding relief for this feeling hasn’t been easy. Calls, text, and the occasional spotting at work don’t always cut it and they definitely don’t make up for the time we’ve lost. However, the communication does bring a smile to my face and make me forget what's going on for a while. To make sure I’m not focused on these negative emotions I have also found myself playing video games, watching new movies/videos on youtube, and drawing. Right now when I look in the mirror I see myself, of course, but not in the everyday get ready for school-self. I see myself now as someone I didn’t know before. She’s older, a little stressed, and tired. However she's also smart, strong, and ready to figure out a way to get through all this. In my home right now I have taken the time to grow plants, mainly because I got a hedgehog planter for easter. I feel at the moment that the plant itself is “me” during this time. I feel this way because it is taking it’s time to grow. I myself have taken my time and gotten comfortable enough to grow. I have applied to jobs and colleges because I finally feel comfortable enough to do so. Which is a major plus to this lock down! Right now I am working on schoolwork since today (4/20/20) online schooling has begun.”

Echology

As I dissect my journal entry I begin to see all those emotions as I look back on the day I wrote this. Holding myself back from tears in order to put my frustrations into words. I had lost three months of time in one night, and was truly hurting. The problem of my situation wasn’t my emotions, but how the quarantine for the coronavirus pandemic had affected me personally. The emotions I had been feeling had all been too much, and writing about them would help me let them out.

Exigence

In the journal entry I had explained the frustrations I was having with what had been going on. I felt as though my control of my life was taken from me and waved in my face. My exigence was the quarantine’s effects on my and the events around me. Looking back on this I see how I’ve changed and adapted to the new way that is “normal”. I see who I was and who I am now as the same yet completely different person. I have some of the same frustrations, but at the same time I have come to terms with them. I have let myself get angry, sad, and happy. All for the sake of accepting change. No one warns you of how life will change so drastically whilst you are changing drastically. Not knowing if or when this will all end still has me on edge, but it’s easier to manage now.

Audience

The audience for this journal wasn’t really expected. I didn’t even think I’d look back on it ever again. This journal entry was just sort of a venting session meant to let out all the feelings that had been haunting my mind for days on end. Each day that passed with an ever so changing schedule and news story had me so broken that it was all just covering me like an itchy blanket. This venting session wasn't intended for anyone, at all. It wasn’t a prayer to god, or a letter to a friend. It wasn’t even for me to look back on. It was just something to write in order to let my brain rest.

Constraints

The feeling of loss and not having control over my life and what was happening in it was my constraints. While writing this journal entry it was late at night, my boyfriend was asleep, and I was unable to rest my head. No matter how hard I let myself cry it out of how long my boyfriend let me vent, the feeling didn't leave. So I opened my docs app and began writing. I never pictured life becoming different. I wasn’t exactly happy with how life was going before, but I had never pictured such a drastic change so fast, especially while I’m trying to finish off my highschool career and make up my mind about college. On the bright side this quarantine has shown me what I want to do with my life and where I want to go.

Conclusion

Looking back on this jornal entry and dissecting it in order to more understand it has shown me a lot. As I felt the world was crumbling it was actually a new beginning. It might not have been the smoothest transition into adulthood, but it’s what helped push me to what I should do with my life, what’s best for me, what I needed. Growing up I was afraid of life. I didn’t want to grow up and deal with things my parents struggle with to this day. The sudden jolt of quarantine has shown me that no matter what I go through I can make it through.

ENG 115

September 16th, 2020

Rhetorical Analysis of my Journal Entry from August 13th, 2014: While reviewing the requirements for this paper and looking for a piece to analyze I came across

many things I wrote over the years. This particular entry I chose was on a journal app I have on

my phone where I write most of my thoughts and ideas. This particular entry was accompanied

by a picture of the things I had in front of me at the time, my surroundings. On August 13th of

2014, we had been living in Columbus, Ohio for a month. We have recently moved from Atlanta

where my husband was unable to find a job for a while after we got married. We decided to put

our belongings in our small secondhand car and travel to Ohio. My husband had some old church

friends that were open to lending us a room so we could live there while we find jobs and could

rent a place for ourselves.

After of few nights living there, we noticed that the house had a cockroach infestation. We were

grateful for the place to stay but that didn’t make the daily battle against these beasts easier.

This entry was originally in Spanish, but I translated it the best I could.

I wrote:

“Today is one of those days where I just want to sleep, not think about anything. I feel lost and

angry. I wish I could have money so we could get out of this place full of roaches. I spend my

days fighting with each one of these creatures and I’m over it.

Ibarra 2

I was able to rescue my husband from the mattress on the floor, so he won’t have to wake up in

the middle of the night startled by some busy insects crawling over him. Now we’re sleeping on

a twin mattress together, head to toe.

I try to keep everything tidy and clean, so I don’t feel guilty about this situation. I do everything I

can. Douglas has to sleep, he’s the one working every day.

I feel like I’m able to fight every little battle just because he’s with me. Thank you, God, for my

husband, my love, my hero, my whole life”

The Ecology

After translating this journal entry, I noticed how the ecology played a big part in my writing.

The situation that surrounded me was the main reason I decided to write in the first place. At the

beginning of the paper, I clarified that the entry was accompanied by a picture of what was in

front of me. In the picture, you can see the twin bed with some simple sheets and a stuffed

animal my husband got for me on a thrift store. Those were the things we owned at the time, two

or three pieces of clothing, two pairs of shoes, and some cash. My ecology was influencing so

much I had to write about it. The roaches were the reason for our discomfort. To see my reaction

and the war I started against the insects it is almost funny in my current situation. My description

of how cleaning and fixing the place up were my main weapons against these intruders. Every

detail of that room was speaking on that entry, “each element is a rhetor, an actor in a given

rhetorical ecology…” says Downs on page 466.

Ibarra 3

“Using the term ecology reminds us to look beyond people for even more elements influencing

the writing” (Down 466). I was not sure about what ecology meant before, but this entry made

me realize it played a big part in my understanding of my situation at that moment.

The Exigence

While I was reading this small journal entry, I was thinking of every detail of the rhetorical

situation I was in at the moment. On page 493 Grant-Davie says: “Exigence may have been

created by events that precede the discourse and act as a catalyst for it”. My catalyst was in this

case my surroundings, the things I couldn’t change about it, and the impotence that my losing

fight against the insects brought me. I described how tired and frustrated I was, how angry and

over the situation I felt. My motivation was to relieve my thoughts and leave a record of the

things I was going through. Writing has been that for me since I was a child. It has been my

escape and solace. Through the years my short or long entries have become a sort of archive that

I like to look back to feel grateful for my current situation. My past words humble me and show

me how blessed I am.

Grant-Davie talks on the same sentence I quoted before about the reason for writing in a specific

moment, “the timing of the discourse may also have been triggered by an occasion, such as an

invitation to speak”. In this case, I remember that my frustration came to its peak when I found

eggs and more cockroaches in a hole that our bed had. My only thought was if one of those

insects would try to crawl inside our ears, that was the most feared outcome in my mind. I was

anxious and stressed all the time. Like I said before, reading this in the present can even be

amusing, but at that moment that was something that would keep me up at night.

Ibarra 4

The Audience

Looking at this situation and the lines I wrote comes to my mind that my audience was first

myself in the future, maybe at the moment I didn’t think about myself reading this text today and

finding myself in a different situation. But when I read my words and the way I described my

surroundings I see how sincere and open I was being with my details. I was surrendering myself

to the text, I wanted to leave my frustration in that entry. I had no pride or sense of shame about

sharing that with myself. “In some instances, writers may be their own intended audiences” says

Grant-Davie on page 498, he says too that sometimes the writer “might draft with a sense of

audience in mind” (498). I showed this entry to my husband today, he smiled and remembered

with me, but I never intended for anyone else to see or read this piece of writing. I wrote it with

myself in mind.

At the end of the entry, I can see that my other rhetor was God, I ended the text appreciating his

blessings despite everything. Inside me even when frustrated I felt the need to be grateful. I

didn’t start the entry with the need of being grateful, my discourse changed towards the end,

maybe after realizing I was being the opposite, or that I could see things from a more positive

perspective. Seeing things in a positive light is not always easy, but I always like to try. I know

the end of my entry reflects my state of mind, I was going forward because I wasn’t alone. God

and my husband were my reason for everything I was doing.

The Constraints

Ibarra 5

In the text, constraints are defined as “all factors in the situation, aside from the rhetor and the

audience”, it says that these factors “may lead the audience to be either more or less sympathetic

to the discourse” (Grant-Davie 500). My surroundings were my constraints, my inability to work,

and the feeling of helplessness. At that moment I was waiting for my husband to get his first

paycheck so we could pay the $1500 that cost to file the paperwork so I could have a green card;

I was in the country just with a tourist visa that was going to expire in a month. After marrying a

US citizen, contrary to what people think sometimes, the process is actually expensive and long

to become a legal resident. I became a citizen this year, after 6 years of living here and more than

$4000 invested in the process.

At that moment my husband and I decided that I wasn’t going to work until I was able to do it

legally. So, at that moment I was feeling desperate about not being able to help.

The language and the culture shock were big constraints too, for many years after this entry I

struggled with learning English; for people looking at my situation from outside could seem that

I didn’t struggle much adapting to a new country, but this is not what I felt at all. I was born and

raised in Argentina, my whole family is there, I have no family in this country aside from my

political family. I went to college and had my first job there. I worked to pay for my studies. I

was capable of finding resources and fixing problems. Moving from my house to go to college at

an early age helped me to be strong and decisive. Suddenly I was in another country unable to

help or add to the solution, depending on someone else entirely for everything. While planning

this paper I thought about how to describe what it was like going out with my husband. In our

couple I’m the most extroverted and talkative, but I couldn’t communicate because of the

language barrier, so I would say things to him, and he used to translate and speak for me. It was

Ibarra 6

frustration after frustration, we both were so stressed all the time because there we were, an

extroverted expecting to send her message though an introverted. I remember those days and I

appreciate the patience of my husband and how he managed the situation without ever making

me feel bad about my limitations.

For a while I couldn’t communicate in the way I would do it in Spanish, I would think in Spanish

but be unable to communicate the same idea in English.

Today after years of learning and being wrong, I can say that I’m Evelyn in English like I am in

Spanish, I can be myself in both worlds.

Discussion and Conclusion

After analyzing this situation in detail and with the concepts I have learned, I can see how

different I would write today about a similar situation. I try to keep my openness and the details

of my surroundings, but much has changed. The whole situation, the constraints, and exigencies

of the situation made me write things that made me sympathize with myself today. Writing

helped, once again, to remind me of things I have forgotten long ago.

Today after 6 years of that day my situation is different. My husband and I work for the same

company. I was able to learn English enough to use it during my workday and my daily life. I'm

studying and writing this paper from a clean bedroom in a roach free house. I appreciate these

entries because after being grateful for my situation I know people are going through similar

things today, and my goal is to be there for them. My writings are a reminder of what I was and

proof of what I can become.
