If you think of a summary as primarily a brief representation of what a text says, then you might think of the rhetorical précis as a brief representation of what a text both says and does. Although less common than a summary, a rhetorical précis is a particularly useful way to sum up your understanding of how a text works rhetorically ( Reading Rhetorically  , 62). The Structure of a Rhetorical Précis   Sentence One :  Name of author, genre, and title of work, date in parentheses; a rhetorically active verb; and a THAT clause containing the major assertion or thesis in the text. Sentence Two :  An explanation of how the author develops and supports the thesis. Sentences 2A & 2B : Provide actual quotes from the text that provide examples of what the author does to support the thesis. Sentence Three : A statement of the author’s apparent purpose, followed by an “in order to” phrase.   Sentence Four  : A description of the TONE and the intended audience .

Baker supports this assertion by showing examples of how inappropriate attitudes can make writing unclear, pompous, or boring. He conclude[s] that a good writer will be respectful toward his audience, considerate toward his readers, and somehow amiable toward human failings (58). Baker also points out “ ----------------------------------------------- “ to further develop the importance of quality prose (citation). His purpose is to make his readers aware of the dangers of negative attitudes in order to help them become better writers. He establishes an informal yet informative to for college students who are interested in learning to write with conviction (55). B.   Toni Morrison, in her essay Disturbing Nurses and the Kindness of Sharks, implies that racism in the United States has affected the craft and process of American novelists. Morrison supports her implication by describing how Ernest Hemingway writes about black characters in his novels and short stories. For example, she points out how Hemingway said “ ------------------------------------------------- “ (citation). She goes on to point out how he “ ---------------------------------------------------- “ in ord er to _____________ (citation). Her purpose is to make her readers aware of the cruel reality of racism underlying some of the greatest works of American literature in order to help them examine the far-reaching effects racism has not only on those discriminated against but also on those who discriminate. She speaks in a formal and highly analytical tone for her audience of racially mixed (but probably mainly white), theoretically sophisticated readers and critical interpreters of American literature.
