Kennedy defines letteraturizzazione as “the tendency of rhetoric
Kennedy defines letteraturizzazione as “the tendency of rhetoric to become less interested in primary oral discourse and more interested in secondary textual forms” (41). As McCorkle notes, Kennedy goes on to suggest that this is an imperative move for “conceptualizing rhetoric,” arguing that it changes rhetoric “from a lesser, unreflective practice of oratory to a self-aware discipline with its own set of codified rules” (41). This is a bold claim that is rooted in “pro-writing.” Either offer support for Kennedy’s claim or craft an argument refuting Kennedy’s claim.
While this reading response is rooted largely in your own opinion, being able to defend your opinion is, as always, the key. As such, being able to use McCorkle to defend your response would be a solid move. Thinking about past texts we’ve read–namely Herrick and Aristotle–would be wise as well. As always, any outside sources you utilize should be cited appropriately. I anticipate a full two pages with this response.
