The goal of Sir Francis Bacon was to persuade others to agree with and understand his perspectives when writing essays. After learning the various rhetorical strategies and reading the two essays by Sir Francis Bacon, respond to the following prompt:
Note one point of agreement and one point of disagreement from each of Bacon’s essays. Then, explain the rhetorical strategies Bacon uses to convince you to agree with his points, and explain the rhetorical strategies Bacon fails to use effectively on the points where you disagree. Students should have four total points that explain why they agree and disagree. Make sure to include cited evidence to support claims.
