1) In his book, The Rhetoric of Motives, Kenneth Burke proposed the idea of identification. He claimed identification is the simplest form of persuasion: “You persuade a man only insofar as you can talk his language by speech, gesture, tonality, order, image, attitude, idea, identifying your ways with his” (Burke, 1950, p. 55).
2) Review a piece of media (film, television, novel, etc.) of your choice. Look for a character, or multiple characters, that employ Burke’s idea of identification.
3) In 500 to 750 words, write an essay about your findings. Remember to keep the paper focused on identification and how the character uses that to persuade.
