Analyze “Three Days in London: Churchill’s Funeral” as an example of historical commentary. You should select parts of that work to focus on in a close reading that seeks to understand not only the content of the article but elements such as diction, syntax, tone and context. Which parts of the text do you find most effective and why? What rhetorical strategies does Lukacs employ to make his arguments? What is the persuasive intent of the text? Do you notice any patterns? Are there common themes or objectives? As you take these questions into consideration, remember the importance of developing a strong proposition for your essay; one that can be supported by the evidence. In order to properly complete this assignment, you should carefully review the material in Lunsford on “Critical Thinking and Argument,” pp. 123-165.
