Rubingh 1 Nathan Rubingh Shannon DaMoude ENGL 1023 7 March 2019 Written Assessment 8 Image 1 1. A multimodal argument is one that uses images and words to enhance an argument. This image includes a description, though the description is not an argument per se. The image itself projects the argument, so I would say that it is a multimodal argument. 2. The exigency is the supposed injustice of the West Bank wall, which is what the author saw and decided to act upon. 3. The subject is the West Bank Barrier, as it is the main focus of the image, taking up around a third of the picture. The main argument is that the people of the West Bank don’t want the wall there. An implied argument or claim is that if the wall remains, it will hurt children. 4. There are two main emotions evoked by this image. The first is pity. The author wants the audience to feel sorry for those in the West Bank, and uses children to do so. The second emotion is one of anger at injustice.
