1 Butler February 15, 2010 Dear Mr. H: When being assigned the subject for this essay, I knew that I wanted to write it on the rhetoric rather than a current event or speech because I knew that the novel had evidence of all 3 uses of the rhetoric: ethos, pathos, and logos. I already knew which specific examples I wanted to use to prove my point that all three of these are used throughout the novel. I wanted the first body paragraph to be the rhetoric that Machiavelli used the second most, the middle to be what he used the least, and the final body paragraph to be what he used the most in the novel. I did this because I thought it would be an interesting way to set up the paper to keep the reader’s interest. I think that ending with the most important thing is always a good way to do it. After the peer review I realized my essay was a little choppy and unclear, so I went back and edited each paragraph to make my point more clear. I also had a lot of repetition, so I made sure that I eliminated any evidence of that. I also had some grammatical mistakes that I had to fix. I think that the strongest part of my essay is my introduction and use of examples and quotes. I think the weakest part is fitting all the information into the essay in a clear, easy to read fashion. Overall I am very satisfied with the outcome of my essay, and actually found this novel quite interesting. It is not my usual choice of reading, but I am thankful that I had the chance to read it. Sincerely, Emily Butler

He did this because he thought his most valuable gift to the prince would be his opinion on politics. He discusses the reality of politics rather than the ideal of how it really should be. He gives solutions to problems that many former rulers have
