Question Description

Analytical Report: Remember to organize your report with an Introductory paragraph + Body paragraphs +Concluding paragraph. Your claims must have effective supporting details.

Read the essay “What is Luxury?” by Frances Moore Lappe. In a 5–6 paragraph report, analyze her claim and use of examples to illustrate the concept of “luxury”. What kinds of appeals does she use?

Write in the 3rd person and write a title for your report. About 650- 700 words in the MLA style to be written in multiple paragraphs. More than 5 paragraphs.

I am looking for a clearly written report not a summary. You must give examples of use of words and phrases that describe what "luxury" is to Lappe. How is this simplicity and inner sense of luxury different from the cliched understanding of luxury? Develop with details and examples from the essay and Lappe's reasoning as she unfolds a definition of "luxury," which you might not be familiar with.

makes the essay more relatable and much more persuasive. Though the text is not very long, it still
manages to pack a successfully appeal to various rhetorical strategies, including the rhetorical
triangle of ethos, logos and pathos.
To thoroughly understand Lappés’ position, one must delve into what she means by luxury.
For her concept to be accepted, she needs to present to the audience an alternative to the norm;
specifically, an alternative that they could logically considered to be better than the ...
