The Rhetorical Precis Form
Jane E Hindman, SDSU
In order to describe quickly and effectively the argument and context an author presents in a text,
use a format called the rhetorical précis. This form is a highly structured four sentence paragraph
that records the essential rhetorical elements in any spoken or written discourse. The précis
includes the name of the speaker/writer(s), the context or situation in which the text is delivered, the
major assertion, the mode of development or support of the main idea, the stated and/or apparent
purpose of the text, and the relationship between the speaker/writer(s) and the audience. The
following is a breakdown of the information you should include in each one of the four sentences.
Name of author, [optional: a phrase describing the author], the type and title of work, the
date of work (inserted in parentheses), and rhetorically accurate verb (such as assert,
argue, suggest, imply, claim, etc.) that describes what the author is doing in the
text, and a THAT clause in which you state the major assertion (thesis statement/claim)
of the authors text.
An explanation of how the author develops and/or supports the thesis, (for instance,
comparing and contrasting, narrating, illustrating, defining, using humor or sarcasm,
relating person experience, etc.). Your explanation is usually presented in the same
chronological order that the items of support are presented in the work.
A statement of the authors apparent purpose, followed by an IN ORDER TO phrase
in which you explain what the author wants the audience to do or feel as a result of reading
A description of the intended audience and the relationship the author establishes with the
Heres an example of a précis of a chapter from Playing in the Dark.
Toni Morrison, in her essay Disturbing Nurses and the Kindness of Sharks, implies
THAT racism in the United States has affected the craft and process of American novelists.
Morrison supports her implication by describing how Ernest Hemingway writes about black
characters in his novels and short stories. Her purpose is to make her readers aware of the
cruel reality of racism underlying some of the greatest works of American literature IN
ORDER TO help them examine the far-reaching effects racism has not only on those
discriminated against but also on those who discriminate. She establishes a formal and
highly analytical tone with her audience of racially-mixed (but probably mainly white),
theoretically-sophisticated readers and critical interpreters of American literature.
