 Notes
Abstract: Drawing from Longinus’ On the Sublime as my Rosetta Stone and a contemporary rhetorical theorist, Kenneth Burke, as my insightful assistant, I offer three elements as being vital to achieving persuasive representative anecdotes. First, to be complex and supple, a representative anecdote ought to include layers of meaning, a proper noun, and possibly a historical reference. Second, to be representative of its matter, a representative anecdote must be both synecdochically specific and yet have scope whereby the audience understands its being representative. Third, to possess simplicity for ease of understanding, the representative anecdote must remain both implicit and yet succinct.
