Prologues to What Is Possible: Introductions as Metadiscourse.
Arrington, Phillip; Rose, Shirley K
College Composition and Communication, v38 n3 p306-18 Oct 1987
Discusses problems of writing introductions in light of the theories of H. P. Grice, C. Altieri, K. Burke, and Aristotle, illustrated with scientific writing, rhetorical criticism, and student letters and essays. Approaches the introduction as text both about subject matter and about the intended reader, situation invoked, and writer's own personae. (JG)
