Shaping the Point with Poetry.
VonBergen, Linda
Journal of Basic Writing, v20 n1 p77-88 Spr 2001
Borrows a rhetorical device from Isocrates, imitation, then combines it with the descriptive structure of Liva Polanyi and the referential (rather than expressive) aim of discourse from James Kinneavy to improve student narratives and prepare them for academic discourse. Describes how students imitate the structure of a brief poem, and they use the referential aim of discourse for clarity. (SG)
