A great book for writers at all levels!! From the back cover: "Patterns for a Purpose is unique among rhetorical readers because it presents the rhetorical patterns as means, not ends - as strategies writers employ to achieve their purpose for writing - and it acknowledges that real writers often combine rhetorical patterns to attain their goals."

Fabulous resource for writers! Back cover states: "With a diverse collection of compelling selections, a strong focus on how writers combine patterns, and detailed treatment of critical reading and the writing process, 'Patterns for a Purpose' is a rhetorical reader with a difference: a thoroughly realistic approach that emphasizes the patterns as strategies that help writers achieve thier purposes for writing - as means rather than ends."
