Argumentation analysis
Thread poster: siri_us

Hi everyone!

I am Russian student and this year I graduate from the university. Currently I am preparing my thesis where I am going to analyse argumentation in English.

For my analysis, I would like to use some written texts in English. The texts should contain argumentative dialogues.

Could anybody suggest me such texts (something from modern English literature, for example)? I am thinking about the most appropriate choice, but I have just very few ideas now... I like "The Picture of Dorian Gray" very much for its brilliant dialogues, but I would like to include something else into my analysis.

Thank you!

Hi Siri,

the play by Edward Albee, if you want some fierce argument.

This was the first text that sprang to mind.

It is a brilliant idea to analyse plays, not novels, because they consist of dialogues! This is just what I need.
