The purpose is simply put; the reason why this paper is being written and what is trying to be achieved by writing it. Some examples of purpose include entertaining, informing, to persuade and evaluating.

Personally, I have always found purpose to be a bit straightforward forward however as the semester progressed, I began to dig deeper and find out how my purpose connects to the other rhetorical elements and the way it is presented.
