Divisionem

In the act of persuasion, choices come to the front.   We persuade toward a choice and away from another.  A common device that concludes stasis, we end the narratio by illustrating a ‘some say’ while ‘others say’ – clearly presenting the choice.  This component is necessary in political or deliberative speech, of interest in forensic or judicial speeches, and may be used in epidiectic or celebratory speeches.

We follow this with the proposition – the position we will champion.
