Welcome to the Crescendo Analysis Labs, an online laboratory devoted to creative and philosophical experiments in Crescendo Analysis.  



CRESCENDO ANALYSIS
Crescendo Analysis defines an approach to both analyzing and creating various kinds of rhetorical communication, literature, photography, film, and fine art  in which either the creator or the critic moves from detailed, specific information into broader, more general information for the purpose of creating a comparison or extending and enlarging  an explicit or implicit argument.


For a complete definition of Crescendo Analysis with examples: Crescendo Analysis Defined.
