Roberts, Ch. 12 -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)"A problem is any question that you cannot answer easily and correctly about a body of material that you know." Sorry to quote the first line of the whole chapter, but it sorta threw me off until I realized that Roberts' "PROBLEM" is really like our "CLAIM" in the whole claim-data-warrant scheme. By inserting "CLAIM" in place of "PROBLEM" throughout the chapter, I didn't get hung up on the negative connotations of the word 'PROBLEM".
