Analysis of the introduction

■ The introduction presents the topic Recycled Paper by stating very general information that most readers are already aware of.

■ The topic is narrowed down to a particular problem with recycled paper: its lack of structural strength.

■ This is then further narrowed down to a thesis statement, saying that hemp is the solution to the problem.

■ Note that the writer suggests that hemp may perhaps have something more to offer the paper industry than just its strength

■ Note how the writer goes beyond the basic information in order to capture the reader's attention by planting a hook. Here the hook was Marijuana. A hook causes the reader to pause and pay attention, here to find out what marijuana has to do with recycled paper. The writer goes on to explain that it is a specific product of the hemp plant, fibre, that is a solution to the problem of weak and brittle recycled paper.
