Connors, Robert J., Ede, Lisa S., Lunsford, Andrea A.

SUMMARY

Eighteen essays by leading scholars in English, speech communication, educa­tion, and philosophy explore the vitality of the classical rhetorical tradition and its influence on both contemporary dis­course studies and the teaching of writing. Some of the essays investigate the­oretical and historical issues. Others show the bearing of classical rhetoric on contemporary problems in composition, thus blending theory and practice. Com­mon to the varied approaches and view­points expressed in this volume is one central theme: the 20th-century revival of rhetoric entails a recovery of the clas­sical tradition, with its marriage of a rich and fully articulated theory with an equally efficacious practice. A preface demonstrates the contribution of Ed­ward P. J.Corbett to the 20th-century re­vival, and a last chapter includes a bibli­ography of his works.Connors, Robert J. is the author of 'Essays on Classical Rhetoric and Modern Discourse' with ISBN 9780809311347 and ISBN 0809311348.
