AUTHOR

Crider, Scott

SUMMARY

"In The Office of Assertion: the Art of Rhetoric Scott Crider has written a brief, elegant text on a topic all too often treated esoterically. He adjures readers, in a reference to Wendell Berry, to 'stand by' their words, proceeding to demonstrate the way in which clarity and conviction, logos and lexis, can be welded together in 'soul-leading.' The process makes of rhetoric a liberal art as well as a formidable instrument of persuasion. Particularly helpful is his chapter on revision, in which he makes clear that style is no mere decoration but a final result of both insight and labor. Though primarily intended for college students charged with creating that 'small universe' of the academic essay, The Office of Assertion becomes in the end a guide to truthful utterance on all levels, with skill in language leading to fuller participation in culture and a nobler concept of the human."Louise Cowan, Professor of English, University of Dallas, co-author of Invitation to the ClassicsCrider, Scott is the author of 'Office Of Assertion An Art Of Rhetoric For The Academic Essay', published 2005 under ISBN 9781932236453 and ISBN 1932236457.
