RHETORIC--THEORIES FOR APPLICATION, PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE 1965 CONVENTION OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH.
GORRELL, ROBERT M., ED.
THESE 14 PAPERS EMPHASIZE THE VARIETY OF CURRENT THOUGHT ABOUT RHETORIC AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH MODERN RHETORIC IS EXPLOITING NEW INFORMATION AND RESEARCH. THE EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION DEFINES THE RECENTLY REVIVED ART OF RHETORIC IN TERMS OF ITS PURPOSES AND TYPES, AND THE PAPERS THEMSELVES DEMONSTRATE THAT MUCH OF WHAT IS NOW HERALDED AS NEW IN THE FIELD IS ACTUALLY OLD AND THAT MUCH CAN BE LEARNED FROM FORMULATIONS OF THE RHETORIC OF THE PAST. THESE PAPERS EXAMINE--(1) THE CONTEMPORARY PERTINENCE OF RHETORIC AND SEMANTICS TO COMPOSITION, (2) THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COMPARABLE ORAL AND WRITTEN MESSAGES AND HOW BOTH SHARE THE RHETORICAL "STANCE," (3) THE DANGERS OF USING PRESCRIPTIVE CLASSIFICATIONS IN PARAGRAPH COMPOSITION AND STYLE ANALYSIS, (4) RHETORICAL ANALYSIS APPLIED TO LITERARY CRITICISM AND TO THE EXPLICATION OF POEMS AND POETIC STRUCTURE, (5) THE APPLICATION OF SCIENTIFIC FIELD THEORY TO RHETORIC, TO LANGUAGE, AND TO LITERATURE, (6) THE RELATIONSHIP OF RHETORIC TO OTHER DISCIPLINES, AND (7) NEW APPROACHES TO THE TEACHING OF RHETORIC AND TO EFFECTIVE CURRICULUM PLANNING.
