A Symposium in Rhetoric.
Tanner, William E., Ed.; And Others
The six articles in this collection explore the following topics relating to rhetoric: the distinction between the truth value and the exchange value of a message and between the signifier and the signified in a message; the rhetoric of silence in modern fiction; the way in which readers are influenced not only by what writers say but by how they sound, as determined by their written voice; the rhetorical use of the void, as exemplified in the "Liebestod," or love-death motif; the rhetoric of slogans, catchphrases, and graffiti; and the way in which literary criticism and reading theory shed light on each other. Authors are Richard M. Coe, Joanne Cockelreas, Richard L. Larson, Dean Bishop, Frank J. D'Angelo, and W. Ross Winterowd. (GW)
