The Rhetoric of Argumentation.
Brandt, William J.
This book has been written for those who would improve their reading of prose argumentation through practice in analyzing essays, speeches, and learned articles. Part I, "Structural Rhetoric," sets forth the structural relationship of the parts of an argument. Part II, "Textural Rhetoric," describes alterations in the interior organization of rhetoric--the ways of manipulating language through figures of speech and various logical devices to give an individual point of view. Part III, "Good and Bad Rhetoric," covers some of the common errors in defective argumentation and analyzes in detail a defective essay. "Reportorial Writing," Part IV, discusses the differences between argumentation and the psuedo-argumentative reporting found in many journals and magazines; samples of reportorial writing are analyzed in detail. A glossary of terms used in argumentative rhetoric is appended. (JM)
