Form and Genre: Shaping Rhetorical Action.
Campbell, Karlyn Kohrs, Ed.; Jamieson, Kathleen Hall, Ed.
The introductory essay of this book states that the value of formal and generic analysis must be tested heuristically, in application. With that value as the keynote to the essay collection, the theoretical perspectives of form and genre in rhetorical criticism are discussed, and five critical essays give evidence of the constraints and creative options that a focus on form and genre can present. The final essay comments on the five critical essays in the context of the theoretical perspectives that were initially discussed. (RL)
