The Present State of Scholarship in Historical and Contemporary Rhetoric.
Horner, Winifred Bryan, Ed.
Designed for the student of historical rhetoric who does not have a reading knowledge of Greek and Latin, this book is divided into 6 sections, each written by a specialist in the rhetoric of the different historical periods. Each section (1) provides an overview of the primary works, their authors, and the rhetorical issues of the period; (2) suggests needs for editions and translations, as well as directions for future scholarship; and (3) concludes with a bibliography. The contributors to this volume are Richard Leo Enos (the classical period); James J. Murphy (the Middle Ages); Don Paul Abbot (the Renaissance); Winifred Bryan Horner (the eighteenth century); Donald C. Stewart (the nineteenth century); and James L. Kinneavy (contemporary rhetoric).
