The Rhetoric of Martin Luther King, Jr.: Letter from Birmingham Jail
Mott, Wesley T.
Phylon, 36, 4, 411-421, Dec 75
Argues that the success of 'The Letter' can be attributed to the confluence of three distinct rhetorical traits: King's heritage of the highly emotional Negro preaching tradition, his shrewd sense of political timing and polemical skill, and his conscious literary ability, and notes that 'The Letter' is one of the most frequently collected items in college English anthologies.
