A Classical Rhetoric for "Powerful" Argumentation.
Wiethoff, William E.
Journal of the American Forensic Association, v17 n1 p1-10 Sum 1980
Analyzes a 1976 House of Representatives' debate in light of classical writings on the problem of defining and using "power" for rhetorical ends. Outlines the classical solution of powerful diction, brevity, and figures of speech for intensifying the impact of already compelling argument and applies these to the contemporary analysis. (JMF)
