Telling America's Story: Narrative Form and the Reagan Presidency.
Lewis, William F.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v73 n3 p280-302 Aug 1987
Discusses the dominance of the narrative form in President Reagan's rhetoric and how his use of narrative form--characterized by a story-based truth, an emphasis on morality, and a grounding in common sense--affects political judgment, differentiating the perspective of his supporters and his opponents. Considers the power and limitations of narrative form. (NKA)
