A Perspective on Eagleton's Revival of Rhetoric.
Clifford, John; Schilb, John
Rhetoric Review, v6 n1 p22-30 Fall 1987
Discusses T. Eagleton's view of rhetoric as a study of the political power of discursive practices, comparing it to views of other theorists. Argues that composition faculty should welcome Eagleton's socialist-inflected revival of rhetoric because he embeds it in a deconstruction of the polarities that marginalize writing teachers and empower the literature specialist.
