Reflections on an Argument That Won't Go Away: Or, a Turn of the Ideological Screw.
Crowley, Sharon
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v78 n4 p450-65 Nov 1992
Reviews criticism of Philip Wander's 1983 article, "The Ideological Turn in Modern Criticism." Shows how critics of Wander's "ideological criticism" subscribed to an essentialist notion of rhetoric, adopted a theory of innocent reading, and displayed unexamined prejudices about canonical texts. Urges academic rhetoricians to acknowledge that all rhetorical criticism is saturated with ideological presuppositions. (SR)
