Reconsiderations: Voice in Writing Again--Embracing Contraries
Elbow, Peter
College English, v70 n2 p168-188 Nov 2007
"Voice" is no longer a hot term in composition journals. Yet it continues to deserve scholarly attention, in part because it is still often referred to in classrooms and seems applicable to new forms of electronic communication. At the same time, we should avoid taking an either/or stand on the usefulness of "voice" as a term. This is a case where we should embrace contraries, by advocating concepts of "voice" on certain occasions and resisting the term on others. (Contains 8 notes.)
