Sappho and Socrates: The Nature of Rhetoric
Parish, Rachel
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, v17 n1 Fall 2012
This short graphic novel details two very different rhetoricians co-existing simultaneously in Ancient Greece, Sappho and Socrates, and their definitions and performances of rhetoric. While both share certain styles and techniques, a noticeable difference in the ways they create rhetorical prose and oration can be clearly seen, showing that Sappho was indeed a rhetor of multiple layers and an equal to Socrates, although they employ varying methods of rhetoric.
