Gorgias's "Helen" Revisited.
Schiappa, Edward
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v81 n3 p310-24 Aug 1995
Argues that identifying Gorgias's "Helen" as an epideictic speech is misleading; the speech is not veiled defense of the "Art of Rhetoric"; Gorgias may have inaugurated the prose genre of encomia; and "Helen"'s most significant theoretical contribution is to offer a secular account of the workings of the logos that functions as an exemplar for later theorists.
