The Martial "Virtue" of Rhetoric in Machiavelli's "Art of War."
Wiethoff, William E.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v64 n3 p304-12 Oct 1978
Argues that Machiavelli's inherent interest in pragmatic, "virtuous" applications of humanistic arts mandated both rhetorical form and matter in his composition of the "Art of War." Proposes that the work reveals Machiavelli's debt to the classically humane ideal of the warrior-orator. (JMF)
