An important collection for scholars and students, this volume surveys major approaches to rhetorical criticism through significant essays that explain and illustrate them. From H. A. Wichelns's groundbreaking The Literary Criticism of Oratory to recent representatives of feminist criticism, close textual analysis, and postmodernism, these essays reflect the historical development, diversity, and practice of rhetorical criticism.
The second edition has been updated to reflect recent scholarship, current directions, and classroom needs. Collectively, the forty essays in this book are among the most important and widely cited in the literature of rhetorical criticism.
