Rhetoric: The Wit of Persuasion

£19.49

Product description

This hard cover book is in good condition. There are no internal markings or annotations. The pages have yellowed with age but this does not affect the text itself. The page edges and ends are free from blemishes. Externally, the book's dust jacket has been bumped and creased along a number of its edges (see photo). Underneath, the book's burgundy hard cover is in very good condition with the corners remaining square and the cover protected from sun-bleaching. There is a patch of damage at the top of the book's spine where it has been heavily bumped (see photo). All in all, a good, clean copy of this book.

'To some people "rhetoric" suggests empty verbiage; to some, a clever way of telling lies; and to some, a baffling struggle with Graeco-Roman names for complecated verbal devices. This book sets out to dispel these unfavourable notions, and to replace them with a view of rhetoric as a form of wit, a psychological instrument, an aesthetic pleasure, a framework for argument, and above all as a technique informing not only the complex patterns of literary art but also the conduct of everyday transactions.'
