In defence of rhetoric by Brian Vickers ( Book )
11 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and Polish and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A spirited effort to restore the importance of rhetoric, this book examines its early development in the classical era, its triumph during the Renaissance, and its subsequent decline. While acknowledging rhetoric's general loss of prestige, the author asserts its value in modern times as an indispensable vehicle for style and thought in the work of Joyce, Orwell, Jarrell, and others, and concludes by surveying rhetoric's fragmentation and misapplication in the current critical theories of such thinkers as Jakobson and de Man."--From publisher description
