The value of classical rhetoric for both English composition and speech courses has become increasingly clear in recent years. This volume is based on the premise that the system of Aristotle, Cicero, and Quintilian, which taught the student how to find something to say, how to select andorganize material, and how to phrase it in the best possible manner, is still useful and effective--more detailed in coverage and more positive in approach than any of the courses of study that replaced it. Now in its Third Edition, this highly successful textbook continues to present a coherentand realistic approach to the teaching of writing by adapting the principles of classical rhetoric and by using precepts, imitation, and constant practice as its core. The work stresses argumentative discourse, but most of its principles apply equally well to exposition, description, and narration. The new third edition of this classic text has been completely brought up to date, using inclusive language throughout and giving greater representation to women writers; offering shorter, timelier selections; and providing a useful phonetic guide to tropes and figures derived from Greek and Latinwords. Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student will be an invaluable resource for courses in composition, speech, rhetoric, and linguistics.

Classical rhetorical techniques can enhance the persuasiveness of Supreme Court opinions by making their language clear, lively, and memorable. This book focuses on three techniques—“invention” (creation of arguments), “arrangement” (organization), and “style” (word choice)—in the work of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Robert Jackson, Hugo Black, William Brennan, and Antonin Scalia, respectively. The justices featured here contributed to the Court’s rhetorical legacy in different ways, but all five rejected the magisterial opinion style of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in favor of a more personal and conversational format. As a result, their opinions have endured, and even modern readers who cannot recall the justices’ names understand and embrace the ideas expressed in their legal writings and apply those ideas to current debates. Practicing lawyers, professors, and students can use this book to study legal writing techniques and make their own writing more persuasive.

Eighteen essays by leading scholars in English, speech communication, educa­tion, and philosophy explore the vitality of the classical rhetorical tradition and its influence on both contemporary dis­course studies and the teaching of writing. Some of the essays investigate the­oretical and historical issues. Others show the bearing of classical rhetoric on contemporary problems in composition, thus blending theory and practice. Com­mon to the varied approaches and view­points expressed in this volume is one central theme: the 20th-century revival of rhetoric entails a recovery of the clas­sical tradition, with its marriage of a rich and fully articulated theory with an equally efficacious practice. A preface demonstrates the contribution of Ed­ward P. J. Corbett to the 20th-century re­vival, and a last chapter includes a bibli­ography of his works.

Lawyers, law students and their teachers all too frequently overlook the most comprehensive, adaptable and practical analysis of legal discourse ever devised: the classical art of rhetoric. Classical analysis of legal reasoning, methods and strategy is the foundation and source for most modern theories on the topic. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetoric and culminating with Cicero's De Oratore and Quintilian's Institutio Oratoria, Greek and Roman rhetoricians created a clear, experience-based theoretical framework for analyzing legal discourse. This book is the first to systematically examine the connections between classical rhetoric and modern legal discourse. It traces the history of legal rhetoric from the classical period to the present day and shows how modern theorists have unknowingly benefited from the classical works. It also applies classical rhetorical principles to modern appellate briefs and judicial opinions to demonstrate how a greater familiarity with the classical sources can deepen our understanding of legal reasoning.

"This book will give all lawyers the guidance they need to become effective advocates. Whether you have just passed the bar or have been practing for 30 years, this book will help refine your persuasive skills."---from the Foreword by Carolyn B. Lamm, President of the American Bar Association Argument is the fundamental tool of the lawyer's craft, and this practical book describes the twelve material factors that influence the persuasive effect of any argument. These twelve secrets, based on ideas from some of the world's great thinkers and advocates, will show you how to make the most persuasive argument possible and maximize your success before a judge or jury, in mediation or arbitration, and anywhere else. These secrets of persuasion come from Aristotle's Rhetoric; others were revealed in the classical writings of Quintilian, Cicero, and Demosthenes. Some come from the work of contemporary scholars in communications and social psychology, some derive from the world's most renowned lawyers, and others are distilled from the authors' own collective experience of more than 100 years as trial lawyers and teachers of trial advocacy. These secrets, both classical and new, can be your key to successful argument.

Developed from the very popular fourth chapter of the authors' Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student, 4th ed., Style and Statement is a concise introduction to the components of effective style as they were first defined by classical rhetoricians and as they apply to writing today. An essential reference for students and all writers, it incorporates numerous lively exercises that emphasize the contemporary applications of classic styles. The book opens with an extended discussion of diction and continues with an analysis of sentence composition and Professor Corbett's famous numerical style studies, which unite the principles of diction and sentence organization. Its catalogue of figures of speech is exceptionally comprehensive and includes definitions of the classic tropes. A practical application of imitation as a means of developing style introduces the final section of the text, which consists of the analysis of selected short readings ranging from an eighteenth-century work by Hugh Blair to John F. Kennedy's inaugural address.

This anthology focuses on the writing process itself and on fundamentals of compositional theory. Essays explore the psychology of composition, research on writing anxiety, the relationship of literary theory to composition, and reading theory as it relates to the composing process. The historical development of research methodologies in the field is examined, with particular emphasis on evaluation methods and construction of effective writing sequences and assignments. With recent educational trends toward basic writing, even teachers of the most advanced composition classes will welcome the contributions on sentence structure, spelling, punctuation, paragraphs, and volcabulary development. The essays that place composition within larger intellectual traditions will be particularly valuable to scholars currently extending their research into other disciplines. Two appendixes on text books and evaluation are designed to help composition educators and scholars select useful, innovative texts and handbooks.
