Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
We all use language to persuade other people, but some can do it more effectively than others. In this book, law professor Ward Farnsworth has produced a masterclass in eloquence, with passages drawn from some of the greatest writers and speakers of the English language. Organizing hundreds of these examples according to the devices they illustrate, from simple repetition to anticipating objections, he shows how to apply the powerful principles of classical rhetoric, one of the most ancient academic disciplines.
