Recensie(s)

Dominik and Hall have produced a solid, well-structured and accessible piece of work, which not only provides an excellent starting point to newcomers, but also contains a number of original contributions that will be of interest to more advanced scholars. (Scholia Reviews, June 2010) This Blackwell Companion successfully communicates the efflorescence of Roman rhetorical practices and the centrality of rhetoric in Roman thought. (Classical World, June 2009) The historical and generic range of these 32 scholarly essays strikingly reflects how rhetoric pervaded Roman literature... .Students at all levels will benefit from reading these essays. (Classical Review. 2008) Students at all levels will benefit from reading these essays, both for their intrinsic scholarship and for the guidance they give, through copious bibliographical reference, towards further research...an important contribution to Blackwell's catalogue of classical titles. (The Classical Review, Vol 58 No. 1 2008) Dominik and Hall's [book] will be welcomed by those seeking capable introductions to the areas it treats. Through an array of open-minded contributions [it] usefully introduces the main scholarly issues in Roman rhetoric and oratory, outlining how far the field has come and the opportunities and complications that lie ahead. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review) A significant major contribution that adds further prestige to a very major series. (Reference Reviews) A short review cannot begin to do justice to the immense range of material covered here ... This excellent Companion will tell most readers all they need to know about Roman rhetoric. (Journal of Classics Teaching) This welcome addition ... fills a void long empty in classical scholarship ... .Every library, if not every Classics department, should own a copy. (New England Classical Journal)
