Widely used in advanced composition and writing courses, Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student discusses the three vital components of classical rhetoric--argument, arrangement, and style--bringing these elements to life and demonstrating their effective use in yesterday's and today's writing. Presenting its subject in five parts, the text provides grounding in the elements and applications of classical rhetoric; the strategies and tactics of argumentation; the effective presentation and organization of discourses; the development of power, grace, and felicity in expression; and the history of rhetorical principles. Numerous examples of classic and contemporary rhetoric, from paragraphs to complete essays, appear throughout the book, many followed by detailed analyses.
The fourth edition of Classical Rhetoric for the Modern Student features a new section on the Progymnasmata (classical composition exercises), a new analysis of a color advertisement in the Introduction, an updated survey of the history of rhetoric, and an updated section on "External Aids to Invention."


A definitive, highly usable, rigorous text--I have used it with great success for many years. The new material in the 4th edition is marvelous. Exactly the kind of work needed to prepare teachers. --Mitzi Brunsdale, Mayville State University An indispensable and lucid guide to rhetoric that will make students proficient writers and acute interpreters of texts ranging from contemporary advertisements to Homer. --Corinne E. Blackmen, Southern Connecticut State University Interesting and well written. I particularly like the selected readings by Homer, Socrates, Madison, Thoreau, and the others. A very comprehensive study. --Wendy Stackable, Covenant Christian Academy Praise for the previous edition (1st 3 quotes): Remains the single best, most comprehensive, most readable, most useful, most usable text for both introductory and advanced classes in rhetoric/composition. --Vivian Thomlinson, Cameron University A classic in the field of composition studies, a work that has shaped the disciplone. Sorts out the often confusing writings of classical rhetoric and shows how the ancient art can help contemporary students negotiate the realm of persuasive discourse. --Gary Layne Hatch, Brigham Young University The definitive rhetorical handbook for contemporary students. --William Sewell, Southwest Missouri State University My students appreciate the clear and complete explanations of rhetorical principles in this text. --Jody D. Brown, Ferrum College An excellent text for Advanced Composition and Rhetoric because it allows you to pace the course according to the level of your classes. --Mark Craver, George Mason University
