Readings from Classical Rhetoric Book Description

This unique anthology of primary texts in classical rhetoric contains selection of twenty-four ancient writers from Homer through St. Augustine.
Here, for the first time in one volume, are all the extant writings focusing on rhetoric that were composed before the fall of Rome.

This unique anthology of primary texts in classical rhetoric contains the work of 24 ancient writers from Homer through St. Augustine, including Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Quintilian, Tacitus, and Longinus.

Along with many widely recognized translations, special features include the first English translations of works by Theon and Nicolaus, as well as new translations of two works by important sophists, Gorgias' encomium on Helen and Alcidamas' essay on composition.
