9780030402760: Writing with a Thesis: A Rhetoric and Reader

Now an established classic in its field, the Seventh Edition of Writing with a Thesis is distinguished by its treatment of the importance of a thesis in creating a quality piece of writing. Ideal for departments in search of a rhetorically-organized reader, Writing with a Thesis provides short, lively and accessible essays and a direct approach to concepts and ideas that is both extensive and understandable to students. This rhetoric/reader is unique in its emphasis on the 'persuasive principles.'

Product Description:

This text applies the concept of the persuasive principle - the development and support of a thesis - as the major unifying theme of the book. Each chapter demonstrates how the persuasive principle underlies almost all good writing and applies this principle to rhetorical patterns.

About the Author:

Sarah Skwire attended Wesleyan University, where she received a BA (with honors) in English and was a member of the coed literary fraternity Alpha Delta Phi. She later received both her MA and PhD in English Literature from the University of Chicago. In addition to coauthoring WRITING WITH A THESIS (with her father, David Skwire), she has published a variety of creative work as well as articles on subjects such as chronically ill seventeenth-century women poets, medicine in "All's Well That Ends Well," the "German Princess" scandal of the seventeenth century, and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Before coming to Liberty Fund, Sarah taught at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and at The Ohio State University. Her current research is on the subject of money and early modern poetry.
