An analysis of Frederick Douglass's rhetorical development from abolitionist to statesman. The study fills a gap in the critical analysis of Douglass's speaking career, examining how he struggled to attain literacy and then develop a range of rhetorical techniques and devices to reach his audience on an emotional and intellectual level. The volume is both a tribute and an analysis of how the orator perfected the delivery of his appeals to persuade his audiences. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
