This volume explores the fascinating aesthetic and social connection
between drama and rhetoric.



Inasmuch as drama seeks to keep an audience engaged, it takes on rhetorical
qualities; likewise, rhetorical endeavor may employ dramatic appeal. Centuries
ago, Aristotle's companion pieces The Rhetoric and The Poetic
generated crosscurrents of critical thought about rhetorical and dramatic
theory. Recently, such critic-theorists as Kenneth Burke, Ernest Bormann,
Elder Olson, Paul de Man, and others have stirred up these currents afresh.
The contributors to this volume take provocative new approaches to enduring
issues.
