9781592445790: The Motives of Eloquence: Literary Rhetoric in the Renaissance
About the Author:

Richard A. Lanham was educated at the Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., and at Yale University, from which he holds the A.B., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. He taught at Dartmouth, and from 1965 to 1994 in the English Department at UCLA, where he is now Professor Emeritus. His latest book, The Electronic Word: Democracy, Technology, and the Arts, was published, in both printed and electronic form, by the University of Chicago Press in 1993. Prof. Lanham is the President of Rhetorica, Inc., a Los Angeles consulting company.

Review:

We have in The Motives of Eloquence a significant contribution to theory, criticism, and history that graces us with the eloquence of its own motives....For comparatists of all interests and persuasions. --William J. Kennedy, 'Comparative Literature'

This is a stunning book....The central thesis of The Motives of Eloquence is subtle, complicated, imaginative, and bold. --Anne Barton, 'Shakespeare Quarterly

The book offers bold and often controversial insights. Its readers will find themselves bringing significantly altered premises to much of their subsequent reading in the field. --Newsletter of the National Endowment for the Humanities
