This brief rhetoric with readings and illustrations highlights the interaction between writing, reading, and thinking. Writing is introduced as a dialogue, and each chapter explores a different aspect of that dialogue - invention, revision (dialogue with the self), persuasion (dialogue with the reader), writing from texts (dialogue with the text or subject). Visual examples, including four pages of fine art reproductions, may be used to stimulate discussion and reading.
