Description

This volume in the Routledge Medieval Casebooks series explores medieval rhetorical practices. Ten original essays examine the ways in which contemporary readers and scholars might employ rhetorical theory to illuminate underlying meanings in medieval texts. The contributors also explore how rhetoric was used as a means of textual innovation in the work of medieval authors such as Chaucer and his contemporaries.

Reviews

"…a good source for interpretation on late medieval rhetoric…useful for those interested in the subtleties of interpretation." -- R. Natasha Amendola, Journal of the Australian Early Medieval Association, Vol. 3, 1007
