Finally! A must have for students and teachers of Rhet/Comp 1 Aug. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As with any encyclopedia, some entries are better than others. For example, the Bacon entry is very limited in content (it doesn't even mention his Doctrine of the Idols) when compared to other entries (such as the very precise summary of Derrida and his theories). Suggested primary and secondary text citations are thorough. The index compliation is excellent and a great help for finding terms that are repeated throughout the history of rhetoric and developed or altered by various rhetors.

Thank you Theresa Enos!!! Grad students studying for comps, like me, will praise your name forever. This book is first on my list to purchase when I graduate and "find a real job."
