Product description

Review

"In The Office of Assertion: the Art of Rhetoric Scott Crider has written a brief, elegant text on a topic all too often treated esoterically. He adjures readers, in a reference to Wendell Berry, to 'stand by' their words, proceeding to demonstrate the way in which clarity and conviction, logos and lexis, can be welded together in 'soul-leading.' The process makes of rhetoric a liberal art as well as a formidable instrument of persuasion. Particularly helpful is his chapter on revision, in which he makes clear that style is no mere decoration but a final result of both insight and labor.Though primarily intended for college students charged with creating that 'small universe' of the academic essay, The Office of Assertion becomes in the end a guide to truthful utterance on all levels, with skill in language leading to fuller participation in culture and a nobler concept of the human."--Louise Cowan, Professor of English, University of Dallas, co-author of Invitation to the Classics
