This wide-ranging volume gives proper attention to the views on rhetoric and style set forth by British literary figure Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859), whose contributions to the history of rhetoric are often overlooked. Lois Peters Agnew presents an overview of this theorist's life and provides cultural context for his time and place, with particular emphasis on the significance of his rhetoric as both an alternative strain of rhetorical history and a previously unrealized example of rhetoric's transformation in nineteenth-century Britain. Agnew presents an extensive discuss.
