Composition/rhetoric: a synthesis
Southern Illinois University Press, Apr 1, 1986 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 359 pages
In this eclectic selection of 27 essays, Winterowd presents a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of the theory and practice of composition.
Winterowd relates composition to the fields of literacy and rhetoric, moving easily between topics as diverse as brain theory and stylistics. The essays blend the speculative with the specific, the abstract with the actual, as Winterowd seeks a balance between theory and application.
The book is divided into two sections. Part I, “The Field of Composition/Rhetoric,” constitutes a state-of-the-art essay on composition. Part 2, “Essays on Composition/Rhetoric,” develops the themes introduced in the first part.
