Handbook of Literary Rhetoric: A Foundation for Literary Study
Heinrich Lausberg, David E. Orton, R. Dean Anderson
BRILL, 1998 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 921 pages
Lausberg's "Handbook of Literary Rhetoric," here made available for the first time in English, received high critical acclaim on its first publication in 1963. It is a monumental work of extraordinary erudition, organisation and comprehensiveness, and enjoys unrivalled authority in its formal description of rhetorical techniques. The present edition is a translation of the second edition of 1973, which was reprinted in 1990. The "Handbook" has for many years been a standard reference work for all engaged in the study of literature and rhetoric. This translation will ensure its accessibility to a new generation of students of rhetoric.
