Edited by Jim A. Kuypers.

Covering a broader range of rhetorical perspectives, The Art of Rhetorical Criticism presents a thorough, accessible introduction to rhetorical criticism. Throughout the text, sample essays written by experts in the field provide students with models for writing their own criticism.
