  • "Rhetoric, Rhetoricians and Poets contains essays by Marijke Spies about works written not only in Dutch, but also in French and in New Latin, with topics ranging from the effects of poetic principles on literary practice to the use of poetry as a means for improving society and developing the individual. The unifying thread in these studies is the pivotal importance of rhetoric in all forms of literary expression."--Jacket.
