This book takes rhetorical devices from classical times and brings them to life, with examples that are so good you want to read them out loud. It taught me a great deal about why Lincoln sounds like Lincoln, why Dickens sounds like Dickens, and more other things about rhetoric than I can keep straight. Farnsworth is an ideal guide, tasteful and very helpful, with an incredible range of knowledge at his fingertips. A beautiful book.

Anyone who loves language will love this book. Beautifully written, printed, and illustrated (not with pictures, but with examples).
