Michael F. BishopIn his splendid new book, The Eloquent President: A Portrait of Lincoln Through His Words, Ronald C. White Jr. shines an admiring light upon Lincoln's presidential rhetoric *#8230; In his great speeches, Lincoln soars above the squalor of his origins, and we soar along with him. That someone should rise from humble origins to the height of power is not unique, but Lincoln's elevation was accompanied by an almost priestly refinement of spirit, perhaps most evident in his unforgettable writings. The Eloquent President is an insightful, highly readable exploration of literary genius.
