Lectures Concerning Oratory

by John Lawson, E. Neal Claussen (Editor), Karl L. Wallace (Editor), David Potter (Foreword by)
 

A transitional work in the history of rhetoric, long out of print and difficult to obtain partly because of the author’s death shortly after first publication of his venturesome work, Lawson’s Lectures have become increasingly important to scholars and students interested in tracing the link it provides from the neoclassical to the later period

Overview

A transitional work in the history of rhetoric, long out of print and difficult to obtain partly because of the author’s death shortly after first publication of his venturesome work, Lawson’s Lectures have become increasingly important to scholars and students interested in tracing the link it provides from the neoclassical to the later period of rhetorical development. The present edition, a facsimile edition of the first 1758 Dublin edition, provides the only authoritative text, since all subsequent printings were posthumous and contained numerous minor alterations not the author’s intent.
