“Rhetoric is a vast, old and honorable discipline”

Thursday, March 10, 2011  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I received an unexpected treat in the mail, Ward Farnsworth’s new Farnsworth’s Classical English Rhetoric. I can tell I will enjoy it very much, and not just because of the blurbs from David Mamet, George Will and Victor Davis Hanson –blurb heaven?– or the fine cover art, but because on opening it at random I came to the chapter on “Litotes” and found there such a wonderful illustration from a Churchill speech that I knew instantly that this is a book to be treasured.
