An efficient overview.
This book describes various methods of rhetorical criticism. I read it in college and I'm the kind of student who reads books from cover to cover even if I'm not required to. Our class had to use a few of the methods to critique speeches, works of art and later I wrote a huge paper critiquing a movie. It was a good class and a thorough book. I must have had an earlier edition.
A nice overview of rhetorical criticism. I like the examples provided, also.
