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.

Excellent treatment and insightful overview of rhetorical criticism. In this book Foss surveys various methods of criticism (such as metaphor, style, cluster, genre, and ideological criticism), providing a readable techne for both experienced and inexperienced rhetoricians. Clear and insightful content, useful examples and illustrations.
