Powers of Expression, Expressions of Power: Speech Presentation and Latin Literature Hardcover - 2000

by Andrew Laird


From the publisher

Can a speaker's words ever be faithfully reported? History, philosophy, ethnography, political theory, linguistics, and literary criticism all involve debates about discourse and presentation. By drawing from Plato's theory of discourse, the lively analysis of speech presentation in this book provides a coherent and original contribution to these debates.
