Hugh Blair - Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres
Publisher: Southern Illinois University Press | 2005-03-01 | ISBN: 0809324326 | PDF | 640 pages | 10.57 MB
This new edition of Hugh Blairâ€™s Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres, edited by Linda Ferreira-Buckley and S. Michael Halloran, answers the need for a complete, reliable text.
Although the extent of its influence cannot be measured fully, Blairâ€™s Lectures on Rhetoric and Belles Lettres was undoubtedly a primary vehicle for introducing many eighteenth- and nineteenth-century scholars to classical rhetoric and French belletristic rhetoricâ€”its success due in part to the ease with which the lectures combine neoclassical and Enlightenment thought, accommodating emerging social concerns. Ferreira-Buckley and Halloranâ€™s extensive treatment revives the tradition of belletristic rhetoric, improving the understanding of Blairâ€™s place in the study of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century discourse, while finding him relevant in the twenty-first century. This edition contains forty-seven lectures and remains faithful to the text of the 1785 London edition. The editors contextualize Hugh Blairâ€™s motivations and thinking by providing in their introduction an extended account of Blairâ€™s life and era. The bibliography of works by and about Blair is an invaluable aid, surpassing previous research on Blair.
