Interesting Agreed with some points, disagreed with others He seemed chauvinistic at times. Since I decided to incorporate rhetorical analysis in the courses that I teach, I figured that I needed to read the classic work on rhetoric I picked up this edition a number of years ago at a rummage sale, and it had the Poetics as well Reading these works and the introductory material helped me to see how integrated Aristotle s ideas were across his works, since the Rhetoric related not only to the the Poetics but to his works on logic, ethics, and politics as well I have not read these T Since I decided to incorporate rhetorical analysis in the courses that I teach, I figured that I needed to read the classic work on rhetoric I picked up this edition a number of years ago at a rummage sale, and it had the Poetics as well Reading these works and the introductory material helped me to see how integrated Aristotle s ideas were across his works, since the Rhetoric related not only to the the Poetics but to his works on logic, ethics, and politics as well I have not read these The introductory material also pointed out Aristotle s differences with his teacher Plato on rhetoric and imitative poetry Reading only Corbett s introduction.
