Reviews

"Let me close with an example of hypophora--asking a question and then answering it: Should you buy Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric? If you're at all interested in the techniques of writing, yes." -- Michael Dirda "Washington Post"
"What might have been a dry analysis full of Greco-Latin terminology becomes an enchanted garden of lively English prose...the book is beautifully designed and provides its examples in a handsome format...I admire it; I appreciate it; I recommend it." -- Steve Dodson "The Millions"
"The most immediate pleasure of this book is that it heightens one's appreciation of the craft of great writers and speakers... and to rehabilitate writers and speakers whose rhetorical artistry is undervalued...more than anything Mr. Farnsworth wants to restore the reputation of rhetorical artistry & the result is a handsome work of reference." -- Henry Hitchings "Wall Street Journal"
