Bringing together over 40 key readings on rhetorical criticism in a single accessible format, The Rhetorical Criticism Readerfurnishes instructors with an ideal resource for teaching and practicing the art of rhetorical criticism. Unlike existing readers and textbooks, which rely on cookie-cutter approaches to rhetorical criticism, The Rhetorical Criticism Readerorganizes the field conceptually, allowing teachers and students to grapple with the enduring issues and debates surrounding criticism over the past 50 years. The readings are organized around four sections of conceptual issues and debates in rhetorical criticism: critic/purpose, object/method, theory/practice, and audience/consequentiality. Each section is preceded by an introductory essay that puts each reading into context. For added flexibility, an alternative table of contents is also included for instructors and students to customize their teaching and reading.Intended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses in rhetorical criticism, The Rhetorical Criticism Readeruniquely lends itself to thoughtful discussion of the role of the critic in the critical process. It assists readers not only in learning the tools of criticism, but also in reflecting on the values that underlie the critical endeavor.
