"At last a text that allows students to study the primary texts of classical rhetoric situated in their historical and social context. Williams selects judiciously among foundational texts and also offers rich introductory essays that make clear the historical, intellectual, and cultural setting in which the study of rhetoric took root."
—David Zarefsky, Northwestern University
"An Introduction to Classical Rhetoric offers a scholarly alternative for students of classical rhetoric which is both accessible and engaging."
—Beth Bennett, University of Alabama
From the Back Cover
An anthology of primary texts in translation, An Introduction to Classical Rhetoric offers an overview of the social, cultural, and intellectual factors that influenced the development and growth of rhetoric during the classical period.
Featuring classical rhetoric from the Sophists through St. Augustine, Williams provides an in-depth introduction to the period, as well as introductions to each author and each selection. Examples of rhetoric are interspersed between captivating, thought-provoking explanations and analyses that give new context and meaning to these ancient texts. Each selection includes study questions to enable students to develop multiple perspectives on the material, stimulate critical thinking, and provide starting points for dialogue.

The translation of "The Encomium of Helen" is not very good. Other texts should have better versions of translations too.
The book came in two weeks, which is still before the estimated arrival date, but I wish it had come earlier.
