With a unique combination of alphabetical and descriptive lists, "A Handlist of Rhetorical Terms" provides in one convenient, accessible volume all the rhetorical terms - mostly Greek and Latin - that students of Western literature and rhetoric are likely to come across in their reading or will find useful in their writing.
The Second Edition of this widely used work offers new features that will make it even more useful: a completely revised alphabetical listing that defines nearly 1, terms used by scholars of formal rhetoric from classical Greece to the present day; a revised system of cross-references between terms; many new examples and new, extended entries for central terms; a revised Terms-by-Type listing to identify unknown terms; and, a new typographical design for easier access.

How could anyone who loves words be without this book? I cherish my copy. For someone like me who so often thinks, "There must be a name for that" -- prompted by an object, concept, or figure of speech -- this book is a boon and a blast. I encourage songwriters and lyricists to look over the classic suggestions for rhetorical approach, contained in the appendix. Every item on the list is a line of attack for a song or a poem. I find this inspiring. This and Schott's Almanac have been kept for months in the bathroom reading bin.
In certain areas their mastery leaves little room for addition, if not improvement. Rhetoric has nothing to do with words in the singular but everything to do with them in combinations. In those days oratory mattered to anyone seeking a place among the hierarchy. Oratory conjured action. Rhetoric gave oratory its juice. Originally rhetoric applied not to documents but the utterance. Not only in politics did it reign but in law. In those days rhetoric rendered by pen was negligible, by voice it was foremost in public affairs.
Oratory these days lacks the prominence it once had. Politics and trials depend more on agreement between influential individuals the latter with a lawyers opening and closing statement has the edge over the former.
Rhetoric as a study to aid a speaker on a survey of university curriculums is not even conspicuous by its absence. If reduced to near invisibility in the aural arts, rhetoric retains a visible presence in the written ones. However rhetoric is not a cure-all. Besides valuing rhetoric the ancient Greeks valued moderation too. As expected. As a fiction writing, I found the book a valuable reference resource and a learning tool, as well. A great job by Lanham! Although this text is not presented in an entirely accessible way, the depth of the book makes up for it.
Most terms are explained in detail and some have pronunciation guides. So, for a more-involved reference on rhetorical terms, this one is good. Be warned, though, some explanations get a bit erudite.
