Lectures on rhetoric and belles lettres by Hugh Blair ( Book )
592 editions published between 1765 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 6,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Manuscript, in a single hand, of copies of 39 lectures on rhetoric. Each lecture is organized around a single topic which include the nature and use of criticism; metaphor; hyperbole; rules of figurative language; and the history and types of eloquence. Lecture 6, on language, explores the development of metaphor in "the first ages," when men lacked the vocabulary necessary to describe the objects around them, and includes the language of the Cherokee nations of Canada in the category of such societies. Lecture 27, in discussing oral delivery, describes the three pitches of a man's voice; and the last two lectures in the collection declare tragedy more noble than comedy and explain the importance of the sentiments
