    schema:reviewBody ""Rhetoric is the art of persuasion, whether spoken or written. In the first chapter of Rhetoric: Readings in French Literature, Michael Hawcroft sets out its principles comprehensively and lucidly, providing an easily-consulted outline of key terms and a wide range of illustrative examples. Subsequent chapters explore rhetoric at work in different genres, via close reading of texts which range from the drama of Moliere, Racine, and Beckett; Montaigne, Sevigne, and Gide on the self; and the prose fiction of Laclos, Zola, and Sarraute, to poetry by d'Aubigne, Baudelaire, and Cesaire, and the oratory of de Gaulle and Yourcenar. This is at once a handbook of rhetoric and a guide to its application to French texts from the sixteenth century to the present."--Jacket." ;
