Summary
"Rhetoric is the author's term for the means by which the writer makes known his vision to the reader and persuades him of its validity; and he demonstrates convincingly that there is no essential difference between ostentatiously rhetorical novelists like Fielding and Dickens, and the admired masters of impersonality--Flaubert, James, Joyce...this is a major critical work which should be required reading for everyone concerned in the academic study of prose fiction." [Modern Language Review]
