The Rhetoric Canon reconsiders rhetoric's role in ancient Greek and Roman times through modern times. Bringing together scholars in classics, rhetoric, and comparative literature, this anthology questions whether a list of canonical texts actually holds authority in the discussion of rhetoric. It includes views on Homer, Longinus, Plato, Aristotle, Isocrates, Cicero, Augustine, Jerome, Dante,

Boncompagno da Signa, Eberhard the German, Erasmus, Kant, and Adorno.

The contributors illustrate that differences concerning the role, nature, and function of rhetoric throughout history have relegated some texts to obscurity, revived some, and peripheralized others, while consecrating new ones. In reality, the canon of rhetorical texts turns out to be far more flexible than is generally recognized.

Together the topics explored and the rhetoricians discussed in The Rhetoric Canon insist that rhetoric and its intellectual practices remain crucial to education today.
