A Study of Rhetorical Terms in English Renaissance Literary Criticism By:

Rhetoric and Poetry in the Renaissance

In this essay I undertake to trace the influence of classical rhetoric on

the criticisms of poetry published in England between 1553 and 1641. This

influence is most readily recognized in the use by English renaissance

writers on literary criticism of the terminology of classical rhetoric.

But the rhetorical terminology in most cases carried with it rhetorical

thinking, traces of whose influence persist in criticism of poetry to the

present day.
