About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1939, this book addresses the literary treatises written by Greek historian and rhetorician Dionysius of Halicarnassus. Bonner studies the scholar's devotion to the imitation and detailed analysis of the finest Greek examples, and the hierarchical system in which Dionysius installs them. This book will be of use to anyone with an interest in ancient rhetoric.
