Landmark Essays on Rhetoric and Literature by Craig Kallendorf
Book DescriptionThe studies of rhetoric and literature have been closely connected on the theoretical level ever since antiquity, and many great works of literature were written by men and women who were well versed in rhetoric. It is therefore well worth investigating exactly what these writers knew about rhetoric and how the practice of literary criticism has been enriched through rhetorical knowledge. The essays reprinted here have been arranged chronologically, with two essays selected for each of six major periods: Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance (including Shakespeare), the 17th century, the 18th century, and the 19th and 20th centuries. Some are more theoretically oriented, whereas others become exercises in practical criticism. Some cover well-trod ground, whereas others turn to parts of the rhetorical tradition that are often overlooked. Scholars in the field should benefit from having this material collected together and reprinted in one volume, but the essays included here will also be useful to graduate students and advanced undergraduates for course work and general reading. Students of rhetoric seeking to understand how the principles of their field extend into other forms of communication will find this volume of interest, as will students of literature seeking to refine their understanding of the various modes of literary criticism.

Protean Virgil, Hardback (March 2015)
Taking Virgil's poetry as a case study, The Protean Virgil argues that when we try to understand different readers' varying responses to the same text over time, we should take into account the physical form in which they read the text (e.g. manuscripts, books, or computerized files) as well as the text itself.
Other Virgil, Hardback (October 2007)
The story of how the Aeneid has been approached by various postclassical authors - including Shakespeare and Milton - not as an endorsement of the ideals of their societies, but as a model for poems that probed and challenged dominant values, just as Virgil himself had done centuries before.
Virgil and the Myth of Venice, Hardback (July 1999)» View all books by Craig Kallendorf
A comprehensive study showing that the Roman poet Virgil played an unexpectedly significant role in the shaping of Renaissance Venetian culture. The text argues that Virgil's poetry became a best-seller because it confirmed the specific values of its Venetian readers.
