    Ivan R. Dee 1998; US$ 8.99

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00

    The birth of rhetoric is traced back to the 5th century B.C.E., when the first theoretical treatises on rhetoric were drafted.

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 182.00

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    The Praecepta Tonica by John of Alexandria (5 th -6 th cent.

  • Homer's The Iliad and The Odysseyby Alberto Manguel

    Atlantic Books 2013; US$ 10.19

    The stories of the Trojan war and Helen of Troy, Patroclus and Achilles, the Sirens and the Cyclops are embedded in western culture, yet readers often fail to recognise that they were made famous by two epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey , and one blind poet: Homer.
