The Application of Meiosis and Paradiastole in Shakespeare's Tragedies
2024 1-4955-1196-0
"In this book, I draw insights from textbooks in the history of rhetoric to analyze the diverse applications of amplification, with a specific emphasis on the rhetorical figures of meiosis and paradiastole. I investigate the mechanism and relevance of these applications in the context of William Shakespeare's tragedies, illustrating how Shakespeare dramatizes his understanding of these rhetorical strategies through plot and character." -Dr. Houman Mehrabian
