Toward a Definition of Topos: Approaches to Analogical Reasoning

Lynette Hunter
Macmillan, 1991 - 231 Seiten
The word 'topos' means place, either physical, natural, logical or rhetorical. This collections of essays covers a wide range of mostly English literature from Chaucer and Spenser, via Fielding, to Joyce, with one or two incursions into French writing, in the form of essays on Montaigne and Verne, seeking to apply a rhetorical understanding of 'topos' or commonplaces to the criticism of literature. -- Book jacket.
