Figuratively Speaking  

Figuratively Speaking: Rhetoric and Culture from Quintilian to the Twin Towers

by Sarah Spence, professor of classics
(Duckworth Publishers, 2007)

Unlike Jedi knights in Star Wars, humans cannot persuade others simply by accompanying words with a wave of the hand. Instead we use rhetorical language, the manipulation of words, to convince others. Spence examines one aspect of rhetoric–common figures of speech–from ancient Rome to the post-9/11 present, and shows how familiar phrases both express what our culture deems important and capture “the ineffable at our core.”

House of Abraham  

House of Abraham: Lincoln and the Todds, a Family Divided by War

by Stephen Berry, assistant professor of history
(Houghton Mifflin, 2007)

Abraham Lincoln’s fractious in-laws tested but could not defeat his legendary forbearance. In this fascinating account of little-known history, Berry shows how Lincoln’s understanding of his wife’s family both tempered his view of the “enemy” and affected national policy.
