Letter to the Editor: Critique of “The Rhetorical Tradition”

In my letter, I discuss my studies of “The Rhetorical Tradition,” a text book I read for my History of Rhetoric course. In my letter, I note its heavy focus on ancient Western male writers. I critique this bias, pointing out the lack of representation of female and non-European rhetors in the text’s depiction of rhetorical history. I call for a more inclusive approach to the rhetorical canon, emphasizing the importance of diversifying perspectives to enrich future editions of the book.
