For thousands of years, rhetoric—the art of a good man speaking well—was one of the pillars of Western Civilization, and we need it now more than ever.
Organized by lesson, this answer key contains the answer to every "lesson review" question in The Rhetoric Companion. It's a valuable resource for a teacher who quickly needs the definition for pathos, the last canon of rhetoric, a quick discussion of ad baculum, or perhaps a couple examples of dactylic words.
What People Are Saying:
"As the classical movement matures, teachers and parents need more resources to carry us through rhetoric toward the quadrivium. The Wilsons provide an easy overview for those trying to gain access to rhetorical skills and a great review for those of us already digging in." -Leigh Bortins CEO, Classical Conversations and author of The Core: Teaching Your Child the Foundations of Classical Education
"Rhetoric, the capstone of a classical education, is well-explained and well-taught herein. It is not necessary that a teacher who writes be able to "do" what he teaches—but it is routinely much better if he can. In this text we have authors who have learned, in fact, mastered their subject and then share the wisdom, tools, and techniques they have learned." -Marlin Detweiler President, Veritas Press
