Esteemed professor Michael D. C. Drout brings his expertise in literary studies to the subject of rhetoric. From history-altering political speeches to friendly debates at cocktail parties, rhetoric holds the power to change opinions, spark new thoughts, and ultimately change the world. The study of rhetoric not only leads to a greater understanding of how personages such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Winston Churchill elevated the power of speech to majestic heights, but also to a stronger proficiency in using rhetoric in anyone's day-to-day life.
Rhetoric, Comedy, and the Violence of Language in Aristophanes' Clouds (repost)

Daphne O'Regan, "Rhetoric, Comedy, and the Violence of Language in Aristophanes' Clouds"

After an incredible year of creativity, posting 52 new songs over the course of 2015, They Might Be Giants and Idlewild Recordings are proud to announce the release of their new disc PHONE POWER. Boasting 18 pop gems, Phone Power continues the all-killer, no-filler tradition of the band's current efforts. The disc includes I Love You for Psychological Reasons , the stand out track that will be lodged in your head with barely a second listen. Recorded in a secret location in New York City with Pat Dillett (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, The National, David Byrne) this album finds the Giants working mostly in the same power-packed configuration as their hard-working live line up, with a minimum of production embellishments.
