Summary
"Theodore Parker (1810-1860) was one of the most influential preachers and abolitionists in 19th-century Boston. For his fight against the decay of the American society at the time of slavery as well as clerical and political corruption, his most important weapon was his effective use of language. This book contains a survey of Parker's rhetoric and the role of proverbs and proverbial expressions in political oratory in general that is followed by a detailed analysis of Parker's proverbial rhetoric in many of his speeches, sermons, and letters"--Back cover
