Rhetorical Devices

Rhetorical Devices! Figures of Speech! (Are you excited yet?)

Here's the definition of 'rhetorical' according to Merriam Webster.

So, why are we studying Rhetorical Devices?

So that we can appreciate them when we see them in the Latin we read. We've read Catullus; we've read Ovid, but the master of rhetoric in Latin was Cicero. And we are about to get started reading some of his work. Now, you might appreciate him because he's writing prose instead of poetry, but I hop you can also appreciate the way he has with words. And the rhetorical devices he uses are just a art of that.
