Example text

Look at this other! What has he done to encourage or appreciate me? What a mess he is. How I have tried.... I can go on and on and guilt comes right along like my shadow. Can I avoid this? Can I be free of guilt? I do not think it is possible. Paul Tillich describes the anxiety of guilt as ontological. It transcends the subjective and the objective. It is a constant threat in caring.

J. Corbert, James L. Kinneavy, and Richard Weaver, Corder remained a devoted student of classical rhetoric. At the same time—and certainly more than his colleagues aforementioned—Corder sought to pour new wine into the old vessels, radically reinterpreting the classical canons and vocabulary. Even as we seek to understand, appreciate, and apply his theory, we can admit without much loss that Corder is intuitive, speculative, repetitive, often (by his own admission) quirky in his arguments, stingy in his scholarly citations, and given to formal and stylistic experimentation—all of which makes his writings, the later works especially, a mixed bag of mixed genres and effects.

TOWARD A CORDERIAN THEORY OF RHETORIC 39_ did you deprive me of Heaven, Preacher, you and all those others? " (216-17). As a critical reflection upon Corder's earlier, heroic theory, this imagined loss of Heaven is no more (nor less) than a loss or disabling of one's powers of invention, of one's freedom and openness to revision and change. The loss, Corder admits, is entirely "in [the] mind," the effect of a mere story preached over and over by "an alien authority," as Corder would likely have described it in "Jackleg Carpentry," an authority whose demands for "conformity and imitation" must be resisted by all means ("Jackleg" 20).
