Inventing Lincoln: Approaches to His Rhetoric

Authored by D. Leigh Henson PhD

Inventing Lincoln: Approaches to His Rhetoric does not develop a new, provocative interpretation of Abraham Lincoln-as some readers might require to justify a new Lincoln book-but it does pursue a purpose that none of the other 15,000+ books in Lincoln studies has ever attempted. This book examines how Lincoln's rhetoric has been treated in twenty-one Lincoln biographies, from 1872 to 2016, and thirty-six rhetorical studies, from 1900 to 2015: five books and thirty-one book chapters or essays published in peer-reviewed journals largely unfamiliar to the general public. Treatments of Lincoln as a speaker/writer have in turn shaped the world's perceptions of Lincoln the man, Lincoln the politician, and Lincoln the statesman. For more information, access
