"[An] important and challenging book... Cole's re-seeing of the evidence is compelling and provocative. Certainly it willbe of great interest to serious students of rhetoric, Greek prose, indeed, of ancient literature."

"One of the most intelligent and illuminating books on early prose literature."

"Cole's book is a welcome addition to the field of classical rhetorical studies... It is a good example of erudite scholarship."

"Provocative... The evidence Cole assembles is as interesting as his thesis."
