Rhetoric in the Clerk's Romance

Campos, Maria Cristina Pimentel
Abstract
This study is concerned with the devices of rhetoric, the specific expository and persuasive techniques, which make the Clerk's argument of the story of Griselda an artistic romance. My demonstration has been made through the analyses and exemplifications of the devices of occupatio, sententia, descriptio, apostrophe and exclamatio, interpretatio, and direct speech, which contribute to making the tale a medieval romance.
