Overview of Voices in the Storm: Confederate Rhetoric, 1861-1865

Voices in the Storm examines the significance of oratory in the Confederacy and also explores the nuances and subtle messages within Confederate speeches. Examining metaphor, argument, and figures of speech, Fritz finds some surprising shifts within the Civil War South. Her research indicates that four years of bloody conflict caused southerners to reconsider beliefs about their natural environment, their honor, their slaves, and their northern opponents.

Synopsis of Voices in the Storm: Confederate Rhetoric, 1861-1865

Examining metaphor, argument, and figures of speech in the oratory of the Confederacy, Fritz (history, The Victoria College, TX) suggests that the Civil War did cause southerners to reconsider some of their long-held beliefs about their natural environment, their honor, their slaves, and their northern opponents. In making this determination Fritz also looks at audience response to speeches, thus touching on the average citizen's response to the war as well. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
