For rhetoric and composition, the last decade of the 20th century might be deemed "The Return of the Ancients."

Hawhee explores the connection between rhetorical training and athletic training. Greek culture is highly agonistic and, as with most civic activities in antiquity, these endeavors were decidedly masculine.
