Review Essay: Somatography Public

This essay discusses research by James Fredal, Anthony Corbeill, Paul Goring, and Davis W. Houck and Amos Kiewe. These four books cohere around a category of bodily rhetorics, and yet each intervenes in discrete historical periods and places, moving, in turn, from ancient Greece and Rome to eighteenth-century England to twentieth-century United States. Taken separately, each book shows how a dual focus on bodies and rhetoric may bring into focus questions heretofore underexamined in a rhetorical context, including new questions about nature, about performance, about politeness, and about disability and the American presidency.
