E. Rabinovitch.
Everyday's Rhetoric.


This book by a famous classic scholar and translator Elena Georgievna Rabinovitch is a collection of well-written and thrilling research descriptions.
The first sections contains articles on the oral speech styles: on the genesis of modern jargons, on the process of sovietisation of the language, etc.
The second section is dedicated to the continuity of the classical tradition in Russian literature: the author dicusses such controversial questions as whether Pushkin read works by Horatio, and Dostoevskii -- those by Virgil; what Akhmatova knew of Antinoes, whom she introduced into her Poem Without A Hero, and what Aristotle's term catharsis means.
