Excerpt from Tropes and Figures in Anglo-Saxon Prose: A Dissertation Presented to the Board of University Studies of the Johns Hopkins University for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

The ancient rhetoricians treated the subject in its relation to the whole body of classical writings without any special reference to individual authors. They regarded it as a branch of Rhetoric, not as a basis for the determination of the author's literary art. Gerber's work1 is the best modern treatise in the classical method. In it, no investigation is attempted of the styles of the various authors; citations are made from several languages simply as illustrations of tropes and figures.
