By George P. Landow

Labelled "an stylish Jeremiah" by means of a journalist of his day, the urbane Victorian Matthew Arnold should have bought the comparability with the previous testomony prophet uneasily. Writing within the Nineteen Seventies, Norman Mailer turns out to owe not anything to the biblical for his description of an extended scorching wait to shop for a chilly drink whereas reporting at the first voyage to the moon. but either Arnold and Mailer, George P. Landow asserts during this publication, are sages, writers within the nonfiction prose type of secular prophecy, a style richly inspired by means of the episodic constructions and harshly severe attitudes towards society which signify previous testomony prophetic literature.

In this publication, first released in 1986, Landow defines the style by means of exploring its rhetoric, an method that permits him to light up the relationships between consultant works of the 19th century to each other, to biblical, oratorical, and homiletic traditions, and to such twentieth-century writers as Lawrence, Didion, and Mailer.
