Subject:        Shakespeare in Parking Lot; Rhetoric

I had a chance to see a very respectable production in the unlikely
locale of a New York City Parking Lot-Julius Caesar. It's closing this
weekend, and OTHELLO will begin next week, to be followed by HENRY V in
August. More of the company, anon.

For the present, I recall it being said-and taught-that Brutus's and
Antony's funeral orations taken together contained virtually every trope
of classic rhetoric. Is there an article somewhere that anatomizes
these, example by example? Or would any correspondent like to take a
shot?

Thanks,  Harvey Roy Greenberg
