My heavens. Plato vs. the sophists; St. Augustine and other Christians
vs. classical eloquence; Calvin and other reformers for instance on the
place of rhetoric in preaching; for "inveigh" try Agrippa, on the Vanity
of Arts and Sciences; Francis Bacon, Advancement of Learning and
especially Novum Organum, demoting rhetoric and book learning; Milton,
Paradise Regain'd.

This example may not fall under "inveighing against eloquence," but
Bacon in several different works argues against the use of metaphor and
other rhetorical devices in speech and writing, at least for scientific
purposes.
