Manuscript submitted by Edna Saffy to Dr. Carpenter, June 1, 1974, the paper includes a gold seal and notes in red. This paper will examine the similarities that exist between the POETICS and the RHETORIC, especially in the areas of (1) the evocation of pity and fear, (2) artistic and inartistic proofs, (3) metaphor and strange usage, (4) division, (5) past, present, future, and the probable and, (6) length in an effort to show that the dramatic overtones which pervade both these works (i.e., the RHETORIC and the POETICS) have as their common basis the drama of the period.
