R194. The Revival of Aphrodite’s Daughter: Rhetoric in Contemporary Poetry(,  ,  ,  ,  ) “Persuasion is Aphrodite’s daughter: it is she who beguiles our mortal hearts.” So wrote Sappho 2,600 years ago, and rhetorical figures, once considered disingenuous outliers, have undergone a shift in perception by poets who recognize them as the enduring armature of many memorable lines of poetry—from the political to the postconfessional. After two previous panels on rhetoric, five poets discuss additional rhetorical figures as they exist in their own poems and in those of poets they admire.
