From the Publisher:

This book offers a long-awaited thorough and systematic understanding of Baltasar Gracián's thought. Emphasizing Gracián's theories on wit, this book shows that these theories are meant to explain and give method to every apprehension of ideas; it orderly unveils Gracián's art of invention. It also places this art within Gracián's whole comprehensive doctrine of señorío, that is, mastery. This book is grounded on an exhaustive analysis of Gracián's complete works, direct reviews of classical and baroque theories of wit, and of baroque exemplars of eloquence. This book provides a fair and close view of the baroque rhetoric, at last.

Arturo Zárate Ruiz's book rewards readers, who need not be specialists, with lucid discussion of Gracián's theories, as well as the links between Gracián's views and those of his recent and remote predecessors. This book, grounded in thorough research and rare insight, should assist development of contemporary theories of wit, invention, and style. Lloyd F. Bitzer, University of Wisconsin

Zárate Ruiz has made a significant contribution both to the study of Gracián and his times and to the history of rhetoric. Michael Leff, Northwestern University

There is nothing comparable to Gracián, Wit, and the Baroque Age available in English or in Spanish. Dr. Zárate Ruiz has firmly established Gracián as a key figure in the European rhetorical tradition. Don Paul Abbott, University of California, Davis
