Since Jacob Burckhardt's Kultur der Renaissance in Italien (1869) rhetoric as a significant cultural factor of the renaissance has largely been neglected. The present study seeks to remedy this deficit regarding the arts by concentrating on literary theory and its aspects of imagination (inventio), genre (dispositio of the genera), style (elocutio), mnemonic architecture (memoria) and representation (actio), with illustrative examples taken from Shakespeare's works, but also on the intermedial rhetoric of painting and music. Particular attention is given to the rhetorical ideology of the Renaissance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[...] students of rhetoric are well rewarded by the wealth of material and ideas presented."Ina Habermann in: Anglia 2/2007 "Pletts Werk wird mit Sicherheit fur Jahrzehnte die definitive Darstellung zur Renaissance als einer rhetorisch gepragten Kulturepoche sein. Von vergleichbaren alteren Klassikern wie die aus der Feder der Romanisten Curtius und Lausberg hebt sich diese Untersuchung durch ihren modernen kulturgeschichtlichen und -wissenschaftlichen, interdisziplinaren und intermedialen Ansatz ab. Die anglistische Rhetorikforschung hat in diesem Fall der Romanistik den Rang abgelaufen."Wolfgang G. Muller in: Poetica 1/2 2006
