Cicero speaking before the Roman Senate

M.A. Student Daniel Ruprecht recently penned an article for Eidolon, the online journal for public-facing Classical Scholarship.    "Truthful Hyperbole, Honest Bullshit: Ancient Rhetoric Explains Why Trump’s Lies Work So Well" digs into Ciceronian Rhetoric, hyperbole and the connections between the rhetorics of the Late Roman republic and president Trump.  This piece built on Daniel's work in the graduate proseminar and his subsequent presentation of the paper at the CAMWS meeting in Albuquerque last April.   Congrats to Daniel on a thought-provoking and interesting piece!
