Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Quintilian's method is based on the interrelationship between speaking, reading, and writing. Murphy lists and defines the main elements that appear in the "Institutio oratorio. "Each of these elements--Precept, Imitation, Composition Exercises, Declamation, and Sequencing--is further subdivided according to goals and exercises. The first two books of the "Institutio oratorio "concern the early education of the orator, with the focus on the interplay between seen-language and heard-language. Book Ten is an adult's commentary on the instruction of rhetoric. It involves itself primarily with "facilitas, "the readiness to use language in any situation.
