Excerpt from The Elements of Reading and Oratory
Such are the exceptions which may be taken to the most systematic and elaborate writers on elocution: writers of the higher aim, and the more solid worth. Of others, it is scarcely necessary to speak; for they attempt rather to mitigate the 'evils of the existing method of instruction, than to remove them by introducing another. Their observations are local, iso lated, special: not without value in the particular instances to which they apply; but apart as they are from principles, and incapable of generaliza tion, they merely supersede the incidental and arbitrary dogmas of the instructor.
