 About the Book 

Excerpt from Cumnocks School Speaker: Rhetorical Recitations for Boys and GirlsThat young people prefer reading or speaking exercises which are presented to them in some form of story or romance to those of a didactic character, is a fact familiarMoreExcerpt from Cumnocks School Speaker: Rhetorical Recitations for Boys and GirlsThat young people prefer reading or speaking exercises which are presented to them in some form of story or romance to those of a didactic character, is a fact familiar to every instructor. A recognition of this preference has led the compiler of this littler volume to include only such selections as seem to I appeal directly to the fancy and the feelings of youth. Great care has been taken to exclude all excessive or weakly sentiment, and to furnish only that which is fresh, wholesome, and inspiring. The chief aim, however, has been to secure selections possessing good speaking qualities, and at the same time to make a collection of the brightest and rarest specimens of juvenile literature in our language. No attempt has been made to grade the selections from the more juvenile specimens to the more mature, or to introduce any elocutionary advice, which would necessarily be so meagre as to be of little value.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
