Excerpt from Composition and Rhetoric: Based on Literary Models

The book is intended to furnish a complete course in high schools and for beginning courses in academies, seminaries, and normal schools. It is recommended that high school students master first the lessons on narration and description, paying especial attention to devices for ornamentation and to description in the short story; then take up exposition and its combination with narration and description, emphasizing the work on the book review, the historical or biographical essay, and the nature sketch; and complete the course with argumentation and persuasion as found in combination with the other three forms of discourse in the debate and the oration.

To Mr. George B. Aiton, State Inspector of High Schools for Minnesota, and to Mr. R. W. Bruere, of the Department of English, The University of Chicago, the authors are indebted for the reading of the work in proof and for many valuable suggestions.
