Excerpt from Reasonable Elocution: A Text-Book for Schools, Colleges, Clergymen, Lawyers, Actors, Etc

Many people Object to any special study Of elocution for the reason that they do not expect to become profes sional readers or public speakers. Would they Object to the study _of literature because they cannot hope to become authors Or to that Of music because they would never dream Of becoming a Beethoven, Mozart, or Gluck 'p Or to that Of astronomy or any Of the sciences because they can never aspire to the position Of a Her schel or a Humboldt Who most keenly enjoys a fine picture Certainly he who has the most extended knowl edge Of what the picture represents - Of those facts in nature or in life which he finds delineated therein, and on the accuracy Of which he can pronounce. Why is it that the person Of cultivated mind takes so much more pleasure in a noble poem than does one who is ignorant Is it not because a wider acquaintance with the subject, and the ability to compare its beauties with those charms similar, and yet different, possessed by other poems, causes him to see 111 the work many things Of which the uneducated one is ignorant SO 'with elocution. A knowledge Of it not Only enables us to interpret thought and emotions to others, but assists us very greatly in understanding them ourselves. The person who can read well is, even as a listener, very different from him who can not.
