Excerpt from The American Elocutionist: Comprising 'Lessons in Enunciation', 'Exercises in Elocution', And 'Rudiments of Gesture'; With a Selection of New Pieces for Practice in Reading and Declamation
Tar question has often been asked, doubtingly, whether it is possible to teach the art of reading, by the use of rules. Any art which is grounded on recognised principles, may, certainly, be taught by rules deduced from these principles. Every teacher who corrects the emphasis, the inﬂections, or the pauses, which his pupils use in reading, must have, in every instance, a reason for his correction. All such reasons are rules; and these it is the duty of the teacher to impart. These, in fact, are themselves the instructions which he has to give.
