Overview

Studies in English Composition, with Lessons in Language and Rhetoric.

By Harriet L. Keeler and Emma C. Davis.

Contains 210 pages. Arranged for schools having a weekly exercise in composition, the course extending through three or four years. Of the twenty chapters, thirteen are devoted to composition (narration and description, eight; persuasion, two; versification, letter-writing, took reviews, one each); two chapters, to a study of authors; and of the remaining five, one to the sentence and paragraph. Rules for punctuation and the use of capitals- with lists of common abbreviations, are slipped into an appendix. The general plan provides a selected model for study, followed by parallel exercises. These, usually lists of topics, are accompanied by "suggestions to the writer," which supplement the apparently meager treatment of rhetoric.
