Excerpt from The Essentials of Effective Gesture for Students of Public Speaking It is generally admitted that good gestures help to vitalize, illuminate, and emphasize verbal expression. And if students of the art of speech-making can be led to understand the underlying principles of gesture, and the reasons for its expressiveness, a notable improvement of their style of delivery can be effected. In our instruction and our textbooks dealing with this subject there has been a tendency to inform the student, ex cathedra, that he should use such and such a gesture on this and that passage. In thus performing the function of trainers only, we get more or less mechanical results on the passages in question, but we do not give the insight which enables the student to apply the gestures to similar or analogous ideas wherever expressed. To tell him, for example, that "thousands of acres" may be indicated by a broad sweep of the hand is surely less beneficial than to lead him to understand that the passage of the hand through space conveys to the audience the idea of extent.

Excerpt from Essentials of Public Speaking: For Secondary Schools But skill ih speaking is still more valuable as a means of persuasion. The time will never come when people will not flock to hear men plead causes of vital interest. There will always be a demand for those who can speak well, for business interests require men who can present cases well in the courts. The effective jury lawyer will secure a much larger share of the business of the courts than the man of equal learning and high character who is not effective as a speaker. Leaders in committees, conventions, and other deliberative assemblies are almost invariably effective speakers, for it is a well-known fact that most of the important business of life is shaped by pithy, energetic, short speeches. The testimony of the great orators is overwhelming in sup port of faithful and vigorous practice in the art of public speaking. Gladstone declares that time and money spent in training the voice and body is an investment that pays a larger interest than any other and Spurgeon says, I believe that every one Should train his voice and body, first, for the health it affords; second, for its educating effects' third, for the advantage it gives over others for usefulness. And Wendell Phillips, in defense of such training, a very important factor in his own education, declares that it is useless to waste words on any man ignorant of the vast power of agree able and eloquent speech in a republic.

Excerpt from Essentials of Public Speaking Short evening courses in public speaking have become so popular that the problem Of supplementing the work in the class room with helpful text material has given instructors great difficulty. The average text book is too large and night students have not the time to carry out programs of selective reading. The author has attempted to fill this need by setting forth in a brief, concise form only the essentials of the subject. He does not claim for the work any originality of analysis; his sole aim has been to include in one small volume a brief but comprehensive outline of the fundamentals of effective speaking in as logical an order as the subject permits.

Excerpt from The Structure of an Effective Public Speech The short addresses in this small volume originally were delivered by the author as one of the members of a class in public speaking at the West Side Y. M. C. A., in New York' City. Mr. Walter H. Robinson, who conducted the class, requested that the addresses be put in written form. This was done, with some amplifications, and the addresses were then read before the same class. Some of the members were kind enough to sug gest that the addresses should be pre served in printed form, as they believed they had derived valuable assistance from them. In deference to this sugges tion the author has had them printed privately, without making any attempt to secure a publisher for the purpose of having the work distributed generally.

Excerpt from Public Speaking: A Treatise on Delivery With Selections for Declaiming Most of the books that deal with the art of delivery belong to one of two general classes: (1) those containing generalizations that are all very good, but of no practical utility to the student of speaking; (2) those that are full of elocutionary directions and rules, that lean toward dramatic reading rather than public speaking, and stress mechanics rather than mentality. The treatment in this volume aims to be more Specific than the one and less technical than the other. The mental requirements for speaking are emphasized throughout. Experience has shown that students should, at the outset, be put on thought-analysis, as is outlined in Chapter I; that the idea of thought-expression should be firmly fixed before the consideration of technique. Since public speaking is largely an art, no book of this nature can wholly supply a method or supplant a teacher. A few rules are given in the text, but these are rather principles to be grasped than rules to be memorized; and even then, perhaps, the able teacher can often make an example more effective without any rule.

Excerpt from The Book of Public Speaking, Vol. 1 The art of public speaking is one thing - eloquence is another. Often one hears successful examples of the former far removed from the latter. The mere ability to speak fluently is not uncommon, but far more important than the mere flow of language is the power of putting forward convincingly the views and Opinions which the speaker desires to impart. When to that ability is added the gift of polished and fluent diction, the added attraction of real eloquence, then one has the orator, although there are singularly few in the present age who can truthfully lay claim to that distinction. By the very nature of things real eloquence must be a diminishing quantity, and the dominating factor driving to that end is the growing cult of unemotionalism broadening wide Spread down through the Universities and Public Schools to the great middle-class. To-day the appeal is to the intellect, to the reason of one's audience. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Public Speaking Principles and Practice Tins book is designed to set forth the main principles of effective platform delivery, and to provide a large body of material for student practice. The work laid out may be used to form a separate course of study, or a course of training running parallel with a course in debating or other original speaking. It has been prepared with a View also to that large number who want to speak, or have to speak, but cannot have the advantage of a teacher. Much is therefore said in the way of caution, and untechnical language is used throughout. The discussion of principles in Part One is intended as a help towards the student's understanding of his task, and also as a common basis of criticism in the relation between teacher and pupil. The preliminary fundamental work of Part Two, Technical Training, deals first with the right formation of tone, the development of voice as such, the securing of a fixed right vocal habit. Following comes the adapting of this improved voice to the varieties of use, or expressional effect, demanded of the public speaker. After this critical detailed drill, the student is to take the plat form, and apply his acquired technique to continued dis course, receiving criticism after each entire piece of work.

The Tone System in Public Speaking and Reading

View: 665

Excerpt from The Tone System in Public Speaking and Reading: A Discussion of the Sources of Effectiveness in Oral Expression and in the Teaching of Oral Expression, With Illustrations and Suggestions This book is born of a desire to make plain and practical that which I believe to be the main source of effectiveness in delivery - the true expression of feeling. Constant observation has convinced me that the failure to speak naturally and well rarely arises from inability to grasp or express thought, but almost always from the inability to grasp or express feeling. By feeling, however, is not meant the "emotional" as when we speak of an emotional preacher, but earnestness, that certificate from the soul that the thought is genuine and that the speaker or reader is sincere. It is unfortunate that this department of expression has in marked degree been ignored, and that "thought" in a confused or narrow sense has received almost sole consideration. I believe this to be due, first, to the failure to perceive the universality of the symbols of emotion irrespective of the language in which the emotion is clothed, and, second, to the failure to perceive the scope and power of the principle of reference to experience. In elaborating the foregoing statements, in the work itself, I have thought it wise to depart from the veiled and sometimes insidious references that have characterized text-books on elocution, and, instead, to state frankly what I believe to be wrong or right in existing systems, and my reasons therefor. There has been altogether too much flattery and adulation in public and too much abuse and condemnation in private, in pedagogical circles of elocution and oratory.

In listening to a fine speech, well delivered, the effect seems to spring from a wonderful spontaneity; all is so natural, and so apparently facile in achievement. Lucidly logical, and now passionately moved; anon, diverting with wit, humour, or sarcasm; suddenly transporting us into the realms of fancy, the speaker is always arresting, and enchains the attention and sympathies of his entire audience.-from "Chapter IV: Fluency of Thought, Ideas, Etc. Mental Aspect in Public Speaking"If you've been searching for a "complete guide to the Preparation and Delivery of Speeches and the Development of Mind, Ideas, Vocabulary, and Expressions required by Public Speakers," here you go. Published in 1911, the advice this handy little tome offers is quite helpful... if you can find it through the author's florid prose and dictatorial attitude. From preparing mentally to give a speech and training one's memory to recall your words to such practical matters as breathing exercises and lists of vocabulary words with which to practice pronunciations, you'll learn much... and feel as if you've gotten your knuckles rapped. BONUS! Practice with the supplied speeches from the Earl of Chatham (1708-1778) on the "importance of the colonies," Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) on the "repeal of the corn laws," Lord Macaulay (1800-1859) on "Parliamentary reform," and others!OF INTEREST TO: fans of kitsch, public speakersAUTHOR BIO: ERNEST GUY PERTWEE was professor of elocution at City of London School, and is also the author of The Reciter's Treasury of Verse, Scenes from Dickens for Drawing-Room and Platform Acting, and other books.
