The Most Significant Rhetorical Work in French Is: L'Abbe Joseph Cyprien Nadal's "Dictionnaire d'Eloquence Sacree" (Paris: Migne, 1851).
Smith, Robert W.
Joseph Cyprien Nadal's "Dictionnaire d'Eloquence Sacree" is an outstanding work because of Nadal's thorough treatment of all the elements young speakers should know as they embark on a platform career. The most important of these elements are invention, disposition, style, memory, and delivery. In addition, the book discusses five duties of the Christian orator, provides sound advice on impromptu speaking, offers original ideas on argumentative disposition, serves as a model for publishing a multivolume rhetorical encyclopedia, and cautions preachers about plagiarism. Such information is invaluable to all speakers. (DF)
