Excerpt from Elements of Composition for Secondary Schools
The student of composition needs more than an abundance of models. He must have the theory of composition explained in the permanency and accuracy of print. He does not require much theory, but he needs that little im... mensely; and he must have a textbook.
His best textbook, so the authors of this volume believe, will be neither a treatise on rhetoric nor a mere assemblage of developing exercises. Its outline should be firm and clear, for the plan must be based upon sound logic and sound psychol ogy. Its method of presentation should be informal, but con sistent and practicable. Its subject matter, its illustrations, its suggestions, should lend themselves to expansion or selec tion both by those who learn and those who teach. It should stimulate the mind, while providing that upon which the mind may feed.
