The Trivium consists of three liberal arts pertaining to language. Grammar, logic and rhetoric have been studied for over two thousand years as a way of refining both a speaker and their speech. With extra sections on euphonics, poetic meter and form, ethics, and proverbs, this unique compendium contains a wealth of rare information.
If you've ever wanted to know more about the power of 'P,' the hypnotic quality of anapestic tetrameter, or how to change the mood of a verb, then look no further. If you've ever needed to spot a red herring, wield a zeugma, or improve your ethos, then this is the book for you.
