Excerpt from Rudiments of Gesture, Comprising Illustrations of Common Faults in Attitude and Action: With Engravings, and an Appendix Designed for Practical Exercise in Declamation Education, as the great agent in human improve ment, aims not at a local, or particular, but an idea] and general excellence, in man. Early culture, therefore, should be so directed as to free the mental habits, and their external traces, from the injurious influences of imperfect or erroneous example, and to give the youthful powers that free and generous scope, which their full development requires. The standard of perfection in delivery, should be formed on no views limited merely by the arbitrary customs of a commu nity, - perhaps by the corrupting influence of neglect or perversion, as regards the discipline of imagination and taste. The genuine style of eloquence is that, surely, which gives the strongest, freest, and truest expression to the natural blendings of thought and emotion within the human breast g - breaking through all arbitrary restraint, and submitting only to the guidance of reason, - or, rather, listening intuitively to its suggestions.

This book examines emblems (or emblematic gestures) from a pragmatic view, that is to say, as autonomous gestures that fulfill communicative functions, embody illocutionary values, and act as signals of cognitive relevance. Emblems are conceived as multimodal tools on the frontier between verbal and nonverbal modes, and are part of the communicative repertoire of individuals and sociocultural groups. Emblems constitute clear cases of embodiment and are susceptible to many processes of metaphorization (contrasting or not with verbal metaphors), metonymy, and interference between modalities. The applications of emblematic analysis are numerous, from lexicography to second language learning, or to natural language processing.

Gesture and movement on stage in early drama have previously received very little attention in scholarship. The present collection of essays is the first book to present sensible, penetrating, and wide-ranging discussions of the gestural effects that were integral to the early stage. In addition to consideration of the influence of classical rhetoric and reference to medieval texts and documents, the essays carefully bring to bear evidence from the art of the period and hence will be of great importance for those interested in the visual arts as well as the theater; eschewing both the naive methodologies promoted in past criticism and ephemeral theoretical concerns, the book is truly ground-breaking. These essays will need to be perused by every serious theater historian or student of art concerned with the late Middle Ages.

Excerpt from Marvels and Mysteries Mr. Bidder flattered himself that the tone in which he put this inquiry was genial. But the fact is, he was used to public speak ing of a kind - teetotal and down-with everything-pleasant platforms, and such like - and in spite of himself his manner was pompous, and, perhaps, a trifle dictatorial. Still, this was not sufficient to account for the behaviour Of the gentleman addressed. That individual sprang from his seat and turned towards Mr. Bidder with a gesture which was distinctly threatening. For a moment it really appeared as though he was about to assault him. If such was his intention he very wisely thought better of it, and sank back into his corner. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

But the reader who may find in the first six plays matter less weighty than he desires, however amusing it may be, will find the later group as full as he can wish of that profound penetration of the mask of humanity, that admirable humour, that comprehension and characterisation Of men and women in general, which make Moliere as fresh nowadays as ever, and which refresh, charm, enlighten, and warn us at one and the same time. But of course the charm in reading will be most present to those who can, as Mr. Van Laun urges, call up, as they read, the change of voice, the step, the smile, the gesture, the twinkle of the eye or movement of the head in the actor.
