Gestures We Live By

Garrick Mallery (1881a, 1881b),15 on the other hand, also distinguishes two
types of gestures, instinctual and conventional, and argues that ... His knowledge
of previous treatises on gesture is also remarkable, since it allows him to discuss
from Quintilian's classic work to Andrea de Jorio's. ... Washington, Annual

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.

Excerpt from The American Elocutionist: Comprising 'Lessons in Enunciation', 'Exercises in Elocution', And 'Rudiments of Gesture'; With a Selection of New Pieces for Practice in Reading and Declamation Tar question has often been asked, doubtingly, whether it is possible to teach the art of reading, by the use of rules. Any art which is grounded on recognised principles, may, certainly, be taught by rules deduced from these principles. Every teacher who corrects the emphasis, the inflections, or the pauses, which his pupils use in reading, must have, in every instance, a reason for his correction. All such reasons are rules; and these it is the duty of the teacher to impart. These, in fact, are themselves the instructions which he has to give.

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.

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.

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.

Excerpt from Law of Evidence The philosophy of the present age is founded on a more charitable view of human nature than was indulged in by the prejudices of our ancestors, whose rules of action were often framed in the darker ages of the human race, and by narrow minded and bigoted persons. If, says Mr. Taylor, the rules of exclusion, recognized till lately by the English law, had been really founded, as they purported to be, on public experience, they would have furnished a omost revolting pic ture of the ignorance and depravity of human nature. In rejecting the evidence of parties to the record, and other interested witnesses, the law acted on the presumption, not only that such persons, sooner than make a statement which might prejudice themselves, would commit deliberate perjury, but that, if they did so, juries would be incapable of detect ing the falsehood. A more unfounded calumny upon the veracity of Witnesses and the intelligence of juries cannot well be imagined.
