    With this level of the progymnasmata, the focus is on ceremonial rhetoric – rhetoric used for special occasions. (For instance, to praise or blame a person, place or event; think anniversaries or funerals). Writing about historical figures involves encomia (praise), invectives (blame), ancient and modern comparison essays, letter writing, and speeches. Bonus coverage includes standardized test essays, college admissions essays, and how to evaluate your own test essay. Classic literary models include Plutarch's Lives, Cicero's letters, and selections from Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War. Modern literary models include Uncle Tom's Cabin, Silas Marner, and selections from Jane Austen.

    This biography explores the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Harriet grew up in a household where girls were taught not to speak in public, yet her brothers were encouraged to become preachers and speak their minds. Her parents couldn't stop Harriet from speaking out against the institution of slavery through written words though, and Harriet published the above-noted novel, which powerfully drew attention to the evils of slavery. Jean Fritz artfully explores this influential woman's childhood, family, and life amidst the era and social movements of the time through 144 pages of light, engaging text and black and white photographs.

    Originally published in 1854, this book by Reverend Nehemiah Adams provides an eyewitness account of slavery in the Antebellum South. Reverend Adams expected to see cruel bondage and other evils touted by the Abolitionists, but instead he found a well-ordered society in which the slaves were mainly content and properly cared for by their masters. He warns his Northern brethren that a continued assault upon the South's "peculiar institution" of slavery would ultimately destroy the Union and the Black population. Needless to say, this book was attacked by the Abolitionists, but despite its outdated views, it provides a perspective on slavery that rarely makes it into the history books. The book is full of insightful detail about the daily lives of slaves, including their dress, housing, family life, and worship. Reverend Adams' mixed feelings about slave auctions are included, and he even wrote a chapter in response to the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. Facsimile reprint of the nineteenth century original. 214 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
