Cicero's de Oratore and Horace's Ars Poetica

By George Converse Fiske; Mary A. Grant | Go to book overview

PREFATORY NOTE

Professor Fiske had virtually completed the first draft of this article at the time of his death, though his revised draft covered only the three topics called Cicero's De Oratore, Philosophy, Rhetoric, and Poetics, and τὸ πρέπον. I gathered practically all the material for the remainder of the work from his first draft, trying to arrange it according to his last plan, though this proved difficult as parts of several outlines were left. He seems fully to have decided on naming chapters II and III De Arte and De Artifice. The arrangement of the rubrics in the different chapters, is, I think, chiefly as he would have had it, with the exception of the main topic in the last chapter, The Perfect Orator and Poet. He had placed this under chapter III, since it is usually associated with the heading De Artifice in ancient writings on rhetoric. I have shifted it to chapter IV, however, since it seemed to give better balance to the whole, and seemed itself a rather effective summary of the argument. He had called his last chapter simply Conclusion.

The material in the three topics mentioned above is virtually as it stood in the revised draft. I have rearranged and reorganized considerably the material of the other rubrics from the first draft, cutting out repetitions, and omitting what seemed irrelevant to the present article, but at no point have I tampered with his argument.

The language throughout is almost entirely Mr. Fiske's. I have checked his references, and added the bibliography, summary, and index.
