If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the power of ‘P’, the hypnotic rhythm of anapestic tetrameter, or how to change the mood of a verb, then look no further. If you’ve ever needed to catch a red herring, wield a zeugma, deepen your pathos or improve your character, then this is the book for you. The TRIVIUM consists of the three liberal arts pertaining to language, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. These ancient disciplines have been studied for over two thousand years as a way of refining 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.

Review: This book and the accompanying three others are without doubt some of the best and most prized books I have bought and own. They are at once both a wholistic intellectual and visual treat. If not familiar with this style of learning and education one may find it a bit hard going at first but by god is the effort worth it. By wholistic I mean everything taught is related to the others subjects in a way I’ve never seen before, it opens ones eyes to the majesty of our world, it installs mental discipline, it develops ones ability to reason, think and learn. It the educational foundation such as this that gave us the Renaissance and the likes of Giordano Bruno. You will not regret buying these books, they will change you and change how you see the world.

Now to the quality of these books, these are solid hardbacks with sown in sheets produced on really nice quality paper, they will last you many years. I wish I had known about the Trivium et Quadrivium years ago. If these are used by young people their education will increase by leaps and bounds. These books belong in every University, College, Library and home of all self and home educators.
