Sound and Sense: A Handbook of Elocution

 
9780048080011: Sound and Sense: A Handbook of Elocution

It is a far cry from my first days at the Old Vic in 1926, when, if I remember rightly, you used to send me charming little notes of encouragement, and criticizing my short-phrasing, etc., to this year of our Lord, 1941, when you invite me to send your book off with a word of God-speed. But I feel much the same, and when reading your book am conscious of the amount of knowledge my unknown teacher had, and still has, and a very strong feeling that it would be of the greatest value to a person learning to speak English. I am glad to know that you think quiet, reasonable recitation is coming back. The "Ponging" School had much to answer for, and to hear lovely lines spoken is a rare pleasure. Good luck to your book, and good wishes to you.
