Descrizione
The object of this study is to learn to what extent Quin tilian was able to stem the tide that was fast sweeping Latin literature to its decadence. To do this, we must reinstate this great master of Latin prose in his environment, as the epoch is an important factor in elucidating the work of an author, but Quintilian is an author incidentally, a modest schoolmaster in the main, whose life work seemed to be to array all his forces against the prevailing sententious style of his day; yet, he too, falls at times into the epigrammatic fashion he so much deplored.
