Dr. S. S. Curry, President of the School of Expression in Boston, is no mere elocutionist. The insight which has made him so successful as a teacher of vocal expression appears in his writings on various phases of the subject which he has made his life work. – Dr. J. M. BUCKLEY, in the Christian Advocate.

We know of no writer on things relating to voice culture the art of expresgion and the development of the organs of speech, so necessary to public speaking, reading and dramatic interpretation, who possesses in so great degree the interior vision, the deep penetrating insight so necessary to a masterly and luminous exposition of the subject, as does Professor Curry. He is a thinker who goes to the foundation of the subject under consideration and seizes on the basic principles and applies them in a clear and easily understandable manner. ... The foundation p rinciples and mental problems are presented in connection with luminous practical instruction in the cultivation and development of voice and emotional expression, — The Arena.

Dr. Curry's many books are growing into a choice, classic library that no one interested in their general theme can afford to ignore, or will at all be disposed to do so. - Zion's Herald.

Dr. Curry is perhaps the wisest, most discerning, and skillful teacher of the arts of literary expression, and of all the branches of what used to be called elocution, of all who follow that profession in this country. He has fathomed the philosophy of his art and its fundamental principles as deeply as any other man now alive. - Dr. DAVIS W. CLARK, in the Western Christian Advocate.

Dr. Curry is in a class by himself as an author, teacher and leader in the noble art of expression. The five previous books from his pen have opened new vistas into literary appreciation and interpretation, and this latest work is of even more popular interest than any of its predecessors. Dr. Curry has dared to be himself in everything he has ever done as a writer and teacher, and this has never been quite so distinctly marked as in this study of Browning, a book which sheds an entirely new light on Browning and should be read by every student of the great master; indeed, every one who would be well informed should read this book, which will interest any lover of literature. — Dr. WINSHIP, in Journal of Education.

Curry has a way of his own, a new way, of interpreting great literature. He doesn't concern himself with microscopic details of the text, but makes you understand the viewpoint of the writer. — FRANK PUTNAM.

I am profoundly convinced that he has discovered deeper truths and has formulated them more admirably than any other teacher of expression living or dead. – EDWARD RICE.

The men and women of our calling owe to Dr. S. S. Curry, more than to any other man, honor for having contributed a noble literature to this great Art of Expression. — LELAND T. POWERS.

I have all my life been interested in what I have usually called the science and art of expression so as to interpret literature. As I have gone through Dr. Curry's books, it seems to me he tells us how to do it. I shall be glad to see every student taking a course in the science of expression, L. H. MURLIN, President Boston University.

The attention of all who believe that vocal training in both reading and speaking is a necessary part of education and in the furtherance of better methods, is called to the works of Dr. S. S. Curry, which embody the results of his investigations made during the past twenty-five years. Dr. Curry has studied in person under more than fifty teachers, including the most eminent specialists in all parts of the world; he has investigated every phase in the historical development of elocutionary and vocal training, and searched every nook and corner of science and art for those fundamental and illustrative points which will be most helpful to the advancement of all phases of reading, speaking, and dramatic art. He has examined and taught

of ordinary, and of the most special and peculiar cases, and presents the results of his studies, experiments, and experiences in this series of books, some of which are already published and others are ready for the press.

These. with the books in preparation, will constitute a library on the various phases of the whole subject. No pains will be spared in the preparation and publication of these books to make them worthy of the subject. Many able men have urged the completion of these books as a means of promoting the advancement of all departments of speaking, reading, and dramatic art.

To secure the name and address of teachers of expression a small volume will be sent free to any one who will send fifty names and addresses of teachers of speaking, or of persons especially interested in this subject.
