Suomalaisen Tiedeakatemian Toimituksia Humaniora 32. We humans seem to be drawn to the obscure and it is no surprise that thinkers ever since antiquity have been discussing the nature of obscurity and how to draw a line between the obscure and the clear

Suomalaisen Tiedeakatemian Toimituksia Humaniora 320. Helsinki: The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters 2003. We humans seem to be drawn to the obscure and it is no surprise that thinkers ever since antiquity have been discussing the nature of obscurity and how to draw a line between the obscure and the clear. In her book, the history of obscurity takes its beginnings in an ancient rhetorical tradition.

This book vigorously confronts an intractable problem of literary study: the early attempts to articulate what is conceived as being obscure, unsayable, difficult: Unwilling to accept the ubiquitous explanation of obscurity as a characteristic of modern and postmodern writing only, Mehtonen traces the continuity of theories within the pre-modern formation of literary study in the arts of poetics, rhetoric, grammar and dialectic.

The Educational Theory of Quintilian (Marcus Fabius Quintilianus). Quintilian discussed lies and lying at great length due to the fact that he was teaching the art of oratory

The Educational Theory of Quintilian (Marcus Fabius Quintilianus). Analyst: Paul O'Neill. In the final passage of book two of Institutio Oratoria, Quintilian discussed the 'instrument' of oratory, stating that instrument was "that without which the material cannot be shaped into the work which we wish to produce" (Ibid. Quintilian discussed lies and lying at great length due to the fact that he was teaching the art of oratory. Overall, he believed "a good man only pleads good causes, and truth itself is defense enough for them without the help of learning" (Ibid. pp 214-15, Book XII).

This book vigorously confronts an intractable problem of literary study: the early attempts to articulate what is conceived as being obscure, unsayable, difficult: Unwilling to accept the ubiquitous explanation of obscurity as a characteristic of modern and postmodern writing only, Mehtonen traces the continuity of theories within the pre-modern formation of literary study in the arts of poetics, rhetoric, grammar and dialectic.

This volume is a theoretically and historically sophisticated attempt to make sense of the connections between critical, stylistic and philosophical debates. It will be welcomed by readers with an interest in literary theory, the history of ideas and concepts, and pre-nineteenth-century study of language.
