    The inside game of any serious writing is all here. This is a book for people who love words and are interested in how they work and how they interact with each other. It adds depth and meaning to all the things somebody once tried to teach me a long time ago. Sounds and rhythms and meaning and all the vocabulary to talk about how to talk about wordcraft are spelled out in an easy to read and beautifully fashioned hardcover.

    The Trivium is the three-subject path through the Liberal Arts if Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric (as opposed to the four-fold path of The Quadrivium: Arithmetic, Music, Geometry, and Cosmology). The Trivium is thought-based (rather than content-based) and hopes to lead to the Liberal Arts gold standard of learning how to learn. The subjects are broken down into bite-sized histories, anecdotes, and outlines, full of demonstrated quotations and backgrounds. Its a lot of fun to read, and stands The Trivium is the three-subject path through the Liberal Arts if Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric (as opposed to the four-fold path of The Quadrivium: Arithmetic, Music, Geometry, and Cosmology).

It’s a lot of fun to read, and stands shoulder to shoulder with the more visual The Quadrivium, which I read last year.

    I find this book to be a fantastic compendium of the linguistics arts. I hoped I would have had this book when I was in college as it summarises in a great way linguistic matters and it would have come in handy.

    I won't go back to this. Renaissance art history is much more interesting.

    An excellent book, but would have loved to have had some exercises/examples in there. it's worth getting.

    This is a kind of anthology. John Michell wrote the first section. Others wrote the rest.

    This is a nice coffee table book. It contains information on Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. The examples contained within are from quotes and other sayings. So if you ever wanted to know what a zeugma is and don't feel like Googling it, this book could be for you.

    This book is a sampler platter. It tries to cover just about every aspect of the trivium, plus some extras, but there isn't space to get into any one topic in any depth, since each gets only one or two pages at most. I liked the book overall, but my feelings about the individual chapterseach written by different authorsvaried widely. Luckily for finishing the book, I tended to like each chapter better than the ones before it. "Euphonics" might appeal to many readers; I got tired of it by D and This book is a sampler platter. It tries to cover just about every aspect of the trivium, plus some extras, but there isn't space to get into any one topic in any depth, since each gets only one or two pages at most. I liked the book overall, but my feelings about the individual chapters—each written by different authors—varied widely. Luckily for finishing the book, I tended to like each chapter better than the ones before it. "Euphonics" might appeal to many readers; I got tired of it by D and skimmed the rest. I started reading seriously with "Grammar" and "Poetic Meter & Form." The last three, "Logic," "Rhetoric," and "Ethics, were the most fascinating to me, but also the most frustrating because I wanted to know more. The three appendices didn't seem all that closely tied to the chapters, and I could have traded them for more information on the trivium itself. This is a readable, interesting introduction to the trivium, but don't expect to learn much about any one piece of it from this book alone.
