Declamation
DECLAMATION or DECLAMATIO ( Latin
Latin
for "declaration") was a genre of ancient rhetoric and a mainstay of the Roman higher education system. It was separated into two component subgenres, the controversia , speeches of defense or prosecution in fictitious court cases, and the suasoria , in which the speaker advised a historical or legendary figure as to a course of action. Roman declamations survive in four corpora: the compilations of Seneca the Elder and Calpurnius Flaccus , as well as two sets of controversiae, the Major Declamations and Minor Declamations spuriously attributed to Quintilian . Declamation had its origin in the form of preliminary exercises for Greek students of rhetoric: works from the Greek declamatory tradition survive in works such as the collections of Sopater and Choricius of Gaza
