About the Author

Marcus Fabius Quintilianus, commonly known as Quintilian, was born in Spain in the first half of the first century A.D. and came to Rome with the Emperor Galba in 68. He was an active orator and taught rhetoric in Rome for twenty years. In retirement he composed the "Institutio Oratoria," a treatise in twelve books on the education of orators. Most scholars believe he died soon after the Emperor Domitian in the late 90s A.D. Curtis Dozier (editor) is Visiting Assistant Professor of Greek and Roman Studies at Vassar College. He teaches courses on the intersections between classical rhetorical theory and contemporary discourse and is the author of several articles on Quintilian's "Institutio Oratoria." Lee Honeycutt (editor) was Associate Professor of English at Iowa State University before founding Alpine Lakes Design, a web design and consulting company in Ellensburg, WA. He maintains a website devoted to Quintilian's "Institutio Oratoria" and Aristotle's "Rhetoric." The Rev. John Selby Watson (1804-1884) was headmaster of London's Stockwell Grammar School from 1844-1870. He translated Quintilian and several other Latin classics, including works by Sallust, Lucretius, and Cicero, for Bohn's Classical Library.
