The Trivium The Liberal Arts of Logic Grammar and RhetoricThat noble endeavorThe liberal artist travels in good company Sister Miriam Joseph freuently cites passages from William Shakespeare John Milton Plato the Bible Homer and other great writers The Paul Dry Books edition of The Trivium provides new graphics and notes to make the book accessible to today's readers Sister Miriam Joseph told her first audience that the function of the trivium is the training of the mind for the study of matter and spirit which constitute the sum of reality The fruit of education is culture which Mathew Arnold defined as 'the knowledge of ourselves and the world' May this noble endeavor lead many to that endIs the trivium then a sufficient education for life? Properly taught I believe that it should beDorothy L SayersThe Triviumis a highly recommended and welcome contribution to any serious and dedicated writer's reference collectionMidwest Book Review This wonderful book is marred by the use of the politically corrected personal pronoun I mean the self conscious and inappropriate use of she when what is meant is the generic heEveryone knows that he is generic And if one really cannot stand to abide by this convention then one can use the eually generic theyThe use of she in this edited version of the book is both incorrect and injects awareness into the mind of the reader that his reading material is being used by the publisher as a platform to shoehorn a Socialistic ideology into his subconscious And among those bright enough to understand this fact the result both detracts and distracts from the value of the reading material itselfObviously the good Sister would not in 1937 have indulged in such Orwellian activities and nor would any publisher of the time have inflicted such stupidity upon her workIf people wish to express their left wing ideologies they are welcome to do so – on their own recognisance and under their own name But using another person's work someone long dead to promote this vapid form of Cultural Marxism – especially since that person would have disagreed with such a policy – seems morally objectionable to meI am not alone in finding the tendency I have identified above highly irritating and I now avoid publishers – as well as individual authors – on this basis
