Quintilian, born in Spain about 35 CE, became a widely known and highly successful teacher of rhetoric in Rome. The Orator's Education Institutio Oratoria , a comprehensive training program in twelve books, draws on his own rich experience.
It is a work of enduring importance, not only for its insights on oratory, but for the picture it paints of education and social attitudes in the Roman world. Quintilian offers both general and specific advice.
He gives guidelines for proper schooling beginning with the young boy ; analyzes the structure of speeches; recommends devices that will engage listeners and appeal to their emotions; reviews a wide range of Greek and Latin authors of use to the orator; and counsels on memory, delivery, and gestures. Butler, provides a text and facing translation fully up to date in light of current scholarship and well tuned to today's taste. Russell also provides unusually rich explanatory notes, which enable full appreciation of this central work in the history of rhetoric.

He urged the methods be combined, for if they were to only follow the former, "the student will only hear the corrections" and not necessarily absorb the material; and the latter where the students "are more willing to listen to advice than criticism" Ibid. One of the more important traits in teaching involves assortment of subject matter according to Quintilian.
