7″ x 9″ The Angel of Diction is an assemblage piece honoring the English teachers of yesterday, and a drama teacher I had in high school, Bert Pollack, whose partner would yell out “e-NUN-ciate!!!” Tomayto, tomahto, this little book, published in 1915 gave the guidance one needed to speak correctly. Mmm hmm. I’m from Long Island, NY originally, and my vernacular has probably never been very correct. I dare say this angel would be shaking her little head at me.
