New Feature/Quintilian on Figures and Tropes

Anyone interested in classical literature can always use more work on figures and tropes, so I'm hoping to blog through the parts of Quintilian's Institutio Oratoria relevant to this, beginning at 8.6. I am hoping to post one passage each day (we'll see whether that actually happens or not) in Latin and English. I'll take the Latin text from here and the English translation from here.

So, as soon as I hit 'publish' for this post I'll get to work posting our first segment--and, as always, feel free to discuss the passages in the comment sections, especially if you have additional bibliographical references that supplement what the big Q is talking about.
