Title: Phraséologie oratoire
Subtitle: suivi des Lettres amoureuses
Written By: Philippe Desportes
Edited By: François Rouget

En 1579, Henri III convie certains lettrés à rédiger des manuels de rhétorique et d'éloquence pratique. Le manuscrit autographe de Desportes contenant une «phraséologie oratoire» éclaire sa réelle contribution au projet d'éloquence de Henri III. Ce manuscrit de belles phrases vient rappeler que les activités des membres de l'Académie du Palais se poursuivirent au-delà de leur cadre de réunion comme pour concrétiser par écrit et mettre en pratique les fruits de leurs débats oraux. In 1579, Henri III asked a select group of scholars to put together handbooks on rhetoric and eloquence for him. The manuscript signed by Desportes, containing a "public-speaking phraseology", throws light on his contribution to Henri III's project.
