121 Il commence par souligner sa formidable utilité (utilissima) en affirmant qu’elle est la somme des exercices préliminaires. 122 La suite du développement révèle que cette entrée en matière élogieuse est en fait une défense adressée aux adversaires de la déclamation qui déploraient son manque de réalisme et y voyaient l’une des causes du déclin de l’éloquence. Pour contrer ce reproche, Quintilien recommande d’abolir les différences existant entre les exercices d’école et les discours judiciaires : que les sujets imaginés soient aussi proches que possible de la vérité et que la déclamation imite autant que possible les plaidoyers auxquels elle prépare ; qu’on donne des noms aux personnages, qu’on imagine des controverses plus embrouillées et plus longues à démêler, qu’on fasse usage de termes usuels et de plaisanteries.

79 Dans son discours, il s’attache à l’évocation de ce dont il a été privé : Equidem, si me interroges, uixisse me illo tempore non arbitror. Quid enim eram , pro di inmortales ? Aut in qua parte naturae locauit me nouerca ? Bellum mihi nuntiatum est, et hominem quem non peregrinatio detinuit, non absentia ulla a periculo ciuitatis relegauit, somnus uinxit . Quid acti sit manente me intra muros commilitiones mei narrauerunt ; dicitur ingens fuisse proelium, commissa utrimque acies, dubia saepe uictoria et huc atque illuc spes inclinata, cum interim miles in quo plurimum fiduciae, in quo maximum momentum uidebatur, in nulla parte uisus auditur.

G. Theon Prog. 113 (Spengel) ; voir Anderson 1993, 47–53 ; Desbordes 1996, 133–134 ; Pernot 2000, 196, 284. un univers fictionnel 31 déclamation écrit « non pour vaincre, mais pour plaire » (non ut uincat, sed ut placeat),114 avant de poursuivre son réquisitoire en développant le reproche selon lequel la déclamation ne saurait préparer à la pratique judiciaire. La raison invoquée n’est pas tant l’extravagance des sujets que les conditions de l’exercice ou la situation de communication, infiniment plus faciles que dans la réalité des vrais procès : Accedit etiam illud, quod aduersarios quamuis fatuos fingunt : respondent illis et quae uolunt et cum uolunt.
