Synopsis

Rational persuasion and appeal to an audience's emotions are

elements of most literature, but they are found in their purest

form in oratory. The speeches written by the Greek Orators for

delivery in law-courts, deliberative councils and assemblies

enjoyed an honoured literary status, and rightly so, for the best

of them have great vitality. There is no crude, primitive stage

of development: the earliest speeches are perfect in form and

highly sophisticated in technique. They inform the reader about

aspects of Greek society and about their moral values, in a

direct and illuminating way not paralleled in other literature.
