Greek Orators IV: Andocides, Hardback Book


Rational persuasion and appeal to an audience's emotions areelements of most literature, but they are found in their purestform in oratory.

The speeches written by the Greek Orators fordelivery in law-courts, deliberative councils and assembliesenjoyed an honoured literary status, and rightly so, for the bestof them have great vitality.

There is no crude, primitive stageof development: the earliest speeches are perfect in form andhighly sophisticated in technique.

They inform the reader aboutaspects of Greek society and about their moral values, in adirect and illuminating way not paralleled in other literature. Text with translation, commentary and notes.
