The Attic Orators (Classical World) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The speeches of the Attic orators were mostly composed for delivery in the Athenian law-courts and assembly, and at other public meetings such as state funerals, in the late fifth and fourth centuries BC. They contain much information about, and valuable insights into, the life, thought, and institutions of classical Athens, while at the same time being central evidence for the development of Athenian prose literature. This accessible book includes chapters on each of the ten Attic orators (Antiphon, Andocides, Lysias, Isocrates, Isaeus, Demosthenes, Aeschines, Lycurgus, Hyperides, Dinarchus) — their lives, literary style and works — as well as a survey of the origins of oratory in Greece.
