Political Eloquence in Greece: Demosthenes. An analysis is given of the principal elements and characteristics of Demosthenes's eloquence.
Demosthenes was a Greek statesman and orator of ancient Athens.

Demosthenes learned rhetoric by studying the speeches of previous great orators. He delivered his first judicial speeches at the age of 20, in which he argued effectively to gain from his guardians what was left of his inheritance.

His political career spanned three decades, during which time Greece fell victim to Macedonian control, 1st under Philip II, then Alexander the Great. Demosthenes' defiance of Macedonian imperialism cost him his life but earned him a reputation as one of history's outstanding patriots. He Demosthenes (384-322) profoundly shaped one of the most eventful epochs in antiquity. This is one of the best books on Demosthenes and 3rd century Athens I know of.

Demosthenes, Athenian statesman, recognized as the greatest of ancient Greek orators, who roused Athens to oppose Philip of Macedon and, later, his son Alexander the Great. His speeches provide valuable information on the political, social, and economic life of 4th-century Athens. His strong desire to sue his guardian, Aphobus, in the courts, coupled with a delicate physique that prevented him from receiving the customary Greek gymnastic education, led him to train himself as an orator. He also studied legal rhetoric.
