speech is undoubtedly climactic in a degree attainable only by consummate art.

Demosthenes must have written down and put into circulation most of his orations. In the next generation after his death, texts of his speeches survived in at least two places: Athens and the Library of Alexandria (early-mid third century BC).

During this period, Callimachus was responsible for producing the catalogue of all the volumes contained in the Library. Demosthenes has books on Goodreads with ratings. Demosthenes’s most popular book is Demosthenes: I Olynthiacs, Philippics Minor Public Orations.

Demosthenes was already 30 when, inhe made his first major speech before the Assembly. The speech, “ On the Navy Boards,” was a marked success. The Assembly or Ecclesia (Ekklēsia), a legislative body composed of all adult male Athenian citizens, had convened to consider a rumoured threat against Athens by the King of Persia.

Demosthenes’ tightly reasoned oration helped persuade. All of the speeches were purportedly written to be delivered to the Athenian assembly and are in fact almost the only examples in Attic oratory of the genre of deliberative oratory.

Demosthenes ( BCE), orator at Athens, was a pleader in law courts who also became a champion of Athenian greatness and Greek resistance to Philip of Macedon. His steadfastness, pungent argument, and control of language gained him early reputation as the best of Greek orators, and his works provide vivid pictures of contemporary life.In democratic Athens, mass citizen audiences - whether in the lawcourts, or in the political Assembly and Council, or when gathered for formal civic occasions - frequently heard politicians and litigants discussing the city's past, and manipulating it for persuasive ends.

The Rhetoric of the Past in Demosthenes and Aeschines explores how these dynamics worked in practice, taking two prominent.But in this year, when all that Demosthenes had lived for and hoped for seemed to fail, Aeschines thought it a good time to begin his attack. Some day you will read his speech for yourselves; and afterwards you must read Demosthenes' speech in answer.

It was a long speech; but of all the speeches Demosthenes ever made, it is the finest.
