Andreas Serafim's Attic Oratory and Performance (Routledge Monographs in PDF

By Andreas Serafim

In a society the place public speech used to be fundamental to the decision-making approach, and the place all affairs relating the group have been the topic of democratic debate, the communique among the speaker and his viewers within the public discussion board, even if the law-court or the meeting, can't be separated from the proposal of functionality. Attic Oratory and Performance seeks to make smooth functionality stories efficient for, and so make an important contribution to, the certainty of Greek oratory.

Although a great deal of ink has been spilt over the functionality size of oratory, the focal point of the vast majority of the scholarship during this region has been quite slender, realizing functionality as merely encompassing 'delivery' – using gestures and vocal ploys – and the convergences and divergences among oratory and theatre. Serafim seeks to maneuver past this fairly slender concentration to provide a holistic viewpoint on functionality and oratory. utilizing examples from chosen forensic speeches, specifically 4 interconnected speeches by way of Aeschines (2, three) and Demosthenes (18, 19), he argues that oratorical functionality encompassed refined conversation among the speaker and the viewers past mere supply, and that the surviving texts provide various glimpses of the performative measurement of those speeches, and their hyperlinks to modern theatre.
