This is a delightful little collection of speeches: a portion of Socrates's defense before the Athenian jury, several English speeches during the Middle Ages, Luther before the Diet of Worms, Lincoln at Gettysburg. Each speech is briefly introduced, and this is necessary because some seem obscure. Despite having some references that need explanation, the speeches are, on the whole, quite understandable on their own. The actors read clearly and with the same passion that most likely characterized the original presentations. This collection would be excellent for classroom use.
