(5 stars; 3 reviews)

In 1906, William Jennings Bryan, himself a famous American orator, and Francis Whiting Halsey compiled a series of the most famous orations of all time. They are ordered by both geographic area and time period, ranging from Ancient Greece to their contemporary United States. This is the second volume in this series, in which the most famous speeches of great Roman statesmen are collected, including Cicero, Seneca, and Julius Caesar. - Summary by Carolin (7 hr 31 min)
