Some brief overview of this book

The definitive compendium of classic and modern oratory expanded—with a new preface on what makes a speech great.

An instant classic when it was first published a decade ago and now enriched by seventeen new speeches, Lend Me Your Ears contains more than two hundred outstanding moments of oratory. It is selected, arranged, and introduced by William Safire, who honed his skills as a presidential speechwriter. He is considered by many to be Americas most influential political columnist and most elegant explicator of our language. Covering speeches from Demosthenes to George W. Bush, this latest edition includes the words of Cromwell to the Rump Parliament, Orson Welles eulogizing Darryl F. Zanuck, General George Patton exhorting his troops before D-Day, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaking on Bush v. Gore. A new section incorporates speeches that were never delivered: what Kennedy was scheduled to say in Dallas; what Safire wrote for Nixon if the first moon landing met with disaster; and what Clinton originally planned to say after his grand jury testimony but swapped for a much fiercer speech.

One of the more widely read writers about the English language has amassed a personalized compilation of the worlds greatest speeches throughout the ages. Here are more than 200 addresses by figures from Demosthenes to Salman Rushdie that have moved millions—and changed history. Safire gives an introduction to each speech and provides historical background and oratorical tactics.
