Avis de l'équipe

Kids studying history will enjoy Great Speeches in History, an audiobook that brings the past alive through spirited reenactments of Western history's greatest orators. Performances from gifted actors like Norman Rodway, Samuel West, Elizabeth Bell, and Peter Markiner add drama and emotional intensity to speeches that move through history, from Socrates and William the Conqueror through to Patrick Henry and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. More than simply speeches, this collection teaches listeners about the social and political issues affecting people from Ancient Greece into the early 20th century.

Description

From Socrates to Charles I, Danton to Lincoln - here are some of history's most significant figures with their most important speeches. Fighting for justice, for freedom of speech, and sometimes even for their own lives, these orators demonstrate the finest resources of language in the service of the most dramatic issues of their day.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

my first audible title

this title gives the listener a wide range of great speeches given by key people throughout history. The entire selection is worth getting just for the lesser known speeches of Susan Anthony and Jefferson Davis...but I also found the ones by George Washington to be enlightening.

Historical Rather than Great

To me, only three of the speeches of the selection are truly great, the rest are merely historical.
