World's Greatest Speeches (Collectable Edition)

Funeral Oration
Pericles Athens, Greece
431 B.C.
The Peloponnesian War had been fought between Athens and Sparta. They had fought as allies in the Greco-Persian War. In the wake of Persian retreat, Athens grew more powerful and Sparta feared the growing expansion of its power. After nearly thirty decades of being engulfed in the war, Sparta won.
Pericles delivered a funeral oration at the end of the first year of the Peloponnesian War to commemorate the soldiers who died in battle. He discussed Athenian democracy and glorified Athens' achievements, perhaps to stir the spirits of a state still at war.
ost of my predecessors in this place have commended him who IV made this speech part of the law, telling us that it is well that T I it should be delivered at the burial of those who fall in battle. For myself, I should have thought that the worth which had displayed itself in deeds would be sufficiently rewarded by honours also shown by deeds; such as you now see in this funeral prepared at the people's cost. And I could have wished that the reputations of many brave men were not to be imperilled in the mouth of a single individual, to stand or fall according as he spoke well or ill. For it is hard to speak properly upon a subject where it is even difficult to convince your hearers that you are speaking the truth. On the one hand, the friend who is familiar with every fact of the story may think that some point has not been set forth with that fullness which he wishes and knows it to deserve; on the other, he who is a stranger to the matter may be led by envy to suspect exaggeration if he hears anything above his own nature. For men can endure to hear others praised only so long as they can severally persuade themselves of their own ability to equal the actions recounted: when this point is passed, envy comes in and with it incredulity. However,

This edition is populated with the rhetoric of people whose words created and changed history.
