Reviews

I thoroughly recommend this all-too-short compilation of some of the most memorable speeches on record. There are all the obvious ones – Socrates after his sentence of death, Elizabeth I at Tilbury, the Gettysburg Address. Martin Luther, Danton, Emmeline Pankhurst, Burke and Fox are also here, but for me the highlight is Charles I from the scaffold. He famously wore two shirts so that if he trembled people wouldn’t think it was from fear. But listening to his long, rambling, repetitive, clearly nervous words you wonder how many of those onlookers were fooled.
