Part II offers eight classical texts for reading, study, and criticism, and includes discussion questions and keys to the text in Part I. Also included are improved appendices for students to use as starting points for their own research: A Subject Outline for Future Study and A Basic Library for the Study of Classical Rhetoric.New to this edition are online resources, including additional original texts and common speeches that instructors use when teaching classical rhetoric as well as modern speeches that exemplify the use of classical teachings in the oratory of 19th and 20th centuries, such as Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address" and John F. Kennedy’s "First Inaugural" address.
