Attic Oratory and Performance seeks to make sleek functionality experiences effective for, and so make an important contribution to, the knowledge of Greek oratory.

Although an excessive amount of ink has been spilt over the functionality size of oratory, the point of interest of the majority of the scholarship during this quarter has been really slim, realizing functionality as simply encompassing 'delivery' – using gestures and vocal ploys – and the convergences and divergences among oratory and theatre. Serafim seeks to maneuver past this quite slender concentration to provide a holistic viewpoint on functionality and oratory. utilizing examples from chosen forensic speeches, specifically 4 interconnected speeches through Aeschines (2, three) and Demosthenes (18, 19), he argues that oratorical functionality encompassed sophisticated conversation among the speaker and the viewers past mere supply, and that the surviving texts supply various glimpses of the performative measurement of those speeches, and their hyperlinks to modern theatre.
