Bons, Fellow of University Jane M. Roisman, Bartlett ProfessorThomas K. The chapters in each volumeare to be written primarily for those approaching the topic for the first time be theyundergraduates, graduates, or members of the public and for scholars operating inadjacent fields of study, but at the same time those working in the particular fieldshould also find them stimulating.
Writing for these different types of reader at thesame time is difficult, and so I should say at the outset that the chapters in thisCompanion are ultimately written for its primary audience, but I hope specialists inthe field will find them beneficial. Each chapter provides an overview of the mainissues of its topic, at times raises new questions or adopts a fresh approach to itssubject matter, and has a bibliographical essay that acts as a guide to further reading. All quotations from ancient sources are translated into English. An introductorychapter 1 discusses the idea of rhetoric, the status of rhetoric studies present andfuture , and summarises the various chapters of this volume.
There has been much work undertaken on rhetoric in recent years, as will beobvious from the discussions in the following chapters and references in theirnotes. More than that, translations of ancient works dealing with rhetoric, speechesby orators, and so forth, are appearing with welcome regularity these days, thusmaking these works available to a wider reading audience. Under the general editorship of Michael Gagarin, the series will consist oftranslations of all of the speeches and major fragments of the Attic orators, and severalvolumes have already been published.
Put simply, the. Preface: For Readers — and Reviewers xiaim of this book is to be the most comprehensive treatment of Greek rhetoric withinone set of covers. It is a mixture of narrative and thematic analysis that traces thehistory of rhetoric from Homer to Byzantium and through a variety of approachesconsiders rhetoric in a number of historical, social, political, intellectual, and literarycontexts. Allcontribute to give us different insights into how the Greeks saw and used rhetoric,and how it was as fundamentally at the heart of their society as law, politics andreligion — and by extension, how it influenced, and became part of, many of the thingsthat we take for granted today.

Theeditor usually bears the brunt of criticism, and in many cases rightly so. I also asked them to communicate with those whose chapters over-lapped with, or had some bearing on, their own, rather than writing in a vacuum many did so, either in email exchanges or by exchanging drafts. Thus, the chaptersare written in as uniform a manner as one can get with three dozen different people,for the most part take the work of others into account, and are approximately thesame length with the exception of Chapter 11 on Rome: see its first note forexplanation.
I hope that the book will appeal to even critical reviewers. I have a number of people to thank. I was delighted when Al Bertrand at Blackwellinvited me to edit this Companion, and my thanks go to him, as they do to SophieGibson and Angela Cohen at Blackwell for their support. I am very grateful toAnnette Abel, whose keen eye at the copy-editing stage saved this book from manyerrors and inconsistencies. I am indebted to the contributors to this book, not onlyfor agreeing to write on their topics in the first place and doing such a first-class job but also for putting up with a demanding editor who tried to be diplomatic and morethan a few times failed.
Years from now, some of us may look back on this project andlaugh. My long-suffering family has also my heartfelt thanks for continuing to put upwith me, despite knowing that as one project ends another begins. In deference to the fact that the majority of contributors live in North America andEngland, I have allowed both English and American spellings.
Greek names are anglicised, but someterms and technical words are transliterated, and these will be obvious when theyappear. Titles of ancient works are given in full except in the case of speeches by the Atticorators see p. Rhetoric of Aristotle Rhet.

Speeches of the Attic OratorsReferences to speeches by all Attic orators are by their number only. The following is alist of the numbers and titles of the speeches cited in this book for ease of reference speeches believed to be spurious but which have survived under the name of aparticular orator are listed under that name and cited as such in the chapters.
We pose such a question for readers of this Companion to consider because whatone studies and how one goes about the study of Greek rhetoric ultimately aredecisions fueled by the values, interests, and purposes one brings to the table. Theextant texts of classical Greece are mute until read, but how they are read andthe purposes to which such readings are put are contingent matters.
Contemporary appropriation is typically motivated by a desire to draw inspirationfrom classical texts to meet current theoretical, political, or pedagogical needs. Such a distinction does not imply, of course, that historians do their work in avacuum. As Chapter 2 of this Companion, written by T.
Poulakos, nicely documents,historians are guided by current needs, values, and interests that arguably complicatethe distinction between historical reconstruction and contemporary appropriation.
