Great speakers throughout history are those who possess certain qualities or talents that capture us. These speakers lead thousands with the simple power of their words and their presence. Choose a great leader or speaker from history who has made speeches before a crowd. You can research a political figure, an activist leader, or anyone who you consider worthy of analyzing as a spectacular orator.
Choose one or a few of the speeches they have made that you felt were particularly powerful and analyze what techniques they use to successfully move an audience. Don't focus on body language or the way their voice sounds, focus on the text they have written itself. Do they create a certain mood or tone through their word choice? What powerful images or language do they use and how do these affect their audience. Cite specific pieces of their speech(es) to support your analysis and include a link to the full text of the speech and/or a video of them making the speech that you analyzed.
In your comments, try making some connections! Do any of the leaders in Animal Farm use similar techniques when they address the animals of the farm? Do you notice any common threads among the techniques these great orators use?
