American Rhetoric
Over screenshot5,000 speeches and sermons, plus a declaration or two, are indexed on this site, which contains some of the most stirring words in history. On the list of the top 100 American speeches, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" is followed by well-known classics from John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The Online Speech Bank offers a wealth of oration, from Malcolm X's "The Ballot or the Bullet" to Cher's eulogy for Sonny Bono. The Movie Speeches section is chock-full of gems, including the "greed is good" pitch from Wall Street and Jack Nicholson's famous utterance, "You can't handle the truth!" in A Few Good Men. Students and speechwriters may want to brush up on their own rhetorical figures with over 200 audio examples of common speaking devices. Who knew that both Prince and George W. Bush were so fond of antimetabole? (in Communications & Writing)
