Isaeus

$ 2.99

The teacher of Demosthenes, Isaeus was an early 4th century BC orator, who was later listed as one of the ten Attic orators, according to the Alexandrian canon. His twelve extant orations are all on subjects connected with disputed inheritances, on which subject Isaeus appears to have been well acquainted. His oratory resembles the style of his teacher, Lysias, notable for its pure Attic and lucid quality. However, Isaeus is more aggressive and flexible in his presentation, which went on to influence the work of Demosthenes. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This eBook presents Isaeus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
