Speech and Narrative in Thucydides’ Histories

Latimer, James A.

This thesis will explain the relationship between speech and narrative in the Histories. I will argue that Thucydides uses the speeches to comment upon the narrative and to insert perspectives that would be missing from the narrative otherwise, so that the reader will have the emotional reactions that Thucydides wishes to inspire.
