Now you would ask what is this “eloquence”?
Well, Elocution is one of the five main disciplines of classical western rhetoric. As such the ancients believed it was an essential part of any child’s education. Indeed as history and ancient epics tell us, that elocution has played an important and decisive role many times. Many battles have been won only by the fire in the blood responding to a speech well given. And many an important decision has been made on a counsel well spoken.
Elocution in it’s essence is the art of speaking. Usually it is equated with a honey laced tongue. But that is not the entirety of it’s meaning. You see, Elocution is the art of speaking, not just using sweet words. And that includes gestures, facial expressions, body language, tone of voice, clarity of thought etc. An eloquent speaker engages the crowd and sways them with his every word.
