Comments The Penguin Book of Twentieth-Century Speeches

  • Lizzy

    First I have a confession to make, I did not read all the speeches contemplated in The Penguin Book of Twentieth-Century Speeches. I picked just those that were more significant to me. Maybe I will read others later on, I don't know. There were, for certain, famous and notorious words by well known personalities that helped shape the world. I was moved by some of them, irritated by others and emotional about a few. Churchill comes out as, perhaps, the supreme speaker. But it could be that I was [...]

    This book is certainly worth the read, but really demands a large footnote.It is ridiculously focused on The UK, particularly royalty. There is a large volume of British domestic policy speeches from parliament in the early 20th century that turned me off just because I can't imagine anyone outside of Great Britain gives a crap (Princess Diana's eulogy is just one example of a speech that just doesn't matter that much. I mean, did you remember until I told you that her brother went apeshit at he [...]


  • Shishir

    Good collection of well written speeches (unfortunately written books are unable to portray the delivery and cadence) - providing explanation and context in history


  • Nick Twinamatsiko

    It was in this book that I came to learn of, and greatly admire, such people as Emeline Pankhurst ('I am here as a soldier who has temporarily left the field of battle in order to explain - it seems strange it should have to be explained - what civil war is like when civil war is waged by women.' I LOVED that!)Eugene McCarthy ('I say to you the political prophets have prophesied falsely in these eight years. And the high priests of government have ruled by that false prophecy. And the people see [...]

    bagian waktu jenderal Mac Arthur menyampaikan pidato perpisahan bikin gw terharu, dia banyak ngejelasin tentang keabadian sebuah pengabdian yang walaupun zaman berubah tetapi nilai pengabdian yang tulus akan tetap kekal abadi"Duty-Honor-Country"


  • Alyson Bowers

    awesome! Gives you some wonderful and not-so-wonderful speeches made by some of the most influential speeches of people in the 20th century. Speeches from Churchill, Mandela, Luther King, and even the evil dictators like Hitler, Stalin, etc.


  • Will James

    I never tire of picking up this book, and scanning its pages to be constantly amazed and inspired by some of the greatest rheotric of the last century.


  • Richard

    Anyone with an interest in politics or the last century's history should check this out. It's in bite-sized pieces, too.


  • Sara

    If you ignore the fact that it's ridiculously eurocentric and only about 3 speeches are by women, it's a good anthology.


  • Conor

    great to dip in and out of
