Abstract/Description: The focus of this thesis centers on the recovery of primary sources. The eulogies within this text serve as examples of speeches which do not fully adhere to the generic propriety of their classification, yet still produce significant rhetorical action embedded within themselves. These eulogies highlight the link between memory and knowledge, and the influence each has upon the other. It is the attempt to persuade public memory in their given rhetorical situation which makes these particular speeches so rhetorically attractive. The goal of this thesis is not to judge whether or not the rhetors are successful with their method of persuasion, the aim is to make manifest the rhetorical action within the texts themselves.
