Abstract

This study was concerned with the techniques by which Senator Long endeavored to gain acceptance by an unsympathetic audience. To achieve this, the speech text was consulted to determine the speaker's use of invention, arrangement, style, and delivery. This was done in the light of historical findings as well as the immediate speech setting. The purpose of this study was to analyze and evaluate Senator Long's methods of using the above four canons, and to render some judgment of the effectiveness of the speech by considering also its immediate and delayed effects.
