Part of the Rhetoric, Politics and Society book series (RPS)


The conclusion points towards the importance of the oratorical style of each Republican Party figure: Each had a distinctive style of communicating with their audiences which had a significant impact upon their political successes; the context, arenas, and political circumstances that each faced also affected the oratorical and rhetorical style. The conclusion will draw out these similarities and differences, asking whether a ‘Republican Party oratorical style’ is identifiable. It will also provide a summation of how the findings impact upon Democratic Party politics more broadly: For example, how changing expectations of the audience may necessitate a different style of oratory that may require clear lessons for the future.
