dc.description.abstract Both Cicero and Winston Churchill are considered titans of rhetoric, but only once before have the two been put into scholarly dialogue with one another. Sir Harold Nicolson and his friends sat down to determine whether or not Churchill lived up to the standards set by Cicero in his De Oratore. I intend to expand upon this article to make a more detailed and accurate comparison between the two, and I will show that Churchill was indeed a Ciceronian orator. In order to demonstrate this point, I will draw from the two authors' speeches and their other works in which they discuss their process and philosophy.
