    Although the later 18th century has been regarded as parliamentary oratory's golden age, its speaking history remains to a large extent unexplored. Drawing on contemporary sources ranging from newspaper reports to memoirs, this study looks in detail at the making of a rhetorical culture inside and outside the House of Commons during a period when Parliament consolidated its authority as a national institution and gained a new kind of prominence in the public eye.
