A declamation speech is the term used to describe the re-giving of an important or famous speech. This method of teaching was used in ancient Greece where public speaking was considered a necessary art for anybody embarking on a career in public service. A declamation was a practice piece set by a teacher to have a student learn the skills of combining eloquent language with equally eloquent delivery.
