Greek prose literature evolved much later than poetry, and rapidly became a sophisticated art-form.

The book examines how this evolution progressed, from about 500 BC down to the time of Plato and Demosthenes. Stylistic choice is treated from the point of view of the relations between speaker and hearer and the balance between innovation and the hearer's expectations.
