Clarence Darrow, trial lawyer of the famous Scopes and Leopold/Loeb Trials, writer, debater, and lecturer who spoke for the have-nots while cultivating an image of mythic proportions, is the subject of this two-part study that first surveys Darrow's life and rhetoric and then provides authoritative texts of his important speeches along with a complete speech chronology. Jensen documents the creation and enlargement of Darrow's personal myth and provides intelligent analysis and criticism of the rhetoric.
