This thesis analyses Pyotr Arkadyevich Stolypin’s rhetorical talent: the persuasive skills of his speeches and the peculiarities of his performances. There are three constant elements in his discourses that are red threads within this text: Stolypin’s politeness, firmness and unconditional devotion towards his fatherland. At the beginning of the 20th century, in the period between the two revolutions, his unusual political figure and his nonviolent communication and persuasion were against the current. The most relevant topics of this thesis are the peasants’ liberation from their landowners, the repression of revolutionary acts, the troubles that constantly emerged with the Eastern and Western marginal areas of the Empire, and Stolypin’s replies to Azef’s betrayal and Kutler’s false assertions.
