Chapter Summary

Brutus of Cicero, commonly, considered as one of the three elements of the great Ciceronian triptych of oratory treaties, the other two being the De oratore and theOrator. Cicero was probably helped in his business without doubt, not only by the Liber Annalis of Atticus, as he says, but also by the family tree that the same Atticus, expert in subject, had made to highlight the direct ancestry of M. Brutus with L. Brutus. We see that, under the color to wear a literary judgment, Cicero recalls key moments of Roman political life. We understand that a sentence or a passage of Brutus's "letter" were able to be interpreted by Cicero - honestly or not - as indicating that Brutus intention of "make something " for the Republic. The original text of the chapter is in French.
