Description

This award-winning biography delves beyond the myths about Ancient Rome's most famous assassin: ';A beautifully written and thought-provoking book' (Christopher Pelling, author ofPlutarch and History).

Conspirator and assassin, philosopher and statesman, promoter of peace and commander in war, Marcus Brutus was a controversial and enigmatic man even to those who knew him. His leading role in the murder of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March, 44 BC, immortalized his name, but no final verdict has ever been made about his fateful act. Was Brutus wrong to kill his friend and benefactor or was he right to place his duty to country ahead of personal obligations?

In this comprehensive biography, Kathryn Tempest examines historical sources to bring to light the personal and political struggles Brutus faced. As the details are revealedfrom his own correspondence with Cicero, the perceptions of his peers, and the Roman aristocratic values and concepts that held sway in his timeBrutus emerges from legend, revealed as the complex man he was.
