Descrizione: [L'Année philologique] [Comment] The different judgements on Roman orators of previous generations by the experts and by the lay audience. The excursus in Brutus, 183-200 : Cicero's main point. The differing judgements on artists by experts and laymen. Differing judgements on Greek orators and the Greek tradition of rhetoric. In the Brutus Cicero definitely asserts the primacy of a lay audience and refuses to accept any pattern of an élite of connoisseurs. He puts the question on a theoretical level, but his answer shows that he is fully aware of the vital role the lay audience has in helping the orator create his speech. He also conveys a lesson for a contemporary orator on how to orientate himself. So, more than Cicero's controversy with the atticists is at stake.
