CHARLES de BROSSES (1709-1777)

next

 

French writer.

A very cultured man he studied history, geography, archaeology and languages.

He wrote "Lettres familiéres écrites d'Italie en 1739 et 1740" as a result of his stay in Italy.

The Roman environment where he lived for a while, is described with a lively style, sometimes disrespectful and biting but never common.
