Antony’s speech draws a lot of attention from its repetition. In Antony’s speech he compliments Brutus and Caesar practically every time he begins a sentence. Brutus of course…

  • 'Yuval Harari' By Jared Diamond

    logical research to each part of mankind 's history and also towards parts of history for which no composed records exist. In truth, Harari utilizes less science than Diamond.
