Throughout Antony’s monologues, he is trying to nonchalantly convince the crowd of people of the conspirators wrong doings to Caesar. Antony uses many methods such as logos and pathos. Using logos, Antony makes the crowd remember exactly how Caesar was towards them and the way Caesar felt about them. Antony uses pathos to appeal to the crowds emotions about how the conspirators killed Caesar. Antony does this to get the crowd away from how Brutus left them, so he does that by using logos and pathos.

Antony uses many rhetorical devices in his speech from logos to pathos and many more but, the most effective rhetorical device in Antony's speech is logos because, in Antony's speech he pulls from the people's strings and emotions to get the people of Rome to get on his side and not Brutus’s side. Antony uses logos in many ways and uses it in the best possible way he can. Anthony's goal by using the rhetorical device logos, is that he is trying to make everyone one not on Brutus’s side about the reason why he killed caesar.

There are many different themes that can be identified in a novel;, however, one is usually more prominent than the others. The themes found within novels are not only confined to the original work but can be found throughout other literary works and societal values. When a theme has been identified within a novel, other connections can be made. Within Julius Caesar, the prominent theme is manipulation; a theme with connections around the world.
"The ides of March are come/Ay, Caesar, but not [yet] gone." (III.i.12) Sure enough, the Soothsayer was unmistaken, and on that very day (March 15), Julius Caesar would take his last breath. At this marking, the movement of the conspirators began in "liberating" Rome. However, they were not alone- with Mark Antony rising in fury for justice to Caesar. Each opposer gave a speech at the funeral of Caesar for their cause. Brutus in formality, attempted to convey his reasoning in executing the murder, as a representative of the conspirators. Using many rhetorical devices including pathos and logos, the crowd is swooned with his perception. Brutus's victory is short lived, because as soon as Mark Antony steps up, his tactics of persuasion,
William Shakespeare, a very famous writer, tells the story of Julius Caesar. In his play, Marc Antony delivers a powerful speech that uses many different rhetorical devices, appeals, and different styles of writing. Some of these include repetition, rhetorical questions, pathos, logos, ethos, and diction. These help enhance Marc Antony’s speech by persuading the audience towards considering that Caesar was a good man. Marc Antony gives his speech at Caesar’s funeral to the citizens of Rome. The purpose of his speech is to prove to the citizens that Brutus is wrong and Caesar shouldn’t have been killed. The tone of his speech is very ironic. It also gets very dramatic as he talks about Caesar being killed.
Mark Antony is trying to win over the people of Rome by his very effective use of rhetoric. In his speech, his overall point is to persuade the Roman citizens that Brutus’s claim of Caesar being ambitious is not true. Antony’s use of rhetorical devices such as a rhetorical question give the people a good message. When he is telling them that Caesar brought many captives to Rome, he asks, “Did this in Caesar seem ambitious” (3.2.18). Antony’s rhetorical question was very effective since he is making the people question Brutus’s claim. At the same time, Antony uses rhetoric to persuade the Romans. While Antony is questioning the citizens why they do not love Caesar anymore, he uses pathos. He asks, “what cause withholds you then, to mourn
In the novel, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by Shakespeare, after Brutus brutally executes Caesar in Act 3 Scene 2, Antony is allowed to give a speech to the people of Rome whom have seen witnessed this fatal tragedy in Scene 3. Antony uses anaphora, connotative diction and details throughout his speech to persuade the Romans to change their perspective of Caesar and Brutus. The way Antony speaks about both Caesar & Brutus are a dispute of what he is actually trying to announce to the Romans. At the end of his speech, Antony hopes to reach the Romans emotionally (pathos) by enraging them against Brutus’s false statements against Caesar.
In William Shakespeare’s tragedy Julius Caesar, Mark Antony uses rhetorical devices such as paralipsis, rhetorical questions, and verbal irony in his speech to the plebeians in order to plot them against the conspirators. During his speech to the plebians, Antony uses paralipsis in order to kindle curiosity and interest in the audience. Antony mentions to the plebians that he had Caesar’s will with him but tells them, “Have patience, gentle friends, I must not read it; It is not meet you know how much Caesar loved you” (3.2.152-153). By drawing attention to Caesar’s will, something Antony desperately wants to show the plebeians, but then dismissing the idea of reading it, Antony uses a type of verbal irony called paralipsis. Antony is aware that the contents
Brutus being the so called honorable man he is, says that Caesar was murdered for good noble reason, such as he was doing Rome a favor and showing his love for Rome. “ I say, that Brutus’ love to Caesar was no less than his. If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more”.(III. Ii. 19-22). Therefore Brutus does admit he loves Caesar however he care more about the well being of Rome. Antony being the dear friend of Caesar that he is, believes that all of this was done out of jealousy. Antony addresses how he feels about Caesar and reminds the people of Rome of they feel about him as well. “You all did love him once, not without cause: what cause withholds you then, to mourn for him? O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason. Bear with me; My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, And I must pause till it come back to me”. (III. ii. 103-108). This was said to bring sympathy towards Antony and to make the people of Rome realize their love they have for Caesar. Pathos played a big part in both speeches to drag in the commoners and make them feel the same thing that the two men were
Antony gave a powerful and moving speech in act three of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. The speech persuaded the crowd to shift their opinions of Caesar’s murder to Antony's own. Antony uses persuasive elements to make his own point of view the unanimous view of the entire crowd. Pathos is used to create a connection between the crowd and himself, Ethos to show his credibility in the matter and finally rhetorical questions to make the crowd think causing them to find reason within themselves. Antony's opening words were the most important in the whole speech.
William Shakespeare, in his tragedy Julius Caesar, uses the rhetorical devices of a rhetorical question, repetition of the word ambitious, and direct reference in Antony 's speech to instigate the plebeians and persuade them to rebel against the conspirators. Antony pulls on the pathos, ethos, and logos of the audience to get them to exile the conspirators. Shakespeare uses a rhetorical question in Antony’s speech to get the plebeians to notice the wrongdoings of the conspirators and excite them to rebel. Antony discusses the money that Caesar left to the countrymen, and with sarcasm he states, “Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?” (3.2.99). The act of giving away money is a selfless act and someone who is ambitious will not give charity. If Caesar was truly ambitious he would not give his money away to the common folk in his will.

Marcus Junius Brutus and Mark Antony both deliver speeches to justify the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE and both use Logos and Ethos to convince the Roman citizens to join their sides. Both sides deliver their speeches with vehemence and start by elucidating why Brutus killed Caesar to begin with, why Antony’s desire for revenge is justified, and what the future of Rome will be because of his death. Antony teases the citizens of Rome with the will of Caesar that he holds in hand and claims it will dishonor Brutus and the other conspirators and is also one of his vital uses of Ethos in his speech. Most of the citizens, if not all of them side with Antony and will most likely help him accede to a great title of power in the future and also betray Brutus because of what Antony has them believe, i.e. an ignoble assassin. Brutus and Antony 's speeches were both compelling, although Antony´s speech was more successful, but it is because he was able to manipulate the people of Rome with
