“Death is not the greatest loss in life.The greatest loss is what dies while still alive.” This quote by 2pac relates to the tragedy of Julius Caesar.Caesar had so much potential and did many things for Rome. Caesar was murdered for the sole fact that others were afraid of a tyrant running Rome. I think that Caesar did not deserve to be murdered for the fact that he had a different view than other people. In (act II,scene 1,line 32-34) the text says “And therefore think him as a serpent’s egg which,hatched,would as his kind grow mischievous and kill him in the shell.” This text is saying that he is evil and should be killed.Conspirators should not have killed Caesar.Just because someone has different views and opinions that you don't like you can't murder them for that.Murder should not have been the answer to this situation.Especially to someone that had helped Rome and their military by conquering and expanding their empire.

This would result in them being common which they refused to let happen. Caesar was a hero and there is nothing more to it the people that wanted him gone were people drove by jealousy scared to lose their
He gave many good reasons for his actions, however he just had their heads on his side he didn’t get their emotions on his side though. He first used ethos when he said “Believe me for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor.” (III, ii,15-16). He was basically saying that he is an honorable man so the people shouldn’t be mad at him even though he committed murder. He then throws out a red haring by saying that “Had you rather Caesar were living, and die slaves, then that Caesar were dead to live as free men?”
In the greatness of ancient Rome, an evil act took place that destroyed the balance of power and changed the course of history. Even though some have praised Julius Caesar's assassination as a courageous attempt to protect the Republic, it is clear that it was a planned murderous act that called for legal consequences. Senators became irritated with Julius Caesar as he made changes and grew in power. On March 44 BCE, a group of conspirators assassinated Caesar within the Senate walls. The assassination of Julius Caesar was a determined act of violence that should be punished under the law, despite political motives and noble intentions.
Julius Caesar was one of Rome’s most successful and outstanding leaders. The question of whether or not he deserved to die is very simple. No, Julius Caesar did not deserve to be assassinated for the good of Rome because he was the good of Rome. Politically, militaristically, and economically he benefited Rome. Did the conspirators kill Caesar for the good of Rome or for their own personal motives?
Revolving around the actual events of the Roman king—Julius Caesar, the famous playwright, William Shakespeare wrote The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, which depicts the rise and fall of the short-lived king. Julius Caesar was an arrogant man, however, the common people of Rome had no real issue with him. His tribunes and workers under him, however, feared that he would rule terribly and unfairly. Out of their fear and jealousy, his tribunes and even Caesar’s friend, Brutus, murdered Caesar. While Brutus believed his death was a sacrifice for the betterment of Rome, evidence throughout the play shows that his death was in fact butchery.
In public, Caesar was the leader Rome had always wished for, a strong, valliant man that would let nothing in his way. Consequently, Caesar had a more vulnerable side to him where the reader would be able to see glimpses of throughout the play. Still, Caesar allowed his public self image to take priority in which would eventually lead to his death. Speaking historically, the great Julius Caesar was a people’s leader with a deep hunger for power in which he would do anything to
Oscar Wilde once said that “a thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.” This statement proved to be true in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Caesar was well loved by the people of Rome until, one day when, Cassius and Brutus decided he would be dangerous to Rome and killed him. In the play, we see a struggle between Brutus as he stands in the middle of the cross fire undecided of killing Caesar or not. We also see Cassius trying to convince Brutus to take action against Caesar later leading to Brutus trying to convince himself Caesar must die.
They would consider him a bad man because he would have done so many bad things if he were crowned at the ceremony. The conspirators make this plan so that Caesar does not get crowned. They were scared that he would become a dictator, if this were to happen he would have been a harsh and strict as a ruler. The conspirators were all ready to assassinate Caesar because they did not want the horrible dictatorship.
Is it justified to kill someone because they have gained too much power and are going to use it for the worse? Brutus has a very bad circumstance on his hands, he can kill Caesar and possibly be executed for his actions or he can let Caesar become king and watch Rome fall. There are many reasons why Brutus should and should not join the conspiracy. Brutus says, “I know no personal reason to spurn at him But for the general.” (II,i,11).
In Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, the person most responsible for the death of Julius Caesar is Cassius, he started the conspiracy and developed the plan of how to manipulate and convince Brutus to kill Caesar and lead Rome. While it may look like Brutus was the one responsible for his death, it was Cassius who made him think that he needed to that by slipping fake letters into his room. Cassius began the rebellion against Caesar, and then developed a plan to make Brutus think he need to kill Caesar and become the leader, and finally as well as the other conspirators, Cassius contributed to stabbing Caesar. TS 1: in the beginning of the story we are introduced to the conspirators, who are lead by Cassius and we discover that they are determined to destroy Caesar. In the beginning of the play Cassius is trying to convince Brutus that there is nothing special about Caesar, he is “Like a Colossus, and [they] petty men Walk under his huge legs”(I, II, 137).
Caesar could also be seen as villain and had to be killed in order to keep Rome and the republic safe. He was considered a villain because he took down the republic. Even though many people disliked Caesar and his ways, many people were also fond of Caesar such as Brutus who was still apart of the conspiracy. Brutus says “I would not, Cassius, yet I love him well.” (1.2.82)
In the play “Julius Caesar,” by William Shakespeare there are many great, well structured scenes. My personal favorite scene in the entire play is when Julius Caesar’s life is taken from him. There was an entire plot as to how the conspirators wanted to end Caesar’s life. In the play, the conspirators were the Roman Senators which was led by Cassius, Decimus Brutus, and Marcus Brutus. Julius Caesar was stabbed violently to his death on the Ides of March (March 15) at the Capitol building without him having a clue of what's going on.
