Fiction is defined as written stories about people and events that are not real: literature that tells stories which are imagined by the writer. Nonfiction is however based on true facts and a real story. Works of nonfiction are meant to be factual. This means magazine articles, newspaper stories, encyclopedia entries, interviews and textbooks are all nonfiction. Like the article “Adler’s Psychoanalytic ideas on development”.
Even though books have similar, or this case, the same, topic, that does not guarantee you will get the same information from both books. Biographies include mostly facts and are researched by an author and checked to make sure that there is evidence to support everything they write. Facts can be proven true with evidence. Autobiographies contain facts too, but they are accounts of events in an individual’s life and even though they try to stick to the facts, often their own opinions are in the text too. An opinion is how a person feels about something.

Brutus is without a doubt the most noble character in this play. Nonetheless, his impeccable sense of morality also blindfolds him to other people’s sordid motives and makes him easy to be manipulated. Indeed, Brutus is easily manipulated by Cassius in Act 1, Scene 2. In hope to convince Brutus to join the conspirators, Cassius says “Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings” (1.2.150-152). As a result, Brutus starts to believes that it is his job to murder Caesar, as he says in Act 2, Scene 1: “It must be by his death: and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general” (2.1.14-16).
He continues by saying “as he was/ valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I/ slew him (3.2.27-28).” Through these words he shows the people what he is capable of doing and how conflicts must be resolved. In contrast, Antony is trying to make Brutus sound like an imposter and he constantly repeats the phrase “Brutus is an honorable man (3.2.91).” When he uses this phrase in such sentences it slowly starts to sound sarcastic or stretched. “He was my friend, faithful and just to me:/ But Brutus says he was ambitious;/And Brutus is an honourable man (3.2. ).” Antony continues his debate by giving examples of the great treasures Caesar has brought Rome.
