My dear, honorable senators, we live in a most opportune age. The great Caesar, as he was in fact great in many ways than just one, has fallen. It is only a matter of time before Rome faces retribution from enemies and citizens alike. The great people of Rome must either pick up the pieces of our broken government or face anarchy. My associate and i stand before you today to propose a new leader, one who will restore the glory of our beloved Rome.
Brutus spoke of Caesar as his friend who was too ambitious for his own good, while Antony questioned Brutus' words and made everyone else consider his words too. Brutus explains "As Caesar loved me, I weep for him." Brutus still considered Caesar a friend and is distraught by his death. But he also knew Caesar was too powerful for his own good and could only be stopped by one way. In Antony's speech, he exclaims "He was my friend, faithful and just to me."
Additionally, in 451 Attila attempted to conquer Roman Gaul (modern France), however he was defeated at the Battle of Catalanunian Plains. Although, by 452, he invaded Italy, devastating the Northern provinces . Additionally, the Huns played a large part in the eventual fall of Rome. It is known that Attila thrived on warfare and bloodshed, but these accounts of success show how he must have been more than a savage leader to control such a barbaric race. However, maybe Attila’s savagery does not necessarily make him a bad leader or that a good, savage leader is what the Huns needed to be
In the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar one of the main characters Caesar is killed in Scene 3 act 2.Then Brutus and Antony both give speeches about how bad they feel. Brutus gives a good speech by using all three of the rhetorical appeals to persuade the crowd to want to listen to what he say by using logos,ethos,pathos to his advantage. Brutus gives a better speech that draws the audience attention,Antony not as much. Therefor here are some very valid points on why Brutus’s speech used the Rhetorical Appeals better.
Within Antony’s speech to the Romans he uses anaphoric text to spike a whirl of rage towards Brutus. Repeatedly Antony states “Brutus is an honorable man” emphatically for the duration of his speech to contradict Brutus’s nobility ( March Antony, Lines 83,88,95 ). Before Antony begins his speech he is approached by the Romans with comments to not speak bad on Brutus’s name, which is why he utilized the anaphora to repeat that Brutus is an honorable man therefore allowing him to gain the Romans trust to speak. Antony does not say these lines truthfully but sarcastically to make the people of Rome feel furious against Brutus for taking Caesar to his mortal death.
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. The first example of how Antony uses logos in his speech is, He stated that, “I come not, friends to steal away your hearts. I am no orator as Brutus is.”
In his thoughtful and critical speech, Brutus, a senator of Rome who is friends with Caesar, utilizes rhetorical devices in order to persuade himself that killing Caesar is beneficial to the people. Toward the middle of the speech, Brutus uses Pathos in a metaphor to prove to himself “that lowliness is young ambition’s ladder” that but once one reaches the top of the ladder, he will “[scorn] the base degrees by which he did ascend” (II, i, 22 & 26-27). This metaphor is comparing humility to a ladder in which ambitious people use to climb to achieve great power. Although, once one reaches the power, the ladder is no longer any use for them and they will look down on the steps and people that had helped them get to this place in scornfulness.
While both Mark Antony and Brutus use ethos to depict important positions to the audience, Brutus' position captivates the audience and trumps that of Antony's. In his speech Mark Antony describes the friendship that he and Caesar shared, "He was my friend, faithful just to me," then continues and provides concession, "But Brutus says he is an honorable man. " This shows how Antony believes that he is more prone than Brutus to know and understand the character of Caesar. On the other hand Brutus takes on multiple positions by targeting multiple types of people, "Romans, Countrymen, and lovers! Hear me," to provide for more people in the audience to open up to what he is saying, and as a result gain more support.
antony wanted to Explain to the people of rome that he knew ceaser more that everyone ever could and because of that When someone else says a lie about Caesar he can stand up for him because of the truth they had for each other. because they were such best friends antony wanted to protect his friend even if he is dead. In Anthonys speech he showed a lot of emotions. the way I knew this was when he stated “ My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it comes back to me .And Brayden is a speech he is letting the audience see his emotions .
In politics, though, Roosevelt believed in fair treatment for all. He was especially against terrible labor conditions. As a New York governor, Roosevelt worked hard for the rights of laborers. When Roosevelt became president in 1901, he continued to strive for the rights of laborers.
Rhetorical Differences The reason Brutus failed to continue to have the citizens of Rome persuaded is simplified in this quote by Robert A Heinlein: “You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.” Brutus failed while Antony succeeded because Brutus relied on logic whereas Antony relied on the emotions of the people. Despite the fact that Antony did it for the wrong reasons, he obviously was more skilled in rhetoric than Brutus.
Brutus and Antony both give speeches at Julius Caesar's funeral. Both men use a variety of ethos, pathos and logos as well. Although both men have very good points, it is clear Antony's speech is more persuasive because he uses ethos, pathos, and logos to appeal to the crowd more than Brutus does. Antony's speech is also more efficiet because he shows emotion and sympathy for the plebeians this makes the plebeians feel as if Antony is one of them and understands how they feel.
Brutus and Antony speak in Caesar's funeral, they use ethos, pathos, and logos to get their point across. With the use of the pathos, logos, and ethos Brutus gets the attention of the commoners. He asks the commoners if what he is going to say is going to offend them, if it does he asks of them to leave there and they all tell Brutus no. Antony speaks before Brutus and gets his point across but fails at his point and just gets the crowd thinking. Brutus than uses his speech techniques to win over the commoner’s ears to listen to him.
Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare is a relatively historically accurate portrayal of Julius Caesar’s death and the aftermath. Written around 1599, Julius Caesar is based on true Roman History, although to some extent, it is apparent that Shakespeare added some details for literary flavor. Julius Caesar is considered to be a tragedy, one that receives much praise for its effective, enjoyable writing, going down in history as a world renowned classic. The characters Cassius, Brutus, and Antony can be described as having a “silver tongue” in the play. The overall theme of Julius Caesar is debatable, but what seems to be most evident is the idea that ordinary people are easily swayed by effective rhetoric; thus, they can be changed into a dangerous
Brutus, a loyal, murderous, and honorable friend to Julius Caesar, and Mark Antony, a well-loved server and friend to Caesar as well, both verbally battle it out through speech during Caesar's funeral to win during the hearts of Rome. As one puts reason over emotion, the other puts emotion over reason. Mark Antony's strong feelings for Caesar move the Romans deeply, placing much emphasis on how Brutus' guilt and stoicism for the death of Caesar is not enough. Caesar is spoken highly of and acknowledged as a friend by both Caesar and Brutus. As Brutus says, "As he was fortunate, I rejoice at it.
