).” This quote shows that Brutus is considering betraying his best friend. Then later in act two Brutus says “The only way is to kill Caesar. I have no personal reason to strike at him—only the best interest of the people.”(2.1.10) which shows that he has given in and is agreeing to kill Caesar for Rome. Once Brutus betrays his dear friend Caesar it causes all kinds of turmoil in Rome. One example of the turmoil it cause in Rome was it started a war between the conspirators and their followers and Antony and Octavius and his followers.
He tells the citizens "You all love him once not without cause what cause withholds you then to mourn for him" so they could reflect on their attitude towards his death. Using pathos in this way was very insightful because it reminds the citizens that they were the ones who elected him as emperor of Rome and they loved him and now they don't. Now they would feel guilty since they would feel like it was their fault that Caesar is dead because their love for him turned him emperor in the first
Caesar’s last words speak, “Et tu, Bruté?—Then fall, Caesar) Shakespeare (III.i.85). Seeing the person betrayal from Brutus stabbing him last, Caesar is distressed by the fact that even one of his closest friends tried to kill him. Although Brutus loves Caesar and is a close friend of his, he decides that Rome is more important and that Caesar is unsuitable to be a king. If Brutus cared about his personal loyalty more, he would have told Caesar that the conspirators were trying to kill him or at least he would not have killed him. However, that is not the case, and it is obvious that Brutus’s heart and concerns go to his beloved city, Rome.
The words that decided Rome Have you ever killed your best friend because you thought they were too ambitious? The tragedy of Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare takes place before the fall of Rome and tells a story about a group of noble senators that despise a monarchy. During this time a honorable senator named Cassius convinces his friend Brutus to form a conspiracy group to rebel Julius Caesar's absolute monarchy. Soon after they form a conspiracy group and assassinate Caesar they are confronted by the Roman people. Brutus’ and Antony’s speeches to the Roman people and how it influenced the rest of the play and characters.
This is directed towards some of the other assassins because he knew many of them had poor intentions. Cassius was part of the assassins only because he was jealous and feared that if Caesar became king he would be killed. Almost all the assassins killed Caesar because they did not like him. Brutus loved Caesar, but he loved Rome and its people
Public Figure in Julius Caesar Today we often do many things we would not normally do to look good in front of others. Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, is a story about how Julius Caesar, soon to be the ruler of Rome, was killed by Brutus. After the death of Caesar, war arose between Antony, and the people who are angry for Caesar’s death, and Brutus, and the other conspirators. A common theme throughout the story is that the desire to maintain a good public figure can lead to poor decisions, as seen by Julius Caesar, Cassius, and Brutus. Julius Caesar changes what he does to look good.
This appeals to the Plebeians emotion making them feel as if Brutus’ recognition of Caesar justifies his death. Last, Brutus uses logos to make the Plebeians question if they would “rather Caesar/ were living, and die all slaves, than that Caesar were/ dead, to live all freemen? (III.ii.22-24). This makes the Plebeians believe Brutus’ compassion towards the people made him kill Caesar. It justifies that Brutus only killed Caesar for the greater good of Rome.
In the play “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” by William Shakespeare. Manipulation was used by Cassius and Brutus to get what they want. In regards of the assassination of Julius Caesar I believe that he should not have been assassinated because there wasn’t enough against him. There was not enough evidence against Caesar for him to deserve to be killed. Mark Antony states that Julius Caesar loved Rome very much ‘He hath brought many captives home to Rome.” He also says, “When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept.” Those are two reasons why Caesar was not ambitions to the people of Rome.
Brutus was a gentle and honest man who killed caesar for the right reasons and not just so he would have a greater shot at becoming the king of rome. He would have rather watched himself die a thousand deaths than to watch his city in peril. Cassius helped talk Brutus into killing Caesar over jealousy. Brutus only went along with the idea because he knew that Caesar was an improper ruler for rome and its people. Brutus put his city and its people n front of him and that was his tragic flaw.
The main reasons are, Brutus could be a more terrifying leader there ever was, they might be killing one of the best leaders they could of had, what happens if there plan does not work, and the people of Rome are going to be mad. The reason that the conspiracy doesn't want Caesar to be king because they think he will be a terrible leader and they are jealous. Brutus should be happy that one of his friends is going to be king but instead he is jealous. Brutus is scared that Caesar is going to be a horrible king. How would he be any better though?
