He talks about the authority of Mr. Gore and about his faithfulness to the colonel. Fredrick Douglass also used ethos when he talks about how he never said anything negative about his owner. This is ethos because it relates to ethics and
After all, I'm sure he had other options for attempting to prevent Caesar from becoming king. If we give it some thought, Brutus initially rejects the offer to kill Caesar, and it wasn't until Cassius started faking letters and spreading false information about Caesar that he agreed to take part in the murder. If it weren't for Cassius, Brutus might never have actually killed Caesar. I think Brutus was a patriot and a traitor.
Just take a moment, my good men and think about this. Why would he commit such an act that, as you know, would run the risk of the honor of him and his family being stripped from him, his family's lives threatened, the name of Brutus to go down in history with shame, if there was not such an honorable, necessary and worthy cause? Brutus's heart truly lies with the people of Rome. He is merciful, intelligent, perceptive and willing to do what's right, all of which are vital traits for one who is to replace the great Caesar and bring righteousness and honor back to this great nation. Even the great Caesar recognized Brutus’s greatness as he held Caesar in unimaginable high regards.
So if he wants Rome to be safe, and have a good leader, Brutus has to kill him, he has to get things done soon and fast. So finally, I believe that Caesar is to dangerous to be the person in charge of everything here. , and he doesn’t care about anyone, but himself. Brutus has the respect and honor to become the leader of Rome. Having Brutus King or leader, Rome would be much safer and calm knowing that they all have a good person who’s trustworthy and clever looking after
Initially, after reading the story, I was confused on whether or not Brutus counted as a betrayer or a patriot and it seemed almost impossible to find out, but as I thought more on it, I discovered he had limited time before Caesar was officially crowned so he had limited options. However, I believe Brutus was a patriot because instead of joining the conspiracy right away when he is offered the chance by Cassius, he refuses because he does not think Caesar deserves something so harsh. Once Cassius plants the fake notes from Rome Brutus decides to kill Caesar because he doesn’t want the people becoming Caesars slaves. So instead of wanting to kill Caesar out of jealousy like Cassius, he just wanted to kill him in order for him not to turn the people of Rome into slaves. Brutus may also seem like a traitor because he chooses to die rather than be captured and
Brutus wants to kill Caesar because Caesar wants to be crowned king, and is trying to see if evil can come from good. They was thinking that Caesar was going to abuse his power when they separate it from compassion. Caesar let his emotions get the better of his reason. Caesar is that type to turn his back on his supporters and reaches for the skies while scorning those who helped him get where he is now. Caesar trying to avoid what the gods want to happen.
/ I would not, Cassius, yet I love him well.” (1.2.85-86, 89). Brutus explains his fears that Caesar may love power more than Rome. Brutus loves Caesar, but would not allow him to rise to power and then turn his back on the people of Rome. What Brutus has said really goes to further prove how honorable
It's a bad idea for Brutus to join the conspiracy. What if the plan doesn't go how they want it to go? If Caesar found out that they were planning on killing him, he would probably kill all of them first. Brutus is already a close friend of Caesar's why put his life on the line.
A betrayer, Brutus, killed his best friend, Julius, to be considered a patriot by his city, but did not think logically about how to acquire the title. Julius could not believe his best friend had stabbed him. This shows that the trust between Brutus and Julius had been broken. Julius told Brutus, “Et tu Brute?” meaning, “and you too Brutus?”
There are two characters in the play who killed Caesar for different purposes: one for the good of himself, one for the good of others. Shakespeare criticized selfish people in society by comparing Brutus with Cassius. Cassius murdered Caesar for his own personal benefit; he didn’t consider the happiness of the citizens and brought a destructive civil war. On the other hand, Brutus is a noble man; he considered the happiness of others and tried to save Rome from being ruled by a dictator. According to the play, we should have more concern on others and consider the group
For Brutus to align himself with a conspiracy is a necessary part of keeping Rome an ideal republic. Whether or not Cassius is the ideal conspirator is another story. Bloodshed is an inevitable part of life. When dictators try and change an ideal republic to a dictatorship, something drastic has to be done to keep the republic ideal. Brutus did what he had to do.
Brutus betrayed Caesar by deceiving him with false loyalty until he had a chance to kill the monarch, thus breaking the sacred vow of trust that came with their friendship. To begin, some may argue that Brutus killed Caesar for Rome’s well-being. In theory, this could have been true. Brutus may have thought that killing a potentially tyrannical dictator could have been a good thing for Rome. However, in this thinking process, Brutus should have come to the conclusion that killing a king would lead to an all-out war, which it did.
Brutus was a good friend to Caesar in the beginning, but ended up being neither dependable nor honest. Brutus never said he had anything to hold against Caesar. His intentions for killing Caesar seemed good to himself and the conspirators at the time. Even though Brutus was Caesar’s friend, he only agreed to kill him for the good of Rome. As he says so in the play, “It must be by his death, and for my part I know no personal cause to spurn at him but for the general.”
My friend Brutus, We have known each other for many years, and as your friend, I feel as though I have a duty to Rome to contact you about the issue at hand. We should not kill Caesar. Caesar has made many mistakes by making his law then decided to break it, gave Gaul's places in the senate-house, and even went against the state by marching on Rome. Though Cassius has convinced you to kill Caesar, I plead with you to reconsider. Killing Caesar is not what the people want, but is what the conspirators are tricking you into thinking.
