).” 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 knows that if he excites himself too much, he would fail and would be history. When the reader is presented with this information, they probably pity or feel sad for Colonel Freeleigh and just want to do anything to help this man. Colonel Freeleigh, a man that who was always up for adventure, who can’t do anything now, this is basically the end of life. He also exclaims this to the nurse by arguing, “It doesn’t matter if being so alive kills a man,” (Paragraph 35). By this quote, he just means that if to live, he has to die on the inside, he wouldn’t care so much doing so.
Having to choose between his loyalty to Rome and his loyalty to his close friend, Brutus shows what is more important to him by finally killing Caesar. In Act I, Brutus tells Cassius, “What means this shouting? I do fear the people/Choose Caesar for their king” (Shakespeare I.ii.85-86). Brutus fears that Caesar will be crowned king, which contradicts the values of the Roman Republic. And after some persuading from the conspirators and Cassius, Brutus finally joins in on the act to kill Caesar before he can do any damage to Rome.
Cassius knew and warned Brutus yet Brutus was being stubborn for better words and did not listen. Cassius was suicidal and didn’t exactly speak his opinion when it was needed or could of been heard. Cassius also killed one of his own men during war who was a coward! That shows major disloyalty with Cassius knowing that they shouldn’t of gone to Philippi in the first place. Julius Caesar would of made a great leader for Rome and showed loyalty and gave to his country in his will .
Brutus heard of this and made an army as well with Cassius. The two armies faced off, and things began to look bad for the conspirators. Cassius thought Titinius was captured and decided to kill himself, saying “Oh, coward that I am, to live so long, To see my best friend ta'en before my face!” Titinius then became sad when he saw Cassius dead and he killed himself too. So when Brutus saw the two of them dead, he asked the favor of his servant to hold the sword out so he could run onto it. Brutus died a tragic death because he made the tragic flaw of killing
A character in the play Julius Caesar written by William Shakespeare that I considered to be a tragic hero is Julius Caesar, I say he is a tragic hero because he faced downfalls, had flaws that lead to his downfall, and after he died many people felt guilt and pity against him, and he was looked up to by many people. Another reason why I say that Julius Caesar was a tragic hero is because he had flaws that lead to his downfall some of those flaws were being cocky, thinking he was untouchable, and not listening to the warnings that several people gave him about the ides of march. Since Julius Caesar did not listen to the warnings he was told about the ides of march he ended up getting murdered by the conspirators at the capitol. Another reason why I say that Julius Caesar was a tragic hero is because before or after he died I’m pretty sure he had a little guilt because he had to realize that he was warned several times and still chose to ignore the warnings that his wife gave him, the soothsayer gave him, and Artemidorus gave him, and he probably thought that if he would have just listened his death could of have been prevented and he could have still been alive, and
Eulogy for Okonkwo by Nowye this whole eulogy stuff bs and i don't know why we are doing this haha.a. When my father Okonkwo died, inside i felt despair and anger. With him being my father i obviously was very saddened to find out that he had hung himself. Though i am very saddened about our loss of Okonkwo i am sickened by the way he passed, He knew committing suicide in our town is very much against what we believe in here at Umuofia. Okonkwo knew this before he took his own life, which does not make much sense to me because he wanted to become leader of the clan for a very long time, but then took his life in such a dishonorable way.
Everyone has to face death. There are some people who fear death because it will take them away from their loved ones and rip them off what they have earned throughout their life, such as money, honor, and power. However, there are people claiming that they do not fear death since they have experienced many wonderful moments in their lifetime. Death sounds so terrifying because it means an end of someone’s life. Reading Epicurus’ “Letter to Menoeceus”, I will argue that a reason to not fear death is that we do not exist anymore after we die.
A tragic hero is a literary character who makes a judgement error that inevitably leads to his or her own destruction. Every Greek tragedy must have a tragic hero. In Sophocles's play, Antigone, that tragic hero is Creon. He possesses the tragic flaws of excessive pride and a oversized ego. This causes the tragic reversal that leads to his emotional ruin with not only himself but also his family.
Rather, they are the actions of an arrogant, ??????? man who had decided that he knew what was best for Rome. Brutus claimed that he was killing Caesar for the good of Rome. He was worried that Caesar would become a tyrannical ruler, and ruin Rome. However, he had very little proof that Caesar would actually become a tyrant.
He demonstrates once again that deep inside he didn’t wanted anything of this to happen because he was just looking for his own happiness. The creature having accomplish his goal, " But soon, he cried, with sad and solemn enthusiasm, I shall die, and what I now feel be no longer felt. Soon these burning miseries will be extinct. I shall ascend my funeral pile triumphantly, and exult in the agony of the torturing flames.”(Shelley,270
So, Mercutio decided to brawl with Tybalt. Mercutio’s ignorant decision to duel Tybalt led him to his own death and grief of friends and family. Mercutio was not aware of the consequences he would be facing because of his own decision. He announces in the text, “Ask for/me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I/am peppered, I warrant, for this world.
