Flaws of a Tragic Hero! Honor can be looked upon in different ways.

Antony contrasts from Brutus, which helps Brutus’ development as a tragic hero and advances the plot.
Is a good deed still a good deed when looked at from an ice cold eye? Was it ever really a good deed at all? It’s all about perspective. In the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, ethos, pathos, and logos is used to show both sides of a deed that was good in one eye and cold in the other.

Imagine what it would be like to be betrayed by the people you trust most. Imagine literally being “stabbed in the back” by your closest friends. In Shakespeare’s infamous play Julius Caesar, this indeed does happen; a man by the name of Julius Caesar is assassinated by some of his closest companions. Julius Caesar was a well-renowned leader in real life and in the play. Any ideal leader has key qualities such as being very intelligent, takes charge whenever possible, and is passionate for their country.
Samantha Durand 27 October 2015 Dunipace 4th Julius Caesar Essay Brutus is the Tragic Hero William Shakespeare wrote “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” to tell the story of the tragedy that happened to him. When Caesar was going to become king, his own friends turned into conspirators against him.

Do you ever wish you could go back in time to change all those wrong choices you made? Unfortunately, we can’t undo what we have already done, but accepting what you have done wrong will help you do the right. Aristotle states “One must discover the truth of his wrong choice and accept responsibility for his actions” (Aristotle's Tragic Terms). In order for someone to be a tragic hero they must understand what their mistake was. This closely relates to Marcus Brutus in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar.
Marcus Brutus is a man that thinks highly of himself, in a respectable manner. His ancestors before him, Aeneas, the founder of Rome, carried Caesar’s father out of burning city Troy. Cassius says that he also saved Caesar for when he was drowning in the raging river (Shakespeare 1. 1. 112-115).
I believe that within the book Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare the most admirable character would be Brutus, while a virtuous man whose dedication to Rome outweighs his loyalty to Caesar, is a person marked by complexities. He is filled with doubt and extremely troubled over the choice, to kill Caesar who is a beloved friend for the sake of his country.
Idealistic Brutus misplaces his trust on his army and the conspirators. Manipulated, Brutus joins into the conspiracy without knowing the hidden intentions. By the time conspirators had brief meeting at Brutus’s house before the plan, Brutus addresses that “they are all welcome” (2.1.97) and shakes hands with the conspirators without any doubt. He misplaces his trust on the conspirators thinking that everyone share same purpose and intention. After the death of Caesar and Antony’s funeral speech, Brutus and Cassius run away from Rome and set up a camp where they can fight against the army of Antony.
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.
Do you think brutus is a tragic hero? Well he is since he has a strong relationship with Caesar, his relationship with the citizens of rome is greater. For example,” This was the noblest roman of them all the conspirators, except him did that they did out of jealousy of Caesar; Only he, in general -honest thought and common good to all, made one of them His life was gentle, and the elements so mix'd in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world,” This was a man!” This quote from act 5 shows how he was considered a tragic hero by anthony which was Caesar’s son.
