Can stabbing a person ever really be honorable? Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare represents this dilemma when Brutus and a group of conspirators decide to murder Julius Caesar to save Rome. As the rest of the play progresses the conspirators begin to realize that Rome will not realize what their side of the story was. Mark Antony took up the call to shut the conspirators down and persuade the people that Julius Caesar should not have been killed. In Julius Caesar by William Shakespear, Antony turns the crowd against Brutus and the other conspirators by using reputation to discredit them and rhetorical questions for the people to consider how Ceasar really lived his life.

Machiavelli’s brutish method to win wars leads to the downfall of his own population which More evades.

Machiavelli wrote about a fictitious prince, describing how he is a terrible being who has no respect for people who have a lower status than him. He is described as being selfish and untrustworthy. His writing about this prince was supposed to replicate princes and kings that were ruling and open he reader’s eyes to real issues occuring. In Document 1 there is an excerpt from The Prince, written by Machiavelli, telling about how terrible the Prince of England. Document 1 states, “For all men in general this observation may be made: they are ungrateful, fickle, and deceitful, eager to avoid dangers, and avid for gain, and while you are useful to them they are all with you, but when it [danger] approaches they turn on you”.
Alongside Achilles’ responsibility for Patroclus’ fate, Hector also holds accountable too because in book 16, Hector talks to Patroclus about entering into the Trojan War; however, Patroclus fell gullible to Hector’s actions, and Hector turned out to be deceiving by stabbing him (being Patroclus) in the bowel and eventually killing him. Hector, and Achilles influenced fate among mortals, like Patroclus, so they could protect themselves until the end when Achilles frightens Hector with the dramatic irony, which seals his fate too. This paragraph defined the shape, which fate takes in the lives of other by peer influence created by characters who were considered high strength warriors followed by the backfiring of trying to keep them self alive. (This being Hector’s
Convinces brutus a friend of caesar’s to turn on him in fear of a republic. The conspirators killed caesar before the shocked senators and spectators. In brutus speech he claims that he didn 't love cesar any less by killing him he just loved rome more. Brutus begins building his credibility to the roman people by using rhetorical appeals that persuade the audience to believe that he did the right thing by killing caesar. His use of logical appeals weakened his credibility because it seemed like he was putting the blame on other people instead of taking responsibility for his own actions.
Caesars fatal death by his strong governing peers may have been because Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and this is shown consistently through his life span in the play. Since Caesar has a strong political following and position in Rome’s state, he has much arrogance in his personality and this arrogance is his hamartia which has a fatal ending to his life. If Caesar was more cautious about how he treated other people with little respect then maybe his arrogance would not have been hamartia. When the soothsayer warned Caesar about the Ides of March, if Caesar was not ignorant and arrogant then he would’ve believed the soothsayer which could of saved his life. With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death.
Following this major feat was the beginning of Caesar’s ten-year dictatorship that the tyrant had always desired. The throne of Rome and the crowning of king was not far within the eye sight of the ambitious Julius Caesar. It was this point that the numerous authors have accounted for the dictator’s assassination. These writers claim that the fear of monarchy, jealousy within the senate, and a threat to the Roman republic government led to the assassination of Julius Caesar. Rome, a strong and conquering nation had much of their support in a republic form of government to keep them from a king.
Two different characters writing two different speech’s referring to Caesar’s death, Marcus Brutus and Mark Antony. Marcus Brutus a politician of the Roman Republic, best known for taking a leading role in the assassination of Julius Caesar. Brutus is known to be Julius Caesar 's Best friend also considered as his brother, but he ends up stabbing him and becoming one of the conspirators. However his decision wasn’t easy, he choose between his loyalty to the Roman republic and his loyalty to Caesar. Mark Antony, the exact opposite, a good friend of Julius Caesar who later on launches himself into a major position of power in Rome.
These similarities matter because they were written at different times but represent the same conflict with people that desperately want power and get it. As has been stated many times, after both characters got power they killed. Jack killing Piggy and Simon and Cassius convincing the senate to kill Julius Caesar. Before they had power they would not have been able to kill at all. This matters because its sort of like a warning to all who seek power and it can be applied to pretty much all times since “Julius Caesar” takes place in ancient Rome and “Lord of the Flies” takes place right around the end of the second world war.
