An effective leader is one who is experienced, determined, and likable. Although Cassius was never officially crowned king of Rome, killing Caesar would result in him gaining power. Caesar was very liked and honored in Rome. Cassius saw this as a threat, and he wanted to take Caesar down before it was too late. Cassius was so set on killing Caesar he recruited Brutus to help set up Caesar.
Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic. Brutus loves caesar but doesn't want him to become king. Brutus doesn't have a personal reason to kill Caesar but for the good of Rome he has to. The country of rome would fall to Caesar if he became king because he is corrupt. Brutus loves Caesar but knows he has to kill him for the good of rome.
Always, I think Mark Antony speech is better than Brutus’s because Antony actually put effort into his speech about Caesar when Brutus was one of the persons who killed Caesar. So that shows that Brutus really didn’t care about Caesar. “Men have become brutish beasts and lost their reason.” The quote is saying that men have lost their reason after Caesar’s death because people actually cared about him
Brutus was a close friend to Caesar, and he didn’t kill Caesar because he didn’t like him. He did love Caesar, but his love for Rome was stronger and he didn’t want Caesar to ruin the great city he had even said “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves.” (III.ii). Brutus thought that Caesar was too ambitious and that would have ruined Rome, so he wanted the best for the citizens of Rome and killed Julius Caesar. However, Brutus wasn’t the only part of the killing of Caesar he was an accomplice along with Cassius and Casca, so he had some people who felt the same as Brutus.
Brutus' decision to stab Caesar in the back wasn't an easy one. He has to choose between his loyalty to the Roman Republic and his loyalty to his friend. Seems like he could be heading toward tyrant status. Brutus says he killed Caesar because he loved Rome more than he loved Caesar. Based on examples in The Tragedy of Julius
1. 61-63.) The idea of killing his best friend, Caesar, for what Cassius portrayed as the good of the republic is an absolute shock to Brutus. He can not pinpoint how he feels about these thoughts and and the actions that this would demand. It is the effect, the insomnia and how upset his thoughts are causing him to be that truly displays the struggle of personal ethics as
Admittedly, Caesar could be considered the tragic hero due to his realization of his wrongdoings when he sees Brutus after being stabbed. However, Caesar never fully accepted responsibility for his actions before he died, unlike Brutus. Brutus’s dying words are, “Caesar, now be still. I killed thee with half so good a will (V.v.50-51).” These words confirm that Brutus recognizes that killing Caesar wasn’t the best course of action. Within these final words, we also see Brutus’s regret for what
This is one of Marc Antony's strongest characteristics as it helps him triumph in war, rally the Romans, earn respect, and become a leader of Rome. One of the best examples we see of Antony's quick thinking is after Caesar dies. Brutus leaves to speak to the other Roman citizens, and leaves Antony to talk to the citizens after Brutus convinces them that, "I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him." Act III, Scene II of Julius Caesar. He convinces them that killing Caesar was the best .
Brutus was very manipulative character. It’s Brutus’s manipulative personality that caused many problems in Rome. If it wasn’t for Brutus, the conspirators would have never murdered Caesar. Brutus was also very gullible. For instance, Cassius threw forged letters through Brutus’s window, pretending to be the townspeople, stating they wanted Caesar dead.
More than just once does Cassius express his ill will towards Caesar’s position of influence over Rome and its people. Cassius complains, “Ye gods, it doth amaze me/ A man of such a feeble temper should / So get the start of the majestic world / And bear the palm alone” (I.ii.130-133). Cassius is aware of Caesar’s weaknesses and questions the people yet again as to why Caesar deserves the power he holds. If a man such as Caesar has the ability to rule a city, Cassius wonders why that same man cannot even take care of himself, comparing Caesar to a sick girl. Cassius
Brutus killed Caesar for personal reasons rather than for the emolument of Rome. Caesar was a good man that cared about Rome and did what he could for the people. The senators and Brutus were jealous that Caesar was so well liked. This envy lead to malice toward Caesar that ended with his downfall. How could someone that cared so much for the people of Rome have such ill intent
Brutus was a great and close friend of Julius Caesar, but Cassius took advantage of Brutus because he was jealous of Julius. Brutus was a patriot and just wanted to do the right thing for Rome and make sure Julius was not going to become king. Brutus was a truthful man and wanted to know what the people thought about Julius. So Cassius tried to bribe Brutus with fake letters from the people, and decided he would team with the other senators and kill Julius Caesar for the good of Rome. For example, in his speech at Julius 's funeral he said "Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more."
