This is used to display his emotion. Antony states, “Bear with me; My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me” (3.2. 33-35). From this quote, you can tell that Antony believes killing Caesar was wrong and he wanted the citizens to think that as well. Even though he wanted to be the king, Caesar was still his friend.
Speeches: Brutus vs Antony Paraphrasing Brutus Speech: Main Ideas: Brutus talks about how the killing of Caesar is justified, because he wasn’t good for the romans. He also tells them why he had to kill Caesar, and why it was good for Rome to be rid of Caesar forevermore. Paraphrasing: Be patient till I speak my last word. Romans, listen to my cause, And be quiet, so you can hear. Believe me, I’m honorable, and respect me, so that you will believe.
Antony appeals to the citizens ' feelings right from the beginning. He does this simply, because he really does have strong feelings about the death of his friend Julius Caesar. He loved Caesar, he hates the conspirators, he wants
Antony wants to remind the Romans that he is credible for speaking of Caesar “that love my friend, and that they know full well, that gave me public leave to speak of him” (III.ii.215-216) Antony uses ethos after telling the Romans everything to convince them in being against that conspirators’ that he can speak of Caesar because he was a close friend of Caesar. Antony convinces the Romans to retribute the conspirators’ for what they have done “In every wound of Caesar that should move the stones of Rome to rise and mutiny” (III.ii.225-226) Antony wants revenge and is convincing the Romans to riot by using pathos. Antony wants the Romans to feel sorry about Caesar’s death “here was a Caesar! When comes such another?” (III.ii.248) Antony uses pathos here to make the Romans think and feel that there’s not going to be another Caesar and now Caesar is killed so it is a major loss to Rome. He also asks a rhetorical question to prove his point that there is only one
Brutus uses a certain phrase in his speech towards the end where he says, “I slew my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself, when it shall please my country to need my death.” (line #45-47) This phrase has double meaning because Brutus says this statement expecting the crowd to say they want him to live. Antony, however, has a double meaning phrase that is very different. His phrase is also towards the end of his speech. “Have patience, gentle friends, I must not read it. It is not meet you know how Caesar loved you.
Brutus was a man who honestly believed that by killing Julius Caesar he was doing right by the people of Rome. Brutus ' speech show that his loyalty is given first to Rome then to his close friends. He is justifying the death of Julius Caesar. He used ethics to persuade the audience that killing Caesar is the right thing to do because it
In the play of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Brutus and Mark Antony both write and deliver their own speeches after the assassination of Julius Caesar. Caesar was assassinated for the poor leader he seemed to be to the senators of Rome. Therefor Brutus delivered his speech first and loved Caesar but he loved Rome than he did Caesar. But in Mark Antony 's speech did not agree with Brutus because Antony loved Caesar more than he did Rome he also respected what Caesar was trying to do for Rome that others did not see. The speech of Mark Antony made the people of Rome feel frightened due to the reason he was assassinated.
Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision since his reasoning to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.
A great man, well respected by his peers, with friends in positions of power. Despite having killed Caesar, he had a valid excuse which he had the people believe. Having thought that killing Caesar was the only way to save Rome from tyranny, even though it was obviously not. When Markus Antony said, "This was the noblest Roman of them all. And say to all the world, 'This was a man!’” He gave an apt description of Brutus, wanting to do what is best for Rome, and yet failing to do so, and suffering both internally and externally from his choices; a true tragic
Brutus used pathos, and this is shown through him saying “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more”(III.ii.22-23). Brutus wanted to appeal to the Plebeians sense of patriotism. If he made them understand that he killed Caesar for the good of Rome, for the good of them, then they will understand that the assassination was needed and not done cold-heartedly out of hate. Brutus also used pathos by saying, “As I slew my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself when it shall please my country to need my death” (III.ii.46-48). Brutus wanted the Plebeians to know that he truly, truly loved Rome.
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."
Caesar is killed by conspirators who wanted freedom, liberty, and democracy. Though Caesar had ruled well, he wanted to be crowned and was ambitious. Caesar was killed because he was the one whose “abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power” (2.1.18, 19). But Brutus thought that “when he once attains the upmost round, he then unto the ladder turns his back” (2.1.24, 25). But Caesar loved the Romans according to what Antony spoke about Caesar 's death, “when that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept” (3.2.89).
