I did not kill Caesar for personal gain nor for revenge Antony. I loved Caesar and I love Rome but those loves are not equal. My love for Caesar was not as bright as my love for Rome. For Caesar was just a man a great and honourable man, but just a man, while Rome is a country with many honourable men and many women and children whose lives are just as important. Caesar was a friend to all, a great leader, a great warrior, and a man who cared for the people but he was still a man and like a man he had ambitions.
They would consider him a bad man because he would have done so many bad things if he were crowned at the ceremony. The conspirators make this plan so that Caesar does not get crowned. They were scared that he would become a dictator, if this were to happen he would have been a harsh and strict as a ruler. The conspirators were all ready to assassinate Caesar because they did not want the horrible dictatorship. Regardless of the personal motives, the decision was ultimately better for Rome than what it would have been with Caesar in ruling over Rome.
Julius Caesar was the first dictator of Rome, which left the people with a displeasing feeling of him. He came into rule, wanting to make life better for the people of Rome and give them better odds in the case of something bad happening. My prompt was to elaborate what led to Julius Caesar’s death and how it happened; also supposed to give a reason to why they thought he was killed. Julius Caesar died because of the way he tried to go about ruling Rome; the council did not agree with the way that Caesar was trying to rule and they disagreed with him on more than one occasion, because he had political experience before he became the dictator of Rome. To begin, Julius Caesar was the first dictator in Roman history,causing a lot of problems with the council and the people.
Describe Whether Caesar Was Portrayed As A "Model Politician" Or A Selfish Dictator From the three prescribed readings it can be said that Julius Caesar was a selfish dictator. What was contained in the reading indicated that Julius Caesar is a man that has hunger for power, a self-centered man, and unwavering dictator. And since even the entire people were no longer pleased with present conditions, they rebelled at his tyranny and would like to defend their liberty . It is crystal clear in all the three documents that Julius Caesar was very selfish who only care about himself and his personal goals. In other words in all the three accounts the message is clear that the view of Julius Caesar was not that of a fair and just politician .Assuming he where, the plan to kill him would not have been to assassinate him near Pompey statue, and because he moved the Roman into war across the Rubicon River in North Italy.
Although he was loved by his citizens, his political views differed from the rest. In order to get rid of Julius they all plan an assassination on him, including his best friend Brutus. After they kill Julius Octavius teams up with Antony and they go to war with Cassius Comedy/Tragedy: Julius Caesar is a tragedy because the events that take place. A beloved military leader by his country. Unaware about the affairs going on inside the country, they plot to get rid of Julius Caesar.
In every campaign and political position held by Caesar, he gained leverage in various ways, especially through crucial political alliances, his cunning, people-pleasing abilities, and his immense sense of determination. First of all, Julius Caesar formed critical alliances with whoever need be in order to obtain power. One alliance of his that predominantly stands out is known as “The First Triumvirate.” Caesar aligned himself with Pompey and Crassus, two strong political front-runners in 60 BCE, in order to rise to be consul. Altogether, they replaced their own enemies with newly elected officials, therefore creating a machine that couldn’t be stopped. With the newly established representatives, it was truly impossible to cap Caesar’s growing power.
Cassius’s jealousy leads him to tell people to go against Caesar which obviously leads to Caesar's assassination. As acting as a jealous child, one may tend to speak bad about those who are against them, which is what Cassius gossips with Casca, “Let it be who it is. For Romans now / Have thews and limbs / like to their ancestors, / But—woe the while!—our fathers' minds are dead, / And we are governed with our mothers' spirits. / Our yoke and sufferance show us womanish.” (I, iii, 1-85) Cassius talks down Romans by comparing mothers and Romans saying that mothers have no backbone and rarely make change or speak up just like Romans when it comes to Caesar being elected as king. Cassius envies Caesar because even though both are equal, Caesar is more respected and honored because Caesar had defeated Pompey.
They might conclude as Caesar being shown as a bad leader only by Cassius’ explanation. Just because Cassius disliked him does not mean he would not be truthful about Caesar’s characteristics. Cassius is the one who talked about Caesar’s weaknesses to Brutus. He also wrote letters to Brutus from other people to show how Caesar is imperfect to be a leader.Others might support Caesar by saying he loved all the citizens based on the will. Whenever Marc Antony speaks at the funeral he shows the plebeians Caesar’s will.
Although many loved Caesar he also has people to hate him also. They did not want him to be the King of Rome therefore, they planned his assassination. Some of the people that were not satisfy with him become king were Cassius and Brutus even though at one point in their life they were
In the play Julius Caesar created by William Shakespeare Julius Caesar is becoming the ruler of Rome. However there are some people who are called conspirators that do not want him to be crowned ruler and want him to be over thrown. So the conspirators try to convince others to help them overthrow Caesar. In order to do this they use multiple tactics and make many attempts to persuade everyone to join them, for example Cassius fabricates a petition, Cassius makes Brutus believe he is more important then he actually is, Cassius leaves a letter in Brutus's room telling him that he has to recognize certain features about himself, and Brutus assures the Plebeians that some things are necessary. When Cassius creates the fake petition he makes it seem as though there are many angry Roman citizens who want Caesar removed from the thrown.
