Conversely, the senator mislead his king into believing that he could be trusted.
Betrayal. I never experienced such disrespect until now. The people of Rome should feel the same about what they did to Julius Caesar; they should be disgusted and mad at Brutus, and the people who helped him. Caesar would have been a great king by now if they didn’t revolt against him, blame Brutus! I as a follower of Caesar, maddened because of the followers of Brutus.

Brutus ' speech is a useless and ineffective from start to finish. Approaching the citizens as intelligent scholars, when in fact, the mob consists of nothing but illiterate commoners, who cannot figure out for themselves what is right from what is wrong, was Brutus ' fatal mistake. Throughout the duration of the speech, Brutus mentions how he loves Caesar and how no one has more remorse for the death of Caesar than himself.

Sebastian Pennett Bryan Braint (Alix, Section 8) English 160 A October 3rd, 2014 Critical Essay Part One: Aaron Vs. Cassius In the play Julius Caesar and Titus Andronicus there are two very similar characters in both plays, yet at the same time surprisingly different. Aaron in Titus Andronicus is considered the puppeteer of the play, he is known for his conniving manipulation and his downright hatred for humanity. Throughout the play Aaron destroys many lives in hopes of desolating Rome and all of its citizens as a form of vengeance. However in Julius Caesar, Cassius is known for his manipulation and love for Rome, who would do anything to protect Rome. Cassius ends up taking advantage of Brutus and his power and ends up convincing Brutus
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.
In the speech that he gave after Caesar’s death, he managed to persuade the crowd into hating the conspirators. Antony used reverse psychology by referring to the conspirators as “honorable men,” (3.2.82-117) when he meant the opposite. He took his fate into his own hands and made sure that the conspirators paid for what they did. Cassius also has an internal locus of control because when he was trying to persuade Brutus into joining the conspiracy he concludes that, “ Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” (1.2.146-148) Cassius is telling Brutus that they have to do something to stop Caesar from being king and that they control their own fate.
The conspirators took matters into their own hands by killing Caesar so his powers decreased. The conspiracy contained many important individuals including Marcus Brutus and Cassius Longinus. Cassius got Brutus’s assistance by persuading him to join. At the end of William Shakespeare 's play “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” Caesar was killed by the conspirators at the Senate and later on some of the conspirators died. Although Caesar’s death is very controversial, this event was going to be necessary for the future.
