Some people argue that Julius Caesar was the greatest military general and politician of all time; however, I disagree. In my opinion, Caesar was a forceful dictator who only cared about his own wealth and power, punished innocent citizens, and was greedy for supporters. Julius Caesar just wanted himself to be satisfied, even if it was at the expense of the Roman republic. He also punished all of the innocent citizens that just wanted to sustain the old laws and traditions of the Roman republic. Another reason he is not an astonishing leader is that he increased the number of senators so that more people would support him.
The story of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare has been a story passed down to generation to generation. The story is centered on betrayals and lies that affect every character. However, Brutus is neither a betrayer nor a cheater. In fact, he is patriot, because he put Rome above himself. However, this book has been out for a long time and some say killing Caesar in the name of Rome is a betrayal.
One of the two emperors had always enjoyed seniority over the other. However, the accession of Arcadius and Honorius is widely seen as the division of the Roman Empire into two completely separate parts. Arcadius is therefore often known as the first 'Byzantine' ruler. At his accession Honorius was only twelve years old and Theodosius had appointed a guardian to watch over the empire for him and that guardian was Stilicho. Stilicho was half Vandal, half Roman, and married to the emperor's cousin Serena.
This is directed towards some of the other assassins because he knew many of them had poor intentions. Cassius was part of the assassins only because he was jealous and feared that if Caesar became king he would be killed. Almost all the assassins killed Caesar because they did not like him. Brutus loved Caesar, but he loved Rome and its people
People who are generally cocky and full of themselve tend to have a very horrible death and story that leads up to it. Oedipus is the king of Thebes, who can be full of himself sometimes, but it doesn't affect him in life. He has saved his city before by solving the riddle of the sphinx and he is trying to save it once again by finding out who killed the old king of Thebes, Laius. He has a way of finding out who killed him, but it to only lead to his tragic downfall. Many people think that it was hubris that caused his death but I just don't think that hubris is a logical explanation.
He is in high school, and around 16 years old. He has many friends in his class, but during the book, but his friendships change dramatically. In the beginning, he was the antagonist because he was so self-centered and rude to his classmates. He was very disrespectful to his elders and thought that he could get whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted because his Dad was rich. He was then turned in to Beast and told to that
Gilgamesh was born a king, but Joseph had dreams of someday being a leader and having people bow at his feet. When Joseph told these dreams to his father and brothers this made them hate him all the more. After Joseph was sold his master saw the he was loyal and trust worthy so Joseph was put in charge of the house. The master’s wife tried to seduce Joseph, and when he did not sleep with her she lied and said that he seduced her. He was locked up or knocked down from his high status just as Enkidu was bought in to bring Gilgamesh down from his high cocky status.
These acts were being permitted because people were just not speaking up and letting it happen. The Nazis and Hitler wanted more than what they had so they took from people. The Jews were hated because people are believing things that were not true. It was not just then it also happening now the Holocaust may have been a big event but Silent Majority, Discrimination, and Hate has not changed at all. The Nazi’s of Germany were greedy because they believed Jewish people were the reason they did not have money.
Throughout this semester, I have made many great achievements and improved my writing skills drastically. This class has helped me improve my writing skills with grammar and methods for writing. I have also learned what I need to improve on, which includes effectively using quotes and writing narrative pieces. Many of the assignments in this portfolio are argumentative; I believe this style of writing is best for me. Overall, these assignments are the best I have written this semester.
Brutus was a gentle and honest man who killed caesar for the right reasons and not just so he would have a greater shot at becoming the king of rome. He would have rather watched himself die a thousand deaths than to watch his city in peril. Cassius helped talk Brutus into killing Caesar over jealousy. Brutus only went along with the idea because he knew that Caesar was an improper ruler for rome and its people. Brutus put his city and its people n front of him and that was his tragic flaw.
