I loved reading the play "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar" it was full of DRAMA. It was about friendship,loyalty, and betrayal that got the whole play going. Caesar was assassinated by his good friend Brutus; therefore that was betrayal of a friend. The reason Brutus and some fellow people killed him was because they believed that he was going to be a tryant, which was a person that takes control of everything, and would not want to share power. Each Person in the crime to kill Caesar stabbed him in the chest; therefore killing him.
Many people believe Cassius is the evil master mind behind the death of Julius Caesar, however every one blames Brutus, but it was Cassius. Cassius is responsible because he got everyone involved through manipulation. People cannot blame one man for the actual death of Caesar, but one can blame the man that set it up. A man such as Cassius is a man that leads to trouble. He takes pleasure
The Greek gods are very impressive and powerful, but are not regarded as heroes. Heroes are those who despite flaws and challenges, attempt to mend theirs and other’s mistakes at great personal expense because they feel that these mistakes are immoral. Hercules, despite killing his family through mad rage sent by Hera, redeems himself through his ability to feel guilt and do something about it. To purify his actions he would even commit suicide. But it is also through the love of his people and immense selflessness that he is made the greatest Greek hero.
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
Macbeth kills a lot of people, but apparently none of the right people, because in the end he ends up being murdered. Guilt is not what led him to his death, but greed is. Had Macbeth accepted that he could not have it all, he would have been alive and living a reasonably luxurious life with his Lady. The Macbeth’s were a greedy family and this, not guilt, forced them to live considerably short and complicated
At the same time they were very different, One was inverted and the other is extroverted, Their motivations differ as in power or respect. Brutus is an honorable man who respects the people of Rome and will do whatever it takes to keep the peace. When he realizes his best friend is becoming too powerful he decides to take matters into his own hands. Caesar’s Ambition had him killed by one of the most respectable
Brutus’s character was easy to understand. Brutus is not a virtuous character, even though he has strict moral standards. He killed Julius Caesar, where at one point they were great friends. This proves that he is unloyal to his friends. All the major characters in the play were hungry for power, even Brutus had to capitulate at the opportunity.
Julius Caesar once said, “I love the name of honor, more than I fear death”. When Caesar said that, he stated that there may be moments in a person's life where their honor is questioned, but in the end, only the person who would die to preserve their good name are truly worth honoring. Arthur Miller use The Crucible to portray John Proctor as an honorable man who made a few mistakes to have people question his honor. In The Crucible, John Proctor is shown to be a respectable, honest, and kind hearted man. There are many ways John Proctor is represented to be a respectable man throughout the play.
The first thing which I believe makes a hero and at the same time destroys potential heroes is the simple fact that heroes consistently choose to be good, and through their goodness they inspire others to become better. But here's the problem which limits most people, choice. We have the ability to choose if we want to be good or evil, but in reality, the majority of us choose neither, we choose to be mediocre, not evil, but not good. As well, because being moral requires effort it’s much easier
