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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
The second major characteristic of a tragic hero is they must have a hamartia or tragic flaw, Brutus’s tragic flaw is having a noble personality and being extremely trusting because of it. Throughout the play, Brutus makes it a point to not deceive anyone. Everything he does, he does for the benefit of someone else. Caesar was murdered by him with only the best intentions of Rome in his mind, he lied to Portia because he knew she was already stressed out, and he was reluctant to join the conspirators because he cared for Caesar. In his funeral speech to Caesar, he says “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more” Brutus loves Rome enough to commit murder on a man that saved his life (III.ii.21-22).
Julius Caesar In the beginning it was all easy a new leader in in town an everything was fine. That is until the leader was killed by nobles. Brutus was a noble that was very honorable but also very gullible. Brutus’s best friend was the exact opposite of Brutus, which makes Brutus a tragedy hero.
Brutus is the tragic hero of the play Julius Caesar. Brutus, just like almost every other person ever born, had flaws about him, but that does not mean that he cannot be the tragic hero of Julius Caesar. Brutus was an honorable man. Brutus was the only conspirator that killed Caesar for the good of Rome. Brutus loved his country more than he loved his closest friend.
