One of them is Brutus could be tracked down and executed for killing Caesar. Though it would help the people of Rome Brutus doesn't want to die because of his actions. All of Caesar's guards would hunt down Brutus and assassinate him for killing who they thought was a great
Is there anyone a traitor that doesn’t love his country? If anyone here, speak up, but I have offended him, please speak up. Paragraph - Antony’s Speech Explain what makes Marc Antony’s speech so effective. His speech was so effective because instead of just coming out and blaming the conspirators for everything, he slowly eases into his purpose of his speech.
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.
In the quote, “Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more”. Brutus explains that he loved Caesar to his fullest and cared for him deeply, but Rome was more important and loved to him than Caesar would ever be. This goes to show that Brutus loved Rome and people so much that he was will to kill Caesar to make his people happy. Brutus also show Betrayal from saying that Caesar was ambitious which was one of the reasons that he kill or betrayed Caesar. In the Brutus speech he quotes, “ I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him”.
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar William Shakespeare “Honorable men…” Marc Antony. After Caesar’s murder, the conspirators gather with Marc Antony, Caesar’s right hand man and best friend, to discuss what they want to do to justify their killing of Julius Caesar. They decide to let their leader, the first to stab Caesar in the back, Brutus speech at the funeral and gain the appeal of the people of Rome so they won’t be killed just like Julius Caesar. They also allow Marc Antony to speak at the funeral because the conspirators believe that Marc Antony is on their side.
The conspirators were successful in killing Caesar for the “Good of Rome”. In the play A Tragedy of Julius Caesar a conspiracy is formed to kill Caesar because many think he is getting too ambitious. In the conspiracy people were turning against other people; sides were being taken. Although Antony stays loyal to Caesar, he causes a great deal of damage to the city of Rome due to the things he decided to say to the common people. Many lives were taken, not just Caesar’s, but many of the conspirators lives as well.
Caesar most likely would have become one of the most prosperous leaders of Rome. If Antony was also killed like Cassius wanted I believe Cassius would have started a rise to power that would lead to everything he said he was trying to prevent. Overall Cassius did more bad then good he manipulated his friends, allies he killed someone he said he loved, he lied to get revenge, and he killed out of greed. Brutus said he asked for money from Cassius to pay for his troops when you are about to go to war you do not help pay for an allies troops when they need it. You also don’t lash out and say you are better than your ally when you should be planning for the pressing battle.
Antony’s Speech Using Rhetorical Appeals In William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, after Caesar’s death, the Romans are conflicted about what should be done. After Brutus’ speech the Romans are ready to crown Brutus king and be on the conspirators’ side. Though Brutus then leaves the crowd while Antony delivers his speech, the crowd realizes what should be done of Caesar’s murder and Antony prevents the conspirators from getting away with the murder of Caesar.
The crowd are on board until Marc Anthony speaks out in defense of Caesar, revealing Caesar’s will that granted part of his wealth to the Roman people. The crowd rallies against the conspirators and drive them out of Rome. Brutus and Cassius retreat to Sardis and plan to fight together against a newly formed triumvirate between Marc Anthony, Octavius, and Lepidus. Brutus and Cassius have a personal quarrel after finding out that Cassius has been taking bribes. Brutus and Cassius reconcile, after Brutus tells Cassius that his wife Portia committed suicide following their retreat from Rome.
Rhetorical Differences The reason Brutus failed to continue to have the citizens of Rome persuaded is simplified in this quote by Robert A Heinlein: “You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.” Brutus failed while Antony succeeded because Brutus relied on logic whereas Antony relied on the emotions of the people. Despite the fact that Antony did it for the wrong reasons, he obviously was more skilled in rhetoric than Brutus.
Mark Antony Over Marcus Brutus One can see as they read through Mark Antony’s and Marcus Brutus’ speeches, that they left a major effect on the crowd at Julius Caesar’s funeral. The varied reactions out of the crowd were based on the rhetoric these two characters illustrate. They both exercised parts of ethos, pathos, and logos. Mark Antony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral had more effect on the people of Rome.
Julius Caesar is a play that is primarily about persuasion. For example, Cassius manages to persuades Brutus the death of Caesar is necessary for the good of Rome. The ending of the play is basically determined by the speeches that were made to the plebeians by Brutus and Mark Antony. Throughout the play of Julius Caesar, examples of effective rhetoric are shown and the support it truly deserves by having Brutus's speech and it arguing about Mark Antony's. Shakespeare shows that Antony's speech is far more persuasive and reaching to the plebeians than Brutus’ is.
In William Shakespeare's ¨The Tragedy of Julius Caesar¨ after Caesar was killed then both Brutus and Mark Antony gave speeches to the people at Caesar's funeral. They were both trying to persuade the people that their point of view was the right one. Brutus was wanting the people to see that killing Caesar was a good choice and the only way to save Rome from tyranny. Mark Antony on the other hand was wanting the people to see how terrible it was that Caesar was murdered and that there was no reason for him to be killed and that the murders should be punished. Brutus and Mark Antony both use Mob Mentality which is how people are influenced by their peers to feel a certain way about something.
