On the other hand, Marc Antony responds to Brutus’ speech at Caesar’s funeral stating that Brutus did not in fact kill Caesar for the good of Rome.
Victorian playwright, William Shakespeare, in his tragedy, Julius Caesar, writes a funeral speech delivered by Marc Antony about his dear friend, Julius Caesar 's, death. This followed Marcus Brutus’ speech which defended the actions of the conspirators that killed Caesar by claiming it was done for the good of Rome.

They might conclude as Caesar being shown as a bad leader only by Cassius’ explanation. Just because Cassius disliked him does not mean he would not be truthful about Caesar’s characteristics. Cassius is the one who talked about Caesar’s weaknesses to Brutus. He also wrote letters to Brutus from other people to show how Caesar is imperfect to be a leader.Others might support Caesar by saying he loved all the citizens based on the will.
