Later in Act II, Artemidorus has written a letter to Caesar that could’ve also prevented his fate but that he chose not to act on. The letter says, “Caesar, beware of Brutus; take heed of Cassius, come not near Casca; have and eye to Cinna; trust not Trebonius; make well Metellus Cimber; Decius Brutus loves thee not; thou hast wronged Caius Ligarius. There is but one mind in all these three men, and it is bent against Caesar. If thou beest not immortal, look about you: securily gives way to conspiracy. The mighty gods defend thee!
One man, George, was a germaphobe and was scared of being hosed off. McMurphy stands up for George and ends up getting into a fight with one of the aids. Bromden backs McMurphy up in the fight, so they both had to get EST treatment. As previously described, the table is shaped like a cross which helps prove that he is a Christ figure because Jesus was hung on a cross. Another instance where McMurphy is presented as a Christ figure is when Ratched found Billy Bibbit with Candy in the Seclusion room.
After reading excerpts from Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, write an essay that compares Brutus’ speech with Marc Antony’s speech and argues the effectiveness of the rhetorical devices (ethos, pathos, logos) used in each. Be sure to support your position with evidence from the texts. William Shakespeare writes a play about Julius Caesar’s assassination and the speeches his friends gave at his funeral. In the play, Brutus assassinated Caesar because he thought he was protecting Rome. He was saying that if Caesar got all the power he would most likely become vicious and make everyone his slaves.
He compares himself to Brutus, claiming that he cannot “stir men’s blood” through his speaking as Brutus can (Shakespeare 224). First of all, this established a line of trust with his audience - Antony is able to convince the plebeians that he is not aiming to manipulate their actions, only to speak his truth of Caesar’s death. Feeling betrayed by Brutus at this point, this argument is effective in giving the plebeians a new faith in Antony’s words. However, in actuality, this statement is enough to compel the plebeians to the exact opposite. The common folk are made to “move / the stones of Rome to rise and mutiny” because of Antony’s enunciation (Shakespeare 230-231).
He is known for the kiss and betrayal of Jesus to the Sanhedrin for thirty silver coins. Judas, showing remorse for betraying Jesus, returned the money to the Sanhedrin and committed suicide by hanging himself, but not before leaving Mary with
Soothsayer The soothsayer is a fortuneteller and he tells Caesar to beware of March 15 ”Beware of March 15” Loyalty to Caesar Brutus Brutus was first loyal to Caesar but then he is convinced that Caesar is abusing his power so he helps kill Caesar. “The only way is to kill Caesar I have no personal reason to strike at him only the best interest of people. He wants to be crowned.” Brutus showed the greatest amount of loyalty to his country. He killed a friend for what he thought would be a better Rome. He was loyal to his country but not to his friend.
While Decius is speaking with Caesar, trying to flatter Caesar with the use of rhetoric into going to the capitol on The Ides of March, Caesar becomes flattered and agrees to Decius’s request after Decius has stated “Signifies that from you great Rome shall suck/Reviving blood, and that great men shall press.”(39 Decius). Later in the play, a man Metellus is attempting to gain his brother freedom from banishment by using rhetoric upon Caesar,Caesar denies his request and declares “Be not fond,/ To think that Caesar bears such rebel blood” (43 Caesar). Caesar is ultimately manipulated by Decius’s use of rhetoric, but his one-sided arrogance still leads him to a conclusion, that he is not fooled by flattering. Caesar’s inability to be flattered is false, the rhetoric used upon him by intentful characters in the play often times leads to his trickery, his proclamation of his inability to be flattered contradicts his true feelings. Thus proving Caesar’s actions challenge his true beliefs/feelings, because his proclamation of his inability to be flattered contradicts his true feelings/beliefs of
He is devoted and utterly selfless for the good of his country. For instance, Brutus stabs Caesar because he is tricked into thinking that the citizens fear Caesar. Keeping this in mind, Brutus kills Caesar to satisfy and ease his people, demonstrating that he prioritizes his country over his friendship with Caesar. Though Brutus ended Caesar’s life, Brutus still holds some loyalty to friends and says, “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved/ Rome more.” (3.2.50-60) Brutus’ words emphasize his devotion to his country above Caesar. He is exceptionally passionate about his beloved Rome, trumping his love for Caesar.
