Line 264-66). Pathos is shown as Antony provokes how important Caesar was to the Roman Empire and all he has done for his town, stirring the crowds’ perspectives through the sympathy he speaks across. Antony finishes this quote with spreading gratefulness to the crowd, and how hard it will be for them to find a leader as inspiring
Caesar was a friend to all, a great leader, a great warrior, and a man who cared for the people but he was still a man and like a man he had ambitions. those ambitions are what made him great but they are also what made him dangerous not only for Rome's enemies but for Rome herself and the men, women, and children whom reside in her. Caesar was not dangerous because of the man he was
Antony also made a speech explaining that Caesar was a good man killed in cold blood. Antony’s speech is effective because of repetition, personification, and apostrophe. Repetition is used frequently in his speech, especially during the end. “Brutus says he was ambitious” (Ⅲ, ii), “Brutus is an honorable man” (Ⅲ, ii). The purpose behind this is Antony is
The residents of Thebes thought well of their king, and this is evident in line 41, “Again now Oedipus, our greatest power,” as well as in line 39, “you raised up our life, so we believe.” The people believed that Oedipus greatly impacted their lives for the better, and decided they would forever praise him for his great doings. Oedipus was determined to find the murderer, and to end the plague that was on his people. Although the people viewed the King as high and mighty, they also knew he was not perfect and was like them, just higher in the social order. Not only was Oedipus represented as a tragic figure through his high ranking in the social class, but he also knew that he himself was the ultimate reason for his
He uses ethos to show the credibility of the speeches, logos to show facts given, and pathos to show the emotion shown throughout the eulogies. In this scene Caesar has been murdered by the conspirators including Brutus. Brutus is one of Caesar's good friends who is driven by honor; who thought Caesar’s ambition was going to be the end of Rome. Antony is a very loyal friend of Caesar’s who does not agree with the conspirators. Brutus and Antony are both smart well thought out characters.
Brutus continuously mentions that Caesar was ambitious. In his famous quote he says, “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.” Brutus uses the repetition of ambitious to emphasize the conspirator 's reason for murdering Caesar. By repeating the word “ambitious” he makes sure that the audience knew exactly why Caesar had to be killed. This helps to create the specific effect of justifying the conspirator 's actions because it gives the audience a solid reason for why Caesar was dangerous. However, Antony uses his exact words to negate his argument.
Julius Caesar was a great man and did great things for Rome. Julius completed every task he was told and one many wars making Rome a gold mine. Julius was love by almost all the people of Rome and did his best to please each and every citizen of Rome (even if they weren’t full citizens). Even though some most people would have preferred Caesar to
Killings for the Good of Rome Not every story has a villain sometimes there are all heros doing the right thing for the greater good. That is the case for Julius Caesar because there is only multiple heroes. They are all doing what is best for the people. Julius Caesar, Brutus, and Antony are did what was best for the people, and some of them had to face some consequences for their actions. Julius Caesar was a congenial man always caring for his people and wanted what was best for his citizens.
Anthony spoke to the emotions of the crowd by crying and talking about all the good things that Caesar did for Rome in a persuasive tone there 's a major difference between the two speeches Brutus was very honorable and Anthony was very persuasive and smart ,Brutus was Honorable in a way that he always told the people the truth ,his speech was real short to the point and spoke to the logic of the people in the crowd for example .Brutus spoke in a dettach way about Caesar 's death . Another hand Antony appears to the citizens feelings right from the beginning he does this asleep because he really does have a strong feelings about the death of his friend and he loves Caesar and hates the conspirators and wants revenge the strongest contrast between the two characters appears to their ability and inability to to
In Antony’s speech, a sentimental appeal is used in order to persuade the Romans by manipulating their emotions to feel pity for Caesar. Brutus, before he stabbed Caesar, was one of the latter’s closest friends, and Antony does not hesitate to mention this in his speech. He explains the intimacy between Brutus and Caesar, and how much the victim loved the convict. In order to really rub it in how Brutus betrayed Caesar, Antony describes, “This was the most unkindest cut
Despite Augustus’ intrusive law he was still well loved by the people of Rome so much that when he resigned from consulship he was begged to come back, there were even riots against his resignation. Augustus was a extremely well known figure in history and that is because he was known for the “[p]eace within the empire [that] was counted [as] the greatest blessing,” (192.) He was always concerned with the welfare of the people, the laws of Rome, and the fact that power should not be flaunted around. This highlights Augustus’ strong points as an emperor of Rome, and all the things he did for Rome that changed it
This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire. Since the Romans did not like that title of king, “he received the title Augustus by decree of the senate.” During his reign, Caesar accomplish countless things, which is why he is still talked highly about to this day. He repaired the conduits of aqueducts, dozens of temples, and completed the Julian forum and the basilica. He did these things because, like Qin, he loved and truly cared about his empire and wanted to see it flourish and restored; not broken and destroyed. His political authority grew stronger as the years went on therefore, he “attained supreme power by universal consent.” He did this by gaining the peoples respect.
