The riots by the people landed upon the life of Cinna the Poet, who had done nothing wrong. Shamefully, the people turned against Cinna because of namesake, and ultimately slaughtered him. The war that followed the riots ruthlessly killed multiple soldiers, some of whom were not fighting by choice. Caesar’s murder did not receive the best results, and some have wondered what would have happened if he were to be king. Although the conspirators firmly believed in the supposed malice in Caesar’s heart, they should not have murdered him because he had not yet done wrong, the action would cause a chain of unfortunate events, and Caesar’s murder would cost many other’s their lives.
Making decisions can often be one of the hardest situations someone is put through, especially when the decision can affects others and the way their lives will play out. In the play, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare wrote in 1599, the main focus is on how Rome fell after the soon to be king, Julius Caesar, was murdered. Brutus and many of Caesar’s “friends” were responsible for the murder. Throughout the story, many different writing techniques are used to get the point across, like soliloquies, dramatic irony, reverse psychology and many others. As we can tell from the story Brutus can be seen as a tragic hero.
Joining the Conspiracy In William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, there is a conspiracy planning to murder Caesar. This conspiracy consists of people who think Caesar is going to become a tyrant and Rome will be corrupt if he is crowned. Brutus, Caesar’s best friend, is deciding if he wants to become part of this conspiracy. At the beginning of Act II, he decides he wants to kill Caesar. Brutus had no justified reasons to murder Caesar.
Dasheng Bi Robin Yao Robin’s English 2017 S2: Section 1 5 November 2017 From whom does Tragedy Arise: An Analysis of Julius Caesar Shakespeare’s plays, especially his tragedies, are celebrated across the world. Though many of his other tragedies, such as Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, and Hamlet, are more famous and recognized, I find the play Julius Caesar to be at least as much, if not more, moving and tragic. The play is based on the historical event of the assassination of Caesar, the prominent politician and general of the Roman Republic. It depicts the events leading to and following Caesar’s death with somewhat of a historical accuracy, but focuses more on the psychological development of characters rather than Roman history. The play
Throughout Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, multiple nonconcrete aspects affect the plot. These aspects mix with some of the actions of the characters. The play begins with Julius Caesar returning to Rome after defeating his rival and is close to becoming the leader. A group of conspirators plans to assassinate Caesar in hopes of interfering with the obscene amount of power that he would gain if he took the position. Although there are warnings against going to the senate-house, Caesar ignores all of them and goes anyway.
Good public speakers usually use linguistic devices to enhance their speeches. William Shakespeare made sure to include that in his play, Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar is a play about a man that is about to get awarded the crown to Rome but is killed by his close friends. The Roman citizens do not know who to believe and are torn between Antony and Brutus. Antony was Caesar’s best friend and Brutus was one of the conspirators the killed Caesar.

In this scene, Cassius, the head conspirator, attempts to use ethos, pathos, and logos to convince Brutus to turn against Caesar. Cassius uses his knowledge of Caesar’s failings and his past with Caesar to prove he is a knowledgeable and credible source, while also trying to invoke feelings of anger in Brutus. Cassius mainly uses the device pathos by trying to invoke emotions in Brutus to turn him against Caesar.
Many people believe Cassius is the evil master mind behind the death of Julius Caesar, however every one blames Brutus, but it was Cassius. 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
Many lives were taken, not just Caesar’s, but many of the conspirators lives as well. Overall the remaining characters learned that terrible things will happen when you are easily manipulated and you listen to what everyone has to say. Brutus’ funeral speech in William Shakespeare’s A Tragedy of Julius Caesar was most effective due to their use of pathos, ethos, and logos.
In Julius Caesar by William Shakespear, Antony turns the crowd against Brutus and the other conspirators by using reputation to discredit them and rhetorical questions for the people to consider how Ceasar really lived his life. Antony was determined to discredit the conspirators without
