This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him. In addition, his thoughts and conflicts refer to his idea that if Caesar becomes king, that he will end up harming or endangering Rome. Brutus believes killing Caesar, results to the only solution to help and protect Rome, which relates back to his conflict. Overall, Brutus’ internal conflict involves deciding to kill Caesar, or not, because he does not necessarily want to kill Caesar, but sees it as the only way to protect Rome and its people. His love for Rome and the Roman people proves greater than his love for Caesar, who he somewhat looks to as a friend.
However, his endeavour made him the ultimate ruler at the end. He was motivated both by personal desire and love for Caesar. Mark Antony wanted the people to take actions as per his command, he wants more power, and he wanted to defeat the conspirators in order to avenge Caesar death. In the play Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare is able to write the character of Mark Antony in a splendid fashion. The character of Mark Antony develops throughout the play as the play progresses Antony’s love and ambition towards Caesar will change him into a ruthless tyrant as Caesar was before his death.
Also, Caligula’s baffling Uncle Claudius became Emperor by the Praetorian Guard. Personally, Caligula was a tragedy waiting to happen. The people of Rome may have known that his reign would be the forefront of destruction to the Roman Empire, but a blind hope of arrogance clouded their judgment as Caligula’s terror destroyed the lives of those around him. However, Caligula’s life was built for luxury, military warfare, and egomania. Most Emperors would have the decency to respect his people, protect their empire, and keep peace among other countries.
However, Antony uses his exact words to negate his argument. He says, “But Brutus says he was ambitious.” He does this in order to show the crowd that the conspirator 's main reason for killing Caesar was wrong. By giving examples of how Caesar wasn’t ambitious, then saying that Brutus said Caesar was ambitious, he turns the crowd against the conspirators, achieving his specific effect. Antony was the more persuasive character in the use of repetition because he was able to disprove the things Brutus said. Brutus’ main argument was that Caesar was ambitious, and Antony purposely disproved his main argument so that the crowd would have no choice but to support
The Soothsayer is telling Caesar that something bad might happen to him and Caesar doesn't believe anything bad could ever happen to him which shows his arrogance. Caesar's arrogance isn't completely his fault because people are constantly building him up. Brutus asks Casca, “Was the crown offered him thrice?” (1.2.227). Antony offered Caesar the crown three times and every time he refused it every time. Every time Antony offered the crown to Caesar it built him up and built his arrogance and making him feel more wanted and important than he
Brutus 's speech: Brutus speaks to the people of rome why he killed caesar so they will not turn on him. He talked about how he didnt kill him because he didn 't love him but because it was for the better of rome. He also tells the people of rome that letting caesar become king would mean the government type would change and all the wars and hard work his family had put into the government would go away. He also states, for the welfare of rome that he would die for rome if rome demands his death Rhetorical devices: Brutus used questions, logos, parallelism, and pathos to stir the people of rhome. Question- “ who is so base, that would not be a roman”?- this makes his argument better because it get the people of rome to think.
questions Brutus (Shakespeare). Although it took much convincing for Brutus to kill his best friend, he finally took the only logical option he had: sacrificing one man for the sake of the entire city, hence his statement, ". . . not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more" (Shakespeare).
Even though they wanted Caesar to become king he did not accept the invitation immediately but he eventually became king of Rome. As king, a number of politicians saw Caesar as an aspiring king and romans had no desire about it. Everyone loved him and wanted him to be the King of Roman and they also wanted him to rule the world. (https://www.biography.com/people/julius-caesar-9192504). Although many loved Caesar he also has people to hate him also.
Calpurnia is clairvoyant, yet Decius was ignoble, as he claims that the nightmares are nothing to worry about despite the fact that he knows for a fact that Caesar will be dying. This is lying. Decius wanted more so to obliterate Caesar. As Decius is saying in the play, he will be laughing and affronting others for not liking Caesar. Decius
But Cassius was right in thinking that Brutus should be the leader of the conspirators because he knew how to lead people and how to gather important people; but he was not right in the fact that he thought he could control Brutus. Brutus depended on Cassius a lot near the end of the play because he needed people on his side after he killed Caesar. He needed people to know that it was in his best interest that it was for Rome’s good. But things don’t go well in the end when both men decide to kill themselves, like in Romeo and Juliet… If both main characters were men. This is one example that shows that even though Brutus and Cassius thought that their plans would make Rome a better place, it ended up taking both of their lives and made Rome even worse because they no longer had Caesar, a potential great
