By refusing to read the will several times and admitting that what it contains will cause the people to have such a great love for Caesar that knowing he is now dead will be unbearable, Antony ignites curiosity in the people and furthermore, a subconscious feeling of respect and graciousness toward Caesar. Basically, Antony uses Caesar’s will to convince the people that Caesar was a selfless, kind-hearted man and those who killed him should be ashamed and punished for killing an innocent man. Through Antony’s use of paralipsis, he is able to plant a seed of admiration for Caesar and one of hate for the conspirators in the hearts of the plebeians. In his speech to the citizens, Antony also asks many rhetorical questions to cause his audience to pause and reflect on how they really feel, or how Antony wants them to feel, about certain people and events that have recently become important. In one instance.
He is pulling from everyone's hearts and making them think that he is the good guy and everyone should not be on Brutus’s side, He is preparing them and almost making them think that they should cry and be sad when he pulls out the mantle which is a huge example of logos. The second to last example of logos is, “Look in this place ran Cassius’ dagger through. See what a rent the envious Casca made.” (Shakespeare PG 125)
Great Britain burned the white house and other buildings, but in the end, the American flag still waved the fort, proving that the fort had not been captured by Great Britain. Madison encouraged congress to declare war and solved many conflicts by violence with other countries, causing him to be involved with other countries
Pathos is a quality that evokes pity or sadness. Antony first uses pathos in his speech when he says”Bear with me; for my heart is in the coffin there with Caesar.” When he is finished saying this he pauses to let the crowd sink in these ideas and then antony goes on his real rampage after this. This emotion that he show lets the people feel it to since he was such close friends with Caesar. Antony might be referring to the people even that since he was such a close friend to Caesar and that their hearts are still together he should be the next ruler.
“ Give me liberty or give me death”,( Patrick Henry). The most well known speech given by the prestigious Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 expressing his thoughts and feelings about fighting back against Britain and protecting their beloved country. At this time the British was defeating America terribly which had made Patrick Henry feel as though his freedom was being jeopardized. Patrick Henry’s speech was an attempt to persuade the american citizens not to just sit and do nothing, he wanted to fight back against Britain. Patrick Henry felt as though many of the citizens were not aware of the seriousness of what was happening and that the needed to have a wake up call.
This is used to display his emotion. Antony states, “Bear with me; My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me” (3.2. 33-35). From this quote, you can tell that Antony believes killing Caesar was wrong and he wanted the citizens to think that as well. Even though he wanted to be the king, Caesar was still his friend.
George was in shock over what he did to his friend. In Julius Caesar, Brutus also shows concern for his friend, who he knows will be killed by the conspirators. During the meeting the eventually ended Caesar’s life, Brutus is saddened when Caesar calls him his friend. “That every like is not the same, O Caesar,/ The heart of Brutus yearns to think upon” (Shakespeare Act II Scene II, 32). In addition to that, Brutus was also the last to stab Caesar.
It was one’s reputation. For instance, in Act 3 Scene 1, Romeo states, “In my behalf. My reputation stained/ With Tybalt’s slander- Tybalt that an hour” Tybalt’s lies damaged Romeo’s reputation. The people in Verona already thought of him, a Montague, as a nuisance because of the ancient grudge between their families.
Rhetorical strategies are a necessity for persuasion. Patrick Henry demonstrates this notion in his speech to the Virginia Convention. Henry’s rhetorical strategies of rhetorical questioning and refuting opposing arguments supports his argument that America must go to war with Britain. One of Henry’s main assertions is that the British are already preparing for war with the colonies. By asking the delegates of the Virginia Convention if “fleets and armies” are “necessary to a work of love and reconciliation,” Henry questions the British’s motives (Henry).
These war begun between Great Britain and the 13 united British colonies on the United States. However, this war ended in a global war between European powers. This war was the bomb of the American Revolution where the colonists do not want the rights of the Great Britain in governing them without any representation. In 1775, revolutionaries had gained control of the thirteen colonial governments. They set up the Second Continental Congress and formed a Continental Army.
The Massachusetts Bay colony had put together a circular letter for all the other colonies basically trying to get them to boycott Great Britain for being unfair and unconstitutional. The new colonial secretary was ordered by parliament to get the assembly to back off. Then later order for the Massachusetts Governor Francis Bernard to get them to back off. And when that couldn 't be done they sent in the army. And the
As an immediate result of Marc Antony’s funeral oration, Rome is steered into a state of anarchy. With the loss of their leader leaving them vulnerable, the plebeians falls victim to Antony’s engagement of rhetoric and are greatly stirred by his speech. Despite their commendation of Brutus just moments before, they are easily pit against him through Antony’s words and feel morally compelled to revolt against the conspirators in the name of Caesar. This frenzy escalates rapidly and the anger towards the conspirators grows so large to the point where the plebeians will penalize anybody who bears a slight similarity to them. For instance, two plebeians encounter a poet and, after besieging him with a slew of questions, discover that he shares
Overall, Antony cares more about Caesar and his death than anyone or anything, so he lets evil win. When Antony realizes Caesar is dead, he is so overwhelmed by grief that he wants to die right then and there because he doesn’t want to live in a world without Julius Caesar. That is how much Antony loves him. Antony was blinded by his sadness and the loss, that he lost his senses and the only solution he could see was death for himself. When he finally regained his senses and his composure, he made a plan to avenge Caesar’s death by turning the whole of Rome against Cassius and
“Et tu, Brute?” Caesar uttered his last words as he witnesses Brutus stab him, “Then fall Caesar!” Brutus was that of the most trusted of Caesar. He was persuaded into political extremism which pushed him to conspire with envious senators and ultimately, participate in the brutal assassination of Caesar, who was ruthlessly stabbed 33 times, so he could become active ruler in Rome in the works of William Shakespeare derived from the play Julius Caesar. With what is being claimed, Brutus couldn’t possibly have been a honest man but a traitor.
