Conflicting Brutus’ speech , Antony starts his speech with “Friends, Romans, countrymen…”, which makes the crowd want to listen to what he has to say, as he uses the word friends. This makes his emotional state more believable, as he talks about his “love” for Caesar, and made it more convincing that he was a good friend to Caesar. Throughout his speech, he uses parallelism and repetition to make Brutus look bad but also to defend Caesar’s reputation. Antony frequently used honorable to portray Brutus.
The use of repetition in Antony 's speech allows for him to persuade the crowd and enable him to indoctrinate the plebeians causing them to despise the conspirators undertakings and yearn for Caesar’s avengence. ‘You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And sure he is an honorable man’
In Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, the main character, Julius Caesar, believes he has two good friends in Mark Antony and Brutus, and he has good reason to believe so. That is until Brutus literally stabs Caesar in the back. Now it is time for Caesar’s funeral and both Brutus and Antony are giving speeches. During their speeches, Brutus and Antony use ethos, logos, and pathos, but with very different intentions. Brutus intends to justify his actions, and gain the support of the Roman people.
The appeals in Antony’s speech were persuasively better than the use of them in Brutus’s speech. Marc Antony uses all three appeals in his speech to make a very sturdy argument. An example of logos in his speech is when he states, “He hath brought many captives home to Rome Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill: Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?” This speech is Antony stating facts of Caesar’s work which proves that he is not ambitious and does not deserve to be killed. Antony also uses ethos and pathos when he says, “He was my friend, faithful and just to me.”
In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby, he created a morale haze that intensified the characters complexity, which enhanced their characterization. Nick Carraway, the most complex of the characters presented so far, had a moral dilemma, though it did not appear that way. His use of thick vocabulary was used to establish his false moral superiority to convince the audience that he could be trusted, which allowed Fitzgerald to lure the audience into a psychological trap giving them the impression that Nick was reliable, thus creating the illusion that he was trustworthy. Nick’s hypocrisy, however, made it obvious that he was not reliable. Fitzgerald used his dilemma to create breadcrumbs of hints of his intense struggle throughout the first
In this manner, Verbal Irony in Antony's discourse is surely successful on the Roman citizens. Antony utilizes Strong techniques in his discourse to inspire Roman individuals to conflict with Brutus and the backstabbers. Antony utilizes 3 techniques Pathos, Imagery, and Verbal irony to influence the Roman Citizens to conflict with Brutus and the Conspirators. He demonstrates pathos, which is feeling, imagery, which is a language that helps the audience visualize what is being described, and Verbal irony, which is words express something in spite of truth or somebody says the opposite they truly feel or mean. Hence those 3 strategies do perform on the Roman
Brutus’ tactics going into his speech were to influence the minds of the plebeians by using logical and philosophical reasoning to expound the death of Julius Caesar. In Antony 's speech, he was able to coerce the audience using emotion and vengeance. He used personal experiences in order to make the crowd question their position. The use of emotion was effective as the plebeians, with chants and pride, supported Antony. Finally, by using her words to make the public consider the facts, to get them involved in chants, and to create an atmosphere of impassioned fury, Emma Gonzalez creates a sound and justifiable claim that the crowd is not only willing to listen to, but truly believes.
When Mark Anthony says “Did this in Caesar seem ambitious? When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept.” it shows us that he really was saddened by the loss that Rome has just experienced. I like the fact that they both had respect for each other based in this excerpt from the speech “Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man. You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown,” even though Anthony did try and get Brutus prosecuted by bringing out Caesars stabbed body.
However, Antony quickly averts the audience's thoughts. The people question why they had suddenly began to show hate towards Caesar when Antony says “you all did love him once, not without cause:/ What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him? (3.2.111-113)” Ambition is often mentioned throughout the play and has a deep role in the events that take place. Brutus tries extensively to make himself sound heroic in order to gain more honor.
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.
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
Brutus and Antony both give speeches at Julius Caesar's funeral. Both men use a variety of ethos, pathos and logos as well. Although both men have very good points, it is clear Antony's speech is more persuasive because he uses ethos, pathos, and logos to appeal to the crowd more than Brutus does. Antony's speech is also more efficiet because he shows emotion and sympathy for the plebeians this makes the plebeians feel as if Antony is one of them and understands how they feel.
Mark Antony Over Marcus Brutus One can see as they read through Mark Antony’s and Marcus Brutus’ speeches, that they left a major effect on the crowd at Julius Caesar’s funeral. The varied reactions out of the crowd were based on the rhetoric these two characters illustrate. They both exercised parts of ethos, pathos, and logos. Mark Antony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral had more effect on the people of Rome.
