Brutus’ nobility takes away much of his understanding for how the plebeians understand and think. Brutus takes part in the stabbing of Caesar because it is what 's best for Rome so after in his speech to the plebs, he 's giving perfectly logical reasoning to someone of his stature, but ok`3`for the plebs it doesn 't mean very much for them as it does not provoke emotion. Referencing Caesar 's death Brutus lectures to the plebs, “Believe me for mine / honor, and have respect to mine honor that you may be- / lieve. Censure me in your wisdom, and awake your / senses that you may the better judge (III.ii.15-18). Brutus clearly thinks that speaking in a more formal manner will get his point to the plebs while as they are not very dignified honorable people they don’t take the point home.
Also, the knights showed dignity through various acts, such as fighting and dying for their king, and also by fighting for the name of the queen. Within Aristotle’s work known as, Ethics, he states, “The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.” Aristotle believed that a man should be able to admit his accidents with dignity and grace, meaning that he should live to a simpler form of chivalry in respect to the ability to be humble and honest in his mistakes. Also, the ability of a knight to be truthful and honest is another key aspect to the code of
The need to avenge Caesar 's death gave Antony a motivation but he also used emotion to win the trust of the Romans. Brutus used logic to persuade the crowd but more specifically he used his own opinion meanwhile Antony used a correlation with of his own opinion as well a the crowd. To him “ He was my [his] friend, faithful and just to [him]” (III.ii.87). Antony provides an intimate experience with Caesar to which the crowd had not been exposed to. The emotion he expresses are with grief and anger.
He continues by saying “as he was/ valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I/ slew him (3.2.27-28).” Through these words he shows the people what he is capable of doing and how conflicts must be resolved. In contrast, Antony is trying to make Brutus sound like an imposter and he constantly repeats the phrase “Brutus is an honorable man (3.2.91).” When he uses this phrase in such sentences it slowly starts to sound sarcastic or stretched. “He was my friend, faithful and just to me:/ But Brutus says he was ambitious;/And Brutus is an honourable man (3.2. ).” Antony continues his debate by giving examples of the great treasures Caesar has brought Rome.
Brutus starts out his speech by saying “Believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour…” (III. ii. L 14-15). He is asking the audience, the commoners, to trust his decisions, because after all, he is the very honourable Brutus. Antony starts his speech a little differently.
Othello falls for Iago’s lies because he sees Othello as a trustworthy man. The reason Othello’s trust in Iago is high, it is because of his honesty, giving him the name “Honest Iago,” and Othello has also known him for years. Throughout the whole story, Othello is lead to believe Iago’s lies and would trust him more than anyone else even his wife Desdemona. With Iago trying manipulate Othello, it works well causing him to do things leading to disbelieve the close people around him. One of Iago’s plans to cause Othello to take action was the day of Othello’s wedding.
Although time in his profession undoubtedly helped him learn how to plan and make good decisions, Friar Lawrence’s personality also contributes to these skills.. Since Romeo knows Friar Lawrence’s personality and how the friar is better equipped to make decisions, Romeo often goes to him for help. An example of this is when Romeo goes to Friar Lawrence to ask him about Juliet. Because Romeo goes to Friar Lawrence for help with decision making, Romeo
Antony was talking about how honorable Brutus is but as he gets to talking about how Brutus kills him, he states “He was your friend, faithful and just to me” (2.2.13). Antony knew how great of a friend was to him, but Caesar being a king would change all of that. Caesar would be a different man, and not as faithful toward Antony. When Brutus speaks and his first words were “be patient till the last” (2.2.1). Brutus wants the people to listen to his reason, and not think he is a murderer but a man with a quest.
However, unlike his father, Laertes actually means what he is saying and knows what he is talking about (Evans 26; Sadowski 10). Laertes is respected by many for his strong set of morals as well as his belief in justice and honor. He is idealistic and well-meaning (“Hamlet” 3). His character represents the “...embodiment of official duty and obedience...”(Sadowski 9). Hamlet was a long-time friend of Laertes until his sudden descent into fake madness and obsession with revenge which consequently lead to the accidental killing of Polonius that was meant to be Claudius.
Moreover, Othello’s actions are based on seemingly physical evidence, giving him good reason to act as he does. Indeed, Othello has no reason to distrust Iago, his loyal ensign. Throughout the play, the majority of the characters are deceived by Iago, believing him to be honest and trustworthy. Whilst speaking with Emilia, Desdemona refers to Iago as “an honest fellow” (Shakespeare, 3.3.5). Similarly, after Cassio hears Iago’s advice to seek out Othello and beg for forgiveness, he bids a “good night [to] honest Iago” (Shakespeare, 2.3.313), who is none other than the man that diminishes his reputation and causes him to lose his title.
Beowulf is a good ruler for his people. He will fight for them even when they aren’t with him. I believe he’s a good fit for modern times because we need a good ruler like him now-a-days. Someone who is not selfish and not afraid to do something that’s terrifying. Beowulf states, “That I, alone and with the help of my men, May purge all evil from this hall” (“from Beowulf” ln.
Finally, the last characteristic Simon possesses is that he is devotedly faithful. He is an enormous believer of God and loves sharing his faith with other people. This is proven during various conversations with Reverend Russell and his best friend, Joe Wenteworth. When Simon is talking to the reverend, he suggests that God made him the way he is for a reason and says, “I think I 'm God 's instrument - that he 's gonna use me to carry out his plan.” Despite the reverend not agreeing to this statement, Simon still has faith he is. The last occurrence when Simon is faithful is when he is continually encouraging Joe to be joyful.
Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot. 2. At the beginning of the novel, Tom describes himself as a very tolerant man who often moves people who generally keep to themselves to open up to him without much effort. Tom prides himself on reserving his judgment of others until he takes time to observe and get to know them. This is a quality he is obviously proud of as he makes a point to describe his habits surrounding this quality in depth.
The father of the narrator, Atticus Finch, has become a model of morality for many readers, as well as an example of an honest lawyer. He shows human courage, which gives us the idea that Atticus is a common and inconspicuous man he is represented from the eyes of the children, who are getting some heat from all his actions. There is an idea in the novel that children have a sense of justice and become prejudice only under the influence of others. This idea comes from a lawyer Atticus, a man of honor, who is doing good although he isn’t expected to. His arguments for heroism are “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.
