Cassius influenced Brutus to conspire against Caesar by stating, Caesar “is now become a god… and his name has been sounded more than [Brutus’s]” (Act 1, Scene 2, Line 118-145-6). Cassius’s arguments convinced Brutus in proving Caesar's murder would be just, but Caesar’s death is unjust because he is being murdered out of Brutus and Cassius’s jealousy. Both of the individuals are envious of the power that Caesar is being given by the people of Rome and want to end his life before they will lose their own power in the senate after Caesar becomes king. Brutus’ naive mind was easily convinced by Cassius that Caesar was not the best choice to assume the Roman throne because he would not listen to their political thoughts. Individuals, such as Cassius and Brutus, in the senate were afraid of having their power decreased because Caesar, as Brutus states, is an “unhatched serpent’s egg” (Act 2, Scene 1, Line 33).

Cassius understands Brutus’ idealism and uses it to destroy Caesar. However, ultimately this becomes the cause of his downfall. Brutus was destroyed due to his own idealism. Also, Machiavellian is one theme. It means someone doing whatever to gain more power.
All that his murderers had against him were their thoughts of what might come, and that is not sufficient to commit a murder. The action of killing Caesar would, and did cause a chain of unfortunate events. Brutus and Cassius were driven from Rome and lived as exiles, building armies in order to
Julius Caesar was the Dictator of Rome in 42 BC who accomplished many things. Many people believed that he was a hero, but Julius Caesar was a very ambitious dictator and was more of a villain than a hero. Julius Caesar was a villain because he didn’t think first before doing something, he forced the Senate to name him dictator for life and he also was a glory hound and put his needs before the republic. To begin with, Julius Caesar was a was a glory hound and put his needs before the republic. Caesar used his power as dictator more towards his advantage instead of helping the people in Rome.
In the story Caesar is to be king of Rome, Brutus plans to kill Caesar for he says that if Caesar were to become king all of the people in Rome would become slaves, although Caesar is Brutus most loved person. Anthony also considers Caesar as his most love person and there doesn’t want Caesar to die. Anthony won the overall fight of speech because of why Brutus betrayed Caesar, what his own thoughts of Brutus reasons were, and what Anthony thought on Caesar’s death himself. Anthony’s speech is more effective than Brutus for the fact that Anthony explained that he never betrayed Caesar like Brutus did, Brutus betrayed Caesar by killing him for the fact that he loved Rome more.

Everybody knows people don't want to let down their ancestors even if they're dead.

The letters said they were from the people and said they don't want Caesar to become king.
Julius Caesar undergoes many conflicts that reveal his arrogance to the audience. An example of how his internal conflicts reveal his arrogance is the way that he acts about those he thinks he cannot trust. Caesar thinks that he cannot trust Cassius, but when he speaks of Cassius, he seems to be at war with himself to not show his fear. Caesar shows arrogance by saying that Cassius is a dangerous observer that cannot be trusted, then goes on to say that he is not afraid of Cassius. Caesar faces another internal conflict that shows his arrogance when his desire for the crown is aroused.
While Julius Caesar’s life ended in tragedy, Octavian was able to live out his life and be an emperor. Octavian succeeded where Julius Caesar failed due to him being more ruthless towards his enemies and by avoiding the stigma of a tyrant. While Julius Caesar was a great military leader and politician, he
Surprisingly, Cassius was able to catch Brutus’s attention. “‘Therefore good Brutus, be prepared to hear; and since you know you cannot see yourself so well as by reflection, I, your glass, will modestly discover to yourself that of yourself which you yet know not of’” (Julius Caesar 1.2). These words spoken by Cassius were used to manipulate Brutus into believing that he was better than Caesar. The usage of charisma by
