After Caesar’s death, Brutus makes a speech that convinces everyone that what he did was right. His speech was powerful, but not powerful enough. Not soon after, Mark Antony as made a great speech. He uses his words to completely change the crowd and they begin to follow him instead of Brutus. One debater, from Debate.org, argued that words depend on weapons for anything to be done.
The conspirators were successful in killing Caesar for the “Good of Rome”. In the play A Tragedy of Julius Caesar a conspiracy is formed to kill Caesar because many think he is getting too ambitious. In the conspiracy people were turning against other people; sides were being taken. Although Antony stays loyal to Caesar, he causes a great deal of damage to the city of Rome due to the things he decided to say to the common people. Many lives were taken, not just Caesar’s, but many of the conspirators lives as well.
One of them is Brutus could be tracked down and executed for killing Caesar. Though it would help the people of Rome Brutus doesn't want to die because of his actions. All of Caesar's guards would hunt down Brutus and assassinate him for killing who they thought was a great
Brutus and Antony make speeches for Caesar’s Funeral and out of the two Antony is the stronger speaker. This is because he uses the rhetorical strategy Pathos and on example is the following quote, “He hath brought many captives home to Rome Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill...When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept...Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man”(Act III, scene ii, line 1631-1632, 1634-1635, 1637-1638). Here, Antony has just started using Pathos by showing that Caesar did great things for Rom and that he knows how the people feel. The reason why it’s Pathos is because Antony makes Caesar seem relatable and that he cares about the people. Thus, making it appeal to the people emotions
Intro: “Belief can be manipulated. Only knowledge is dangerous” as Frank Herbert once said. People may manipulate others to do their biddings in order to achieve their personal goals. No matter how hard it is, manipulators eventually reach their prey. This is the plan Cassius uses to initiate his final plan, to kill Caesar.
Marcus Junius Brutus and Mark Antony both deliver speeches to justify the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE and both use Logos and Ethos to convince the Roman citizens to join their sides. Both sides deliver their speeches with vehemence and start by elucidating why Brutus killed Caesar to begin with, why Antony’s desire for revenge is justified, and what the future of Rome will be because of his death. Antony teases the citizens of Rome with the will of Caesar that he holds in hand and claims it will dishonor Brutus and the other conspirators and is also one of his vital uses of Ethos in his speech. Most of the citizens, if not all of them side with Antony and will most likely help him accede to a great title of power in the future and also betray Brutus because of what Antony has them believe, i.e. an ignoble assassin.
He also created support in his speeches where he used pathos to create an emotional connection to his people by referring to “the family man”. Lincoln handle disagreement much differently than Davis by defusing the tension with humor and the personal image of himself he projected made it easy for common people to relate to him. He won the heart of his soldiers by visiting the battlefields and talking with the soldiers. The easy way he talked to soldiers earned him the name “Old
Antony uses a greater variety of rhetorical devices than Brutus does in his speech, ultimately leading him to a more successful outcome. Although Brutus does get the people to understand his motive for the assassination of Caesar, Antony quickly undoes everything that Brutus had accomplished with his speech. Antony manages to divert the minds of the people away from everything they were just convinced of, and then completely alters the people’s perspective to fit his views and reasoning. Overall, Antony does this by strategically using a handful of different rhetorical questions in his speech. He first utilizes ethos in order to establish his credibility and principles before he proceeds any further, which the man does on purpose in order to gain the plebians’ trust.
In the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar one of the main characters Caesar is killed in Scene 3 act 2.Then Brutus and Antony both give speeches about how bad they feel.Brutus gives a good speech by using all three of the rhetorical appeals to persuade the crowd to want to listen to what he say by using logos,ethos,pathos to his advantage.Brutus gives a better speech that draws the audience attention,Antony not as much.Therefor here are some very valid points on why Brutus’s speech used the Rhetorical Appeals better. Brutus uses Pathos most out of all of the three Rhetorical appeals.He tries to use the crowds and the reader’s emotions to win their heart.As Brutus talks to the crowded they are very angry,so Brutus starts off by trying to cool them down.”Be patient till the
Antony’s Speech Using Rhetorical Appeals In William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, after Caesar’s death, the Romans are conflicted about what should be done. After Brutus’ speech the Romans are ready to crown Brutus king and be on the conspirators’ side. Though Brutus then leaves the crowd while Antony delivers his speech, the crowd realizes what should be done of Caesar’s murder and Antony prevents the conspirators from getting away with the murder of Caesar. Antony uses rhetorical appeals and techniques in his speech to turn the people of Rome against those conspiring against Caesar. As a result, the people see Antony as a persuasive and strong leader of Rome.
