He tells them that he doesn’t want to make them angry, which sets up a raging response to hearing the will of Caesar (III.ii.135-156). Though he has continued to refer to Brutus and the other conspirators as honorable men, the people are now angry with them and call them evil murderers (III.ii.163-168). At this point, Antony has resorted to only emotionally charged arguments to pull the people into his view and feel betrayed as Caesar did. He tells the audience to be ready to cry, and proceeds to fabricate valiant stories of Caesar with strong imagery to anger and sadden the commoners, despite a lack of any logical reasoning behind what he is saying (III.ii.181-207). He closes by humbling himself, stating that he has no power to sway their thoughts and that only Brutus has such power (III.ii.228-235).
People complain that Brutus is just as bad as Caesar, yet Brutus does it for justice of the people. While others explain that the Roman empire will fall due to Brutus’s actions, others will say that he has a high respect of the citizens, and the citizens would know he did the deed for the better good. While some may bicker about Brutus making predictions about the future, he is simply trying to prevent tyranny to get ahold of Rome and the empire. Brutus is the perfect example of anyone in the world, who wants to do the better good for everyone. Should Brutus join the conspiracy against Caesar?
Brutus’s character was easy to understand. Brutus is not a virtuous character, even though he has strict moral standards. He killed Julius Caesar, where at one point they were great friends. This proves that he is unloyal to his friends. All the major characters in the play were hungry for power, even Brutus had to capitulate at the opportunity.
Oedipus gets angry because Tiresias wIll not reveal the murderer of Laius. It is very clever to use this scene to show Oedipus’s temper because this side of him has not been shown. If they did not show this scene the audience/reader may not believe Oedipus is capable of the murders at the crossroads. It’s like Tiresias makes Oedipus angry on purpose so the audience/reader figures out the truth without him actually saying it. W. J. Verdenius quotes, “Tiresias is at once a traditionalist and an exceedingly clever man.” Tiresias’ ironic behavior and attitude towards revealing prophecy makes him symbolic to the

In the beginning of the book Odysseus is impulsive and arrogant. After Odysseus blinds and defeats the Cyclops, he cannot contain himself. Out of pure impulsiveness and the inability to be humble, Odysseus yells out to the Cyclops, “If any man on the face of the earth should ask you/ who blinded you, shamed you do so–say Odysseus,/raider of cities, he gouged out your eye,/Laertes’ son who makes his home in Ithaca!” (Homer 9.556-562). Odysseus is so impulsive he has to scream out his name to the gods and the Cyclops. Odysseus’ impulse overtakes his actions, and rather than waiting for the right time to do something, he cannot contain himself and must get it out.
Achilles reenters society with Priam by giving hospitality to Priam. Odysseus at first is proud and would not be patient at all. He tells Polyphemus, who he is and so Poseidon punishes him and his army because Poseidon is Polyphemus’ father. When Odysseus comes home, he does not say who he is outright instead he waits till he gets the upper hand and destroys all the other suitors. These changes are important because they start for glory and honor like most Greek heroes do, but in the end they get rid of their honor and pride and instead go for their own personal desires.
