He uses aporia, loaded words, and a dramatic pause to manipulate the Roman people and cause them to have fiery emotions. Antony follows Brutus’ speech at Caesar’s funeral and uses aporia to produce a manipulative and fiery tone. Since aporia feigns or pretends, Antony uses this rhetorical device by claiming, “Hear this testament-/ Which, pardon me, I do not mean to read” (Shakespeare 45). Antony is referring to Caesar’s will and claims he does not wish to read it; although, he knows that saying this will manipulate the Roman people and cause them to have a greater desire to hear the testament. Using this rhetorical device calls more attention to the will and what is written in it.
While Brutus uses questions against Caesar, Antony uses them for Caesar, but against Brutus. He does not really agree that Brutus is honorable, but is making fun of him. He shows passion by using thought and emotions while asking the citizens questions, this causes them to gain respect and trust Antony over Brutus. Marc Antony makes a remarkable personality change as a character, from a “party guy” to an extremely clever man by using reverse psychology in order to persuade listeners. Antony utilizes Brutus’s own words against him to show the truth about the conspirators and their intentions of killing Caesar.
However, Antony uses his exact words to negate his argument. He says, “But Brutus says he was ambitious.” He does this in order to show the crowd that the conspirator 's main reason for killing Caesar was wrong. By giving examples of how Caesar wasn’t ambitious, then saying that Brutus said Caesar was ambitious, he turns the crowd against the conspirators, achieving his specific effect. Antony was the more persuasive character in the use of repetition because he was able to disprove the things Brutus said. Brutus’ main argument was that Caesar was ambitious, and Antony purposely disproved his main argument so that the crowd would have no choice but to support
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.
In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Cassius wishes to convince Brutus to join the conspiracy against Caesar, because he and his co-conspirators believe Caesar is unfit for ruling Rome, and that Caesar would bring about the fall of their great city. In this passage, Cassius persuades Brutus through his self-image and emotional connection to Rome, his trust in Cassius’s nature and judgements, and his reasoning as to why Caesar becoming ruler is dangerous for Rome. Cassius capitalizes on Brutus’s emotions in that he gives compliments for the purpose of inflating Brutus’s ego.This is shown when Cassius says Brutus has “hidden worthiness”, (1,2,57) and his worthiness earns him “many of the best respect in Rome” (1,2,59). Cassius utilizes these compliments
In William Shakespeare’s tragedy Julius Caesar, Mark Antony uses rhetorical devices such as paralipsis, rhetorical questions, and verbal irony in his speech to the plebeians in order to plot them against the conspirators. During his speech to the plebians, Antony uses paralipsis in order to kindle curiosity and interest in the audience. Antony mentions to the plebians that he had Caesar’s will with him but tells them, “Have patience, gentle friends, I must not read it; It is not meet you know how much Caesar loved you” (3.2.152-153). By drawing attention to Caesar’s will, something Antony desperately wants to show the plebeians, but then dismissing the idea of reading it, Antony uses a type of verbal irony called paralipsis. Antony is aware that the contents
This is the plan Cassius uses to initiate his final plan, to kill Caesar. Cassius wants Brutus to think that if Throughout the play Julius Caesar, written by William shakespeare, Cassius uses manipulation to form his group of conspirators and make them perform his biddings. Most importantly, Cassius turns Brutus, one of Caesar’s greatest friends, to his side through various creative tactics. Body 1: During the Feast of Lupercal, Cassius pulls Brutus aside to begin his manipulative plan. Cassius explains to Brutus that “Men are sometimes masters of their fates”.
Antony wants to cut what Caesar gave to his people, since he does not want to give all of that money and land. However, Anthony earlier had his speech praising Caesar for his will and his goodness. He uses the will to prompt the crowds in his favor, but does not actually follow up on what he says, and does not care about Caesar’s wishes. This shows that Antony’s speech and actions are not actually for Caesar, but for his own arrangements. Antony’s thirst for ultimate power also drives his desire to remove Brutus and Cassius, but does this by swaying the crowds to riot, driving them out of Rome, and causing a disastrous war with many deaths.
During this same conversation, Haemon argues that the people of Thebes themselves do not like the order for Antigone to die. King Creon quickly refutes that “[he is] king, and responsible only to [himself. ]” King Creon believes that he only needs to worry about himself. This shows that King Creon did not realize his full responsibility as king, both to his family and his people. King Creon was too prideful, and did not realize that he must honor the dead, and that he cannot kill his own family for doing it for him.
This would enable him to do bad things but still look good to the public. A hero would never do something like this. He is basically just tricking everybody into thinking that what he is doing is good. If he was a hero and not a robber baron he would actually help everybody in need and not hide the bad thing that he has done. For many reasons Andrew Carnegie was not a hero but a robber baron.
These two sides consist of Brutus and Cassius as the conspirators and Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus as the loyal ones to Caesar. The two sides battle it out at Philippi, which turns out to the the final resting place for Brutus and Cassius, who lose at the end.
