On several accounts, Caesar acted contemptuous towards the supporters of the republic and many senators took this as an insult to their dignity, which resulted stronger resentment to form a conspiracy against him. “Caesar was showing a constantly increasing scorn for republican institutions. The republic he was quoted as saying, was but a name without substance or form.” Caesar simply did not respect the republic as a functioning system of government, but instead considered that the government structure was barely in existence. He simply believed that the senate, the tribune, and any other republic institution was inferior to his
They would consider him a bad man because he would have done so many bad things if he were crowned at the ceremony. The conspirators make this plan so that Caesar does not get crowned. They were scared that he would become a dictator, if this were to happen he would have been a harsh and strict as a ruler. The conspirators were all ready to assassinate Caesar because they did not want the horrible dictatorship.
Even though Caesar ruled as an absolute ruler he had created many reforms and did a lot to help the poor (McDougal 161) but in the end he was killed because he was seen as having too much power for ruling a republic. It was Antony who fought for the fate of Rome with Octavian. Antony, as Caesar's successor, would have strived to rule just like him, but it was because of Antony’s loss of power in the end that led to Octavian becoming Rome’s first emperor. It was also Antony’s actions of having an affair with Cleopatra the led to the end of the Second Triumvirate and a Roman civil
Obligations have been around since the beginning of time, so how have people progressed this idea over time into something where we can deceive others with it? There were three main ways people deceived others from what they really were. The first was by putting others before themselves in their own Universe of Obligation, acting trustworthy as the second way, and the third being to act differently than anyone could have ever depicted. The Universe of Obligation demonstrates the relationship between who we really are and how we present ourselves by changing how we view the things we feel obligated to. Some people helped others in order to get something out of it for themselves.
Take Pompey for example, he threatened his power and Caesar not only went and killed him but also his sons. Some people may or may not know this but Caesar’s daughter, Julia Caesar, was married to Pompey and so him and Caesar were related. In Act I Scene ii he says to Antony that Cassius has a “lean and hungry look.” This goes to show that Caesar doesn’t trust some people even by the looks of them.
Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic. Brutus loves caesar but doesn't want him to become king. Brutus doesn't have a personal reason to kill Caesar but for the good of Rome he has to. The country of rome would fall to Caesar if he became king because he is corrupt.
I believe that Mark Antony gave more of a persuasive speech because Antony and Caesar were friends, he sounded like he actually cared about Caesar and that he actually wanted to tell people about Caesar and how good of a guy he was. Always, I think Mark Antony speech is better than Brutus’s because Antony actually put effort into his speech about Caesar when Brutus was one of the persons who killed Caesar. So that shows that Brutus really didn’t care about Caesar. “Men have become brutish beasts and lost their reason.”
Marc Antony’s power has always been a part of him. However, after Caesar’s death, his power only intensified as his passion for vengeance grew. An example of Antony using his power with words to his advantage was when he beseeched the conspirators to believe that he would remain loyal to them and their cause. Antony says:
Although Caesar’s death is very controversial, this event was going to be necessary for the future. The death of Julius Caesar was beneficial for Rome. If Caesar had not died many of the commoners, citizens and plebeians would not get a say in government policies. In the text, Brutus said, “ Not that I lov’d Caesar less, but that I lov’d Rome more.
Tiberius or Tiberius Claudius Nero was born on November 16, 42 B.C.E. and died on March 16, 37 A.D, he was the son of Livia, wife of the first Roman emperor, Augustus. Although Tiberius was adopted by Augustus, if there was any other alternative to the throne Tiberius would have been overlooked. After Tiberius became emperor himself, he established the concept of a ruler as god and improved the Roman economy, though his erratic behavior made him unpopular with citizens and the senate. Tiberius was a very capable military leader and a sensible civic leader who tried to restrain the budget, but he was severe and unpopular. He is known for treason trials, sexual perversion, and shirking his responsibility by going into isolation.

In the story, “Killing Caesar,” by Jon Herman, different viewpoints are shown towards how others see Caesar as a leader. “To the people, Caesar was more god than man,” and, “He was too dangerous and tyranny must not stand,” show the two viewpoints: a tyrant or a hero.

In Shakespeare’s play “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar,” there are many uses of prophets, omens, and natural phenomenon to display rising tensions among characters and to show signs of destiny. This results in casualties for several characters, but for others, there is a sign of hope and good luck. Many of them have their futures in their hands, but incorrect choices made their outcome take a wrong turn. Two characters that can control their own future are Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus. One character that has his fate predetermined by his actions and attitude is Cassius.
