Brutus also has a position in the government of Rome. He also had many tragic flaws like one which is trusting others. He trusted the conspirators and even Mark Antony. Another one is that Brutus is very idealistic meaning if would have known the consequences of murdering Caesar would be, then Antony would not have had to talk to at the funeral. For example,“ Now let it work., Trouble you have begun - take whatever course you choose!” This would not have had to happen if Brutus would have known the consequences about Caesar. If he did then Antony would not have said those things at the
Brutus killed Caesar for the good of the citizens. He thought that Caesar would become too powerful. He thought if Caesar became too powerful that the power would get to his head and
Shakespeare's Julius Caesar puts the definition of honor and being honorable into a many of different perspectives. He makes the reader question who is and isn’t honorable. Was Brutus honorable, or Julius, or even Mark Antony? For me, the question has an obvious answer; Brutus was honorable and acted with respectable actions. He loved and looked after his country and had stopped at nothing to make sure that Rome was in the best state. In addition to his love of the country, he also had a love for the people. Brutus had given compassion to others, even going so far as to offer his life to please the people of Rome. He also had a firm sense of loyalty, even though his loyalty lied most to Rome. Even though Brutus had much internal conflict, I truly believe that Brutus is an honorable man.
Brutus is a central character who is good at heart. He has good intentions and values and only wants what is best for Rome. Cassius targets Brutus to be apart of his plan to kill Caesar and with his persuasive use of flattery he convinces Brutus that killing Caesar is what is best for rome. Not only that but Cassius presents
And while Brutus did work in part with other conspirators, which eventually led to him killing Caesar, he did it for a more morally sound reason which was that Caesar was going to cause the downfall of Rome because he was too ambitious, which is ironic because Caesar's death led to a string of unfit leaders, and civil unrest that eventually led to the downfall of the roman empire. Brutus was also focused on preventing corruption. “The name of Cassius honors this corruption,/ And chastisement doth therefore hide his head (IV.iii.15-6)...Remember March, the ides of March remember./ Did not great Julius bleed for justice' sake” (IV.iii.18-9). But in the end, Brutus felt he had not made an honorable use of Caesar’s death and realized he made a mistake so he took his own life, and unlike Cassius, he died an honorable death for honorable reasons. “This was the noblest Roman of them all./ All the conspirators save only he/ Did that they did in envy of great Caesar./ He only in a general honest thought/ And common good to all, made one of them”
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.
In Shakespeare 's’ The Tragedy Of Julius Caesar, one of the main characters, Marcus Brutus, is found dead by the noble Mark Antony, and is called “The Noblest Roman Of Them All” (Julius Caesar Act 5, scene 5, 68–72). Antony 's’ statement is a true one for many reasons. The first reason would be that Brutus was a man who valued his friendships over all else. He also always spoke with honesty, and was a truthful person. The last reason is because he loved Rome, and all of his decisions were based on his love for Rome. Brutus was truly a noble man, and although he made some wrong decisions, he tried his hardest to do what was best for the city that he loved more than himself.
Honor in the world gives people a reason to fight for the things that they believe in. Throughout The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Brutus has had to make many tough decisions that display the great honor within him. In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare's, it is made very obvious that Brutus is an honorable man.
Killing a close friend is a acutely steep offense, and Brutus did just that, seemingly without consulting other options. Instead of assassinating his friend, a wiser step would have been to discuss Caesar’s motives with Caesar. After all,
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. Brutus loves Caesar but knows he has to kill him for the good of rome. He says, “I know
If you believed that the only way to save your state was to kill one of your friends, would you? The character Brutus killed one of his friends in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar(JC) by William Shakespeare. Some people believe that he is a villain and only killed Caesar to keep his own power in the government. However many people think that he killed Julius Caesar to help prevent Rome from becoming dictatorship.
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, a Shakespearean play and representation of the assassination of Caesar, is a well written and developed story in which the build up of the characters is very well done. As a matter of fact, the developing of Brutus, the tragic hero on the play, is one of the most important characters and therefore one of the better explained and exposed. Brutus is a character that is marked with three traits that allow him to be the one responsible for Caesar's assassination. Indeed, Brutus is naive, well-intended and hypocrite, as seen when the conspirators convince him to be part of it, and be one of the most important figures in it.
In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare includes prophets, omens, and natural phenomenon that point to the tragic end of the three main characters: Julius Caesar, Marcus Brutus and Gaius Cassius. Writing a play based on such a well known historical event, Shakespeare’s audience would have known the outline of the events before entering the theater. Therefore, the inclusion of the omens would have served as a reminder for his audience. Though the omens suggest a sense of predetermination that would have satisfied the historical outlook of the audience, it is abundantly clear that it is the choices that those characters make that dooms them. Ultimately, Shakespeare suggests that it is the flaws of the main characters that leads
Have you ever felt your loneliest even when surrounded by those who claim to be your closest friends? Have you ever gotten that uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach when putting your trust in someone who has stood by your side for years? If Julius Caesar, would have paid attention to his surroundings, he might have lived to see another day. In spite of his friendship with Caesar, Marcus Brutus took it upon himself and the conspirators, to kill Caesar. In their eyes, they saw Caesar’s initiative to control Rome as disastrous for the well-being of the people. Due to Brutus’ strong love for Rome and the citizens, he was able to the manipulate many Romans into believing he had honorable intentions in assassinating Caesar. In order, to prove
While the reader has been led to believe in Brutus' strength of nobility, there is a touch of weakness in the self-delusion he must create before he can join the conspirators: Brutus feels that murder is wrong and so must find a way to justify his actions. It's not for personal reasons that he will do it, but for the general; that is, for the good of the people of Rome. He generalizes about the effects of power and ambition and anticipates the damage that Caesar will do when he gains the crown.
