However, Brutus wasn’t the only part of the killing of Caesar he was an accomplice along with Cassius and Casca, so he had some people who felt the same as Brutus. You could see that Brutus was a man with good morals because he didn’t want to kill Antony because he wanted the death of Caesar to be a sacrifice to the gods and not a blood bath. Antony didn’t take the death of his beloved friend well and was determined to avenge the death of
I think that Brutus is the most honorable character in the play and by far I think that Cassius is the least honorable character in the play. First off is why I think that Brutus is an honorable man. I think that he is honorable because Caesar was one of his better friends and helped kill him for the good of Rome. When he was fighting for what he thought was right for Rome he got word that his wife Portia had killed herself by swallowing hot coals. Instead of giving up and mourning over his wife he acts like it doesn’t bother him at all and continues to fight.
Hamlet is wrong because he gets himself killed and he was not in his right mind. His conscience did not kill him but it sure helped kill him because he wanted to act tough and not back down. An example is ophelia kills herself after going into madness because of hamlet. Hamlet was not only hurting/killing himself he was also hurting the others around him too. He drove claudius into paranoidness because claudius was scared that he was going to kill him and hamlet did succeed but he also died too, an eye for an eye.
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.
Did you all not cheer for him after he defeated Pompey? He is the reason Rome is so great, and now he is gone. Brutus claimed to have killed Caesar because of his ambition, but was this the real reason? Was Caesar actually ambitious? During the
When Caesar first started to get power with three other people but he killed one of them to get the solo power of Rome. Caesar betrayed another leader to get power which was just one of his flaws but, Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and he demonstrates it consistently in Acts 1-3. In Act 1 Caesar first starts to show not only his arrogance but,
The Death of Julius Caesar In William Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar”, Caesar is stabbed to death by a group of conspirators. There are many reasons as to why Caesar is killed but it ultimately comes down to two main reasons. Caesar is killed because the conspirators want him dead and he is very arrogant, this proves that bad things happen too self centered dishonorable people. One reason the conspirators want Julius Caesar dead is because they believe Caesar thinks he is better than everyone else. “I was born free as Caesar; so were you: / We both have fed as well, and we can both endure the winter’s cold as well as he.” Another reason why the conspirators want Julius Caesar dead is because they believe Caesar won 't be a good
He tries to convince people that what was done is good. Brutus is the most despicable character in Julius Caesar because join the conspirators with their plot and kill his friends Caesar. Brutus is the most most despicable because he kill his very own friend Caesar he is very shocked. When the other conspirators stab Caesar with their knives he the last one to
Brutus said, “Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men?”, along with “But, as he was ambitious, I slew him,” in his speech to the many people questioning the reason for Caesar’s death. Unfortunately the people followed him like sheep and believed what he had to say. It didn’t take much for these people to be convinced that a great man turned bad making his death justified. It just goes to show how true the quote really is. The people, who once loved Caesar greatly, instantly forgot all he has done to help Rome and just accepted the lies.
However, Hamlet thought Claudius is behind the arras, so he kills him (Polonius) directly. After Polonius, the conflict between Gertrude and Hamlet became fiercer and Hamlet lost himself more. From the personal view, Polonius’s death is one of the victims in this revenge, but this is also what he deserves because he used to be the Old King’s councillor whereas he is helping Old King’s murder to hurt Old King’s son. He is smart but he is not loyal, therefore, he died in the right path. After that, Polonius’s daughter, Ophelia died.
Caesar is killed by conspirators who wanted freedom, liberty, and democracy. Though Caesar had ruled well, he wanted to be crowned and was ambitious. Caesar was killed because he was the one whose “abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power” (2.1.18, 19). But Brutus thought that “when he once attains the upmost round, he then unto the ladder turns his back” (2.1.24, 25). But Caesar loved the Romans according to what Antony spoke about Caesar 's death, “when that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept” (3.2.89).
Brutus killed Caesar for personal reasons rather than for the emolument of Rome. Caesar was a good man that cared about Rome and did what he could for the people. The senators and Brutus were jealous that Caesar was so well liked. This envy lead to malice toward Caesar that ended with his downfall. How could someone that cared so much for the people of Rome have such ill intent
Julius Caesar was a tyrant after he defeated Pompey, but then some of his closest friends, including Brutus, Cassius, Casca, and Cinna, brutally murdered him. The only one there who had real motive was none other than Cassius. He was the one who convinced Brutus to join the conspiracy, he came up with the whole plan on how to kill Caesar, and he just generally didn’t like how Caesar was godlike in the Roman’s eyes. Cassius knew that for the mutiny to work, they needed Brutus. Brutus had a lot of influence among the Romans because he was Caesar’s right hand man.
Instead of abandoning them and taking their supplies to kill them, he just did it to benefit himself. Either way, they would’ve died, and he would’ve deserved his death. General MacArthur: He “deliberately sent his wife’s lover, Arthur Richmond, to his death.” Here is another case where the person didn’t kill someone themselves, but caused their death intentionally. He sent Richmond because he knew that anyone who went would be killed, and therefore technically commit murder. If he believes Richmond should have died for doing something to him, then he deserves his death because he did something to someone else as well.
He explains that has Caesar had to die for his ambition and since he loved Rome more than he loved Caesar it was his duty to kill him. He also states that he is sad that Caesar had to die but that he would prefer him dead rather than have the people of Rome as slaves. He finally says that he will kill himself when his country is in need of his death. In the end of the story he does kill himself therefore he was true to his
