This certainly gives the movie more trustworthiness because its easier for the spectators trust the previous trainers opinion, because they are sharing their experience. in Julius Caesar, during Mark Antonys speech, his first line of the speech is the most persuasive in the usage of ethos “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!” This shows how he demands to tell the people of Rome in a hospitable way. Moreover, there was usage of rhetorical irony when Antony throughout his speech was continuously saying “And Brutus is an honorable man.” This questioning was aimed to see the ethos of Brutus Now comparing pathos which is the appeal to
This has shown that if one can be manipulated too easily, it can cause for some serious problems and consequences. Brutus is such an easy example because his devout loyalty to Rome and the simple fact that he would do anything for Rome leaves him open to numerous chances of manipulation. Shakespeare then proceeds to use Caesar to show that someone high and mighty can sometimes get so caught up in everything, and themselves, that they do not see the consequences of their actions and choose to believe and not believe what they want. The Romans are then the epitome of being easily manipulated. Manipulation is everywhere; it is a part of everyone 's lives and always will
Cassius likes having everything his way while Brutus cares and loves for his country, Rome. Brutus is best described as friendly, caring, and very loving for his country, Rome. It’s not because Brutus disliked Caesar that he decided to be part of the assassination it was more because he cared and loved his country a lot more “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more” (III.II.23-240). Brutus was afraid that the people would chose Caesar as their king and that Caesar would turn into a tyrant ruler.
But not all in Rome loved Caesar. Some loved him, some hated him, but such is the life of a prominent leader. Caesar was a very progressive leader, as he worked to break down social boundaries within the vast empire, all the while expanding Roman territory. He demonstrated great prowess and strategy in battle, as well as skilled in rhetoric and oration and governing. He also introduced Rome’s calendar, the namesake Julian calendar.
Within Antony’s speech to the Romans he uses anaphoric text to spike a whirl of rage towards Brutus. Repeatedly Antony states “Brutus is an honorable man” emphatically for the duration of his speech to contradict Brutus’s nobility ( March Antony, Lines 83,88,95 ). Before Antony begins his speech he is approached by the Romans with comments to not speak bad on Brutus’s name, which is why he utilized the anaphora to repeat that Brutus is an honorable man therefore allowing him to gain the Romans trust to speak. Antony does not say these lines truthfully but sarcastically to make the people of Rome feel furious against Brutus for taking Caesar to his mortal death.
Brutus speaks first and appeals to ethos. He says, “Believe me for mine honor” in (III.ii, 15,16) . By this he means that people should listen to him and believe whatever he says because he has reputation as an honorable man. By him being a honorable man he thinks everyone should trust him.
Ethos uses persuasion based on the fact that the speaker is a good, upstanding person. Brutus begins his speech with ethos by saying, “...believe me for mine honor…” Antony then uses ethos by saying to the the citizens of Rome in his speech, “He was my friend, faithful, and just to me…” talking about Caesar being a loyal friend to him. Even though ethos is mainly about the speaker, there is a lot of pathos used in this work.
My good men, today we recommend to you the great and most honorable Brutus. This man is the crisp and proud picture of what it means to be a roman. He speaks with intelligence to friend and foe alike. HIs silver tongue can hold throngs of people with his voice, as you all fully experienced at Caesar's
The play, Julius Caesar, makes of honor as accepting self-responsibility and wrongdoing towards Brutus, Portia, and Antony’s actions, intentions, and values. Marcus Brutus was a close colleague of Julius Caesar, who had recently risen in power after killing Pompey. In Act 1, Scene 2, Brutus is
First, Brutus uses ethos to justify that his “love to Caesar was no less than his” (III.ii.19). This manipulates the Plebeians into believing he and Caesar have a strong relationship. It also brings the Plebeians compassion and lets them know there is love between them even in his death. Pathos is also used by Brutus to honour Caesar through “tears for his love, joy for his fortune, honour for/ his valour, and death for his ambition.” (III.ii,27-28).
Mark Antony Over Marcus Brutus One can see as they read through Mark Antony’s and Marcus Brutus’ speeches, that they left a major effect on the crowd at Julius Caesar’s funeral. The varied reactions out of the crowd were based on the rhetoric these two characters illustrate. They both exercised parts of ethos, pathos, and logos. Mark Antony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral had more effect on the people of Rome.
Antony vs. Brutus The death of Julius Caesar- renowned military dictator and statesman will be forever remembered. He was brutally murdered by his best friend, Brutus and fellow congressmen. The conspiracy follows out through his funeral where Brutus and his adoptive son, Antony speak upon his death. After carefully analyzing the speeches, one may say Antony did a better job due to his message, use of rhetoric, a rhetorical fallacies.
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.
Marc Antony and Brutus are both great at speaking to crowds. The crowd liked Brutus the best at first but by the end of the act they hated him and liked Antony. The reason the crowd liked Antony the best was because he knew how to persuade them and he knew how to turn them against Brutus. They also liked how he talked good about Brutus and how he talked about Caesar’s will.
