Brutus’s character was easy to understand. Brutus is not a virtuous character, even though he has strict moral standards. He killed Julius Caesar, where at one point they were great friends. This proves that he is unloyal to his friends. All the major characters in the play were hungry for power, even Brutus had to capitulate at the opportunity.
In 1891, Irish author Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) observed “ Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion. In “The Tragedy Of Julius Caesar” the senators killed Caesar because they felt he was too ambitious. Brutus is supposed to be Caesar's “BFF” but he ends up stabbing him in the back. Brutus' decision to stab Caesar in the back wasn't an easy one.
The least honorable character of Julius Caesar is Decius because he lies to people oftentimes. According to the text, Decius tells Caesar that his wife’s nightmares mean nothing at all and that Caesar should still show up to the Senate. This is very unhonorable, as one should always tell the truth. Based on the text, Decius is the type to lie often. The evidence is showing that the more honorable characters never lie as much as Decius.
Antony adds this example to show that since Caesar denied the crown he is refusing to accept power, hard work, and authority. Thus making him an unambitious person. The second example of logos in the oration is when Antony states, “ When that the poor have cried Caesar hath wept” (III.ii.47). This statement is very logical of Antony since it connects the audience to Caesar wept for to the audience due to the fact that they aren’t the richest people in Rome. Through this connection the audience gets the implication that Caesar cared and had sympathy for them so his death was wrongful and savage.
It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing. He is unable to grow as a person for most of the story after due to his own inner struggles, but he does change his mind about and regret many things, like when he killed Gareth and Gaheris, “’You couldn't help it.' 'I could have helped it.' He was in his customary religious misery. 'It was my fault.'"
In the play of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Brutus and Mark Antony both write and deliver their own speeches after the assassination of Julius Caesar. Caesar was assassinated for the poor leader he seemed to be to the senators of Rome. Therefor Brutus delivered his speech first and loved Caesar but he loved Rome than he did Caesar. But in Mark Antony 's speech did not agree with Brutus because Antony loved Caesar more than he did Rome he also respected what Caesar was trying to do for Rome that others did not see. The speech of Mark Antony made the people of Rome feel frightened due to the reason he was assassinated.
Unfortunately, one occurrence that was universal among these widely diverse grouping was desertion. The sick or those thought to be sick were discarded, even children were not immune to this inhumane treatment. “This disaster had struck such fear into the hearts of men and women that brother abandoned brother…and – even worse, almost unbelievable – fathers and mothers neglected to tend and care for their children as if they were not their own” (203). Europe’s attitude became very much indifferent to the sick and dying, there was no religious or fate elements just simply self-preservation. These civilizations responded to their natural disasters in occurrence with how the lived as a society.
I loved reading the play "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar" it was full of DRAMA. It was about friendship,loyalty, and betrayal that got the whole play going. Caesar was assassinated by his good friend Brutus; therefore that was betrayal of a friend. The reason Brutus and some fellow people killed him was because they believed that he was going to be a tryant, which was a person that takes control of everything, and would not want to share power. Each Person in the crime to kill Caesar stabbed him in the chest; therefore killing him.
While tragedy cause nothing but heartaches. The answer is sample, the road to success comes with tragedy. In the Death of a Salesman, one man spends his whole life searching for success. But the only things he finds is tragedy. The idea of success consumes him, that he not only thats to believe that he lies are real but that the lies also affects his whole family.
