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.
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.
In this scene Antony presents a “kingly” crown to Caesar, at which he declines all three times. 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.
Equality wept because the people in the old society did not know that there was a word for themselves, not we, but I. Nextly, Equality abhorred the old society’s rules. In the old society he had to love everyone, even he
(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. '
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.
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.
How would you persuade the common people to support the correct cause? During this time in Act 3 of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, Caesar was recently assassinated by Brutus and other conspirators. Brutus first delivered a speech to try and gain people on his side, and Antony followed. Antony's speech was the most effective because he appeals to the peoples emotions and uses evidence. The first reason why Antony's speech was the most effective was because it appealed to the audience's emotions.
Oscar Wilde once said that “a thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.” This statement proved to be true in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Caesar was well loved by the people of Rome until, one day when, Cassius and Brutus decided he would be dangerous to Rome and killed him. In the play, we see a struggle between Brutus as he stands in the middle of the cross fire undecided of killing Caesar or not. We also see Cassius trying to convince Brutus to take action against Caesar later leading to Brutus trying to convince himself Caesar must die.
The Better Speech “A speech should not be just be a sharing of information, but a sharing of yourself.” This quote by Ralph Archbold is relevant in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar when Brutus and Antony spoke to the people of Rome, after Caesar’s death. Although Brutus was an honorable man, his speech did not get the outcome he wanted. Antony was very cunning, concise and used pathos to influence the people of Rome. Overall, Antony knew beforehand how to manipulate the crowd with his speech more than Brutus.
There are a lot of different themes that could be used to describe the play of Julius Caesar. Power is a big part of the play and is probably the best theme of it. Throughout the play, power has a big impact on the story line and the way the story goes. It is evident to the conspirators that Julius Caesar is headed for absolute power; he becomes a threat to the ideals and values of the Roman Republic. They assassinate Caesar before he can be crowned king.
Brutus and Antony speak in Caesar's funeral, they use ethos, pathos, and logos to get their point across. With the use of the pathos, logos, and ethos Brutus gets the attention of the commoners. He asks the commoners if what he is going to say is going to offend them, if it does he asks of them to leave there and they all tell Brutus no. Antony speaks before Brutus and gets his point across but fails at his point and just gets the crowd thinking. Brutus than uses his speech techniques to win over the commoner’s ears to listen to him.
