Brutus in the story Julius Caesar, shows that he is the better man by him being patriotic about his home place in Rome. In page 952 line 21-22, it says “not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more.” -Brutus. This shows that Brutus loved his country sometimes more than
Line 264-66). Pathos is shown as Antony provokes how important Caesar was to the Roman Empire and all he has done for his town, stirring the crowds’ perspectives through the sympathy he speaks across. Antony finishes this quote with spreading gratefulness to the crowd, and how hard it will be for them to find a leader as inspiring
His speech was powerful, but not powerful enough. Not soon after, Mark Antony as made a great speech. He uses his words to completely change the crowd and they begin to follow him instead of Brutus. One debater, from Debate.org, argued that words depend on weapons for anything to be done. To an extent, this may be true but it is words that control the weapons.
At Julius Caesar’s funeral, Antony questions the credibility of the conspirators and along with that, he expresses his love and admiration for Caesar. He then goes on to say,” he was my friend, faithful and just to me, but Brutus says he was ambitious, And Brutus is an honorable man”(Act 3, Sc.1, Ln.13-15). In this statement it is prevalent that from the beginning Antony’s motivation is to persuade the crowd to bring justice to Caesar’s murder and preserve the greatness of Rome. Then, Antony questions the judgement of the commoners as they had loved and respected Caesar and when his death came, they turned their backs on him. “What cause withholds you, then, to mourn for him?- O judgement, thou art fled to brutish beasts, and men have lost their reason!--Bear with me; my heart is in the coffin there with Caesar.
Brutus was a close friend to Caesar, and he didn’t kill Caesar because he didn’t like him. He did love Caesar, but his love for Rome was stronger and he didn’t want Caesar to ruin the great city he had even said “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves.” (III.ii). Brutus thought that Caesar was too ambitious and that would have ruined Rome, so he wanted the best for the citizens of Rome and killed Julius Caesar.
People agreed and supported him ,steps down he tells the Roman citizens to stay and listen to Marc Anthony ,who arrives with Caesar 's body. Anthony calms the crowd. down and begins his speech agreeing with Brutus , and then cry 's out ( his ambition) and calls the conspirators Honorable Men. starts to persuade the people by saying that the conspirators committed an act of brutality toward ceasar and we 're traitors. Anthony spoke to the emotions of the crowd by crying and talking about all the good things that Caesar did for Rome in a persuasive tone there 's a major difference between the two speeches Brutus was very honorable and Anthony was very persuasive and smart ,Brutus was Honorable in a way that he always told the people the truth ,his speech was real short to the point and spoke to the logic of the people in the crowd for example .Brutus spoke in a dettach way about Caesar 's death .
Brutus continuously mentions that Caesar was ambitious. In his famous quote he says, “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but, as he was ambitious, I slew him.” Brutus uses the repetition of ambitious to emphasize the conspirator 's reason for murdering Caesar. By repeating the word “ambitious” he makes sure that the audience knew exactly why Caesar had to be killed. This helps to create the specific effect of justifying the conspirator 's actions because it gives the audience a solid reason for why Caesar was dangerous.
Antony’s manipulative behavior intensified during this scene as he attempted to persuade Brutus into allowing him to speak at Caesar’s funeral, which had major consequences later in the act. Another group that Marc Antony successfully persuaded was the citizens of Rome. After the citizens praised Brutus for his honorable speech, Marc Antony presented Caesar’s body to the crowd, revealing each fatal stab wound that shattered the beloved Caesar. Antony’s crying and speech about Caesar’s accomplishments appealed to the citizens’ sympathy, which later escalated into anger. He used his strength of public speaking to convince the crowd that his intentions were in their favor.
The noble Brutus … He was my friend,faithful and just to me.” (III.ii.78-86). In this quote, Antony is using a pathos approach and trying to gain sympathy of the crowd by saying Julius Caesar did not deserve to die and that he was a good man. Also several times during the speech he uses the phrase, “And Brutus is an honorable man.”
In Antony’s speech, a sentimental appeal is used in order to persuade the Romans by manipulating their emotions to feel pity for Caesar. Brutus, before he stabbed Caesar, was one of the latter’s closest friends, and Antony does not hesitate to mention this in his speech. He explains the intimacy between Brutus and Caesar, and how much the victim loved the convict. In order to really rub it in how Brutus betrayed Caesar, Antony describes, “This was the most unkindest cut
A counterclaim that is encountered with this subject may be describing how Shakespeare 's work is outdated and how the stories were just stories. These points are not important to the argument because they are not valid against the claims of how Shakespeare can give the present day a view of the past, and how he still affects many people today. In conclusion, I believe that reading Shakespeare today should still be allowed in education. Shakespeare permits the present day to perceive life from the past, his work still affects people and peoples opinions today, and his work is a strong basis of what other literate professionals reference
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).
Augustus was a extremely well known figure in history and that is because he was known for the “[p]eace within the empire [that] was counted [as] the greatest blessing,” (192.) He was always concerned with the welfare of the people, the laws of Rome, and the fact that power should not be flaunted around. This highlights Augustus’ strong points as an emperor of Rome, and all the things he did for Rome that changed it
This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire. Since the Romans did not like that title of king, “he received the title Augustus by decree of the senate.” During his reign, Caesar accomplish countless things, which is why he is still talked highly about to this day. He repaired the conduits of aqueducts, dozens of temples, and completed the Julian forum and the basilica. He did these things because, like Qin, he loved and truly cared about his empire and wanted to see it flourish and restored; not broken and destroyed.
A man such as Caesar would have been good for Rome, but his premature death stunted the growth of what Rome could have been. Caesar would have never been killed if it weren’t for Brutus and his selfish ways. 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.
