Because of this unexpected outcome, Brutus gives a speech explaining why he did what he did. He tells the people of Rome how he thought Caesar was too dangerous and ambitious to be the leader of Rome, a city he loved too much to watch it be destroyed. At first this seems to work for him. Then, Mark Antony comes in and completely destroys the perfect image of himself that Brutus put into the Roman’s heads. Antony ends up telling all of the Romans of the lies that Brutus and Cassius are full of.
When Brutus’ speech occurs, Shakespeare utilizes rhetorical questions, pathos, and tone in order to suggest that Caesar was too ambitious and could possibly enslave the citizens of Rome so he should be killed , which proves Oscar Wilde’s claim that disobedience is a valuable human trait and that it does promote social progress. This text is important because Caesar made a big impact on people and his closest friends turned their back on him. Without Julius Caesar, the world would not be what it is today. Caesar helped shape Rome into a great international power with a profound influence on the world. His military exploits led to the incorporation of new lands and people under the umbrella of
Brutus acknowledges that this is due to the triumvirate orders. Brutus is making an analogy to robbing bees. He is saying that from that action, Antony has left the conspirators defenseless, without support. They have as much as bees without honey or buzzing. He also states that Antony has made a wise decision in doing so, because he weakens their forces right before attacking.
Is it justified to kill someone because they have gained too much power and are going to use it for the worse? Brutus has a very bad circumstance on his hands, he can kill Caesar and possibly be executed for his actions or he can let Caesar become king and watch Rome fall. There are many reasons why Brutus should and should not join the conspiracy. Brutus says, “I know no personal reason to spurn at him But for the general.” (II,i,11). Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic.
The last words spoken by Julius Caesar were “Et tu Brute? Then fall, Caesar!” These words resonate the feelings of disbelief and betrayal Julius Caesar felt the moment his trusted friend and fellow roman, Brutus came out from the shadows of his fellow conspirators to assassinate him. Though Brutus was an honorable person his flaws caused both himself and Caesar to succumb to brutal deaths. The decision by Brutus to commit this act of mutiny upon Caesar was immoral. Due to it being ultimately pointless to save the republic and, it being made out of arrogance and gullibility from Brutus.
Large portions of the rulers and rulers of his day were degenerate. By composing Macbeth, Shakespeare was attempting to demonstrate a point about how abusing power prompts debasement. At the point when Macbeth gets to be Thane of Cawdor he understands all the force he could have. For instance, Macbeth says, "My dangerous believed is still just fanciful yet it shakes my whole masculinity so profoundly that my energy to act is covered by desire, and nothing appears to be genuine to be with the exception of what I imagine. "(Act 1
Shakespeare does this mainly to show that being confident is good and virtuous, but that arrogance causes many problems and is best if just left alone. Arrogance is not the only cause of Caesar’s death, but it is Brutus’s justification. Cassius is arrogant and that is part of the whole plot to kill Caesar in the first place. These are just some of the examples of this motif in the
Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision since his reasoning to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.
As simple as the characters were, the situations arousing in the play became more complexed as scenes passed by. What led to the trouble and chaos in the play also led to the solution in the end, when Claudio and Don Pedro were deceived into thinking by Don John that Hero was unfaithful. That very same idea also solved the problem in the end when Leonato, Hero’s father, deceived Claudio by making him believe that she is dead and that it is his duty to clear Hero’s name by reading out on her tomb and marrying the said niece who looks just like Hero. Again the plotting against own is present where the said niece turns out to be Hero and she comes back to life again. Shakespeare, no doubt, solves almost
Many think that following the crowd is the way to go, saying that the crowd appears for a reason. Though rarely does this result in following personal moral values. Mark Twain states that, “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority it’s time to pause and reflect”. In the texts of To Kill a Mocking bird and Julius Caesar majorities did not take the time to reflect on their actions and acted on ever so changing emotions. The plebeians are blinded by anger against the conspirators causing chaos to Rome letting their anger get the best of them.
