The reason for the choice is that Brutus has a high standing in the Roman society, and the people are more likely to listen to what he says. In Act 1 Scene II, Cassius tries to find out Brutus’ position with regard to the rising power of Caesar. When he concludes that Brutus does not like the dictatorship, he talks highly of Brutus and his ancestors with a view to enlist his co-operation for the venture. At the end of the discussion, which shows signs of Brutus’ wish to support the work to be undertaken, and after he leaves the scene, this is what Cassius says to himself: “Well, Brutus, thou art noble;”. Act I Scene II Mark Antony too confirms this opinion about Brutus when he says: “That Nature might stand up and say “‘This was a man!’”.
Betrayal and Persuasion Betrayal 04 1. Which speech was more persuasive? Explain your answer. I think Antony’s speech is a lot more persuasive then Brutus’s because he used more persuasive elements. He is making the audience conclude things by what he saying.
The rhetorical devices used in Brutus’s great speech offer tricks that we find in many great political speeches. For example, “believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour”. Brutus repeatedly refers to himself, wanting to persuade the crowd that because he is an honorable man, what he did was right. He also praises Caesar, which makes it okay in the eyes of the audience. We see this now when a politician will amend his opponent, even though he has devastated him just previously, this is ethos.
This new language seems to show the sincerity of the king and his part of humanity he didn't show before. At the beginning, Richard believes that his speech is power, and language is powerful in the political sense. Later, once Richard is no longer king and his words don't have any political power, he manages to make language powerful in a different sense: his words are more moving and poetic. But does the audience feel sympathy for Richard as he changes? Act I is very important to set the play and the situation.
Here, George has a valid, enforceable contract and should be put in the position he would be in had the contract been fully performed.

"Why, there was a crown offered him: and being offered him, he put it by with the back of his hand" (I,II). Caesar's act was served to satisfy the citizens of Rome but he knew his power and authority was limitless. Rome will always be persuaded by Caesar because Caesar has ultimate authority. Brutus is using logos to convince Rome that the death of Caesar was for their good. Brutus is using an example of anaphora to convince the people

"Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more."-Brutus. Brutus was a patriot because he was just doing what he thought was right. His friends told him it had to be done because Cesar was not a fit ruler, Brutus did it because he loved his homeland. He was trying to do good, Brutus was a patriot. Brutus thought Cearser would become a dictator and ultimately lead to the fall of Rome.
The most contradictory figure of speech used is the phrase “For Brutus is an honorable man” which is repeated many times throughout the text. By saying this, Antony at first seems that he is justifying the crime and showing that it was legitimate. This one sentence however is the key to turning around the crowd because the repeated phrase scales up the sarcasm with each time it is repeated. This one repeated phrase creates the doubt in the people’s minds which will change everything. In order to give reason to his point of view Antony needs to give proof of Caesar’s moderate ambition.
We can then ask, what can we learn from the rhetorical devices of Aristotle in responding to today's advertisements and commercials? However broad these changes may seem to the modern day audience, it is important to 2 show how the classical methodology of effecting persuasion is relevant today. Aristotle states the three means of effecting persuasion are “ (1) to reason logically, (2) to understand human character and goodness in various forms, and (3) to understand the emotions...” (25).
