I would not Cassius, yet I love him well..Set honour in one eye and death I'th' other And I will look on both indifferently.." This shows that Brutus is indecisive of Caesar and is unfazed by Cassius's attempt to manipulate him to conspire against Caesar. Cassius has clearly shown of his distaste for Caesar from Scene 2, he is easily viewed
3) Walt hates everyone; he really is not a complete racist, because he just hates everyone. So yes, the movie plays around with the racial thing but it becomes more a movie that deals with vigilant justice. Walt demonstrates that he can eventually get along with the Hmong neighbors. At one point in the movie, he even says, “I get along more with theses gooks than I do my own family” (Gran Torino). To society that would seem like it was all about a racial issue it more seems like Walt is just a grumpy old man looking for someone to understand his values in life.
Shakespeare presents conflicting perspectives about the event as both an act of brutal murder and an act for the greater good of rome in Act 3 Scene 1. Shakespeare uses Brtuu’s perspective to religiously justify the act, conveyed through the highly symbolic imagery “let us bathe our hands in caesars blood up to our elbows”. This graphic action on stage is highly confronting for his audience, encouraging them to question the reasoning behind the assassination. This is immediately followed by Anotony’s soliloquy; here he is positioned on stage with caesars body, a prop which allows him to maniulate the crowd to transgress from Brutus perspective of the killing as a divine sacrifice to ac act of meaningless butchery. He undermines Brutus, conveyed through his lamenting tone “thou art the ruins of the noblest man” to further challanege the perspective that caesars thirst for power was a threat to the roman republic.
You’?ve been stubborn and unfamiliar with me, your friend who loves you.|Cassius to Brutus| Cicero| ? ?A unambitious senator|Indeed, it’?s a strange time. But men tend to interpret things however suits them and totally miss the actual meaning of the things themselves. Is Caesar visiting the Capitol tomorrow?|Cicero to Casca| Cinna| ? ?A man of group of Cassius|Yes, they are.
He hath brought many captives home to Rome whose ransoms did the general coffers fill: Did this in Caesar seem ambitious? When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Ambition should be made of sterner stuff: Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is a honourable man. By this it shows that Antony is intelligent and has courage for he mocks Brutus and his accusations. And it shows how he can manipulate the crowd by telling of Caesars wonderful accomplishments. Antony then shows his anger towards the conspirators by getting the mob to release their anger by rioting and going out and killing the conspirators.
Peter shows how he hates work, so the key to his happiness is just not going. Although he Peter was all for his own happiness, Milton began to think in a similar further into the film. This caused the two characters to butt heads. Milton told Peter he would not turn down his radio volume, basically just because it made him happy. A line from Self Reliance by Emerson tells that “their rage is decorous and prudent, for they are timid, as being vulnerable themselves.” Milton’s lack of timidity helped him gain his personal happiness therefore exemplifying transcendentalism.
Yet while Caesar may not be unduly power-hungry, he does possess his share of flaws. He is unable to separate his public life from his private life, and, seduced by the populace’s increasing idealization and idolization of his image, he ignores ill omens and threats against his life, believing himself as eternal as the North Star. Antony - A friend of Caesar. Antony claims allegiance to Brutus and the conspirators after Caesar’s death in order to save his own life. Later, however, when speaking a funeral oration over Caesar’s body, he spectacularly persuades the audience to withdraw its support of Brutus and instead condemn him as a traitor.
In consideration of this, Brutus appears increasingly benighted as he attempts to exonerate himself of guilt during the time preceding Caesar’s death. Brutus’ ignorance would lead us to believe that ambition is a capital crime. All through this play, the villainous act of murder is portrayed as mercy killing, while Caesar is sacrificed for the sake of his aspiration to control Rome. In conclusion, the
Brutus is an honerable man.... the words chosen by Mark Anthony in William Shakespeare's popular play "Julius Caesar." Anthony starts the speech off speaking how Brutus just explained how Caesar was an ambitious man which is why he was murdered. Anthony argues with that stating how Caesar gave to the needy when they needed, "When the poor has cried, Caesar has wept." Following this statement he mocks Brutus saying, "But Caesar was ambitious, and Brutus is an honorable man." After that was all stated he reminded the people how Carsar did turn down the kings crown multiple times, "I thrice presented him a kinlgy crown, Which he did thrice refuse."
Brutus – “Have all true rites and lawful ceremonies. It shall advantage more than do us wrong.” Cassius demonstrates his profound mistrust for Antony as he does not believe that Antony bears good-will for them which juxtaposes to what Brutus perceives of him, where Brutus indicates that Antony will be a great addition to their cause. Brutus Cassius – “Ay, every man away. Brutus shall lead, and we will grace his heels with the most
