Antony then said that he did that in friendship and loved them all. But he wanted to know why they killed Caesar and why he was dangerous. Brutus told him that if he wasn’t dangerous they wouldn’t of killed him and that he would approve of their reason. Antony told Brutus that he wanted to speak at Caesar’s funeral and of course Brutus, trusting Antony and not thinking he would do anything to get the people on Caesar’s side, let him speak on Caesar’s behalf. Brutus told Antony to get Caesar’s body ready for the funeral and all of the men left the room except for Antony.
Before Act3 Scene 2 Mark Anthony seems like a bit of a coward and Caesar’s puppet, he lacks confidence as he seems to always agree with Caesar and gives the impression that he doesn’t take life seriously, loves partying and envoy’s the company of women. Not something a brave roman would do in those days. This could have been an act for it most certainly saved his life as Cassius would have had him killed with Caesar but for Brutus who underestimated him and refers to him “he can do….head is off”, (Act,2,sc1,.182:183) where Brutus believes Anthony to be useless without Caesar. Anthony proves to be very clever in the moments after Caesars death and very sneakily convinces the conspirators
Julius Caesar dismissed the multiple warnings to beware the Ides of March. Consequently, a group of conspirators sent daggers through the body of the ancient Roman leader. All these conspirators conspired and executed their plan due to selfish and jealous motives, excluding the play’s tragic hero. In William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Brutus fulfills the role of the tragic hero because he possesses qualities of a good person, and he has a sense of commitment. Through words and actions William Shakespeare paints the picture that Brutus is a virtuous individual who believes in and stands by certain moral traits.
But Caesar really loved Rome that anything happened in Rome good or bad affected him. Like Antony said “When the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept Ambition should be made of sterner stuff. In other words Antony is just saying that Caesar really loved and cared about Rome no matter what. Lastly in Act 3 Scene 2 Mark Antony has now seen the assassination of his dear beloved Caesar and he wants to say a speech at his funeral. But in order to do this he must get in the good graces of the conspirators; therefore Rome can know what happen to their beloved Caesar.
• “O Julius Caesar, thou art might yet” – said by Brutus when he finds his friends killed by the army of Antony and Lepidus. • “This was the noblest Roman of them all” – said by Antony when he finds Brutus dead. • “So call the field, and let’s away / To part the glories of this happy day.” – said by Lepidus as he ends the play. PERSPECTIVES OF CHARACTERS Brutus: At first, he does not commit to Cassius’ conspiracy to assassinate Caesar. He is convinced by letters written by Cinna that the civilians of Rome request him to prevent Caesar from gaining power.
Along with depicting Gauls and Germans as bloodthirsty barbarians, he also used his own soldiers to stir emotions in his readers. He would never use the word soldiers, or “milites,” in Latin, to describe his men. Instead he would always refer to them as “our men.” This would stir most Romans that read it because of the intense atmosphere of nationalism present throughout most of Rome’s history. Another way he used pathos was by making the leaders of other peoples seem evil. In his first book he talked of Orgetorix and the Helvetii.
This is Brutus’ philosophy when he convinces theconspirators not to kill Antony. “Our course will seem too bloody, Caius Cassius, to cut the headoff and then hack the limbs, like wrath in death and envy afterwards; for Antony is but a limb of Caesar” (II, i, 175-179) Since all the conspirators wanted Brutus’ help they follow what Brutussays and does. Brutus does not wish to spill more blood than has already been spilt. He is defending that which will be left of the remnants of Caesar after they kill him. This is honorable in a abnormal way; Brutus is possibly trying to make up for what he plans to do.
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.
Anthony uses the term, "an honorable man" as more of an insult than a compliment. He spits it out angrily, wanting the crowd to know that he doesnt beleive for a second that it describes the assassins. After he gets done talking about "Honorable Brutus" he takes out Caesars will but does not read it until the crowd has to literally beg and force him to do so. He talks about the robe Caesar was wearing, the first time he wore it was the day he overcame Nervii. When Brustus stuck his mighty dagger into Caesar it was the unkindest cut of them all.
Cordelia takes on this role by unconditionally loving her father and furthermore forgiving Lear for banishing her, which is seen when she says “No cause, no cause.” (4.7). Edgar takes on a similar role by forgiving his father for going against him when he was tricked by Edmund and taking care of Gloucester in his blindness at the end of the play. The other characters, however, give into temptation and sin more frequently. Pride, for example, is a prominent sin that affects many characters, Lear being a prime example. Lear's pride keeps him from listening to the advice of Kent, the king's most loyal follower, after he banishes Cordelia and admitting he may have been wrong.
