Antony was the person who instigated the war. If they had killed him, he would not have had the chance to turn the people against the conspirators. Another mistake Brutus made, was that he allowed Antony to speak in Caesar's funeral. When the conspirators were discussing it, Cassius thought it to be a bad idea, but Brutus, as naive and trusting as he is, said yes, but only as long as Antony let him speak first and promised not to say anything bad about them. When they left, Antony, in his soliloquy, spoke of revenge.
A new religion was created by Henry VIII, called Protestant. This authorized people to divorce if they were unhappy about their marriage. This made all the pope, monks and priests very irritated and angry. Henry’s hunger for power slowly increased; he wanted to dissolve the monasteries as he felt strongly about controlling the church his way. Although Henry was king of England, he thought that the pope might have more control over the people in England.
Hraknkel changes as a person after the killing of his horse, he becomes nicer and more respectful to people and begins to treat them better after he gives up belief in gods. This new personality portrayed by Hrafnkel earns him loyalty, power, and popularity amongst his subordinates. This I believe, is crucial to his eventual revenge and as chieftain. After he changes as a person people come to respect him more and fall behind him like they did in the past, however this time I think they do so more willingly after Hrafnkel’s change. In my mind, there are a few different reasons for the nature of outbursts of violence in this saga.
Initially, Brutus was a man for the people who did what he believed was necessary. Cassius had forced Brutus into thinking that Caesar was in fact ambitious, Brutus believed him and thought that by murdering Caesar, it would save the lives of the Roman people in the long run. Whereas many of the conspirators killed Caesar because they feared the possibility of him becoming too powerful, Brutus killed him so the people could someday live freely. Brutus loved Caesar dearly, in yet he still had the Roman people in his heart as his first priority. Additionally, Brutus died for his people.
The legacies that were promised to the people in Tiberius’ will were honoured, lavish games were staged for the people of Rome and on top of this, unpopular sales tax were removed. All was going well for Caligula and the people of Rome, however following his recovery from a serious illness, any previous notions of respect or cooperation with the senate completely evaporated. Caligula seemed to have taken the idea of his divinity seriously and expected to be treated duly. He no longer sought to work with the senate but rather ruled as an absolute monarch and expected to be worshipped as a god. “…What emerges clearly from the sources is that while he was not clinically mad he was obsessed with a sense of his own importance as to be practically devoid of any senses of moral responsibility.” –Barrett.
Henry needed the money for power so that he could then build a stronger army and fight more wars. This would then show that he was a powerful king. Money is not the most important reason but it is an important reason. Another reason he broke from the Roman Church is because he wanted power and control over his people. Henry wanted to make sure that he was in total control of England so he needed to get rid of anyone that might threaten his position including the pope.
He uses his high ranking status to gain his credibility as an honorable man. He asks them to “believe me for mine honor” and to “have respect to mine honor.” He does this in order to make what he says afterward sound more believable. This works well in gaining him some credibility and believability. Brutus then moves to talking about how much love he had for Caesar. He appeals to their emotions by saying that his love to Caesar was no less than that of any dear friend of Caesar’s and that he did this “not that I loved Caesar less but that I loved Rome more.
Since he knew how brother John loved those kind of things as the scriptures and all the missing pages he wanted to show him his great discovery but he had sworn with Dickon and Bleheris, not to. Hugh did not show much responsibility when he first arrived at the monastery, but by the end of the story he proved responsibility. Hugh, at first, did not like the idea of staying at the monastery because he got bored easily all day. Until he began to like more and more the work of Brother John and till he met Dickon, later his best friend. Hugh showed perseverance in many ways throughout the story, by what he thought, did, and said.
Therefrom, due to these important facts, the wise king Archidamus strongly encourages their population to postpone their attack and to prepare their army instead. In preparation for their postponed war, the Spartans must gather new allies and new resources. By doing so, they will establish a better position in countering their Athenians foes. (1.82) Moreover, King Archidamus argues that to abstain their attack and act cautious is not an act of cowardice, but an act of bravery. He agrees that they’re indeed slow, but their action is nothing but self control.
When Anthony came up, he knew that he had to work harder to gain the crowd’s attention, so he begins with saying, “I come to bury Caesar, not praise him.” (Act 3 Scene 2; 72) He says this because he knows people don’t want to hear a speech about how “amazing” Caesar was, so he says he’s not there to praise him. In saying this, he gets people’s attention. Both start off with trying to get their credibility first, Antony wins in doing a better job because he worked harder in trying to get it. Pathos, the emotional appeal, is used most in both their speeches. Brutus asked rhetorical questions to try and stir up emotion in the crowd, “who is here so rude would not be a Roman?” (Act 3, Scene 2; 29) In asking these questions he knows people will begin to think about what he has to say.
