Brutus assumes that they would be slaves if Caesar became king and he logically explains what went through his head. He says that he had to make the logically decision of killing Caesar and becoming free men, or staying quiet and die as slaves. The crowd praised Brutus because he wanted better for the people of Rome not for his selfish needs. After he expresses pathos by trying to get the pity of the crowd. He wanted to let the crowd know that he loved Caesar, but he simply loved Rome much more, “Just as I killed my best friend for the good of Rome, so will I kill myself when my country requires my death.” (3,2 pg.129).
Believe me for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor that you may believe.” (126). Brutus appeals to the audience with his honor, and calls them fellow romans and dear friends. By asking the people to believe him for his honor, he lays down his credibility of being an honorable person. He knows that the people know that he is honorable. Because of this, the audience believes that he killed the ambitious Caesar because he cares and loves the people of Rome.
His swift action is also seen as an admirable trait as he sends Creon off to the Delphic oracle to find out the cause of the plague immediately. As a result the audience are automatically inclined to grow a liking towards Oedipus, as he shows the quality of a pious/dutiful man. However Oedipus’ strengths, unwillingly becomes his weaknesses when his hamartia becomes evident; his lack of information about his identity. Oedipus’ intelligence and assertiveness holds no match against the paramount nature of fate. His insults of Tiresias’ and his blindness, accusation of both Creon and Tiresias plotting against him, and the vicious handling of the old shepherd to extort information from him show his complete frustration in his determination to find the truth.
He also lets everyone know that Caesar was “ambitious” and he had to “slew” him because of it. He says this because he thought everyone in town thought Caesar was an honorable man. 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.
Caesar does not deserve what he is given, and that is death. The reasons for why Caesar did not deserve to die, are because Caesar is giving, kind, and selfless, are these traits that are liable to get him killed, Definitely not. First off, Caesar is a giving man for several reasons. He cares deeply about all of the people of Rome, and he has nothing but their best interests at heart, and that is quite evident. The people that are conspiring against him argue that he was selfish, but that is just blasphemous, he cared about the people before himself, any day.
Bold the transitions. Remember, transitions are used between examples and between examples and explanations. Brutus is a betrayer, even though he says some things to people sometimes he turns around a says the complete opposite to others. Therefore, one example of this statement is when he always looked out for the best of Rome but when people said something that wasn’t so good about Rome, he will also go along with what they said even though he loved Rome. That why he is a betrayer in my opinion, he lies to people and he always wants to be a two-faced person.
Society rejects these odd new things. However the man doesn’t give in and change his ideas to fit what society wants and he seems content doing it. This confuses the masses and encourages them to hate him more. Aristotle calls him “the great-souled man” Ayn Rand calls him Howard Roark but they are one and the same. Howard Roark is the novel's personification of the perfect man.
Here Brutus illustrates his love Rome, “not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more” (citation). Brutus explains to the crowd that he did love Caesar, but he loved Rome more and he had slain Caesar because he thought it would be for the better of Rome. Not only did these men use much emotion and logic in their eulogies, but they also use ethnical reasoning
Antony’s speech used both of the rhetorical appeals which are pathos and ethos. His speech is little repetitive in the fact that it keeps talking about Brutus being a noble man. It seems as if after everything Antony says about Brutus he covers up by saying that Brutus was a noble man. At the beginning of the speech Antony says “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” (3.2.73) which seems like he is kind of begging the audience to listen to him. Antony expressed that Caesar was a good man and that he wasn’t ambitious.
In addition to pathos he says “not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more”, this an example of pathos because he shows love to Caesar and Rome. This part is effective because he makes tells the citizens that he did it for Rome and makes them feel that he loved them. He also says that if he had offended anyone that they should use the knife they used to kill Caesar and go with him, this is pathos because it creates fear of Brutus among the people. This is effective because he makes the citizens fear that if they disagree they should die too. Furthermore he says “who here is so rude that will not be a
