Brutus is not like Cassius. He doesn’t feel jealous of Caesar’s position. But, after reading the letters, Brutus realizes that if Caesar becomes the king, then Rome will be negatively affected. That is why he decides to help and join Cassius and the conspirators to kill Caesar. Many of the conspirators kill Caesar out of envy and greed, while only Brutus did it out of love for Rome.
In Macbeth, Macbeth was a tragic hero because he had a flaw in his personality that ultimately caused him to perish. His conflict was that he wanted power too badly and would kill to get it. His ambition made him lose sight of what he had and focus on what he wanted. In the end, because of his tragic flaw, he ended up being killed
Macbeth suffers with anxiety and doubts that makes him insane which then leads to his demise. The first reason he goes insane is when he kills king Duncan. "How now my Lord! Why do you keep alone, of sorriest fancies your companions making, using those thoughts which should indeed have died" (III . ii.
John Proctor's fatal flaw was his great amount of pride, and that slowly tied a series of unfortunate events which eventually made John Proctor succumb to his death. Unfortunately, Proctor dies for a crime he did not commit. Another necessary part of the tragic hero is that he or she has a complete reversal of fortune brought by the hero's own flaw. Proctor's life completely turned upside down when Abigail accused his loved ones who then were sent to jail, or executed. At the end of every tragic play, the audience must feel pity or remorse for the deceased hero.
When Antony spoke at Caesar’s funeral Brutus trusted him not to blame the conspirators for Julius Caesar’s death. Antony in fact said the conspirators were behind Julius’s death. Another example of Brutus being too trusting is when Brutus trusted Cassius about killing Julius to save Rome from tyranny. "Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more"(Julius Caesar-Brutus). Afterwards Brutus did feel terrible about killing his beloved friend as if anyone would.
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.
A Shakespearean tragic hero is defined as ‘an exceptional being of high degree’ whom has a fatal flaw. Macbeth’s character is a classic example of a Shakespearean tragic hero. In many of Shakespeare’s tragedies, the main character starts off as a very brave, heroic person whom everyone praises. However as time passes by, the character loses his reputation because he faces a moral dilemma. He also loses reputation due to his fatal flaw.
Another reason why Brutus could be a patriot because he said he no matter what he would die for Rome making it a better place. What makes this statement invalid is that the people of Rome would probably prefer Brutus suffering in prison for the rest of his life facing what he has done like a man, instead of being a coward and killing himself before he was captured. I believe Brutus is a betrayer for the reason he killed not only his closest friend, but Caesar the soon to be mighty leader of Rome. Already killing a friend of yours who trusted you to be at their very side, shows how much of a coward Brutus was. Another thing is the people he decided to collaborate with had a totally different motive of killing Caesar.
Rease May Mrs.Clark/Mrs.Taylor English II Dec 10. 2013 Rhetorical Strategy Here Julius Caesar’s cold body lay. The great Caesar has been slain by his “loyal” friends. Brutus tries to explain that the death of Caesar was for the good of Rome because he became too ambitious while Antony tries to explain subtlety that Caesar was not ambitious and that it was the conspirator’s ambition that had slain Caesar. Both Brutus and Antony delivered great eulogies to Caesar, but Marc Antony’s was more persuasive to the crowds of Rome.
A tragedy is a story of a person’s demise brought on them by the specific flaws in their character. The “Tragedy of Othello” by William Shakespeare tells a story of deceit and revenge. Othello, the central figure of the play, is a man noble to his country and people. He is an amazing character, a tragic hero, who has befallen to undeserved misfortune and folly. While it may seem, that the tragedy of Othello was caused by the evil villain Iago, I believe that he was not the only one to blame.
