  • Brutus Tragic Flaw - 625 words
    Brutus' Tragic Flaw A tragic hero often has three important characteristics; his superiority which makes his destruction seem more tragic, his goodness which arouses pity, and his tragic flaws. In the Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Brutus is an excellent example of a hero with tragic flaws. Brutus is superior because of his close friendship with powerful Caesar and because of his popularity with the people. The conspirators need Brutus to join the conspiracy because of his friendship with Caesar and his popularity among the people. Brutus idealism and goodness are evident throughout the play; he sees only the goodness in people and naively believes others are as honorable as he. Even his enemy, M ...

  • Brutus: Anything For Rome - 720 words
    Brutus: Anything For Rome Kohlberg's seven level morality scale illustrates his six stages of human development. The stages are split up into three levels, preconventional, conventional, and postconventional morality.

He has this intense loyalty to Rome and follows the moral standards set by the society. Brutus exemplifies the characteristics of a person at stage five, the social contract, which can be found in the postconventional level. Brutus believes that the welfare of Rome is the most important thing and will do almost anything to help preserve the good of Rome. He hone ...

  • Caesar And Brutus - 436 words
    Caesar And Brutus Brutus was a trusted friend of Caesar and an honorable man, or so you thought. In William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Brutus is presented as a loyal companion to Caesar showing himself as honorable only to turn around and betray his friend by death. This to me does not sound like the act of an honorable man. Can a man who is honored, be honorable? Brutus was a noble man in Rome and a good friend to the leader Caesar. Many looked up to Brutus as an honest man, and a person to trust and confide in. Trust is a basis in a friendship, and the one thing that failed to enter the relationship between Caesar and Brutus, leading to the one thing to drive their friends ...

  • Fatal Errors Of Brutus - 614 words
    Fatal Errors Of Brutus The Fatal Errors of Brutus William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is built upon the six lethal mistakes that Brutus unknowingly performs. Brutus believes he uses wise judgment and cunning skill in his plans to prevail over Caesar. There are three errors that seem to be the most significant. They are refusing to take an oath, not killing Antony and allowing Antony to speak at Caesar's funeral. The plot against Caesar is first devised by Cassius, who slowly allows Brutus to take over the arrangements. This is when Brutus' miscalculations eventually lead him to his own downfall. First, Brutus truthfully feels that the conspirators have enough will and intellig ...

  • Julius Caesar And Brutus - 380 words
    Julius Caesar And Brutus In the play Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, Brutus is a tragic hero for he was easily manipulated, naive and patriotic. Brutus believed that the Romans wanted him as the leader to assassinate Caesar, because of the forged notes that were sent to him by Cassius. The note explained how to assassinate Caesar by "Speaking, Striking and Redressing". This note by Cassius caused Brutus to be manipulated into joining the conspirators, one of many flaws that leads to the downfall of Brutus and the assassination of Caesar. Brutus' trusting attitude toward Antony is an example of one of his flaws. Brutus allowed Antony to give a funeral speech for Julius Caesar and to be ...

  • Julius Caeser Brutus - 319 words
    Julius Caeser - Brutus Was Brutus a man of principle or a hypocrite? After reading the play Julius Caeser by William Shakespeare, I would conclude that Brutus was a man of principle and honor. Brutus, a servant and close friend to Caesar, has a strong relationship with Caesar but a stronger relationship with Rome and its people. Brutus felt that Caesar was too ambitious. He would not allow Caesar to rise to power and then turn his back onto the people of Rome. He is also a noble man who was revered by many. Brutus had joined the conspiracy because he had the desire to help the commoners. He was a follower of idealism, where the Romans would possess peace, liberty and freedom. Brutus particip ...

  • The Noble Brutus Hath Told You Caesar Was Ambitious If It Were So, It Was A Grievous Fault, And Grievously Hath Caesar Answer - 741 words
    The noble Brutus hath told you Caesar was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault, and grievously hath Caesar answered it. Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest (for Brutus is an honorable man; so are they all, all honorable men), come I to speak in Caesars funeral, (677-688, li 74-81). In William Shakespeares Julius Caesar, the character of Marcus Brutus represents an honorable man. His honor and nobility cause him to make many mistakes along the path of the story, leading eventually to his downfall and suicide. At the beginning of the play the reader meets Marcus Brutus, a man widely known for his noble character, for the first time. He does fear the people choose Caesar for t ...

  • Antony Speech Analysis - 343 words
    Antony Speech Analysis Emotional Speech Analysis William Shakespeares Julius Caesar is a well-written stage play. Shakespeare included many good speeches in his plays; one of the best was the one delivered by Antony. Antonys speech came very shortly after Julius Caesars death, and the city was in much chaos. The crowd had just heard Brutuss speech. Brutus was one of the murderers of Caesar. His speech appealed to ones emotions and used many rhetorical devices. Antony uses repetition to appeal to a common folks emotions. He repeats the words Brutus is an honorable man. The statement, however, was really being said with a sarcastic tone. Brutus is really not an honorable man. This restatement ...

  • Austin Youngerperiod 3 - 615 words
    Austin Younger Period 3 Hamlets Flaw Hamlet's father, the king of Denmark, has died suddenly. The dead king's brother, Claudius, marries Hamlet's mother and swiftly assumes the throne; a throne that Hamlet fully expected would be his upon the death of his father. Hamlet's father's ghost confronts Hamlet and tells him that his death was not natural, as reported, but instead was murder. Hamlet swears revenge. But rather than swoop instantly to that revenge, Hamlet pretends to be insane in order to mask an investigation of the accusation brought by his father's ghost. Why Hamlet puts on this masquerade and delays in killing Claudius is the central question of the play. But Hamlet did not swear ...

  • Caesar - 922 words
    Caesar Expository Essay The decisions that one man makes can determine the length of life. Rome has many people that have the characteristics to be great leaders. Antony is a manipulative man, Brutus is an honorable man, and Octavius is a quiet strength. All three men would do an excellent job in leading Rome. Antony is a manipulative man. This is shown throughout the play in several cases, but most prominently at Caesars funeral. I thrice presented him a kingly crown which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? (III, ii, 96-96). Antony is very cleaver in the way that he presents his case to the people. He uses rhetorical questioning to show the people that Caesar was in fact not ambitious ...

  • Caesars Leadership - 996 words
    Caesar`s Leadership Selecting a good leader for a country is like setting up a set of dominoes. If the leader does his job correctly the country will be strong, but if he does not become a good leader, the country will topple and go fall. A good leader must be able to make his own decisions because if he cannot make decisions on his own, then he would be considered as a weak leader. The leader of the country has to be able to communicate with the people as well because if he gets the people of the country to listen, then his job would be much easier. Another thing that makes up a good leader is nobility because if he is noble to the countrymen, then there would not be any disputes within the ...

    Ceasar About Antony What Cassius says about Antony: "You know not what...that which he will utter?" Pg. 582 lines 233-236. This shows that the conspirators are afraid of what Antony will say in his oration to the mob. Cassius is trying to make Brutus see what Antony is really up to, but Brutus is too caught up in honor to notice.

  • Dantes Divine Comedy - 1,340 words
    Dante's Divine Comedy In Dante's Divine Comedy, Dante incorporates Virgil's portrayal of Hades from The Aeneid into his poem, and similarities between the Inferno and Hades can be drawn, however Dante wasn't attempting to duplicate Virgil's works. Although the Hell depicted in Dante's Inferno is essentially based on the literary construction of the underworld found in Virgil's Aeneid, in their particulars the two kingdoms are quite different. Virgil's underworld is largely undifferentiated, and Aeneas walks through it without taking any particular notice of the landscape or the quality of suffering that takes place among the dead. Aeneas' first concern is with the fate of his friends, then w ...

  • Dantes Inferno Is A Strange Journey Through Hell, Which At Times Seems Familiar But Then Sometimes Seems Unexpected As An Ame - 659 words
    Dante's Inferno is a strange journey through hell, which at times seems familiar but then sometimes seems unexpected. As an American and a Christian it is possible to think that my opinion on this could be crafted from my religion and our society, particularly its media. In my mind I see hell as this place of immense torment bestowed on sinners. My faith has taught me that those who sin go to hell to be punished. Dante's adventure clearly shows that the souls of hell are punished, as I thought. Punishments range from living in filth to painful tortures. What my religion or any movies or television shows I've seen mentioned is the idea of a hierarchy. The idea of hell being made up of circles ...

Besides spending times at the baths, Romans found pleasure and delight in the "games" held at the local coliseum. These games were among the bloodiest displays of public amusement in the history of man. Professional wrestling and boxing today, do not come close to the disgusting horrors that the people of Rome took so much pleasure in observing. Although the games were very bloody and extremely brutal, often killing many men and animals, the Romans enjoyed the scenery of life and death being very near. Watching men fight and eventua ...

This is unlike what the court has recently seen from its melancholy prince, though most of Hamlet's jokes hide a darker meaning than the court may realize. The king immediately asks Hamlet how he "fares." Hamlet playing on the definition of the word "fare" to also mean "dine," jokes: "Excellent, i' faith; of the chameleon's dish: I eat the air, promise-crammed: you cannot feed capons so" (III, ii. lns 93-94).

  • Hamlets Tragedy - 480 words
    Hamlet's Tragedy Hamlet's tragedy is a tragedy of failure-the failure of a man placed in critical circumstances to deal successfully with those circumstances. In some ways, Hamlet reminds us of Brutus in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Hamlet and Brutus are both good men who live in trying times; both are intellectual, even philosophical; both men want to do the right thing; both men intellectualize over what the right thing is; neither man yields to passion. But here the comparison ends, for though both Brutus and Hamlet reflect at length over the need to act, Brutus is able immediately to act while Hamlet is not. Hamlet is stuck thinking too precisely on th' event-. Hamlet's father, the king ...
