How anthony turned the crown around from brutus' speech I start with Brutus has just left Anthony alone to start his speech and had asked the crowd to stay and listen to him. If Brutus hadn't of asked the crowd to stay I don't think anybody would have listened to Anthony and would of all gone of down the road praising Brutus.
