Julius Ceaser Essay

697 words - 3 pages

I believed in what Brutus had to say during his speech, and I was pro-Brutus because of his honorable title. However, I am now pro-Caesar and pro-Antony. I truly believe in what Antony has to say, because unlike Brutus, he has reasons and explications for why things were done. He does not simply state an opinion as Brutus did. He supports his opinion with facts, so that they are no longer opinions but facts. Brutus said that he killed Caesar for the good of Rome, but he never told us the harm that Caesar caused. I compare it with Antony's speech, and wonder how could I have seen the death of Caesar as a proper action.Antony says that he will read the will, if we make a ring around Caesar's corpse. He shows us Caesar's bloodstained toga, with a tear. He shows us the rip, and says, "See what a rent the envious Casca made: Through this the well-beloved Brutus stabb'd." When Antony showed us visual evidence of the bloody treason, and when he said the words "beloved" and "Brutus" together I sought revenge. I am furious, and detest Brutus. I hit myself on the head, for respecting him, and thinking of him as an honorable man. How foolish I had been! Tears come to my eyes, as I see the dead corpse of the most exquisite man that had ever existed.It was after all of this, that the crowd of Roman citizens is truly enraged. We chant: "...Burn! Fire! Kill! Slay! Let not a traitor live!". I am not going to let any of the conspirators get away. They killed the best thing that had ever happened to Rome, and for that they deserve to suffer! Antony says that were he an able speaker, he would move "The stones of Rome to rise and mutiny." I am not a highly educated man, but nor I am totally ignorant. I see what Antony is tying to tell us. I supported Brutus during his speech,...
