Brutus’ speech handled emotional and ethics appeal better. He said throughout his speech how he weeps for Caesar and how he honored him. He uses ethics to try to persuade the crowd that he loved Rome more than he loved Caesar. Brutus also uses reasoning to let the crowd know that Caesar was valiant, fortunate, and that he killed him. Brutus’ uses of ethical appeals in his speech were strong. He used the word honor several times in his speech to try to get the crowd to think that is the most important quality in a person. He also uses ethics to say how anyone who disagrees with Caesar’s death hates Rome as well.
Anthony won over the crowd by using reasoning to give facts that Caesar wasn’t ambitious, and by using ethics to convince the crowd that Brutus wasn’t honorable. He also used emotion, getting the crowd to believe that he was close to Caesar. Brutus could’ve used more reasoning to give more facts in his speech to persuade the crowd.
