    might be what we don’t think. An iron fist in a velvet glove is a great idiom to explain one‚ such as Marcus Brutus in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. At the end of Julius Caesar Marc Antony refers to Brutus as “the noblest Roman of them all.” Is Brutus truly noble? Or is he truly an iron fist in a velvet glove? Marcus Brutus is one of the many ignoble Romans in Julius Caesar. Marcus Brutus does not thoroughly analysis the consequences that

    Some people may think that Brutus was a patriot because he killed Caesar for the good of Rome and their people. However‚ Brutus was a betrayer because he killed‚ betrayed‚ and lied to his best friend. Brutus plotted with conspirators who had no thought or love for Rome.

    Antony refers to Brutus‚ “This was the noblest Roman of all. / All the conspirators save only he / did that they did in envy of great Caesar. / He only in a general honest thought / And common good to all‚ made one of them. / His life was gentle‚ and the elements / So mixed in him that Nature might stand up / And say to all the world‚ ‘This was a man’” (V.v.68-75). He put his country before his friends and family‚ and he joined the conspirators to assassinate Caesar for the good of Rome. Even though

    Brutus convinces himself that Caesar needs to be killed‚ by justifying that once Caesar becomes King‚ the power will manifest his true selfish nature and he will ruin Rome. Brutus has no personal grudge against Caesar. But if it is for the greater good of the people‚ for Rome‚ he will kill Caesar. In Brutus’s personal experience Caesar has never shown fault. Thus‚ he goes through a process of logic in the unknown to convince himself that Caesar should die. In his justification‚ Brutus considers that

    Caesar‚ Antony says that Brutus was the "noblest Roman of them all." In my opinion‚ I agree that Brutus was the noblest character in the play. He always kept everyone’s best interest in mind. However‚ gathering people to have Caesar killed‚ was not the right thing to do‚ even if it was better for Rome‚ Caesar still lost his life at the hands of Brutus. That being said‚ this act of overthrowing Caesar‚ still shows his willingness to help others at any cost. Brutus is the noblest Roman‚ because

    controversies when it comes to deciding if Brutus is a patriot or a betrayer. Some would say he is a traitor for joining the plan to kill Caesar‚ his best friend‚ without considering other options. However‚ I see Brutus as a patriot‚ the reason is because Brutus did not say yes to Cassius the first-time Cassius offered the chance to Brutus. It is not until Cassius plants the fake notes of Rome in Brutus room that Brutus decides to join the conspiracy. With that‚ Brutus only joined the conspiracy because

He thought giving the throne to a single man would

    Antony VS Brutus

    • 3 Pages

    conspirators depended on Marcus Brutus for one reason: to justify the murder of Julius Caesar. However after allowing Mark Antony to not only bring in the corpse of their beloved Caesar yet also speak after Brutus during the funeral‚ it would seem that Brutus’ role in the murder was pointless. Both Brutus and Antony delivered powerful speeches using irony and rhetorical devices but one speech failed to deliver an essential connection with the crowd. Although Brutus persuades the plebeians‚ Mark Antony
