The crowd is incensed and want to kill the conspirators and Antony's final words cleverly through subtlety and irony allow the rampage and civil unrest that follows.
" O master, it I were disposed to stir your heart and minds to mutiny and rage, I should do Brutus wrong and Cassius wrong, Who (you all know) are honourable men, I will not do them wrong; I rather choose To wrong the dead, to wrong myself and you, Than I will wrong such honourable men." "Good Friends, sweet friends, let me not stir you up to such sudden flood of mutiny." Although both Brutus and Antony spoke will and impressed the crowd, Antony's emotion and openness forced the crowd to re-examine the notion of loyalty and in doing so show how easily they can be manipulated.
He starts his speech with, "Romans, Countrymen and Lovers, hear me for my cause, and be silent that you may hear. Middle He allows them time to respond to his rhetorical question. Antony starts his speech with, "Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me you ears" as a faithful friend would rather than a noble leader, to gain trust.
Revealing that he cares about them and their thoughts. Antony cunningly in his speech praises Caesar using every bit of information he can to win the crowd. Conclusion Antony claims that his heart is with Caesar and starts expressing the grief he felt by ending his speech weeping.
Rather, he kept attempting to justify his actions and in doing so did not allow him to truly connect with his audience.
There were many similarities between the way that both Brutus and Antony spoke in their orations.Shakespeare wrote it as a tragedy and tried to keep the legend and history of Caesar alive.Julius Caesar is primarily about a leader who is betrayed by his senate and one of the people he trusts the most, Brutus, who lead a conspiracy to assassinate him.Each tries to persuade the crowd to follow their explanation concerning the death.Brutus's short speech is spoken in prose; cunning, clever and directly to the point. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? I pause for a reply." "None, Brutus, none." Antony's longer speech however, is spoken in verse and with great irony, masterfully, touching and indirect to persuade the people that Caesar was loyal and worthy to Rome.There are many similarities and differences in the way that Brutus and Antony speak to their audience in their orations.In these orations, Antony and Brutus try to connect to the audience and saw them to believe what they themselves believe in relation to whether Caesar should have or should not have been slayed.Another contrasting point is in Antony's approach toward his audience.He weeps and shows emotion to let the audience know that he is no better than they are, he has feelings and emotions in which he is not ashamed to show.They both utilized the power of repetition in order to effectively convey a point.Brutus did so in continuously saying that Caesar was ambitious and saying that ambition affected his ability to rule.
