Brutus. and Mark Antony both speak in-front of a Roman crowd during the funeral of Julius Ceaser. Both addresss carry strong emotion. and seek to supply the crowd with a point. Brutus’ place was that he loved Rome far to much to let a autocrat to destroy the city’s glorification and he would be to the clemency of the people’s penalty. for the blackwash of Ceaser to avoid the wrath of the people. But Antony. uses many rhetorical inquiries and irony to demo how Brutus manipulated the crowd into believing him to being heroic in his violent death. Both characters speak during the funeral addresss. but Brutus is seeking to pull strings the crowd in his favour. where as Mark Antony is merely seeking to convey. what he believes every bit. the truth.
Brutus is one of the plotters in the blackwash of Julius Ceaser ; but cognizing that he will be prosecuted harshly by the crowd he is showing to at the funeral addresss. Brutus manipulates the crowd into believing the blackwash to be a necessary and epic action. Brutus achieves this by utilizing rhetorical inquiries. and assuring the crowd that if they wished him to kill himself he would out of love for the democracy. As good. Brutus says that Julius was over ambitious. and would of ache the province ; so he uses emotional enunciation to portray his love for the Roman province by stating. “… . that. as I slew my best lover for the good of Rome. I have the same sticker for myself. when it shall delight my state to necessitate my decease. ” ( Shakespeare. Julius Ceaser. Act III. Sc. II. ) The usage of words like lover for the good of Rome. and squealing to hold the same sticker for himself makes the crowd believe that Brutus is being sincere. The crowd supported Brutus by stating for him to populate. and that he has offended no 1. Brutus manipulated the crowd into believing the blackwash was the lone action for protecting Rome from a ‘tyrant’ . out of love for the province ; which. until Mark Antony gave his address to the crowd.
Mark Antony uses irony and other devices to portray that Brutus is lying to the crowd. The most important manner to carry the crowd to his favour. was the usage of Ceaser’s bloody vesture to make a feeling of horror. and daze to the force committed. Equally good that regards. the portion of his address where he says that Ceaser is a victim to the hero of the province. He continues to mock Brutus’ words. by stating that the. “Angel of Ceaser. ” would ache a adult male he supposed loved. As good. he says that. “If Brutus is an honest adult male. so are they [ The Conspirators ] all honest work forces. ” ( Act III. Sc. II. ) utilizing rhetorical inquiries to arouse inquiries in Brutus’ address. Because killing a adult male. is non considered to be an honest act ; and on top of it he stabbed Ceaser in hope to derive the power of the province ; hence making the most dishonourable of all the offenses. lese majesty. doing Brutus a treasonist to his darling province. The emotional enunciation is stronger in Antony’s address by the used of dramatic intermissions and that he can non complete his address due to being emotionally overwhelmed. Making his address apparently more true in the manner presented ; because he does non reiterate his chief thought every bit much as Brutus did. Mark Antony’s word pick allows for the crowd to believe about the prevarications that Brutus had said. and mocks the act of the blackwash. and evokes such emotion the the crowd is turned against Brutus.
Brutus tries to win over the Roman crowd through heroic images. and the repeat of the subject of love for the province of Rome. Mark Antony uses irony. emotional enunciation. dramatic sentence structure. and jeer to win over the crowd that the blackwash plotters are to be punished. Both used assorted images. and rhetorical devices to appeal to their points to the crowd. on whether the blackwash is a baronial cause or a evil action ceased upon unjustly to the victim Julius Ceaser.
