Development of Marcus Brutus Marcus Brutus from the play Julius Csar made many decisions In making these decisions he showed what kind of a person he was on a moral intellectual social or practical level Some of these decisions were good decisions and some of them were not Through all of these decisions though it is shown what kind of a person Brutus was Some of the decisions that Brutus made were not exactly the best decisions In fact they may be seen as mistakes One of these mistakes that Brutus made was right at the beginning of the play in Act 1 scene 2 Cassius and Brutus are having a conversation near the marketplace while the Lupercal race is being held Cassius starts to manipulate Brutus and Brutus realizes this He even asks Cassius Into what dangers would you lead me Cassius for that which is not in me This quote proves that Brutus knew that Cassius was trying to manipulate him and yet Brutus decided to stay and listen Through the decision making that Brutus showed in that instance it can be seen that Brutus is not a very smart person Brutus lack of intelligence is also shown when all the other conspirators are at his house Cassius suggests that Cicero should be asked to join the conspiracy because his silver hairs will purchase us a good opinion Brutus however thinks that he Cicero will never follow anything that other men begin Later in the play it becomes realized that if Brutus would have listened to Cassius and asked Cicero to join them the citizens of Rome wouldnt have involved themselves in a civil war Another mistake made by Brutus was to not kill Mark Antony Even though Cassius suggested many times that Antony should have been killed Brutus never listens It is clear in the latter stages of the play that Brutus should have killed Antony as Cassius told him
