The Effects of the Speeches of Brutus and Antony Julius Caesar is one of Shakespeares greatest works Its about a group of conspirators who kill their king Julius in order to be free Antony opposed to the assassination felt that he should avenge Juliuss death He delivered a speech that convinced the Romans that the murder was unjust invoking their rebellion Brutus head of the conspiracy also gave a good speech but the Romans didnt react to it A battle erupted and most of the conspirators committed suicide The styles of the two speeches were very different from each other Brutuss speech was logical It contained facts about Caesars ambition He reminded the people that Caesar would have become a tyrant and would have enslaved everyone Brutus also explained that he didnt hate Caesar but that he loved Rome more The people didnt understand however At one point they wanted to crown Brutus who intended for everyone to be free Antonys speech was long and it evoked pity and other strong emotions He gave reasons that proved Brutuss points to be incorrect Antony had the people surround Juliuss body so that he could point out the wounds As Antony identified each slice he named the man who did it In a sarcastic tone Antony repeatedly referred to these honorable men The Romans became enraged and attacked Cinna a man who they thought was a conspirator who was actually just a poet Brutus made a big mistake by letting Antony speak at Caesars funeral Antonys dramatic speech won the crowd over and ultimately resulted in the downfall of the conspiracy The emotional style of Antonys speech was much more effective than the rational approach used by Brutus
