Oh pardon me thou bleeding piece of earth that I am meek and gentle with these butchers Thou art the ruins of the noblest man that ever lived in the tide of times These were the words of Marcus Antonius in William Shakespeares Julius Caesar Antony was an intelligent man with an improvisatory nature He loved Caesar and was always loyal to him Antony could have been given the crown but he wanted the freedom He liked being dependent upon Julius Caesar in order to live a glamorous life without the contractual obligation In Act I Scene ii we see our first example of Antonys faithfulness to Caesar During the race Caesar asks Antony to touch Calpurnia so that she may bear children Antony agrees to complete the task without any hesitation A few lines later Brutus says I do lack some part of that quick spirit that is in Antony This implies that Antony was very healthy and had much athletic ability In this scene one can also see that Caesar loves Antony as much as Antony loved him After Caesars death in Act III Scene I Antony speaks to Caesars body in pain and agony He knows that Caesar was killed because of his high power and now fears he may be next He then speaks again saying That I did love the Caesar O tis true If then thy spirit look upon us now shall it not grieve thee dearer then thy death to see Antony making peace shaking the bloody fingers of thy foes most noble in the presence of thy course Now Antony is speaking to the conspirators and feeling great emotion for the death of his beloved friend Next Antony shows his mischievous side by tricking the conspirators into thinking that he is on their side and is their friend However he just wants to speak at the funeral so that he may rile up the crowd Cassius thinks
