Julius Caesar the tragic hero Who would deny that the title of a novel or play has no relevance to the play itself Unfortunately people have caused the true tragic hero of Shakespeares Tragedy of Julius Caesar an area of dispute Brutus seems to be a candidate because he appears more than Caesar in the play but without Caesar the whole play would be lost It is a fact that Julius Caesar is the tragic hero It is arguable that Brutus fits the description of a tragic hero He has a high position in society which is evident through that fact that he is a senator In the play even his enemies speak well of him Brutus is also very prosperous He is very wealthy and has many loyal friends It also seems that he has a great relationship with his wife because when she was concerned about him he spent time to talk to her and comfort her Furthermore his tragic flaw causes him it make a mistake He ends up murdering Caesar because of his overwhelming loyalty to Rome Brutus is more concerned about his nation than he is about anyone else Although Brutus seems to fit the definition of a tragic hero the fact that Caesar fits it better is undeniable Shakespeare makes his point very clearly First the citizens of Rome love Caesar so much that they offer him the crown three times As opposed to Brutus who is barely known by the citizens Julius Caesar had already been the leader of Rome without being king and had led his own army to many great victories Caesar can boast of his prosperity through his wealth his many friends and his loving wife Caesars tragic flaw helps to make his death more of a tragedy He is too trusting and over-confident in the loyalty of his friends In no part of the play did Caesar imagine that his closest friends were plotting
