In the play Julius Caesar the tragedy of the play was mainly at a one specific character Marcus Brutus The mind that Brutus had only allowed him to see the world and its people from one point of view This point of view allowed him to make judgments that assumed only the best of people This tragic weakness resulted in many errors throughout the play Brutus was too thoughtful and lived in fantasy world in which he made all his decisions simply by expecting that all were as honorable as himself While showing his feelings towards Caesar he said I know little personal cause to spurn at him But for the general Brutus felt that Caesar had not done anything incorrect but was afraid of what might occur He compared Caesar to a snake which has the ability to sting Just as one might step on the snake and be stung Caesar might defeat anyone who interfered with his course of action Brutus thinks about what Caesar could become and do if he was given the power of the crown A very descriptive metaphor was used to illustrate Brutus reasoning for killing That lowliness is young ambitions ladder Whereto the climber-upward turns his face But when he once attains the upmost round He then unto the ladder turns his back Looks into the clouds scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend A strong desire was used and the qualities of a person that could climb a ladder Caesar climbing the ladder of his desire would reach the top and forget about the people of Rome and his fellow Senators He would look into the clouds and indulge in the wealth and good fortune This possible outcome caused Brutus to remember his love for Rome A simile also compared Caesar to a snake that was contained in an egg The snake was harmless
