William Shakespeare was well known for incorporating raw human nature into his plays In the play Julius Caesar Marc Antony is one of the well-crafted characters As Shakespeare illustrates the three different methods to gaining belief he also shows the three different modes used to display traits of characters In the play Julius Caesar Shakespeare tries to make the audience think about emotion and logic in a situation that is far from black and white To do this the author makes the emotional character Marc Antony manipulative To show this trait the author uses Antonys speech and language interaction with other characters as well as the description of Antony by other characters All three of these combine to mold our perception on Antonys character into a person we can not only visualize but also relate to in a human way When Antony speaks he uses his language in a convincing way He almost tricks people into thinking the way that he wants them to After Caesars death he speaks to his Friends Romans countrymen Even by calling them that he has a purpose He addresses them with respect like trusted equals so that they might feel like they are important to him so they will feel more compelled to hear him out In his speech he uses a sort of sarcasm to make his point When he says things like - When the poor hath cried Caesar hath wept Ambition should be made of sterner stuff Yet Brutus says he was ambitious And Brutus in an honorable man He is causing the people to doubt Brutuss logic The first line is to show Caesars compassion and the second to show how this made him not ambitious Brutus contradicts this therefore Brutus must be wrong making the fourth line wrong as well that Brutus by the law of syllogism must not be an honorable man
