” He starts with “Romans”, because in his eyes he feels his country is more important then his lovers, Caesar.He realises how much the crowd feel pride in their country, so manipulates their weak spot, in the hope that they will see his point of reason.
There are many similarities and differences in the way that Brutus and Antony speak to their audience in their orations.
In these orations, Antony and Brutus try to connect to the audience and saw them to believe what they themselves believe in relation to whether Caesar should have or should not have been slayed.
Through this, familiar and direct language, the crowd feels closer to Antony, because they realise that it is like speaking to their friend, rather than speaking to the senate, the way Brutus makes it. The crucial distinction between the two speeches, are that Antony has a clear understanding of the crowd psychology, and persuade the crowd to see his notion very easily because of this.
Antony realises the crowd react more to a ‘friend’ rather than someone from the senate, so continues to adhere himself to the crowd later, when he steps down and wants them all to physically move closer, gather round. Brutus pauses, because he has just asked a rhetorical question, and knows no one wil... Brutus does not understand what makes the crowd tick, and this characteristic is clearly the most important feature of making Antony’s speech so effective, and Brutus’ an unconvincing, ineffective, dire address.
The assassination occurs due to Caesar's new power and its threat to the old republican institutions.
After the conspirators murder Julius Caesar, Brutus and Mark Antony, a close friend of Caesar, made speeches at Caesar's funeral.They both utilized the power of repetition in order to effectively convey a point.Brutus did so in continuously saying that Caesar was ambitious and saying that ambition affected his ability to rule.He starts his speech with, "Romans, Countrymen and Lovers, hear me for my cause, and be silent that you may hear. Middle He allows them time to respond to his rhetorical question. Antony starts his speech with, "Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me you ears" as a faithful friend would rather than a noble leader, to gain trust.Revealing that he cares about them and their thoughts. Antony cunningly in his speech praises Caesar using every bit of information he can to win the crowd. Conclusion Antony claims that his heart is with Caesar and starts expressing the grief he felt by ending his speech weeping.A Comparison of the Speeches Made by Brutus and Antony Over the Body of Caesar “Liberty! Both of the speeches have similar have similar beginnings. The conspirators brought his body to the market place to show the people. In this essay I will compare and contrast these two speeches.This type of language is formal and elaborate, and he speaks as though he is talking to the senate.Antony, however, begins with “Friends, Romans, countrymen” By calling the crowd his friends, he is considering himself as though he is on their level, rather than elevating himself like Brutus. this to make sure that the conspirators did not get away with this murder, but we know, he wasn’t just upset, but very angry, so much so that when he was alone on the stage he said that “Mothers shall but smile when they behold Their infants quarter’d with the hands of war” And also “Let slip the dogs of war” so we see that he wanted there to be a civil war, because of his extreme anger over Caesar’s death.Another contrasting point is in Antony's approach toward his audience.He weeps and shows emotion to let the audience know that he is no better than they are, he has feelings and emotions in which he is not ashamed to show.
