A great friend of Julius Caesar Mark Antony, stood up for many things Caesar had in mind and he was one of the few that Caesar thought was very trustworthy besides Brutus. After Caesar’s death, Mark Anthony told Caesar that he will take revenge for him and that shows great passion for the love that he had for him. Julius Caesar is a man who is ambitious and believes to be very manipulative over the people of Rome. By denying the circlet three times he believed that he could deceive the people of Rome with his manipulative skills and make them vote for him. By such an act from Caesar, the people believed that he does not want to be King and therefore he is a man without ambition and thats why he should be King.
He came for his good friend Caesar. As Antony began his speech, he does not discredit Brut... ... middle of paper ... ...er the crowd by examples of irony and the power of repetitions like the ones above. After great uses of irony, rhetorical question, and slight use of antistrophe Antony told the people who murdered their beloved Caesar.

Julius Caesar was loved because of major conquests and love for his people. He helps the people when he was alive and after his death. As a man in power, he had many enemies but never wasted bloodshed based on suspicions. Brutus tells the Romans that Caesar’s ambition was the cause of his death; however, Caesar was not ambitious, but had hubris. Brutus believes he was thinking on behalf of Rome’s common good.
Brutus’s values then made him join a conspiracy against Caesar put together by Cassius. Brutus is in fact a dear friend of Caesar’s but kills his beloved friend not for who he is, but what he could become as a King. It is for this reason that when Brutus dies by suicide Mark Anthony describes Brutus as the noblest Roman of them all.
Antony has skillful ways to help him convince the Romans that Caesar was a loving man and Brutus is not so honorable. He uses verbal irony, parallel phrases with repetition, and questioning of the truth to sway the crowds' feelings. When giving his speech, Antony uses his skill as an orator through the use of verbal irony. Antony tells the Romans that Brutus called Caesar ambitious. That is only what was said; he was not a man of ambition.
We are also able to see the flaws that he embeds. However, Caesar remains a mystery throughout the play as he is slain very early. Caesar enjoys being loved by the people and enjoys holding his status but Brutus wonders how the best power of Rome can be accomplished and turns to assassination and manipulation as it is the only method of removing Caesar. In general, Brutus is moral while Caesar is immoral. The play ends in a tragic way, as most of the main characters are assassinated or chose to die themselves.
Many of these characteristics that caused Caesar to be murdered also develop him as the tragic hero of the play. Just like any tragic hero, Caesar’s downfall was due to his own actions and excessive pride. Being the soon to be ruler of Rome, Caesar also shares the trait of a typical tragic hero of being a king or leader of men. Just as other tragic heroes sharing this trait, Caesar’s fate affects the welfare of an entire group of people; in this case, the people of Rome. Almost all tragic heroes’ suffering and demise are done with purpose, just as Caesar being killed to prevent his future rule as a tyrant.
He 's very proud of how Romans view him as a noble and honorable man, who fights for what is right and is always following the moral and ethical code. Brutus ends up using the concept of honor and loyalty to his country as a reason why Caesar must die. He 's convinced that his countrymen will thank him for saving them from a tyrant and that Rome would be much better off without Caesar, but it ends up being a big miscalculation
