Well, in Antony’s oration he did what he promised, not to point out who murder Caesar, however he wanted his fellow Romans to bring justice to Caesar and prove that Caesar was not ambitious but noble. Both men uses of rhetoric were superb and alike in a way that both men wanted to gain control over their fellow Romans and accused or defend Caesar’s creditability. However, in Antony’s oration his slight uses of figures of repetition, like the use of antistrophe, figures of address, rhetorical question, and figures of contrast, the use of irony, lead the people to the truth and turn them against Brutus by telling was noble and who was ambitious. Antony’s speech for the people was phenomenal because he first established for what reasons did he came for. He came for his good friend Caesar.
In Act I, Scene II, he is disinclined to join Cassius’ conspiracy because he was loyal to Caesar and did not want to double-cross him. He had to carefully think about his choices and in Act III, Scene II, Brutus kills Caesar because as aforementioned he thinks that it is the most benefitting choice for Rome. He knew they would suffer under his ruling. Yet, he still knows in his heart what a right-minded man Caesar is. In the same part, he allows Antony to speak at the funeral, which was a proper ceremony in which this is allowed, whenever Cassius highly disagreed with this.
However much he loved Caesar, he opposed the fact that a single man ruled Rome and he feared Caesar would rise to hold that power. Brutus was a good leader. He was truthful and honourable. Brutus tries to justify his reason for killing Caesar and he says “not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more”. (III.i.21-22) It shows that his love for Rome was incomparable to anyone else and he slew Caesar not for his own greediness but for his love for Rome.

Throughout the play, Brutus shows very knowledgeable, perceptive, and noble qualities toward the Roman Democracy.

Furthermore, Antony’s opinion of Brutus changes from pure despite and detestation, to honor, and respect, after he realizes the reasoning that Brutus had “‘Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more./ Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves,/ Than that Caesar were dead and live all free men?’” (III.ii.21-22). This statement is spoken to the crowd, in regards to the assassination of Caesar.
