The Persuasive Antony of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, written by William Shakespeare, the characters give many persuasive speeches, some stronger than others, to convince characters in the story about what is true, false, right, and wrong. After given instructions on a way to present his funeral speech for Caesar, Antony uses knowledge and skill to cover for his persuasion. Antony speaks to the Roman mob after Brutus. His objective is to turn the people against Brutus and the conspirators in a persuading way so the group will no longer follow what is wrong. 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
The Ambitious Marc Antony in Julius Caesar The tragic and untimely death of Julius Caesar, a condemned Roman tyrant, triggered William Shakespeare's creativity. In his play Julius Caesar Shakespeare writes of the treacherous conspirators, Marcus Brutus and Caius Cassius, and their plans to assassinate their Roman leader, Julius Caesar. The story continues to explain how Caesar's loyal friend, Marc Antony, helps avenge the brutal murder. After Antony receives soldiers to fight his battle, his character begins to change. The fair and faithful Marc Antony transforms to a darker and more deceitful character. Marc Antony is not suitable to rule Rome because he holds a grand desire of great power, his conceit
Now it was time to say goodbye to the house, and move back to California where most of the family were at. When I moved to California I moved to Salinas at the time I was in 3rd grade at a school called Kamman. My favorite teacher was my 3rd grade teacher her name was Mrs. Vierra she was a nice lady. My least favorite teacher was Mrs. Cunov she got frustrated at us really easily, and picked her nose right in front of us it was gross. In 5th grade I had a teacher named Mr. Spencer he was my favorite male teacher because he was the man that taught the class to make paper airplanes. It was fun because it made class so much more interesting. In the beginning of the year I attended at Kamman then a few weeks later I moved to Monterey where I attended the rest of middle school at the Monterey Bay Charter

Number 6 The protagonist in this play is Julius Caesar. He is the Protagonist for many reasons. One is that the main plot if the play is to kill Caesar for being a bad ruler against Rome. The consipators were making plans to kill Caesar. There are many warnings in the story that Caesar is going to die, but he ingores all of them because the consipators tell him not to.If he wasn’t the Protagonist then there would be no need to have him in the play for most of them time. Even after his death Caesar still makes many appernices in the book and that makes the other charcters die. Protagonist is the main charcter in a story and that is what caesar is. It is clear that no one else is the Protagonist except for Casear. Caesear lives on in the
In Greece and Egypt, his identification with Dionysus capitalized on the popular Dionysiac cult, which could be found in the East as well as in Italy. By linking oneself with Dionysus, Antony portrayed himself as a divine triumvir, looking to conquer the Orient. This political move was based on popular belief that Dionysus was the god of world conquest, and the blessings of Dionysus included civilization itself. To the people of the East, this connection provided justification why Antony should be revered and followed. Connecting himself with Dionysus also indicated royal power. Since Alexander himself was "bound up with Dionysus," and his predecessors, the Hellenistic kings would displayed themselves as the wine god (by taking his dress and acting in his likeness), Antony proclaimed he was the successor of the Hellenistic kings, and therefore the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. To the East, this deification through Dionysus justified Antony's connection to Cleopatra and his right to rule. In combination with enhancement of this image through deification and mythological ties, Antony launched a fierce verbal campaign against Octavian to illegitimate his rule. Suetonius' The Lives of the Caesars- The Deified Augustus, pays testament to Antony's craftiness and versatility.
Mark Antony was a resilient and persuasive man that turned the tides of Rome after Julius Caesar's death. He used the word honorable to mean dishonorable, having rhetorical questions to leave the crowd thinking, and the use of emotion to show the care he has for the Roman people. Mark Antony was a very smart and tricky man that turned the word honorable around.
Mark Antony was of noble Roman family. In his younger years, he was highly educated. He was taught politics, which he’d use later on in life, a few examples would be public speaking, and being able to figure out and handle situations.
Mark Antony and Marcus Brutus were both able to get the crowd to agree with their speech. Brutus was able to get the crowd to say “Live Brutus! Live, live!”. Mark Antony’s speech was more effective because he got the people to conspire against the conspirators. His was well thought out much more than Brutus’s speech. Antony was good at getting them to change their mind. He could accomplish this in many ways.
Octavian and Marc Antony- The Duel of Words and Deeds Following the Julius Caesar's death at the hands of the Senate, Octavian and Marc Antony propelled themselves to the pinnacle of Roman power. First joining together during the Second Triumvirate, these men represented the true power players of Roman politics. As their alliance fractured, both Romans resorted to propaganda to gain an edge over the other. Through insulting the other and polishing their own image, both Antony and Octavian looked to capture absolute Roman dominance. Even before their eventual war in 32 B.C.E., the men engaged in a duel of words in deeds. This paper will first overview the formation and disintegration of Second Triumvirate between Marc Antony, Marcus Lepidus, and Octavian. Its main portion will divulge the devious propaganda, leading up to the war in 32 B.C.E., used by Marc Antony and Octavian to destroy the other politically. Plutarch's Antony and Suetonius' The Lives of the Caesars- The Deified Augustus(De Vita Caesarum - Divus Augustus) will serve as our main guide to this war of image.
The Central Concerns of the Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare This essay will look at two of the central concerns in Antony and Cleopatra, namely reason versus passion and the public versus private domains. These two central concerns of the play are clearly
Mark Antony and Popular Culture: Masculinity and the Construction of an Icon by Rachael Kelly, is a pathbreaking analysis of how Antony (the pop culture icon, hopeless lover and drunkard) differs so substantially from Antonius (the historical figure, esteemed general and statesman). Kelly successfully lays out—with great quality and depth—how the mythology itself performs a deeper socio-cultural function. In order to further examine and engage with this idea, this informative and original study employs a socio-ideological analysis of a series of seven culturally resonating screen texts dating from, for example, Cleopatra (Cecil B DeMille, 1934) to the television series Rome (HBO, BBC, RAI, RAI2, 2005-2007).
The extract from Plutarch’s Life of Antony concentrates on Cleopatra’s seduction of Antony. It presents Cleopatra and her retinue as manipulative, bending Antony to their will, “[Cleopatra’s] flatterers also worked hard upon Antony at this time. They told him that he must be an insensitive brute with a heart of stone, for here was a mistress who was utterly devoted to him alone”. Plutarch: Makers of Rome also references Cleopatra’s wiles, ‘Plato speaks of four kinds of flattery. but [sic] Cleopatra knew a thousand’ (Scott-Kilvert, 1965, p. 296).
