Julius Caesar essay
Brutus was Caesars best friend, they grew up together and told each other everything, Caesar trusted Brutus like a brother. Brutus is plotting to kill Caesar because he believes that Caesar will become a tyrant, so this is his idea of stopping that, if you don't know what a tyrant is it is when someone is a cruel ruler, which is what he believed Caesar would become if crowned king. Cassius has made Brutus believe that killing Caesar is a good thing even though Caesar has shown no reason for him to be killed but out of jealousy and hatred cassius wants to assassinate Caesar. Brutus is not noble because he is a murderer,untrustworthy,and a coward for taking the easy way out by killing Caesar,and a noble person seems to help not kill. This is why Brutus is not noble. Brutus is not noble because he is a murderer who helped construct and pursue the murder of his best friend for simply a reason of fear of the future. In act 3 scene 1 of Julius Caesar Brutus said " we are Caesars friends,for we've done him a service by shortening his time spent fearing death." Caesar is here plotting
Caesars death and justifying it. This evidence supports the main point because this is when Brutus is plotting Caesars death with
Cassius and everyone else. This is to show that Brutus is not a noble man for not only constructing and pursuing the death of a noble innocent man not to mention his best friend, and has found a way to make it look like he is doing Caesar a favor by killing him. Brutus is not trustworthy, Caesar trusted Brutus with his life, he treated Brutus like a brother, and what did Brutus do, he killed him
out of fear. In act 3 scene 1, ad Caesar was dying he said " et tu,brute?". Caesar is shocked that his friend Brutus was one of the assassins who killed him, and he is basically saying you to Brutus with shock of how much his dear friend who he trusted would betray him so much. This supports the main point because Caesar trusted
Brutus with everything and at the small turn of event Brutus betrayed him which ones to show that Brutus is untrustworthy.
Furthermore this supports my claim that Brutus is not noble because a noble person would never pursue such an act of being untrustworthy to none other than his beloved friend. Brutus is a coward for taking the easy way out and killing not only a noble innocent man but also his best friend. All of these actions were done out of fear of the worse which is something that a coward would do take the easy way out. In act 2 scene 1 Brutus said " it must be by his death: and if my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general. He would be crowned : how that might change his nature, there's the question." He is saying that when Caesar is crowned he might change and be me a tyrant( cruel ruler) and put rome in danger. All of these horrible
