Both of these speeches showed Pathos and made the audience feel emotions and want to side with them. Mark Antony said “You all did love him once, not without cause: What cause withholds you them, to mourn for him? O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts and men have lost their reason. Bear with me; my heart is in the coffin with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me.” What Mark Antony said was important because he said Caesar was his friend and believed he was a good friend to him. He asked the audience why they do not mourn for Caesar so suddenly when only a day ago they loved him. He makes the audience question why they side with Brutus so suddenly. Brutus on the other hand did something different. “With this I depart,--that as I slew my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself, when it shall please my country to need my death.” Brutus was ready to kill himself in front of all of Rome, if his country wanted it so. No person would want a man who had a face of guilt to kill himself. He used his pain of killing his friend to get the crowd behind him. In the end, I have to say that Antony did better than Brutus because he pointed out to the audience that they once loved Caesar and he kept focus on their emotions more than his own.
Brutus and Mark Antony used Logos by showing logic in their stance. “When the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Ambition should be made of sterner of stuff: Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus

Before he and Cassius could be hunted down by the new leader of Rome, however, they committed

Friends, Romans, countrymen lend me your ears; I come to talk about Brutus. Many call him honorable but I call him unhonorable. He has tricked you with every word he has said. Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie and is exaggerated. when he spoke to you all he wanted to get you to like him and convince you it was good that he killed Caesar. He convinced you to think he did it for rome but he did it for himself. Even Antony thought the same thing he states “ You all did love him once

Cassius, alone now, says that while he believes that Brutus is noble, he hopes that Brutus’s noble nature may yet be bent: “For who so firm that cannot be seduced?” he asks rhetorically (I.ii.306).
