Transcript of The Tragic Flaws Of Caesar and Brutus...

Julius Caesar
by William Shakespeare

Brutus thought that Caesar’s death would do good for Rome. Brutus’s wanting to good for his country was his weakness. The other conspirators put the idea of killing Caesar would be good for Rome. He went along even though he loved Caesar dearly.
So all in all, they both died in the end. Brutus realized what he did was wrong and that he was being used. Brutus had his servant hold his sword so he could throw himself onto the blade. He didn't want to live knowing he was taken advantage of.

And I the elder and more terrible.

And Caesar shall go forth.

If it be aught toward the general good,

Set honor in one eye and death i' th' other,

And I will look on both indifferently,

For let the gods so speed me as I love

The name of honor more than I fear death.
Act 2, scene 4, lines 10-14

I know no personal cause to spurn at him

But for the general. He would be crowned.
