Transcript of Julius Caesar - Brutus

Line 10 “It must be by his death; and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, But for the general.” Irony -Brutus sees Caesar as a threat to the people, while most citizens praise him. -Although it is unethical to commit murder, Brutus believes it’ll best benefit the society. Ethos Julius Caesar- Brutus Line 14 “It is the bright day that brings forth the adder, And that craves wary walking Paradox - Nature is often described as peaceful and calming, but as the snake interferes with the environment it destroys the image of innocence. -Brutus is convinced that Caesar is the source of corruption that slowly kills Roman society. Line 15-17 “Crown him that, And then I grant we put a sting in him That as his will he may do danger with.” Ad Hominem -If Caesar is given power, he would destroy the government that took years to establish.

Line 32-35 “And therefore think him as a serpent’s egg Which hatched, would as his kind grow mischievous, And kill him in the shell. Euphemism -This, quote represents that before Caesar accepts the crown they should kill him before he does any purpose.
