    if I were dispos’d to stir/ Your hearts and minds to mutiny and rage, I should do Brutus and Cassius wrong,/ Who (you all know) are honorable men.” (III.ii.119-122). That statement shows that Antony is the classic manipulative friend and Caesar is the classic ruler taken before his time. People may try to turn this around and say that Brutus is the tragic hero or that Caesar was the antagonist. In a way, they would also be right. Although that theory would be right, so is the theory that has been presented.…

    This element supports the idea that a wealthy and noble person makes a perfect tragic hero because they can lose everything. The first smaller choice that Brutus makes that later has a negative outcome is not killing Marc Antony along with Caesar.

In Act V, the two sides are talking before battle and Cassius remarks, “Flatterers!…

    Marcus Brutus has the tragic flaw of having poor judgment, because he so easily trusts people, such as the conspirators consequently causing Marcus to be ignorant and blind to the fact that they were planning to kill Caesar, not to better the government but for personal gain.

With all of his pride for the democracy, he puts his country over his friends and family. He honestly suspected that Caesar would do harm to Rome’s new republic. So he went along with the conspiracy to assassinate Caesar.…
