Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 These are some of the actions made by Brutus that don't seem at all honorable. BRUTUS WAS NOT ACTUALLY AN "HONORABLE MAN." 8.In Brutus' speech at Caesar's funeral he tried to convince the public that what he did was fine becauseit was the best for Rome.Regardless, he murdered someone! 6. Brutus let Antony speak last at Caesar's funeral.This allowed Antony to have the final word,and it essentially turned the public on Antony's side. This was a bad idea on Brutus' part. Brutus tells Antony, "And you shall speak in the same pulpit whereto I am going, after my speech has ended." (Act III, Scene I, Lines 274-276) 7. Brutus put the commonpeople before the individual. This means that to makeeveryone happy, he took the life of an individual. This is definitelynot honorable. 5. After Brutus killed Caesar, him and the otherconspirators bathed their hands in Caesar'sblood. This is both gross and disrespectful. In fact, Brutus states in the play, "And let us bathe our hands in Caesar's blood up to the elbows and besmear our swords."(Act III, Scene I, Lines 118-119) In the play, Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, Brutus is often called an "honorable man."There are many aspects of the play that lead me to believe that he wasn't as honorable as many people thought.Ally Botwinick 10.Finally, Brutus commits suicide because he figured that was his punishmentfor starting a civil war and beginningriots throughout his country. 4. Brutus killed Caesar, who was his friend. This shows that he is a traitor and a disloyal friend. Caesar's last words before his death were, "Et tu Bruté?" (Act III, Scene I, Line 85) This means "and you, too, Brutus?" 1. When the conspirators asked Brutus to join in on their plan to kill Caesar, Brutus should have refusedEven though the conspirators made it seem like it was what was best forRome, Brutus should have declined the offer. Brutus should have been a leader, not a follower. 2. Brutus, at first, refuses to tell Portia about the conspiracy and tells her he is just not feeling well.If Brutus were an "honorable man"he would have been honest with his wife.Brutus says to her in the play,"I am not well in health, and that is all." (Act II, Scene I, Line 277) 9. Brutus didn't have very good control of his country, which made him a bad leader. When Rome broke out into a riot, Brutus couldn't stop the people, which meant Rome was in great danger. 3. Brutus didn't want Caesar to be king. Before Caesareven got a chance to be king, Brutus killed him. This shows that Brutus never even gave Caesar a chance, which was not right of Brutus.
