In past times, there were phenomenal men who have made contributions through their clear sighted words and by what they have done. In the case of Brutus and Antony the two have came to many differences and similarities about their speeches at Caesar’s Funeral. The main points are the key similarities of their speeches and the key differences of their speeches. While the two Brutus and Antony both have many intelligent thoughts that makes their speeches similar & different, Antony’s use of loaded words and repetition makes his speech much more valid and astute Brutus And Antony use many common devices and ideas to lead on their audience. In both speeches the men use word play at the beginning of their speeches by stringing three similar words. Brutus ” Romans, Countrymen, Lovers, ! ” While Antony said ” Friends, Romans, Countrymen, ” This is important because both of the men are trying to make it seem like they care about the other people. Another similarity they have in common is in both speeches Antony and Brutus both use a rhetorical question. Brutus ” Who is here so base that would be a bondman ?” Antony ” What causes withholds you then, to mourn for him ?”. Them using a rhetorical question is important because they want to persuade the audience at Caesar’s funeral. Brutus and Antony use a lot of different devices to persuade the audience to choose a side to be on. Brutus was a very honorable and Anthony was very persuasive. ” Anthony the noble Brutus have told you Caesar was ambitious” Brutus believe me for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor. Brutus speech was very different from Antony speech because Brutus made his point very simple short and sweet while Antony speech was very manipulative. Brutus just wanted to get his point across while Antony wanted to win the side of the audience. This is important because whoever had the better speech would have had more things to say. All in all both speeches would make the cut but I feel Antony speech was more profound. My reasoning is because Anthony uses a lot of good points especially exaggeration to gain pity from the audience. ” my heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me. Anthony just want it to seem like he is for Caesar and that he really loved Caesar. Anthony uses persuasion to win over the crowd and he promises Brutus to not speak on them as killers. ” I speak not to disapprove what Brutus spoke but here I am to speak what I do know” he’s saying he won’t speak on Brutus and what he knows. First of all brutus’s speech was okay it just doesn’t top Anthony’s. The speech is not the best because Brutus makes his speech very simple like he doesn’t care. ” there is tears for his love, Joy for his fortune “The two Brutus and Antony both have many intelligent thoughts that makes their speeches similar and different. Brutus and Anthony use many devices. Brutus and Antony use a lot of different devices to persuade the audience. All-in-all both speeches would make the cut but I feel Anthony’s was more profound. The two speeches are good but only one can be chosen as the best.
