THE WILL OF CAESAR Joy Weaver Lines 150-215
Mark Antony uses a rhetorical question make the audience think about if they really wanted him to reveal the WILL OFF CAESAR
YOU WILL COMPEL ME THEN TO READ THE WILL?
THE WILL! READ THE WILL!
The crowd gathers around Antony
Attempting to cast guilt onto Brutus, Antony uses emotional language and metaphors as he talks about how the cut of a knife from a friend is the nastiest of them all. Betrayal speaks volumes.
For Brutus, as you know was Caesar's angel. Judge O you gods, how dearly Caesar loved him! This was the most unkindest cut of all
An anecdote is used in order to make the crowd remember Caesar's former glory and success.
If you have tears prepare to shed them now
I remember the first time Cesar ever put it on
"Then I, and you, and all of us fell down, whilst treason flourished over us."
The use of this hyperbole makes the Roman people put their own values into question and think of who really was going to cause the fall of Rome; Caesar or the conspirators. The strategy is successful because the people realize that they had just praised traitors who eliminated a great leader, and soon after, they set out to attack the people with Caesar's blood on their hands.
