Everyone, we have to listen to Brutus and follow him, because he is our leader.
"And let us bathe our hands in Caesar's blood, up to the elbows, and besmear our swords: Then walk forth, even to the marketplace." (3.1.118-120)
"Peace, freedom, and liberty!" (3.1.122)
"That's all I seek; And I am also a suitor that I may display his body to the marketplace and in the pulpit, as is appropriate for a friend, speak during the course of the funeral." (3.1.248-252)
Prepare the body and follow us. And don't even think about saying anything bad about us Antony!
Brutus, don't trust Antony at all! Don't let him speak at Caesar's funeral!
YES BRUTUS, speak, we want to listen!
Let Brutus become Caesar!!!
My societal ill is credulousness, which means willing to believe or trust too easily; gullible. Cassius and the other men are controlled by Brutus, their new leader, since they murdered Julius Caesar, the past leader. Brutus told them to help him kill Caesar, to bathe their arms in Caesar's blood, and that's what they all did.
"Only yesterday the word of Caesar might have stood against the world. Now he lies there, and no one will stoop so low as to pay him respect. O gentlemen! If I wanted to stir up your hearts and minds to mutiny and rage, I would be doing Brutus wrong, and Cassius wrong, who, you all know, are such honorable men . I will not do them wrong. Instead, I choose to wrong the dead to wrong myself and you, Rather than wronging such honorable men." (3.2.130-139)
They are such honorable men for murdering our dear friend and leader.
They all trusted Brutus and all the decisions he has made. Caesar's good friend, Antony found out that they all murdered him and wants to speak at the funeral. Cassius thinks it's an awful idea because of the bad things that Antony could say about them. Brutus refuses to listen to him and they all end up trusting his idea. Later on you find out that Cassius was right and everything went terribly wrong for them.
We shall guard them from the soldiers!
"Brutus, do not provoke me, I will not put up with it. You forget who you are when you try to put restrictions on me. I am a soldier, I, more experienced, better able than you to make decisions about how things should be managed." (4.3.30-34)
Brutus is speaking at Caesar's funeral in front of a large crowd of people that all put their faith in Brutus and trust him so much. They are cheering because of his speeches.
"But Cassius is no more. O setting sun, as in thy red rays thou dost sink to night, so in his red blood Cassius' day is set." (5.3.67-69)
Antony speaks next at Caesar's funeral and tells the absolute truth about what kind of person Brutus is and all of his men. He said some very cruel things about them, but he wanted everyone to know the truth. The crowd believed Antony and they all suddenly grew a strong hatred for Brutus and his men.
Cassius confronts Brutus about how awful he treated him, how Brutus thinks he is so much better and above everyone else, and how he is no better than Caesar. Brutus yet again, treats him as if he is nothing and ignores him.
Give up Cassius, you are nothing and always will be! If I say you are nothing, then you are nothing.
When Cassius died, it meant that the battle against Brutus and Cassius ended up as Brutus' victory. He did't care about me above everyone he just felt the pain and sorrow that he felt because his friend died. He complemented how brave and strong the other men were about his death.
You are very brave Titinius, to have crowned dead Cassius, as we all sit here and mourn his death!
