Marc Antony's Revenge in Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'

The Funeral Oration


Term Paper, 2010

7 Pages, Grade: 1,3


Abstract or Introduction

This paper will show which rhetorical strategies Antony uses to convince the plebeians of his opinion, that Caesar was murdered and no tyrant and therefore should be avenged. After Brutus' speech the audience is sure that it was tyrannicide and that they should be happy, so Antony did not have an easy task in convincing them, especially because he could not plot the rebellion openly because then he would have broken his word not to blame the conspirators. (3.1.245) So he has to use several stylistic devices and pretend that the audience plots it all by themselves and to analyze how the mood in the public changes throughout his speech is fascinating to retrace.
