According to the specifications and qualifications for a Shakespearean tragedy, Brutus, one of the men who conspired against Julius Caesar, can be considered a tragic hero....
Many of them, including Shakespeare's portrayal of Julius Caesar's murder and the resulting events for Rome and for Caesar's conspirators, have been put into the "tragedies" category.
William Shakespeare, in his play Julius Caesar, examines the struggles for the title of the noblest Roman between ethical Marcus Brutus and other power thirsty Romans to reveal the most honorable man.
The End of Caesar On March 15 (The Ides of March!) Caesar was lured to the forum by a fake petition.
Once there, he was stabbed by the conspirators 23 times!
More than 60 men were there to witness the assassination of the most powerful man of the time!
This was the most unkindest cut of all; For when the noble Caesar saw him stab, Ingratitude, more strong than traitors arms, Quite vanquished him : then burst his mighty heart And in his mantle muffling up his face, Even at the base of Pompeys statue, Which all the while ran blood, great Caesar fell.
Marcus Brutus, and Julius Caesar, display all the qualities of the `tragic hero': they are great men, with character flaws, and as a result of a mistake in decision-making many people suffer.
The play Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, provides a good example to how the quote is shown to be accurate." The calamities of tragedy do not simply happen, nor are they sent [by the gods]: they proceed mainly from actions, and those actions of men." This statement is profoundly proven through the past and present actions of the conspirators throughout the play.

Just as many people have used rhetorical appeals to persuade someone, Anthony also uses the rhetorical appeals; heartfelt pathos, questionable logos and evident ethos in William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar to convince his audience that Caesar was not ambitious and that Caesar was innocent Initially, emotional appeal also known as pathos represents...
By portraying the qualities of honorable Brutus, William Shakespeare, in his tragedy Julius Caesar, proves that anyone with good intentions, nobility, and the ability to recognize flaws can be a true hero.
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is based on an historical event- the assassination of Julius Caesar; however, the story revolves around the conspirators, not Caesar....
They do this since they are jealous of his growing power and popularity in Rome.
The prediction of the soothsayer came to pass when Caesar was assassinated on 15th March by Brutus who was convinced by Cassius to carry out the evil plan after filling his ears with hatred for Caesar.
Together with Cassius (Act 3, scene 1), they finally assassinate Caesar by means of petition brought by Mettelus Climber who was pleading on behalf of his banished brother.
Ambition is also seen where Caesar competes for absolute power of Rome despite being discouraged by the words of the soothsayer and the dream of his wife.
