Brutus, Honorable Man Brutus, an honorable conspirator? To be honorable is someone who has pride in the most humble way possible. An honorable person is someone who takes the time to be considerate of other people and is charitable towards others besides themselves. Honorability consists of someone who is fighting for what they believe in, despite the consequences. Brutus solely follows the code of honor and patriotism throughout the play. Although Brutus plotted an assassination of Caesar, he is not a villain but indeed an honorable man because he did everything he could for the sake of his country.
Brutus is an honorable, noble Roman. His intentions towards the death of Caesar were everything but vengeful. Shakespeare reveals Brutus's morality directly in the first act through the characterization from others. Cassius wants to recruit Brutus on the scandalous plot because of the reputation he has sustained. Cinna states "O Cassius if you could but win the noble Brutus to our party.."(Ⅰ.ⅰii.141-143). Cassius then says, "Him and his worth, and our great need of him, you have right well conceited. Let us go, for it is after midnight and ere day we will awake him and be sure of him." (Ⅰ.ⅰ.164-166). In this text, Cassius, Casca, and Cinna are discussing the killing of Caesar when Cinna says that we should obtain Brutus on their side because of his nobility. Cassius agrees with Cinna and states that Brutus is a great addition to them because of his honorable worth and that they should go to his house and convince him to join their side.This text proves that men with high status in the government such as Cassius and Conna think highly of him. They leer Brutus in the plot so that the repercussion of killing Caesar would be less harsh, based on how loved and honored Brutus was by all. All the citizens thought highly of Brutus so much that, even if they wanted to use him as a benefit to the cause, they wanted him as well for being a great man. During a conversation with Cassius and Brutus, Cassius suggests that the other conspirators do not want Caesar to become head of Rome. Brutus expresses "I would not Cassius, yet I love him well.." (I.ii.84) This quote proves Brutus apparently doesn't want Caesar to overrule and is worried that Caesar will become a corrupt ruler. But he admires him too much to take the matter into his hands. Brutus loves Rome and just wants to make sure that someone responsible will not be corrupt with its ruling. Meanwhile, Cassius is outraged with the amount of power Caesar obtains. To get the power that he desired he knew it was going to take some convincing to persuade Brutus to join the conspirators. So in result, he sends forged letters to Brutus because he knows that Brutus's love for Rome and its citizens will make him act in opposition to Caesar. After reading the letters, Brutus was manipulated to think that if Caesar becomes the head, then Rome will be negatively affected. To which is why he decides to help and join Cassius and the conspirators to kill Caesar. Furthermore, Brutus betrayed his friend, Julius Caesar and assassinated him for the good of Rome. After the death of Caesar, Brutus, Cassius, and Antony deliver a funeral speech. Brutus states in his statement, "...I slew my best lover for the good of Rome; I have the same dagger for myself when it shall please my country to need my death."(III.ii.42-44). Brutus is expressing that if he were in a position that was threatening Rome, then he would kill himself with the same dagger that took the life of his dear friend. This quote emphasizes that Brutus only wants what is best for Rome, and not what is best for him, personally. In the speech, Brutus gave he directly admitted his reason behind the homicide. In his speech, it states, "Not that I loved Caesar less, but that loved Rome more" (III.ii.21-22). He loves Rome so much that he'll risk his closest friends life, without even having a personal grudge against him. Brutus is very dedicated to Rome, and he just does whatever he feels
