Quote from: Juju on October 09, 2015, 02:48:35 pmKinda like Netlog, it was your average bad, low-end social network with like 2 users outside their country of origin and the only reason you're there is because some friend invited you and you like to sign up on social networks you would have like 2 friends on there anyway (and one of them is some random person who added you randomly), then it closed and forced you to migrate to a dating website, of all things. Like if they thought all their users were single or something. That's like, the most terrible decision I ever saw for a website, ever.Also yeah, very important to commit your work before leaving in emergency.

Josiah WinslowMr. AdamsEnglish 1013 October 2015 Here Was An Antony "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears." This quote has a certain recognitionnever matched by any other Shakespearean quote. In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Antony isgoing to speak at Caesar's funeral, shortly after conspirators - Brutus, Cassius and Casca - wentto the Capitol to assassinate him. Antony, a very close friend of Caesar's, goes to his funeral togive a speech to "bury Caesar, not to praise him". However, if you were to analyze his speech,you would find that the exact opposite is accomplished. Antony follows Brutus' earlier speechup by reminding the audience of Caesar's greatness, and disproving what Brutus had said. Initially, Antony asserts that the reason Brutus said he killed Caesar - ambition - wasnever in him, noting that "he hath brought many captives home to Rome" whose ransoms weregoing to the city, he wept "when that the poor have cried", and when Antony was brought to himto "present him a kingly crown", instead of accepting it, he refused three times for the Romans tolet him be crowned king. This is meant to show that Caesar is empathetic, but more importantly,you could not say that he was ambitious in any way. Also, he refers to Brutus often, playingdown his speech by repeatedly referring to him as an "honorable man" while implying he wasnever honorable in the first place. This begins to become more obvious as the speech goes on,going so far at one point as to call the conspirators "traitors". Afterwards, the focus of his speech begins to change. He mentions Caesar's will, in orderto appeal to the crowd's sense of greed. He says if they read it, they would practically want torun over and "kiss dead Caesar's wounds and dip their napkins in his sacred blood" and pass itaround their families as a sign of their legacy. In other words, they will think of Caesar highly,and they will love him more than ever. He then sternly questions why the conspirators wanted todesert Caesar, to so commit treason against him and all of Rome, saying Caesar is "marred, asyou see, with traitors". As a final point, he also downplays his oratory skills, insisting he couldnever speak to persuade; he just tells facts and "only speaks right on". Because of that, as he isgoing on speaking, the audience will start to believe the opposite about him - that he does speakto persuade. Finally, Antony notices that his words have galvanized the crowd into demanding tomake the conspirators pay for their actions. He reminds them of something he brought up earlier:"You have forgot the will I told you of." Wondering what treasures from Caesar await them, theycry out to see the will. Antony says that everyone will get "seventy-five drachmas" (~$1,900) -never even imaginable by today's standards! Now everyone in the audience believes that, if he'sgoing to give everyone in Rome that amount of money, he must care very deeply about them all.To add on to that, Caesar's private walks and paths have been left as public places - that is tosay, "common pleasures, to walk abroad, and recreate yourselves". Now, the crowd can saygoodbye to any bad thoughts they had about Caesar before, and hello to a compassion that willnever be matched. The audience has now been convinced of Caesar's greatness, and they aren'tgoing to support Brutus' viewpoint from this point forward. In conclusion, the purpose of Antony's speech was to stress Caesar's good qualities, andto berate Brutus and the other conspirators. In the beginning, he disproves what Brutus tried totell the audience before - that Caesar's ambition was the reason they killed him - by recountinga plethora of examples to the contrary. He also describes Brutus as an "honorable man", telling alie to imply that Brutus wasn't actually honorable. In the middle, he questions what drove Brutusand the conspirators to kill such a good man. Finally, after insisting reading Caesar's will wouldhurt them and be detrimental to them, he reads it. After the audience finds out that "he hath leftyou all his walks" and "seventy-five drachmas", they are finally convinced of what Antony said. "Here was a Caesar! when comes such another?"
