Brutus The Leader

Brutus is the most fit character to be a leader in the entire book. Brutus is a take

charge kind of person. When there is something that he does not like about the

government he takes charge and does something about it. Previously to Cassius even

entering Brutus had said to himself that Caesar must die. Brutus is also a very smart

character. When he is talking to himself about killing Caesar he compares him to a serpent

in his egg and says that he must be killed while he is still in his egg because when he

hatches (or is crowned king ) he will be more dangerous. Brutus is smart enough to know

that Caesar is just putting on an act and that once he becomes king he will not be as nice

as he is now. Even tough he is a smart and take charge character he also quite deceptive.

He shows just how deceptive he is when he kills Caesar. Brutus was very close to Caesar

and he still killed him. Brutus was the only character of the conspirators that was killed

Caesar for a some what of a good reason. Brutus killed him because he thought it would

be better for Rome while the others just did not want him to become more powerful than

themselves. Brutus felt that the death of Caesar would be the end of the absolute rule that

Caesar presently had. Brutus is a supporter of the republic government. Brutus says, “ We

all stand up against the spirit of Caesar / And in the spirit of men there is no blood” (II.i.

180-181). In this quote Brutus shows that everyone of the conspirators does stands

against what Caesar is doing but the point of killing him is to end what he is doing not to

dismember him or to kill the person Caesar but to kill what he is about.

Brutus is the best character in this book to be a leader. The first reason I think that

Brutus would make a good leader is that he does not want to be a king or have absolute

rule he would like to have a republican government. Brutus would also be a good leader

because he is not the type of person that would sit around and watch the government go

bad, if he saw a problem he would try his best to fix it. Brutus would also make a good

ruler because he is willing to fight for what he thinks is right. Brutus says, “Let us be

sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.” (II.i. 179). This quote shows how Brutus does not

wish to kill Caesar brutally but he would rather kill him with some sort of honor. Brutus

wants him to be killed in this “honorable” way because he does not want to be looked at

by the plebeians as murderers but as someone who was fighting for a cause.
