Anyone Know Anything About Julius Caesar?

I'm puttting this here because it's where I feel it will be best seen. Tomorrow I have to write an essay on how Brutus was the tragic hero, can anyone give me examples/reasons/support for this so that I can write an essay's worth. I'd appreciate it so much, thanks everyone...

You mean Shakespeare's Caesar or the real one? Shakespeare's was far more glamorous and honorable than the real GJ Caesar. SEND IN POINTS FOR FANTASY SEASON DAMN IT!

We just got through reading it. I thout Ceasar was the tragic hero, but anyways. I think the only reason Brutus would be considered a tragic hero is because I guess that he was trying to look out for his "Rome" and that he felt that Ceasar would bring the Roman empire down. Cassius and Brutus felt that Ceasar was a threat to the roman empire and that he was becoming too powerful and they felt that they did the citizens of Rome is deed.

Brutus thought he would bring the Roman Republic down not the empire

He would be considered a tragic hero in Shakespeares work because he is presented as a person who is acting with honourable intentions but is also clearly being manipulated by Cassius and to a lesser extent feelings of resentment towards Caesar's ever increasing individual power when the Republic was not meant to be about the person but simply Rome.

Shakespeares account is a very romanticised version of history - Caesar was quite a mean bastard.

i would give you a paper i wrote on a topic similar to this a few years ago but i've changed computer a billion times since then i don't know where it is

also because he ends up getting screwed over by Mark Anthony in a pretty tragic way

Damn Mark Anthony and Octavian screwed their plans up
