Loyalty in Julius Caesar Loyalty is the most important attribute. The definition of loyalty is faithfulness to one’s friends, country, ideals, etc. What would you do if your loyalties clashed with one another? You would have to pick. That choice can make or break a man, which I think ruined many men in Julius Caesar. No one knew who was an ally or an enemy. Someone who was one of your best friends could actually be your foe? This is what happened in Julius Caesar. I think loyalty is the very most important attribute because loyalty is being faithful.
Faithfulness is adhering firmly and devotedly. Loyalty is really important in life because without it no one would know who to trust. The world would not be a very safe place to be in. you can express loyalty by always being honest with your friends, family, and even co-workers. You should always be striving to keep being loyal. Mark Antony was a man who possessed loyalty. However, with Antony, loyalty to friends and those of his country did not conflict. He saw Caesar for what, I think, he truly was, a gracious Roman. Antony was a smart man.
Not being ure of the conspirators plot, he gave them a fair chance to Justify their inexcusable assassination. When Antony saw no reason for the death of Caesar he played it smart. He did not verbally attack the conspirators, he waited. Because Antony was noble and wise, he waited. He gave citizens of Rome something to think about. He turned the mob, which had turned against Caesar, for Caesar, against the conspirators. “Cry “Havoc! ” and let slip the dogs of war. ” Gracious Antony was eager to go to war to claim Justify Caesar’s death.
He was going to get payback on the urderers of “the noblest man that ever lived in the tide of times. ” Loyalty really means so much to me. My father, when I was very young, decided to be unfaithful to my mother. It was really hard on my mom to try and trust anyone else in her life. I know I could never be anything but loyal to my mom. I really hope that people understand how important loyalty is in life. I am always striving to be better than my dad and try and make my mom proud of me. The death of Caesar affected many. Brutus’ wife, Portia, suffered because she knew of the plot.
I think Brutus made a very ad mistake of telling her. Because of the corrupt acts of her husband, Portia took her life. Originally people were not grief wounded, but in time they remembered the love they had for Caesar. Because of this assassination, a war broke out. Mark Antony and Octavius’ troops versus Brutus and Cassius’ troops. Many people suffered through this war. Brutus decided it was best to take his own life, as did Cassius and Titinius. Maybe a message to readers is when one is blinded and refuses to see open minded there is no hiding from Justification. Julius Caesar By shsflyer22
