Brutus and Antony are two very different character types. Brutus spends much of his time alone. He is a philosopher, a reader, a thinker, an introvert. Antony, on the other hand, is an extravert, an athlete, and a fun-loving party-goer. He is depicted that way even in Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra , in which he ruins his reputation, his partnership with Octavius, and finally his life because of his addiction to eating, drinking, amusement and love-making. Brutus, characteristically, makes a very solemn and logical speech to the mob. It is noteworthy that he talks about himself all the way through. Notice how many times he uses "me," "my," and "I" in the following excerpt. He is "the noblest Roman of them all," according to Antony at the end of the play; yet Brutus has at least one serious fault which leads to his downfall.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
