September 20, 2007 WR100 L1 Analysis of Antony's Speech Is He Ambitious? After Julius Caesar is assassinated by men of his own senate, Antony gives a speech regarding the ruler’s death to all countrymen. Antony gives the speech without preparing before hand and still does a stellar job. This speech taken from Arden Shakespeare’s, Julius Caesar is one of the most recognized speeches today, even though it is completely fictional. The words, “ Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears,” is one of the most known phrases of all time. Before the speech, Antony pretends to understand the conspirator’s concerns to protect himself from death. Originally, the conspirators did not want Antony to speak to the public because they were not sure that Antony was on their side but he then tricked them into believing that he was. Antony does not support the death of Caesar and does not believe it was justified. The people of the city are shocked at the death of their leader and do not know how to respond.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
