Caesar’s Funeral Speeches Brutus and Antony give speeches to the citizens of Rome, in which they try to persuade the crowd to their positions. Their persuasive weapons of choice are the three classical techniques, which include Logos, Pathos and Ethos. Both Romans try to persuade their citizens of opposite things, and their tactics are not the same. Brutus starts out with a speech intended to justify the killing of Caesar. After Brutus leaves though, Antony convinces the citizens to take down Brutus. Brutus uses the technique of Pathos with his quote, “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved/Rome more.” Brutus states that he loved Caesar, but had more love for his countrymen as a whole. He tries to convince the citizens that the Senators killed Caesar for the love of their country. People are emotional about their country, and they find the Senators’ reasons for killing Caesar to be out of love for the country. Emotionally, this is a very sound argument that expresses one’s love for his country.
