How can I improve my essay about The Tragedy of Julius Caesar?





This is my rough draft. What are the problems?In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, probably the most tragic figure is Brutus. When the story began, Brutus was living a perfectly stable and happy life. But by the end of the story, Brutus had lost everything. Although Brutus’ intentions were noble, his foolishness and hasty thinking lead him directly into a hole. Such foolishness is like a form of poison, and will inevitably lead to disastrous consequences. The story’s ability to clearly express this idea is why one of the main themes of the story is that foolishness, and hasty thinking, will most certainly lead to harsh consequences. In Act I, the reader quickly learns that Brutus is a close friend of Caesar, and that Cassius hates Caesar. Brutus is also coming to fear that Caesar’s many victories might lead Rome into a dictatorship. Cassius soon sees this as a way to manipulate Brutus and decides to try to trick Brutus into assassinating Caesar. Because of Brutus’ foolishness, he is able to easily believe what Cassius tells him, without analyzing the situation for himself. Cassius later does many things in order to trick Brutus. For example, Cassius throws rocks with notes attached near Brutus, with the notes reading fake messages from the Roman citizens wanting Caesar out of the government. This was when Brutus decided to join the conspirators. After deciding to help the conspirators assassinate Caesar, Brutus then plans on ending the rise of dictatorship soon by killing Caesar. Brutus’ haste in deciding this prevented him from realizing whether what he was doing would bring good to Rome, or result in destruction. Since the death of a person is irreversible, Brutus should have acted more wisely than to quickly assume that what he was doing was the best for Rome. Instead, Brutus should have evaluated his situation and determine whether it would be better to kill Caesar, or to let Caesar live. If Brutus were to do this, he would have been more likely to realize the harms that his actions would have caused by killing Caesar. After Brutus killed Caesar, at first, it seemed that what he did was good, although it quickly became evident that no good could have come out of this. The Roman public raged and chaos rose with the desire to kill the conspirators for their actions. Brutus and Cassius then had to build an army to fight off Antony and Octavius’ armies. This bloody battle resulted with the deaths of both Cassius and Brutus. By the end of the story, Brutus had lost everything. This shows how foolishness can never bring good fortune, and that it is always best to think about your actions before doing them. In any situation, if a person can be easily deceived, that person is likely to do things without truly understanding what he or she is doing. This is why foolishness can, and almost always will, lead to harmful endings.

    Overall, you have an excellent draft. Details are explained and it’s easy to follow.The only thing I can offer is how I like stories to be told. Semantics, I guess, but I’m a perfectionist.I prefer something like this to be ‘current’, as if I’m living it as I’m reading it. For example, the first few sentences:In The Tragedy of Julius Caeser, probably the most tragic figure is Brutus. When the story begins, Brutus is living a perfectly stable and happy life. By the end of the story, he loses everything. Although his intentions are noble, his foolishness and hasty thinking lead him directly into a hole.Like I said, what you have is really good. You need to know your target audience to decide how to write it. I may be way off base, but… :)
