Antony was persuasive in the way that he used people to get whatever he wanted.
For example, Antony used Lepidus to seek revenge on all of the conspirators to take the blame for their deaths.
Antony is smart in the way that he manipulates people to his own advantage.
For example, Antony was manipulative in his emotional approach to persuade people to become outraged at Brutus.
Differences: Brutus spoke first, Anthony had the last word.
Brutus spoke directly in abstract terms about an unproven and unprovable shortcoming in Caesar's character and the threat it posed to the future of Rome."COMPARISON" Similarities: Brutus's purpose was to control the crowd as was Anthony's.Brutus began his speach with a hostile crowd against him as a murderer of the popular Julius Caesar.Anthony spoke ironically and sarcastically about the recent murder of the butchered man lain out before them: as concrete a subject matter imaginable.iend thinks I should use it to buy two or three T-shirts with the names of bands on front.His main purpose when addressing the crowd is to convince them of the fact that Caesar's death was fair and beneficial to Rome, and that no punishment or hate should fall on the conspirators.His speech has some rhetorical devices, but it mostly focuses on painting an image of Caesar as a bad influence on Rome. He did not participate in the murder, but he is getting a second chance thanks to the conspirators.However, we’re not allowed to wear those kinds of T-shirts to school.I know my parents would rather I used the gift certificate for school clothes. For example, Brutus spoke in a detached way about Caesar’s death while Antony spoke to the emotions of the crowd by crying and talking about all the good things that Caesar did for Rome.Antony’s intelligence was very apparent throughout the play and Brutus appeared to be naive about many things.
