Brutus and Mark Anthony

Extracts from this document...


Coursework Brutus- Brutus has to go out and explain to an angry roman crowd as to why he killed Ceaser and to why he conspired against him. He has to win them over and possibly take over Ceasers place. He is trying to win the crowds support for his cause, "hear me for my cause".
