Yesterday during class we recieved a study guide witha question htat really got me thinking: Who was the tragic hero in Julius Caesar? Until recently I didn’t believe there was a tragic hero in the play Julius Caesar. I just found out that the tragic hero is indeed, Brutus. However, unlike other tragic heroes Brutus only had one flaw that led to his death, jealousy. I don’t belive Caesar assassination was for the better. It was anger and jealousy that killed Caesar. The conspirators were so envious Caesar would be famous, rich and powerful they killed him. Brutus was somewhat hestitant to join in with the conspirators but eventually he gave in. The one flaw that killed Brutus was the jealousy for his friend Caesar. By no means however should we feel sorrow for Brutus he still murdered his friend in an attempt to usurp Caesar from his throne.
