Power Language

William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar shows readers the outcome of powerful language through the literary elements of rhetorical devices and manipulation, “Men at some time are masters of their fates. The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings. Brutus and Caesar what should be in that "Caesar"? Why should that name be sounded more than yours? Write them together, yours is as fair a name;” (Act1Sc.2L146-153). This argument had started Brutus to ponder on the thought of Cassius words about Caesar. Antony had manipulated the crowd with his repetition calling of Brutus and the other Senators as honorable institute the crowds to think otherwise."And Brutus is a honorable man/and sure he is an honorable man." (Actlll, Sc2, 103-108 "They were traitors. Honorable men?" (Actlll Sc.2 165)
