Shakespeare's Julius Caesar


William Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar attempts to show the audience the effects of propaganda through the use of rhetorical devices and point of view. A sly person can easily use propaganda to turn justice into treason and vice versa. Antony made a speech using rhetorical devices to humble himself and Caesar. The speech made the crowd believe that the “justice” behind the murder was all baloney. After the crowd became angry, Antony revealed who betrayed Caesar and manipulated them into going after the traitors.
