Brutus as tragic hero
Brutus as tragic hero

  • Fatal flaw?

Brutus as tragic hero1
Brutus as tragic hero

  • Fatal flaw = indecision, inability to accept change (Pompey’s death and the new direction of Rome), ambition

  • Downfall = ironic death as he falls on the same sword that kills Caesar. Being manipulated/persuaded by Cassius leads to his death. He gave Caesar the final blow that killed him.

  • High/Noble status = Well respected, loved as a true Roman
