Antony wins the crowd
At Caesar’s funeral, the citizens of Rome demand an explanation for Caesar’s murder. Brutus speaks with logic and reason, asking them if they would ‘rather Caesar were living, and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all freemen?’ The crowd seem satisfied and Brutus leaves. Then Antony comes in with Caesar’s body and shows Caesar’s wounds to the crowd. He reads his will out loud, telling them that Caesar has left money and land to the people. The crowd turn against Brutus and the conspirators run away.
