Another example of his selflessness is in Act 2, Scene 1.Brutus decides not to tell Portia his plans for the murder of Caesar.
Another example of his selflessness is in Act 2, Scene 1.Brutus decides not to tell Portia his plans for the murder of Caesar.Brutus believes these letters are from the people of Rome and agrees to the death of Caesar.
He knew the commoners’ life would be difficult with the ruling of Caesar. This is shown again in the same Act and Scene when Brutus allows Mark Antony to speak at Caesar's funeral even though Cassius highly disagreed.
Brutus realized Caesar deserved a proper ceremony, and that the best way to do that would be to let Caesar's best friend speak.
The events that occurred because of Brutus' naiveness led to his downfall and death. This was when the fake letters are sent to him from the conspirators.
This was all a lie, a trap, to get Brutus to join in on the conspirator for Cassius knew he could not do it without Brutus' support.
Finally he shows his endearment for others in Act 5, Scene 5.
This is the scene in which Brutus kills himself partly because Cassius, his best friend, died.
Even though he killed Antony's best friend, Antony still recognized Brutus as ." He cared more about others than he did himself.
For instance, in the process of killing Caesar, he could have easily backed out because he knew he might have been punished, but he knew in the long run, that it would help the plebeians most.
He is too trustful and does not realize what people are capable of doing to him after making them his friend.
Due to this tragic flaw, a downfall of the character occurred soon after.
