Antony’s evidence, facts, experts... ✤ (Evidence)“You all did see that on the Lupercal /I thrice presented him a kingly crown, /Which he did thrice refuse.

(III, ii, 129-130) ✤ (Fact) “I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.” (III, ii, 75) ✤ (Fact) “He was my friend, faithful and just to me” (III, ii, 86) ✤ (Expert) “But Brutus says he was ambitious” (III, ii, 87) ✤ (Fact) “He hath brought many captives home to Rome,” (III, ii, 89) ✤ (Expert) “Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; (III, ii, 99)

A teenager’s ethos ✤ Situation: You arrive home one hour after your curfew and your parent or guardian has decided that you should be grounded for a week as punishment. ✤ “Dad, I have never been late before, this is the first time.” ✤ “I was driving Sarah home because she was too upset to drive.” ✤ “Remember, I stopped at the store for you before I left, so I was late leaving the house.”
Anthony’s Ethos ✤ “I am meek and gentle with these butchers!” (III, i, 255) ✤ “Friends, Romans, countrymen... (III, ii, 7) ✤ “Have patience, gentle friends.. (III, ii, 141) ✤ “You you compel me then to read the will?” (III, ii, 158) ✤ “Bear with me;” (III, ii, 107)

(III, i, 105) ✤ “Romans, countrymen, and lovers...” (III, ii, 13) ✤ “Believe me for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor, that you may believe. Censure me in your wisdom, and awake your sense, that you may the better judge.” (III, ii, 15-17)

I didn’t call because you already have my phone.” ✤ “I know I’m late. I understand how you feel. Haven’t you ever been late and felt sorry about it?”
Antony’s Pathos ✤ “I I were disposed to stir/Your hearts and minds to mutiny and rage,/I should do Brutus wrong and Cassius wrong,/ Who, you all know, are honorable men.” (III, ii, 121-123 ✤ “You all did love him once, not without cause;/ What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?/ O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts, /And men have lost their reason!” (III, ii,, 104-106) ✤ “My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,/ And I must pause till it come back to me.” (III, ii, 107-108) ✤ “If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.” (III, ii, 170)
