Brutus finally decides that too much power in one person is bad…
Think About It! From his poem, “Epitaph on a Tyrant,” does… W.H. Auden feel the same way as Brutus?
Perfection of a kind, was what he was after, And the poetry he invented was easy to understand;
He knew human folly like the back of his hand, And was greatly interested in armies and fleets;
