I have also heavily annotated the speech to point out each subtle rhetorical move Antony makes  — he has to be very crafty since Brutus spoke first and turned the crowd against Caesar! Click here to download the PDF: Antony’s funeral oration annotated 

Students – DON’T PLAGIARIZE! This is here as a learning tool so that you can better appreciate Antony’s rhetoric and learn how to read more closely.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s my favorite cinematic version of Antony’s speech — Charleton Heston in 1970:

Thanks again to Mrs. LaBonville for the request! Teachers and students, keep those requests coming! The best videos are the ones people really need.

I’ve hit a bit of a rough patch lately (thank goodness for my wonderful husband, family, and friends!), so I haven’t gotten around to the 100 subscriber episode yet, but it’s on the way, I promise! Don’t forget to share this video with family and friends.  🙂
