Brutus is an honorable man definition


A statement made several times in a speech by Mark Antony in the play Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare. The speech is Antony's funeral oration over Caesar, whom Brutus has helped kill. “Brutus is an honorable man” is ironic, as Antony is attempting to portray Brutus as ungrateful and treacherous. He succeeds in turning the Roman people against Brutus and the other assassins.
