If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.
…Look, in this place ran Cassius' dagger through;
See what a rent the envious Casca made;
Through this the well-beloved Brutus stabbed,
And as he plucked his cursed steel away,
Mark how the blood of Caesar followed it, (3.2.164-173)

How does Antony benefit from using the pathos appeal in the above quote?

A

Antony benefits by appealing to the citizens' emotions through pointing out the physical harm and injustice of each that was thrust upon Caesar. He evokes a sympathetic feeling from these citizens through his description of the pain Caesar must have felt.

B

Antony benefits from using this type of appeal because it allows the citizens to see the reasoning behind these murderous actions and shows the demented perspective of each of these conspirators.

C

Antony reaps the benefits of using the pathos appeal because the citizens come to the realization that what was done to Caesar was morally unjust, and the conspirators should be punished severely for their actions.
