A Comparison of Winston Churchill and Julius Ceasar

Uploaded by masone4718 on Nov 28, 2004

Winston Churchill is one of the most well known and successful leaders of the last century. Churchill had many characteristics that helped him during his rule. Some of these include his charisma, his inspiration, and his decisive actions. These characteristics are analogous to the traits that some characters express in the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. These particular attributes assisted Churchill in his rise to power as well as his rule as Prime Minister.

One of the most important characteristics that Winston Churchill expressed was his charisma.

The final piece of Winston Churchill’s charisma was his great oratory skills. Many authors and inspiring individuals cite many of his speeches. Churchill could make up speeches at the spur of the moment, and it is clear that his speeches broke the crust of the British social class system and brought together citizens divided by their accent, manners, education and wealth. One of his listeners thought that "every word was like a transfusion of drops of blood” (Winston Churchill - Schama...
