How does Antony succeed in instigating the mob to take revenge for Caesars assassination?

Dear Student,

Antony brought out the treachery of the conspirators through his speech. He made the mob understand the real situation through his words. He used Caesar’s cloak to show the mob how Caesar was stabbed. He also showed the crowd the bloody robe and displayed the thirty-three stained holes on it. Though he called the conspirators as honourable people, his tone made the crowd make out the real meaning of his words. They could understand that the conspirators had no good reasons and that they were not honorable men at all. Thus, Antony succeeded in instigating the mob to take revenge for Caesar.
