Sample Conclusion

(Restatement of the thesis)


In conclusion, Brutus's idealism and extreme patriotism lead to his
demise, making him the real tragic hero of Shakespeare's play.
(Summary of body divisions)
(body summary 1) The patriotic Brutus not only agrees to assassinate
Julius Caesar, but also becomes the actual leader of the conspirators.
(body summary 2)
Later, his guilt haunts him in the form of Caesar's ghost. This is
Brutus's fateful moment of recognition that soon leads to his tragic
suicide.
(Significance of discussion)
By the play's end, Brutus has turned completely away from his true
feelings and pays the ultimate price. A great leader must be guided by
his heart as well as his mind.
