Best Answer

Brutus, or Marcus Junius Brutus Caepio, was a Roman senator and one of several men who conspired to assassinate Julius Caesar. Although not politically ambitious, Brutus was initially a money lender who charged high interest rates then later as a senator became unsatisfied with the politics of Julius' Dictatorship in Rome (Brutus was a republican). Brutus' mother was also a mistress of Caesar's.

Based on what I've read, I would not consider Brutus a good man.

What is Marcus Brutus Tragic flaw?

Like most of the characteristics chosen as "tragic flaws", the characteristics of Brutus most usually chosen are in fact not flaws at all. Brutus was "an honourable man", "the most noble Roman of them all". These are good things. The message of the play is that an honourable man, a noble man, a man of incorruptible virtue, cannot succeed in a political world of corrupt realpolitik as practised by Mark Antony. It is not Brutus, but Rome which is flawed, and Brutus cannot cure that flaw simply by getting rid of Caesar. His tragedy is that he is flawless.
