Whose speech is this from? What does it mean? What sort of irony is in this speech and how is it shown? "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears./ I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him./ The evil that men do lives after them;/ The good is often interred in their bones"
It is from Antony's eulogy. He gets their attention and then he says that he does not want to praise Caesar. When people die, only their wrongdoings and evils are remembered. All their virtues and accomplishments seem to die with them. There is verbal irony (sarcasm) in the speech. When Antony says "Brutus is an honorable man" he means it sarcastically. It is clear that Brutus is not good from Antony's speech.
