Room For Justice? Julius Caesar is a tragic play written by the famous writer William Shakespeare. The play is about a dictator called Julius Caesar who was assassinated in the “fateful ides” of March. Brutus and Cassius, the conspirators, are both important characters in the misfortune of Caesar and in several ways are either similar or/ different from one another. This was evidenced in their personalities and private thoughts on conspiring against Caesar.
are away from work. Flavius and Marullus are surprised to see them roaming the streets on a work day, so they question them about what their trades are and why they are not working. The commoners reveal that they are taking the day off work to see Caesar (who is returned in victory from the civil war) and celebrate his triumph over Pompey (opposing general in the civil war). Marullus chastises the commoners for celebrating Pompey's defeat, and reminds them that they have often celebrated Pompey's
In Julius Caesar, we see a brief picture of Roman life during the time of the First Triumvirate. In this snap shot, we see many unfortunate things. Shakespeare gives us the idea that many people try to circumvent what the future holds, such as unfortunate things, by being superstitious. Superstition seems to play a role in the basic daily life of most Roman citizens. The setting of the first scene is based upon superstition, the Feast of Lupercal. This feast is in honour of the god Pan, the queen
never deceives anyone. Although he did murder Julius Caesar, it was for the good of Rome, not to deceive Caesar. Everything that he did was for the benefit of someone else. Even though he killed Antony's best friend, Antony still recognized Brutus as "the noblest Roman of them all."(5.5.68-70) He does this in Act 5, Scene 5, after Brutus' death because of Brutus, the only conspirator that actually killed Caesar because "not that I lov'd Caesar less but that I lov'd Rome more. (3.2.22) He cared
conflicting perspectives on Julius Caesar in a way that challenges and intrigues an audience? Shakespeare reworks the original material of Plutarch’s history to present conflicting perspectives of Julius Caesar and his assassination. Through his shaping of the events into a double tragedy – the tragedy of the great but blind Caesar and the tragedy of the honourable but politically inept Brutus – and through his use of a range of characters, each with their own view of Caesar, Shakespeare challenges his
“Julius Caesar” Rome was a great civilization established in 753 B.C. For two-hundred years it was plagued by Tarquin kings who were tyrants. These kings ceased to exist by 510 B.C. when they were over thrown by Lucius Junius Brutusin. The republic they fought so hard to build in Rome would soon to be threaten by a man named Julius Caesar, but due to Caesars beliefs, motives, and actions veni, vedi, vici a saying meaning I came, I saw, I conquered would fail to be applied to Rome in Caesars case.
Rome Needs Marc Antony Rome lost their great leader Julius Caesar in a horrible way but now someone needs to replace him. Rome needs a loyal, honest and brave leader that can represent its people. The ideal person to take the throne is Marc Antony. He is a very humble and noble man that would be able to take the place of his best friend Caesar and might even do a better job. The murder of Julius Caesar was unjustified. Brutus told the Romans that Caesar's death was due to his
“Methinks there is much reason in his sayings./ If thou consider rightly of the matter/ Caesar has had great wrong.” Antony manages this by some clever oratorical tricks: at no point does he actually say that Brutus was wrong, in fact he continually repeats that “Brutus in an honourable man.” Caesar was killed for being too ambitious, and Antony produces various pieces of evidence to refute this: that Caesar cried alongside the poor when they were in trouble, that he refused the crown when it was
