In the course of teaching high school sophos for thirty years, I have read Julius Caesarthan thirty times, and I never grow tired of its richness of detail or the complexity of its characters Almost every year, I end up asking myself the same simple question Whom do I like better Cassius or Brutus and almost every year my answer is different from what it was the year before On one hand, we have Cassius, the selfish, manipulative conspirator who, after the assassination, shows himself to be an impulsive, loyal friend and an able politician, and, on the other hand, Brutus, the conscientious intellectual and lover of the republic who becomes, under the weight of his guilt, an irritatingly scrupulous moralist and an inept generalconcerned with reputation than success And then of course there is Antony brilliant, vicious, unscrupulous, and ultimately as unknowable as a tornado This is a great play about politics and human character. The Tragedie Of Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599 It is one of several plays written by Shakespeare based on true events from Roman history, which also include Coriolanus and Antony and Cleopatra Although the play is named Julius Caesar, Brutus speaksthan four times as many lines as the title character and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus struggle between the conflicting demands of honor, patriotism, and friendship 1971 1334 161 16 1382 177 9789644459733 159944 Cowards die many times before their deaths The valiant never taste of death but once Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, It seems to me most strange that men should fear Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come Beware the Ides of March Beware to those that have aspirations to rule You may encounter many enemies People who will thwart your plans People quite possibly afraid of your genius People suffering from delusions of grandeur I always say keep an eye on the son of your favorite squeeze Marcus Junius Brutus, what a fickle man, you are running around like a plucked chicken looking for your missing headHe seems completely blind to reality, an ineffectual idealist whose idealism cannot prevent him from committing a senseless and terrible crimeYou let the insidious Cassius fill your ear with dilettante, conspiratorial nonsenseCadaverous and hungry looking, much given to brooding, and a great reader a scorner of sports and light diversions, a very shrewd judge of human nature, and deeply envious of those who are greater than himselfSo the question remains, is Cassius the shrewd judge of character, capable of seeing the future, or is he the man consumed by jealousy who wants to see the mighty Julius Caesar fall You fell for that first man of Rome, the republic is your responsibility, and all that As it turns out, you aren t the only dagger maestro in your family Gaius Servilius Structus Ahala, a distant relative of yours, saved Rome from another tyrant named Spurius Maelius Of course, that is all in the far distant past and might even be a myth, but Cassius knows the right buttons to push And therefore think him as a serpent s egg,Which, hatch d, would, as his kind, grow mischievous,And kill him in the shell You might have said the line Brutus, but the stench of it, the green gray smoke of it, smacks of Cassius Wouldn t it have beenprudent to see what Caesar intended to do with his power before you stab, stab, STABBED him to death Et tu, Brute That must have felt like a punch in the gut given that you had his blood all over your sword and hands at the time Caesar s parting guilt laden gift to you I m just putting a few thoughts out there in the wind How d you feel about Caesar putting the sausage to your mother Did the bedposts banging against the wall feel like a drummer hammering your skull Maybe Cassius doesn t have to be that convincing CassiusIt must have been a real kick in the subligaculum when that hack William Shakespeare named the play after Julius Caesar My god, man, you have four times the lines, and for most of the play Caesar is nothingthan an apparition An annoying apparition, by the way, who keeps showing up at the most inconvenient times and saying things like, Let loose the dogs of war Letting Marc Antony live was probably a mistake He isn t the brightest star in the firmament, but he is a brave soldier A good leader, but better as number two than number one You aren t really a mad dog killer after all, so the thought of killing Antony is like crunching on the bones of a stale dormouseOf course will seem too bloody, Caius Cassius,To cut the head off and then hack the limbs,Like wrath in death and envy afterwards For Antony is but a limb of Caesar.Let s be sacrificers, but not butchers, Caius.We all stand up against the spirit of CaesarMagnanimous of you, Brutus Well said, but did you think ZOINKS after Antony dropped that rap battle speech at Caesar s funeral Marc Antony 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 oft interred with their bones So let it be with Caesar The noble BrutusHath told you Caesar was ambitious If it were so, it was a grievous fault,And grievously hath Caesar answer d it.Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest For Brutus is an honourable man So are they all, all honourable men You remember the one, right The speech where he basically calls you a douche bag under the guise of singing your praises I m not going to talk about the disaster at the battle of Philippi I think that might have been where the term Caesar salad came into common usage Marc Antony and Octavius join forces and break the will of your men We are all ready, way past ready, for you to fall on your own sword In fact, I would have happily given you a firm Caligae to the arse if you needed a little extra encouragement If you wish to seeof my most recent book and movie reviews, visit also have a Facebook blogger page at This tale in a nutshell The most powerful, famous man in Roman history, her greatest conqueror, loved by the adoring , poor population, of Rome, and Cleopatra, also that has brought glory and prosperity, too, the army will follow anywhere he leads, certain victory and riches to the soldiers, the Senate has given numerous awards to him, Rome s enemies tremble at the name of the mighty Caesar, but of course nobody is loved by all, men are small, petty, and jealous, why should he be above them, fearing he, becoming King the less talented and not as successful, always will ask this eternal questionThe world is full of chaos, by men who believe in a cause, they never see the consequences, of their actions, what happens, afterwards, most don t care A conspiracy by a conservative faction of the Roman Senate, organized by Marcus Brutus and Gaius Cassius, an upper class clique, the aristocrats, didn t like Caesar s rule, but pretended to be his friends, had contempt for the plebeians, common citizens and on the Ides 15th of March, 44 B.C stabbed the great, brilliant warrior, 23 times Et tu, Brutus Those Senators were out of touch with reality, believing they would be praised for their treachery, yet when Mark Anthony, gives a fiery speech, to the dazed, vast crowds, asking them, when will there be another man, like him, never, they shout back, at Caesar s funeral, but Brutus, said he was ambitious and shows the bloody body , clothes, of the fallen, and reads his will, giving every poor citizen who he loved , a vast amount of money and a park, his own gardens, to the lowly , riots ensue, the surprised assassins, flee for their lives out of the huge cityAt the decisive battle of Philippi, in Greece, Mark Anthony and young Octavian, Augustus Caesar Julius Caesar s great nephew, fought Brutus and Cassius, a total of 400,000 soldiers , for the control of Rome, the winners live, the losers diebut none were generals like Caesar A great, immortal play, that asks who is right and who is wrong , Brutus and Cassius or Caesar, generations past, and in the unforeseen future, will deliberate this unanswerable question, politics can be deadly, when one group believes they know best, anyone opposing them, will be butchered, for the good of the state, these pitiable people, cease to be human, the killers, destroy , but the blood sprays on all, as later the victims, friends, fight back , vengeance is very sweet, thousands , even millions may perish, but the gore continues unrelenting, until the people have had enough, or no one is left, it may go on for a long, long, while, though There are no noblemen, in hate reread for my Shakespeare classI really do love this play but I was also in it, with an Overly Large Yet Worth It Role, and at this point I have no energy to have thoughts on it, we ll talk about why I love this show and then we ll end with the long list of terrible memes also why the FUCK did I give this four stars it s a five goodnight I love this underrated play WHY THIS PLAY IS FUCKING AWESOMEOkay, first of all, and no one else cares it s pretty damn historically accurate as Shakespeare goes And I m a stressed Latin student So that was nice to see It s also a really good play as characters go Every character parallels around three other characters in interesting ways Brutus especially is a foil to all of the other three leads All the relationships between the characters are so interesting and heartbreaking This is also just one of the best written plays I ve ever read I love how Shakespeare varies his meter for every character Okay, example time Brutus ends at least half his statements with weak endings rather than in typical Iambic Pentameter Cool, right Maybe it s not if you don t know what any of that meant Nevermind But my nerd ass loves it Also, so much rhetoric That assembly scene changed me as a person You could write a freaking term paper on that scene and still not fully analyze the whole thingAnd it s still a relevant story today This play has some really fucking relevant political commentary There s actually a line in this play about how this bloody scene, this surprise betrayal, will be reenacted a thousand times over in the future, and it s maybe the most brilliant line of all time, ever I love it I can t believe we cut it Beyond all that, though, this is just one of the most narratively strong plays I ve ever read This is my favorite kind of tragedy Every single character has sensical motivations There s no villain There s no fate as the villain Every bad thing that happens is the result of a character decision I just really love this play narratively SOME MEMES, FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT I can t believe Brutus and Cassius are being chewed on by Satan in hell they didn t deserve this Dante you take that shit back they were just trying to stop a fucking dictator good god comparing Caesar to Trump is unfair Caesar cared about poor people how is that comparable to our current president please just look at this add bro to every single line of The Tent SceneTM and it s 100% better trust me I Am A Scientist et tu, brote some people stab emperors to coup Cassius every single time something goes wrong time to die lmao au where this whole thing takes place on tumblr and Antony s speech is just a callout post and no one stays in their lane that Mean Girls version of the speech is really fucking accurate she even gets in Brutus is just as cute as Caeser and if that s not something Cassius would say I don t know what is sorry Shakespeare I really do love your work I don t only make memes about it and yet holy fuck i m really sorry this play is literally Macbeth except less supernatural,Roman, andgay there s also this weird Romeo and Juliet esque triple suicide in which a character who has never shown up before is suddenly Cassius best friend and then they kill themselves and lie dead next to each other over a misunderstanding it s weird and then Brutus comes in and dies too so triple suicide cool I feel like I should mention that random new character is quite literally named Titty nius Shakespeare, on his 1610 ao3 account lmao let s write a crossover of Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth except Roman au this play invented the bury your gays trope or maybe someone just yelled the floor is stabbing Caesar I m so very sorry for this review I regret it alreadyBlog Goodreads Twitter Youtube Book ReviewIn 1599,
