  • Cassius Character Analysis
  • "Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world/ Like a Colossus, and we petty men/ Walk under his huge legs and peep about/ To find ourselves dishonourable graves./Men at some time are masters of their fates:/ The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,/ But in ourselves, that we are underlings"(1.2.142-148).
  • Cassius is displeased with Caesar's new role as he makes his way to the top, leaving Cassius, along with the other senators at the bottom as nothing more than slaves. This unveils his bitterness, which is just one of many of Cassius's character flaws.
  • "Well, Brutus, thou art noble; yet, I see,/ Thy honourable metal may be wrought/ From that it is disposed: therefore it is meet/ That noble minds keep ever with their likes;/ For who so firm that cannot be seduced?/ Caesar doth bear me hard; but he loves Brutus:/ If I were Brutus now and he were Cassius,/ He should not humour me. I will this night,/ In several hands, in at his windows throw,/ As if they came from several citizens,/ Writings all tending to the great opinion/ That Rome holds of his name; wherein obscurely/ Caesar's ambition shall be glanced at:/ And after this let Caesar seat him sure;/ For we will shake him, or worse days endure" (1.2.320-3340).
  • Here Cassius is explaining his plan to persuade Brutus into killing Caesar with him. Being as this plan goes in Cassius's favor, it reveals his manipulative nature.
  • "That you have wrong'd me doth appear in this:/ You have condemn'd and noted Lucius Pella/ For taking bribes here of the Sardians;/ Wherein my letters, praying on his side,/ Because I knew the man, were slighted off" (4.3.1-5).
