A friendly storyboard explaining the plot of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
Long ago in 44 B.C Julius Caesar ruled Rome. Although he was conceited everyone loved him...well...almost everyone.
BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH!!
While Caesar is on parading and flaunting his glory, this evil dude Cassius meets up with one of Caesars friends Brutus. They talk and decide they should kill Caesar. Cassius gets some of his friends together to help.
I agree Cassius. We shall strike tomorrow.
The day after was the ides of March. Caesar's wife explained to Caesar about the dream she had where he was going to get stabbed and killed. He left to go to another parade anyway.
Don't go out. You are going to get killed.
Caesar went and got attcked by Brutus Cassius and his gang. They stabbed him in the back (both metaphorically and literally.) Before Caesar died he said to Brutus "Et tu Brute," which means it's you Brutus?
Es tu Brute.
After this Brutus left the building to crowds of people that had gathered outside. He explained how Caesar was almost immortal and full of himself. Everyone agreed until one of Caesars friends called Mark Anthony come out and said that is wrong. After this the crowds were angry with Cassius and Brutus so they chased them to Asia Minor.
You shall pay Cassius and Brutus.
One night Brutus saw Caesar's ghost and got so freaked out he killed himself. After this there was a big battle. Cassius also killed himself and Mark Anthony had won.
