Make sure to get touched by Antonius so you can be healed.
Yes touch me.
Act 1 Scene 3
are the gods mad at me. Or are they trying to warn me
Pompey and Caesar used to share power over Rome together. However they got into a fight and during that fight Pompey was killed. so the people of Rome are celebrating the victory of Caesar. However, the followers of Pompey were not too pleased with the celebration.
Caesar is with Calpurnia at the festival to make sure she touches Antonius because it is thought that if you touch someone running the race you will be healed of your diseases. Calpurnia has a disease where she can not bear a child. Caesar needs to have a kid so he can declare himself as dictator for life.
Caesar sees all of the bad things going on around him and realizes the gods are mad or are trying to tell him something. Then the soothsayer comes out and says be careful of the ides of March. however Caesar does not think anything of this and ignores the warning.
