Storyboard Text

  • Act I - Anthony Bissey
  • "Go, go, good countrymen, and, for this fault, / Assemble all the poor men of your sort; / Draw them to Tiber banks and weep your tears / Into the channel, till the lowest stream / Do kiss the most exalted shores of all." (I:i:ln 57-61).
  • Welcome Back, Caesar!
  • Act I - Anthony Bissey
  • "Beware the ides of March." (I:ii:ln 23).
  • "He is a dreamer, let us leave him. Pass." (I:ii:ln 24).
  • Act I - Anthony Bissey
  • "Indeed, it is a strange-disposèd time: / But men may construe things after their fashion, / Clean from the purpose of the things themselves." (I:iii:ln 33-35).
  • "When these prodigies / Do so conjointly meet, let not men say, / 'These are their reasons, they are natural,' / For I believe they are portentous things / Unto the climate that they point upon." (I:iii:ln 28-32).
  • In Act I: Scene I, many of the townspeople, including a carpenter and shoemaker are celebrating for Caesar, who has defeated Pompey. Flavius and Marullus hear of this, so they go to send the crowds back home, due to their strong support for Pompey. Both believe that if the crowds are sent home, Caesar may think he is not as strongly supported. They are mainly upset with the townspeople because their habits in who they support are very fickle and change with each leader.
  • Act III - Anthony Bissey
  • "Stoop, Romans, stoop, / And let us bathe our hands in Caesar's blood / Up to the elbows, and besmear our swords." (III:i:ln 105-107).
  • In Act I: Scene II, Caesar and his group prepare for a race for the Feast of Lupercal. He chooses his right-hand man, Antony to run the race, but has to touch Calpurnia, in order for her to bear children. Although it is a myth, Caesar plans to go through with it because he is in need of a heir to the throne. Before leaving, the group is met by a soothsayer, who informs them of March 15th. Due to Caesar's personality, he brushes the statement off and continues his plan to attend the race.
  • Act III - Anthony Bissey
  • In Act I: Scene III, Casca and Cicero begin to discuss the events of the storm going on. Both believe that the gods are upset with them for what is going on in Rome. During the conversation, Casca states how he sees a slave with his hand on fire, a lion in the marketplace, men walking down the streets while on fire, and an owl in town during the daytime. They believe that the occurrences are not natural, but are signs of bad things to come.
  • Act III - Anthony Bissey
  • "Truly, my name is Cinna." (III:iii:ln 27).
  • "Tear him to pieces! He's a conspirator." (III:iii:ln 28).
  • In Act III: Scene I, the conspirators are able to assassinate Caesar while at the Senate. They were capable because Metellus began to beg to Caesar at his seat, causing the others to join. Afterwards, the men all gather at Caesar's body. There, the men dip their hands in his blood to show the townspeople the good they have performed for them.
  • In Act III: Scene II, Brutus and Antony maker their speeches to the townspeople. Brutus gives his first, and informs the crowd of the reasons why Caesar was killed, which causes them to support him. Right after, Brutus departs, and Antony gives his speech. He indirectly makes his speech to persuade the listeners to declare war/violence on the conspirators. His plan goes through by bringing Caesar's fake will and by giving ways Caesar loved his people, yet never criticizes the conspirators.
  • "As / Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, / I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him: but, as / He was ambitious, I slew him." (III:ii:ln 24-27).
  • "But yesterday the word of Caesar might / Have stood against the world; now lies he there, / And none so poor to do him reverence." (III:ii: ln 119-121).
  • In Act III: Scene III, the townspeople begin to riot throughout Rome. Their rioting is focused on the conspirators, due to Antony's funeral speech that indirectly persuades them to. First, the people ask a man named CInna the poet several questions. Once stating that his name is Cinna, the townspeople believe he is the conspirator. He tries to tell them he is a poet, but they drag him away to be beaten to death.
