In act 1, Scene 2, Antony offers Caesar the crown, After the race for the Feast of Lupercal. Caesar refuses the crown, but ¨he was very loath to lay his fingers off it¨ (240-241). This scene is so important because its the start of Caesars hunt for the crown, which gave the conspirators reason to take charge. This scene made the conspirators realize Caesar may be ¨dangerous¨. The citizens dont agree, but they are convinced without much effort.
Act IV: Sc 3
In Act 1, Scene 2 Calpurnia, Caesars wife has a nightmare about his death. In line 20 Calpurnia says her dream,¨Recounts most horrid sights seen by the watch¨. This scenes important because itś predicting the future. Calpurnia, Soothsayer, and the servant tried to warn him. Caesar continued to be over confident and goes to work anyways.
Act V: Sc 4
In Act 3, Scene 1, The conspirators walk Caesar to the palace. Each conspirator took turns stabbing Caesar with a dagger. In line 75 Caesar says "Et tu, brute?"Brutus was the last to stab him. This was important because Brutus was supposed to be Caesars right hand man. This starts the war between Antony and the conspirators.
In Act 5, Scene 3 Cassius and Brutus get into an argument. Brutus was mad because Cassius would not pay his troops. Cassius was mad because Brutus killed Lucilus Pella. Brutus states "Porche died eating hot coal". The argument ends because they apologize but this scene is important because it is holding them up giving Antony and the army an advantage.
Young Cato is killed, and Lucilius is captured by Antony's soldiers who think that he is Brutus. Antony arrives asking for brutus, Lucilous tells him he is alive and won't be taken as a prisoner. Antony sends his guards to find Brutus. It is important because they end up winning the battle. Antony says "he was the noblest roman of all".
In my opinion the theme is "power". When Cassius saw that Caesar was gaining absolute power, is when he gathered the conspirators. The conpirators killed to have power. Cassius couldn't even get along with brutus because he was more powerful, and envied him. "cowards die many times before there death" stated calpurnia.
