Caesar, Calpurnia, Antony, and many others attend an ancient Roman festival. Caesar tells Antony to touch Calpurnia during his race due to a belief that women who couldn't give birth were touched by a runner, they could give birth. During the talk a Soothsayer comes to Caesar and tells him to beware the ides of March. "Caesar: Speak; Caesar is turned to hear. Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March." (I; i; 17-18)
Act IV: Sc i
So is my horse.
Lepidus is a tried and valiant soldier.
The conspirators come to Brutus's home to convince him to join them. They discuss what should happen to Caesar and Antony. They also discuss if they should involve Cicero. Whatever they say, the majority agrees with Brutus. "Brutus: Give me your hands all over, one by one. Cassius: And let us swear our resolution. Brutus: No, not an oath..." (II; i; 112-114)
Act V: Sc iii
The conspirators go to Caesar's home to "escort" him to the Capitol. He sees the soothsayer and in a way, taunts him. Artemidorus gives Caesar a letter and tells him to read it instantly, he doesn't. When they kill Caesar, he dies after seeing Brutus stab him. "Caesar: Et tu, Brute? Then fall Caesar. (Dies)" (III; i; 79)
Theme: Act II-III: Sc ii
The senate will make fun of you.
Antony and Octavius discuss who to kill, along with Lepidus, who they decide doesn't deserve any power. While they talk, in a camp near Sardis, Brutus and Cassius argue about each other and what they did. After their argument, they leave each other as friends again and go to their tents. Brutus requests that Lucius plays him a song, after the song, Caesar's ghost appears and says, "Thou shalt see me at Philippi." (IV; iii; 283)
Brutus and Cassius go to war with Antony and Octavius. Brutus gives the word to fight too early and Cassius is surrounded by Antony's army. He sends Titinius down to see if they are friend or foe and sends Pindarus up on hill to watch. Titunius is pulled of his horse and Pindarus believes it was by enemies and Cassius believes him and has Pindarus kill him. "Guide thou the sword-Caesar, thou art revenged." (V; iii; 45)
I believe the theme is do not be gullible or you will be taken advantage of. I believe this because of how badly Caesar was used because of his gullibility. He was also extremely careless, even when the priests had not found a heart in the animal, he still thought it was fine. This gullibility and carelessness was why he would've been such a horrible leader. "Caesar should be a beast without a heart if he should stay at home today for fear." (II; ii; 42-43)
You are right! Get my robe! My wife's fears are foolish.
