Storyboard Text

  • Rome's flaw was giving power to Cassius who acts out of self interest. 
  • Cassius manipulates Brutus into thinking Caesar is not worthy to be king. Cassius says "Brutus and Caesar" what should be in that "Caesar"? (Julius Caesar, 1.2.147-148). He does this because he is jealous of Caesars power.
  • "I was born free as Caesar. So were you" (1.2.98-99).
  • "You lay it in the praetor's chair, where Brutus may find it" (1.3.145-147)
  • To further his plan, Cassius gets Casca to lay fake letters in Brutus room supposedly from commoners that are praising Brutus saying how he should be king. 
  • "We Shall find of him. A shrewd contriver; and, you know, his means, If he improve them, may well stretch so far, As to annoy us all; which to prevent, Let Antony and Caesar fall together" (2.1.168-174).
  • By Cassius suggesting that they also murder Antony, Cassius removes the veil of honor from the plan. This isn't simply about protecting Rome from tyranny; its making practical moves to protect them from further "annoyances" in whatever it is they plan after the murder.
  • In this scene, Brutus had just stabbed Caesar in the back due to Cassius's manipulation.
  • Cassius charges Brutus with having condemned one of their men for taking bribes, even though Cassius took bribes as well. He made Brutus look like a fool to cover up the fact he was too.
  • "You wrong me every way. You wrong me Brutus." (4.3.58-59).
