  • Act II: Sc I
  • Act III: Sc I
  • "Et tu, Brute? Then fall, Caesar!"
  • In Act I, Scene I, We find Marullus walking around the streets of Rome, wondering why the people aren't working. The townspeople are rejoicing over the victory of Julius Caesar. "We make holiday to see Caesar and to rejoice his in his triumph." Act I, Scene I, Line 32-33. Marullus doesn't see any reason to celebrate. He believes Caesar has done nothing of value to Rome. Marullus starts to take down decorations from Caesar's statues, and is then to be bannished, or executed by Ceasar. This scene tells us of Caesar's intents of how he will rule Rome.
  • Act IV: Sc III
  • To tell thee thou shall see me at Philipi
  • In Act II, Scene I, Cassius formed a group of conspirators. They have started to plot against Caesar. " They are the faction. O Conspiracy." Act II, Scene I, line 77. Cassius believes Brutus will be of great help to them in taking out Caesar. Brutus reluctlantly agrees to join the conspirators. It is at this moment that the shift in power goes to Brutus from Cassius, the conspirators leave for the night. after discussing plans for the next day. This scene lets us know that Caesar's end is drawing near.
  • Act V: Sc V
  • Farewell, good Strato-Caesar, now be still: I killed not the with half so good will.
  • In Act III, Scene I, The conspirators have successfully taken down Caesar. Although he was slain, it was not that which saddened him, but that Brutus was the one who he'd been slain by. Caesar is heart broken by this, and dies, seeing this, Mark Antony comes up with a plan to avenge his friend. Brutus let's him speak at Caesar's funeral, given this opportunity, Antony is able to turn the people against the conspirators. This scene shows us how impactful Caesar's death will be towards everyone.
  • Theme: Act II :Sc I
  • And therefore think him as a serpent's egg which hatched, would as his kind grow mischievous, and kill him in his shell
  • In Act IV, Scene III, long after Brutus and Cassius had fled Rome, they needed to build an army. As generals, Brutus and Cassius would decide where their battle against Antony would take place. One night, while Brutus was reading, the ghost of Caesar came to him, and told him where they would meet again. This tells us that Brutus would end up dying during the battle in Philipi.
  • In Act V, Scene V, Brutus had put up a full hearted struggle against Antony, but stood no chance in the end. Brutus believed he had fufilled his porpose to serve Rome. He died being satisfied, while also giving credit to Caesar. Julius may have lost the battle, but he won the war. This final scene shows that, while Brutus had good intentions, he was still in the wrong by killing Caesar, and had to pay the price, granting Caesar his revenge.
  • In Act II, Scene I, Brutus describes why he sees Caesar as troublesome. He descirbes him as ambitious, willing to do what it takes to gain a lot of power. Brutus fears once he does, Rome will have an overbearing king, not a repbulic. These assumptions lead to him killikg Caesar with the intention of doing good for Rome. He then had to pay the price for his assumptions, the lesson, while very cliche, is to not judge a book by its cover, since we never got to see what Caesar would've done with that power.
