  • The conspirators go through with their plan of killing Caesar. Caesar was upset about this. He was most upset by Brutus being there. Brutus was his good friend.
  • Theme
  • "So call the field to rest, and let's away" (V.v.81)
  • After Caesar's death, his friends Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus plan to avenge his death. They are going to kill everyone that helped in Caesar's murder. Cassius and Brutus hear this and go into hiding. They decide to build their own army and fight back.
  • Both sides go to war. Many people die including Cassius. Finally Brutus knows he cannot win so he asks Strato to kill him. Strato obeys.
  • I think the theme of Julius Caesar is to not be ambitious and trust everyone you meet. Caesar trusted too much and that got him murdered. He thought too much of himself. If he would've noted his surroundings he might have lived.
