  • Beware the Ides of March
  • Beware the Ides of March
  • He is but a dreamer
  • Brutus's Soliloquy
  • I gotta kill him for the good of Rome!
  • Caesar's Assassination
  • Et Tu Brute?
  • The Soothsayer warns Caesar of his fate but, because of Caesar's arrogance, the warning goes unheeded. This scene marks the foreshadowing of the fate of not just Caesar, but everyone else affiliated with the conspiracy.
  • Brutus/Antony Speech (Funeral)
  • After struggling with the idea of assassinating Caesar, Brutus's noble nature leads him to believe that eliminating Caesar and his potential tyrannical rule would save the Roman people and the Republic. Brutus's realization of what he must do solidifies his future role in Caesar's fate and the consequences that result. 
  • Caesar's Ghost
  • I will see thou at Phillipi...
  • The assassination of Caesar can very well be argued as the turning point of the tragedy, as conspiracy transitions into reality. Brutus's betrayal of Caesar reinforces Brutus's initial belief of Caesar being a tyrant and leads to a series of events that will determine his own fate as well.
  • Brutus's Death
  • Indeed
  • He really was the only one with a pure heart... an honorable man
  • As the Roman people try to piece together why Caesar was assassinated, Brutus and Antony both give important speeches to convince the crowd of their motives and defend their positions. Brutus's claim of killing the tyrant Caesar for the preservation of liberty in Rome weighed just as heavily with the crowd as Antony's defense of Caesar. After revealing that Caesar had a will that rewarded all Romans, Brutus and his cohorts became enemies of the state and targets by the Roman citizens.
  • As Brutus and Cassius try to organize an effective opposition, Brutus hallucinates while in his tent and sees the ghost of Caesar. This event can be best attributed to the guilt and grief that Brutus himself still felt for killing Caesar, his friend. In addition to this revelation, this encounter foreshadows the fate of Brutus and the effectiveness of his opposition to Antony and Octavius. 
  • After essentially killing himself, Brutus is honored by Antony and Octavius as being the most noble of all Romans. This admission by Antony shows that even though Brutus fought against the potential tyranny of Julius Caesar and the overall opinion of the public, he still showed integrity and nobility to the original cause he dedicated his life to.
