This is my Story Board for "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar"....... ENJOY
Act I: Sc ii
Beware the Ides of March...
Act II: Sc i
Be a part of our conspiracy.
Join us!! join us!!!!
Act III: Sc i
In Act 1 Scene 2, a soothsayer comes up to Caesar and tells him to 'beware the Ides of March'. He is telling him this because he knows something bad will happen to Caesar on that day. Caesar doesn't acknowledge him and kind of brushes it off... " He is a dreamer, let us leave him. Pass" (I :ii: ln 24) Caesar believes that he cannot be hurt and that nothing but good things will happen to him. Caesar then walks away with Marc Antony as if nothing happened.
Act IV: Sc iii
In Act 2, Scene 1, all of the conspirators go to Brutus' house to try to get him to join them in their plans... "Let 'em enter./ They are the faction. O conspiracy" (II :i: ln 77-78) The conspirators are trying to convince Brutus to help them kill Caesar so he couldn't become king of Rome. Brutus was a little hesitant at first but eventually agreed and began to plan the whole thing out.
Act V: Scene
Such a noble man
In Act 3, Scene 1, Caesar goes into the senate house, even after Calpurnia begs him to stay home for the day. Shortly after he begins addressing problems, the conspirators step up and gang up on him. Caesar is just as hurt has he is confused as to why they would want to kill him, especially Brutus, his best friend, "Et tu Brute? Then fall, Caesar/ [dies] " (III :i: ln 79) Seeing Brutus stab him broke Caesar's heart.
Caesar's ghost pays a visit to Brutus while he's in his tent. Caesar tells Brutus... "Thou shalt see me at Philippi" (IV: iii: ln 283). Caesar was basically telling Brutus that he is going to die in Philippi but Brutus ignored it. Later that night, he asks Lucius if he saw the ghost, but he didn't.
See you tomorrow buddy! Thx for killing me :)
Brutus kills himself because he knows he is going to lose in his battle. He decided to have one of his slaves to help him in his suicide. "Hold thou my sword-hilts whilst I run on it." (V:v:ln 28) Brutus believes his only choice now is to kill himself for the well-being of Rome. Antony then states that Brutus is the noblest man of Rome.
I think the theme is that nobody is better than anyone else. Caesar was killed because everyone thought that Caesar was ambitious and full of himself. " scene from story,,,ambition.." (Act, Scene, Lines) Caesar thought very highly of himself. They killed him because they didn't want him to be the ruler of Rome.
