Julius Caesar Act 2, Scene 2
Transcript of Julius Caesar Act 2, Scene 2
Caesar returns from war. Cassius and Brutus is suspicious about his return and how powerful he is in the Republic. One night they plan to kill Julius. Caesar is warned by his wife Calphurnia not to go to the senate, but he decides to go anyways. There Brutus stabs him and give him his final blow.
Two tribunes, Flavius and Murellus, find scores of Roman citizens wondering the streets, neglecting their work in order to watch Julius Caesars triumphal parade: Caesar has defeated the sons of the deceased Roman general Pompey, his archival in battle. The tribunes scold the citizens for abandoning their deaths and remove decorations from Caesar's statues. Caesar enters with his entourage, including the military and political figures Brutus, Cassius, and Antony. A soothslayer Calphrunia is out to Caesar to "beware the ides of March" but Caesar ignores him and proceeds with his victory celebrator.
Caesar has been kept awake all night by Calphurnia. She has had a dream and in the dream Caesar dies. She warns Caesar not to leave the house. Caesar replies a man only dies once and he isn't scared of dying. Some of Caesar's servants show up at his house warning him not to leave also. Decius then enters the house telling Caesar that he needs to go to the senate and Caesar replies I will go another day. Decius then says that he is going to get crowned and Caesar changes his mind and demands for his robe for departing.
