Julius Caesar
Characters and description
Portia: She was Brutus' wife as well as the daughter of
Cato. She is a strange woman in that she stabbed herself in the thigh just to prove here devotion to Brutus. She also kills herself towards the end of the story by swallowing burning coals, which affects Brutus (although to what extent we are not sure)
Brutus: He was a confidant man. The people of Rome were fond of him. Also, he envisions a lot; when making decisions he envisions the outcome in his head. He only sees the best in people, which does not end well for him. He is one of the major conspirators, and although he thinks himself to be the leader of the conspirators, in actuality, it is Cassius.
Antony: He is great friends with Caesar, and is his "right hand man". His greatest quality is his ability to persuade people. (speech) The speech he gives at Caesar's funeral turns the Roman citizens against the conspirators, and gives him the ability and support to become a ruler of Rome. Antony, along with Octavius wage a battle against the armies of both Brutus and Cassius, which he wins.
Octavius: He was the young successor of Caesar. He was also the adopted son of Caesar and worked/ruled with Antony at the end of the story. He does not appear to be a very smart or free-thinking person. He listens to Antony, and lets Antony do whatever he wants.
Caesar: He was an ambitious man as well as an absolute ruler. He led a strong army that conquers Pompey at the beginning of the story. He is killed by the conspirators at what is the climax. His ghost comes back to haunt Brutus before the battle
Calphurnia: She is Caesar's wife, and suffers from infertility. Calphurnia was a superstitious woman, and told Caesar not to go to the senate on the ides of march because she had a bad dream the night before and had heard of bad omens. Caesar however, ignores her warning (with the prompting of Decius) and goes to the senate regardless.
Artemidorus: He writes a letter warning Caesar of the plot to kill him, but is unable to deliver it. He attempts to give Caesar the letter on his way to the senate, but Caesar's turns him away and tells him to give it to him at the senate. (thinking it was a petition)
Soothsayer: Publicly warns Caesar about the ides of march (march 15th), but Caesar ignores him.
Conspirators
Cassius: Cassius is the leader of the conspirators, and th e mastermind behind it all. He is the one who convinces Brutus to join the conspiracy
Casca: Casca is the first to stab Caesar. Also, the last words before Caesar was stabbed were those of Casca "Speak, hands, for me"
Cinna: He delivers the letters written by Cassius to Brutus. These letters are what convince Brutus of the fact that Caesar must be killed.
Decius: Decius is the conspirator that convinced Caesar to go to the senate on the fifteenth of march, despite the warnings from both the soothsayer and his (Caesar's) wife, Calphurnia
Trebonius: He was the only conspirator not to stab Caesar. He also distracts Mark Antony while the conspirators kill Caesar.
Climax
Caesar's Death : Julius Caesar dies at the hands of the conspirators.
Setting
The Marketplace: The marketplace is a significant setting because it is where Brutus, and more importantly Antony's speeches occur. Antony's speech is a major turning point because after the speech, the Romans who just respected Brutus, now want to kill him, and the rest of the conspirators. (It is also the background for this prezi)
Resolution
The resolution in Julius Caesar is that Antony and Octavius are left to lead Rome.The reader is left with hope that the new leaders will learn from their experiences and Rome will be stronger because of it. Brutus, Cassius, Caesar, and the other conspirators are left dead.
Crucial Main Events
1. Soothsayer warns Caesar of the ides of march
2. Brutus joins the conspiracy
3.Caesar denies the crown three times
4. Antony gives a speech at Caesar's funeral that turns the Romans against the conspirators.
5. There is a battle between Brutus & Cassius' armies, and The armies of Antony & Octavius.
by: Nathan Schrope & Karley Mills
Theme
Speeches
Antony's speech is more dramatic then Brutus since Antony brings the body of Caesar. He also appeals to the logos, pathos, and ethos of emotions. The logos (facts) was that Caesar denied the crown three times. An example of pathos (emotions) is that he cried when the people cried. Antony used ethos (character) in his speech when he convinced the people in an inconspicuous way that Caesar was not an ambitious man, and consequently the conspirators who killed him (Caesar) were villains, not hero's and that they should be killed.



Greed:
many of the characters desire power, and are unwilling to share it, most especially Caesar.


Climax
Rising Action
Falling Action
Exposition (Introduction)
Denouement (Resolution)
When we first are introduced to Julius Caesar he is conversing with Antony and his wife, Calphurnia. He (Caesar) tells Antony to touch Calphurnia as he runs by to cure her of her infertility.

The rising action is when Cassius begins to reveal his plan, and the conspirators come together to plot out a way to kill Caesar.
The Climax of the play is the death of Julius Caesar at the hands of the conspirators.
The falling action is what occurs after the death of Caesar. It includes the speeches by Brutus and Antony. It also includes the battle between Brutus & Cassius' army, and the army of Antony and Octavius
The resolution is when Octavius and Antony are left to lead Rome with the hope that they have learned from their experiences.
Characters Part III
Octavius: He was the young successor of Caesar. He was also the adopted son of Caesar and worked/ruled with Antony at the end of the story.
Caesar: He was an ambitious man as well as an absolute ruler. He led a strong army that conquers Pompey at the beginning of the story. He is killed by the conspirators at what is the climax.
Calphurnia: She is Caesar's wife. Calphurnia was a superstitious woman, and told Caesar not to go to the senate on the ides of march because she had a bad dream the night before and had heard of bad omens. She also suffers from infertility
Artemidorus: He writes a letter warning Caesar of the plot to kill him, but is unable to deliver it.
Soothsayer: Publicly warns Caesar about the ides of march (march 15th),but caesar ignores him.
Biblical Integration
Caesar was very ambitious, he wanted to conquer lands and be the absolute ruler of Rome. God does not want us to place all our value and spend all our time chasing the things of this world, namely power and belongings. In Luke 9:25 it says, "For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses or forfeits his soul?"
Characters Part II
Octavius: He was the young successor of Caesar. He was also the adopted son of Caesar and worked/ruled with Antony at the end of the story. He does not appear to be a very smart or free-thinking person. He listens to Antony, and lets Antony do whatever he wants.
Caesar: He was an ambitious man as well as an absolute ruler. He led a strong army that conquers Pompey at the beginning of the story. He is killed by the conspirators at what is the climax.
Calphurnia: She is Caesar's wife, and suffers from infertility. Calphurnia was a superstitious woman, and told Caesar not to go to the senate on the ides of march because she had a bad dream the night before and had heard of bad omens. Caesar however, ignores her warning (with the prompting of Decius) and goes to the senate regardless.
Artemidorus: He writes a letter warning Caesar of the plot to kill him, but is unable to deliver it. He attempts to give Caesar the letter on his way to the senate, but Caesar's turns him away and tells him to give it to him at the senate. (thinking it was a petition)
Soothsayer: Publicly warns Caesar about the ides of march (march 15th).
Allegiance

and rivalry:
Brutus struggles during the story on whether or not he should kill his friend Caesar. He loves Caesar dearly but he is even more devoted to his country (Rome). Eventually with the help of Cassius, Brutus is convinced that killing Caesar is for the best of Rome, therefore he goes ahead with the conspirators in their plot to kill Caesar.
