Discussion Question

Manipulation in Julius Caesar
The ability to alter one's mind upon another occurs everywhere one goes. No matter how hard one tries to avoid being manipulated, it is impossible even to avoid all sources of manipulation. In Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare manipulation has a strong influence on people and leads to death and chaos.

How was Brutus manipulated in a way that we are manipulated today? Are we easily manipulated?

“This dream is all amiss interpreted; it was a vision fair and fortunate. Your statue spouting blood in many pipes, in which so many smiling Romans bathed, signified that from you great Rome shall suck reviving blood, and that great men shall press for tinctures, stains, relics, and cognizance. This by Calpurnia's dream is signified” (2.2.83-90).
