Transcript of Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar Julius Ceasar was an arrogant but powerful leader who was loving to his peeople as well. Brutus was Julius' "best friend" who basically
stabbed Julius in the back...literally. Cassius was the leader of the group
of people who hated Ceasar. He hated
the fact that Ceasar was treated like
a God. Mark Antony was a good friend of Ceasar's and
puts himself in a position of going against Brutus and Cassius. Calphurnia was Julius Ceasar's wife who
predicted Ceasars death. Pun- A play on words. "A trade, sir, that, I hope, I may use with a
safe conscience, which is, indeed, sir, a
mender of bad soles." -Second Commoner Metaphor- A comparison of two things
without using the words "like" or "as". ""These growing feathers pluk'd from Ceasar's wing will make him fly an ordinary pitch." -Flavius Foreshadowing- when the characters
in the story/play give hints of what
may be coming. "Beware the ides of March." -Soothsayer Symbolism- when something means something else (a symbolic meaning). Thunder and lightening when Ceasar was in his room (before the ides of March). Euphemism- saying something mean in
a nice way. "When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept:
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious." -Antony Bandwagon- doing something because everyone else is doing it. The people of Rome during Antony and Brutus' speech were going back and forth on who's side they were on. Propaganda Used... Testimonial- when a famous person
endourses a product or persuades the people. "Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious." -Antony Summary of Play On the way to the Arena (Theatre of Pompey), Caesar is warned about the Ides of March by the Soothsayer. On the way to Arena, while being celebrated by his return, is warned about the Ides of March by the soothsayer. Cassius and Brutus become suspicious about how powerful Caesar is and they dont want him to become Emperor. Cassius, Brutus, and their allies plan Caesars death.
On the Ides of March (15), Caesars wife, Calphurnia didn't want Caesar to go to the Arena because she had a bad dream. Caesar is persuaded to go and is stabbed by petitioners and lastly, Brutus. Mark Antony is then aloud to speak at Caesars funeral and "stirs" the people up by going against what Brutus and Cassius said.
The people of Rome then turn against Cassius, Brutus, and the other petitioners and they flee from the city. Mark Antony joins with Octavius and Lepidus and go against Brutus and his group. Cassius kills himself, then Brutus hears about his wife's suicide and sees Caesars ghost and does the same. Theme Analysis Figurative Language
Brutus, Cassius, and their allies acted like they
were friends with Caesar but they ended up killing them. People aren't who they seem to be: Gender: The men didn't listen or think the women could do things men did in the play. Julius and Brutus both wouldn't listen to their wives. Gender shouldn't matter. Exposition Plot Diagram Caesar arrives back in Rome and is on his way to the arena. He is greeted by his people but is also warned about the Ides of March (15) by a stranger (Soothsayer). Rising Action Cassius, Brutus, and their allies don't like how powerful Caesar is becoming. Caesar's wife Calphurnia has a dream that Caesar gets murdered and warns him not to go. Cassius, Brutus, and the others meet and plan Caesars death. Caesar is persuaded to go to the arena. Climax During the meeting, Cassius and the petitioners begin to stab Caesar. Brutus gets the "final blow" and Caesar's last words were "Et tu Brute". He was shocked his friend would stab him in the back...literally. Falling Action Mark Antony is given permission to speak at Caesars funeral even though Cassius doesn't approve. Brutus speaks and then Antony speaks but he tries to tell the people Brutus, Cassius, and the others killed him intentionally by being very sarcastic during the speech about Caesar's ambition. The people of Rome then turn against Cassius, Brutus, and the others, so they flee the city. Antony then gets together with Octavius and Lepidus to fight with Brutus, Cassius, and the others. Resolution During the fight, Cassius kills himself. Brutus begins to see Caesars ghost as well as receiving the news that his wife poisons herself. Brutus also kills himself as well, right before Antony and the others find him. Poem Analysis The blood was shed
It will never be the same
Feel the intruding lead
That hangs my head in pain

The drainage not on my hands
But flows down my back
It was only in the sands
Where you planned your attack

Executed without flaws
With no issue at hand
You dug deep with your claws
Into a faceless land

Your face full of lies
When you greet me at that place
I see through your disguise
And reject your embrace

The wound you try to heal
Is now a gaping maw
Your words can never conceal
The true colors I saw This poem related to Julius Caesar
because it's about being stabbed in
the back by your best friend, and
Julius Caesar was definitely stabbed
in the back by his. This play can relate the the world and my life in many ways. In the world, there are many people being killed or just put down because they have power. Sometimes because of jealousy; just like in Julius Caesar. Also, it could relate to my life if by best friend stabbed me in the back, not literally but possibly becoming against me for no reason when I was thinking he/she was my best friend. Mark Antony's speech during Caesar's funeral was definitely the most important speech in the play. This speech was very important to the whole play and to listen to because it showed Antony's true colors as well as it pointed out "true drama". It did this when he pointed out Caesars wounds as well as become sarcastic when trying to give a true message to the people of Rome. This speech in important to listen to because the whole play goes all the way back to little parts of the speech every once in a while. The song "Hail Caesar" related to the play because
on certain lines it talks about Caesar being back stabbed. The song relates in general because of the title and it goes back to the play during most of the song. History of Rome Rome, during Caesars life was very dangerous. Rome could not handle all of the power they had. They were in "chaos" and Caesar gave them hope when he took power. Julius Ceasar had many powerful and famous people in his family.
