    In the course of teaching high school sophos for thirty years I have read Julius Caesar than thirty times and I never grow tired of its richness of detail or the complexity of its characters Almost every year I end up asking myself the same simple question Whom do I like better? Cassius or Brutus? and almost every year my answer is different from what it was the year before On one hand we have Cassius the selfish manipulative conspirator who after the assassination shows himself to be an impulsive loyal friend and an able politician and on the other hand Brutus the conscientious intellectual and lover of the republic who becomes under the weight of his guilt an irritatingly scrupulous moralist and an inept general concerned with reputation than success And then of course there is Antony brilliant vicious unscrupulous and ultimately as unknowable as a tornado This is a great play about politics and human character

    “Cowards die many times before their deaths The valiant never taste of death but once Of all the wonders that I yet have heard It seems to me most strange that men should fear Seeing that death a necessary end Will come when it will come” Beware the Ides of March Beware to those that have aspirations to rule You may encounter many enemies People who will thwart your plans People quite possibly afraid of your genius People suffering from delusions of grandeur I always say keep an eye on the son of your favorite squeeze Marcus Junius Brutus what a fickle man you are running around like a plucked chicken looking for your missing head ”He seems completely blind to reality an ineffectual idealist whose idealism cannot prevent him from committing a senseless and terrible crime” You let the insidious Cassius fill your ear with dilettante conspiratorial nonsense ”Cadaverous and hungry looking much given to brooding and a great reader a scorner of sports and light diversions a very shrewd judge of human nature and deeply envious of those who are greater than himself” So the question remains is Cassius the shrewd judge of character capable of seeing the future or is he the man consumed by jealousy who wants to see the mighty Julius Caesar fall? You fell for that first man of Rome the republic is your responsibility and all that As it turns out you aren’t the only dagger maestro in your family Gaius Servilius Structus Ahala a distant relative of yours saved Rome from another tyrant named Spurius Maelius Of course that is all in the far distant past and might even be a myth but Cassius knows the right buttons to push ”And therefore think him as a serpent’s eggWhich hatch’d would as his kind grow mischievousAnd kill him in the shell” You might have said the line Brutus but the stench of it the green gray smoke of it smacks of Cassius Wouldn’t it have been prudent to see what Caesar intended to do with his power before you stab stab STABBED him to death?“Et tu Brute?”That must have felt like a punch in the gut given that you had his blood all over your sword and hands at the time Caesar’s parting guilt laden gift to you I’m just putting a few thoughts out there in the wind How’d you feel about Caesar putting the sausage to your mother? Did the bedposts banging against the wall feel like a drummer hammering your skull? Maybe Cassius doesn’t have to be that convincing CassiusIt must have been a real kick in the subligaculum when that hack William Shakespeare named the play after Julius Caesar My god man you have four times the lines and for most of the play Caesar is nothing than an apparition An annoying apparition by the way who keeps showing up at the most inconvenient times and saying things like ”Let loose the dogs of war”Letting Marc Antony live was probably a mistake He isn’t the brightest star in the firmament but he is a brave soldier A good leader but better as number two than number one You aren’t really a mad dog killer after all so the thought of killing Antony is like crunching on the bones of a stale dormouse ”Of course will seem too bloody Caius CassiusTo cut the head off and then hack the limbsLike wrath in death and envy afterwardsFor Antony is but a limb of CaesarLet’s be sacrificers but not butchers CaiusWe all stand up against the spirit of Caesar” Magnanimous of you Brutus Well said but did you think ZOINKS after Antony dropped that rap battle speech at Caesar’s funeral Marc Antony ”Friends Romans countrymen lend me your earsI come to bury Caesar not to praise himThe evil that men do lives after themThe good is oft interred with their bonesSo let it be with Caesar The noble BrutusHath told you Caesar was ambitiousIf it were so it was a grievous faultAnd grievously hath Caesar answer’d itHere under leave of Brutus and the rest–For Brutus is an honourable manSo are they all all honourable men– You remember the one right? The speech where he basically calls you a douche bag under the guise of singing your praises I’m not going to talk about the disaster at the battle of Philippi I think that might have been where the term Caesar salad came into common usage Marc Antony and Octavius join forces and break the will of your men We are all ready way past ready for you to fall on your own sword In fact I would have happily given you a firm Caligae to the arse if you needed a little extra encouragement If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

    The most powerful famous man in Roman history her greatest conqueror loved by the adoring poor population of Rome and Cleopatra also that has brought glory and prosperity too the army will follow anywhere he leads certain victory and riches to the soldiers the Senate has given numerous awards to him Rome's enemies tremble at the name of the mighty Caesar but of course nobody is loved by all men are small petty and jealous why should he be above them fearing he becoming King the less talented and not as successful always will ask this eternal questionThe world is full of chaos by men who believe in a cause they never see the consequences of their actions what happens afterwards most don't care A conspiracy by a conservative faction of the Roman Senate organized by Marcus Brutus and Gaius Cassius an upper class clique the aristocrats didn't like Caesar's rule but pretended to be his friends had contempt for the plebeians common citizens and on the Ides 15th of March 44 BC stabbed the great brilliant warrior 23 times Et tu Brutus? Those Senators were out of touch with reality believing they would be praised for their treachery yet when Mark Anthony gives a fiery speech to the dazed vast crowds asking them when will there be another man like him never they shout back at Caesar's funeral but Brutus said he was ambitious and shows the bloody body clothes of the fallen and reads his will giving every poor citizen who he loved a vast amount of money and a park his own gardens to the lowly riots ensue the surprised assassins flee for their lives out of the huge cityAt the decisive battle of Philippi in Greece Mark Anthony and young Octavian Augustus Caesar Julius Caesar's great nephew fought Brutus and Cassius a total of 400000 soldiers for the control of Rome the winners live the losers diebut none were generals like Caesar A great immortal play that asks who is right and who is wrong Brutus and Cassius or Caesar generations past and in the unforeseen future will deliberate this unanswerable question politics can be deadly when one group believes they know best anyone opposing them will be butchered for the good of the state these pitiable people cease to be human the killers destroy but the blood sprays on all as later the victims friends fight back vengeance is very sweet thousands even millions may perish but the gore continues unrelenting until the people have had enough or no one is left it may go on for a long long while though There are no noblemen in hate

    💜reread for my Shakespeare classI really do love this play but I was also in it with an Overly Large Yet Worth It Role and at this point I have no energy to have thoughts on it we'll talk about why I love this show and then we'll end with the long list of terrible memes also why the FUCK did I give this four stars it's a five goodnight I love this underrated playWHY THIS PLAY IS FUCKING AWESOMEOkay first of all and no one else cares it's pretty damn historically accurate as Shakespeare goes And I'm a stressed Latin student So that was nice to see It's also a really good play as characters go Every character parallels around three other characters in interesting ways Brutus especially is a foil to all of the other three leads All the relationships between the characters are so interesting and heartbreaking This is also just one of the best written plays I've ever read I love how Shakespeare varies his meter for every character Okay example time Brutus ends at least half his statements with weak endings rather than in typical Iambic Pentameter Cool right? Maybe it's not if you don't know what any of that meant Nevermind But my nerd ass loves it Also so much rhetoric That assembly scene changed me as a person You could write a freaking term paper on that scene and still not fully analyze the whole thingAnd it's still a relevant story today This play has some really fucking relevant political commentary There's actually a line in this play about how this bloody scene this surprise betrayal will be reenacted a thousand times over in the future and it's maybe the most brilliant line of all time ever I love it I can't believe we cut it Beyond all that though this is just one of the most narratively strong plays I've ever read This is my favorite kind of tragedy Every single character has sensical motivations There's no villain There's no fate as the villain Every bad thing that happens is the result of a character decision I just really love this play narratively SOME MEMES FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT— I can't believe Brutus and Cassius are being chewed on by Satan in hell they didn't deserve this Dante you take that shit back they were just trying to stop a fucking dictator good god— comparing Caesar to Trump is unfair?? Caesar cared about poor people how is that comparable to our current president— please just look at this— add “bro” to every single line of The Tent SceneTM and it's 100% better trust me I Am A Scientist— et tu brote— some people?? stab emperors?? to coup??— Cassius every single time something goes wrong time to die lmao— au where this whole thing takes place on tumblr and Antony's speech is just a callout post and no one stays in their lane — that Mean Girls version of the speech is really fucking accurate she even gets in Brutus is just as cute as Caeser and if that's not something Cassius would say I don't know what is— sorry Shakespeare I really do love your work I don't only make memes about it— and yet holy fucki'm really sorry— this play is literally Macbeth except less supernatural Roman and gay — there's also this weird Romeo and Juliet esque triple suicide? in which a character who has never shown up before is suddenly Cassius' best friend and then they kill themselves and lie dead next to each other over a misunderstanding? it's weird— and then Brutus comes in and dies too so triple suicide? cool??— I feel like I should mention that random new character is quite literally named Titty nius— Shakespeare on his 1610 ao3 account lmao let's write a crossover of Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth except Roman au — this play invented the bury your gays trope— or maybe someone just yelled the floor is stabbing Caesar— I'm so very sorry for this review I regret it alreadyBlog | Goodreads| Twitter | Youtube

    Book Review In 1599 William Shakespeare published his famous tragic play Julius Caesar In this tragedy he explores the effect of power and trust across many characters those who have it and those who are hungry for it Several memorable lines originate in this play offering guidance on how to go about building a network of friends and an army of enemies Most readers are familiar with the story of vengeance and betrayal when it comes to Julius Caeser and this is the central theme in Shakespeare's play How do you know when you can truly trust someone? What happens when hearsay changes someone's mind? Who do you turn to when you've been betrayed by someone you thought was trustworthy These are persistent motifs across literature for hundreds of years As one of the original literary works focusing on it this classic has set a high standard for using one's words versus using your physical prowess to convince someone to do something they might not normally consider doing There are a lot of strong images and passages to re read in this play each giving you different slices of life and hearty challenges to dissect Of all Shakespeare's plays I'd put this one towards the top of most analyzed It's worth a read and teaches you a bit about history too About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by

    “Et tu Brute?”These lines have haunted audiences and readers for centuries since The Bard first presented the play believed to be in 1599 when Shakespeare would have been 35 Bringing to life scenes from Roman history this tragedy than presenting a biography of the leader instead forms a study in loyalty honor patriotism and friendship“Friends Romans countrymen lend me your ears I come to bury Caesar not to praise him The evil that men do lives after them The good is oft interred with their bones So let it be with Caesar ”Antony’s speech has been memorized and recited by hundreds of thousands over the centuries and still stands as a testament to subtle revenge and stubborn leadership“Be patient till the last Romans countrymen and lovers Hear me for my cause and be silent that you may hear Believe me for mine honor and have respect to mine honor that you may believe Censure me in your wisdom and awake your senses that you may the better judge If there be any in this assembly any dear friend of Caesar’s to him I say that Brutus' love to Caesar was no less than his If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar this is my answer not that I loved Caesar less but that I loved Rome ”Like Milton’s Satan and Shakespeare’s Edmund from King Lear the most interesting character in the play is the villain Brutus But was he truly a villain? He was certainly written as a sympathetic antagonist His conflicting thoughts on loyalty and honor form the most memorable elements of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays
