One of the likely reasons Julius Caesar was killed was his obliviousness to stay seated while the Senators went to the sanctuary of Venus Genetrix. Suetonius saw this condition as a reprehensible affront (78). As well as Appian who reports it as "slanderers a reason for indicting him of wishing to be welcomed as a ruler" (107). As a matter of fact Suetonius says that Julius had a negative reaction to Pontinus Aquila when he didn 't ascend for him (78). In some ways Julius is being hypocritical towards Aquila, but Julius doing the exact same insult to the senate.
Brutus’s tragic flaw of being easily swayed made fiendish thoughts over preventing Caesar from being king housed inside of Brutus, thus turning Brutus, a quondam friend into a potential enemy of Caesar. Metaphors were also commonly used in the first act to prove the theme, especially when Marallus and Flavius were trying to disperse the crowd decorating for the return of Caesar as they quite efficiently made the Roman workers back down from celebrating the arrival of Caesar. Marallus, as he conjectures that others have forgotten about the death of Pompey, says “you blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things”, where the commoners are compared to the stones (Marallus I i
in Cassius' monologue he says, "I have moved already/ some certain of the noblest-minded Romans/ To undergo with me on enterprise/ of honable dangerous consequence"(I.iii.122-124). Cassius gathered other senators who also did not like the idea of Caesar as the ruler of Rome to join him in his assassination plan. This is important because Cassius was the first who wanted to get rid of Caesar. Senator Cassius started the conspiracy that killed Julius
After his accusations, Oedipus mocked Teiresias for his blindness, and told him to leave the palace as Oedipus had grown tired of him. Oedipus’s imperfect nature stopped him from learning the truth from Teiresias before it was too late, and lead to great loss at the end of the play. Throughout the story of Oedipus the King, the imperfectly noble nature of Oedipus is displayed for all to learn from. His temperamental and overzealous nature made him argumentative and combative when Teiresias tried to tell him the truth about the murder, causing Oedipus to accuse his good friend Creon of being a usurper.
Is it justified to kill someone because they have gained too much power and are going to use it for the worse? Brutus has a very bad circumstance on his hands, he can kill Caesar and possibly be executed for his actions or he can let Caesar become king and watch Rome fall. There are many reasons why Brutus should and should not join the conspiracy. Brutus says, “I know no personal reason to spurn at him But for the general.” (II,i,11).
He is jealous of Othello, show in, “I confess it is my shame to be so fond/but it is not in my virtue to amend it” (1.3:316-317). Roderigo is desperate for Desdemona and Iago takes advantage of this and makes him do thing such as kill Cassio. Roderigo does all of Iago’s dirty work and makes his plan successful. Also, Roderigo is unintelligent and realizes too late that his “money is almost spent” (2.3:364-368). Iago makes several false promises to Roderigo and he does not expose Iago because he is desperate for love.
In spite of the fact that Iago is the regular disturbance and accordingly the conspicuous awful person, his fate is to make the disaster that this play later moves toward becoming. A protracted thought notwithstanding a receptive outlook will demonstrate the reality of the situation. Othello is the real miscreant. Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy.
I hate the/ word as I hate hell, all Montagues and thee, coward!” (I.i.ll.72-74). Tybalt does not realize that fighting over a simple disagreement is completely unnecessary yet since he is so hot-tempered believes that he is above everyone else. Even Capulet doesn’t fight as much as Tybalt. Later in the play after causing a fight with Romeo, Mercutio steps forward and Tybalt kills him.
Oedipus then is filled with rage after hearing Tiresias accusations that Oedipus is the “plague” and has “poisoned his own land” (717). Oedipus believed that Tiresias is a traitor and is lying about his accusations to harm him. Oedipus then decides to banish Tiresias and continues to seek answers. Oedipus’ freewill is limited because he is misguided by his ambitious character. He is not willing to hear and try to understand Tiresias advice because he wishes to be the savior and hero of his town.
Manipulation in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Manipulation can be defined as a way of tricking someone into believing or doing something another individual wants them to do. Manipulation is often shown throughout The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Shakespeare includes this aspect in order to highlight key events and characters in the play. It can be assumed that without manipulation, Julius Caesar may have not been assassinated on the Ides of March. However, this is not the case.
There are a lot of different themes that could be used to describe the play of Julius Caesar. Power is a big part of the play and is probably the best theme of it. Throughout the play, power has a big impact on the story line and the way the story goes. It is evident to the conspirators that Julius Caesar is headed for absolute power; he becomes a threat to the ideals and values of the Roman Republic. They assassinate Caesar before he can be crowned king.
The Roman Empire was one of the most powerful and successful nations in world history. A large part of the empire’s success was due to their superior military, including their intense training and cunning tactics. The notable wars that will be discussed were turning points in Rome’s history, and helped shaped the empire to become one of the most powerful, and influential, civilizations that have ever been studied. To become a Roman soldier, one first had to reach the necessary level of training. Roman soldiers focused on fitness in order to withstand any physical obstacles in battle.
Although Cassius and Brutus play significant roles in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, both men differ in their rank, views of justice, and possess contrasting personalities. Both men knew Caesar but differed in their motives to kill him. For example, the reader may view Brutus as a hero who desires fair treatment in Rome. Cassius may be looked upon as a manipulative and jealous man seeking to fulfill his own agenda. Despite Brutus’ decision to kill Caesar, it can be argued that he is a man of virtue while Cassius is a man of vice.
Despite the play being named after him, Julius Caesar is not the protagonist or the main concentration of the story, instead focusing on the assassination of Caesar. In doing, so Shakespeare does not allow the audience to verify claims made about Caesar. Instead his arrogance, fragility, and ambition are neither explicitly confirmed or denied. However, actions speak louder than words, and Caesar’s actions only demonstrate how noble he is. One such action takes place early in the story when Caesar refuses the crown not only once, but thrice.
