Mark Antony was a Roman general who served in the Gallic wars with Caesar and would go on to serve with Caesar again in the Civil War that took place in Rome before Caesar took over Rome. After Caesar’s death Antony saw him self as the true heir to his legacy and worked hard to make sure he stayed in power. Even though Caesar’s will gave the majority of his wealth to his grandnephew Octavian, Antony took a portion of it for him self along with claiming himself as the Caesarian faction leader. This created a rift in their relationship that would eventually boil over to war after Philippi. Antony led several legions at Philippi and his victory there helped him retain his power in the eastern Roman provinces after the battle.
Instead of putting forth what it took to become the “bright” student, they chose to be sorry for themselves and make it easier. While Beatty spends his life eliminating books and “differences,” Blow is promoting books and explaining the wonderful effects they can have on one’s life. He says, “That was the beginning of a lifelong journey in which books would shape and change me, making me who I was.” So, Beatty’s and Blow’s views on reading and writing had a small similarity. Blow explains that books shaped him into the person that he was. Beatty also claims books can create differences throughout society, and they can cause people to be shaped different.
Why did Caesar attack the Gauls? It wasn’t until the spring of 58 BC, that Julius Caesar took over his duty as governor of Cisalpine and Gaul. During his tenure as governor, Caesar became aware of a chieftain leader by the name of Ariovistus. Ariovistus, was a leader of the Germanic people who yearned to make himself king and ruler over all of Gaul. Caesar suspected the possibility of an attack by the Gauls, and how an attack might pose a serious threat to Roman security.
Montag’s search for answers end up leading him to read books. Evidence that Clarisse inspires Montag to read is seen in the quote, “These men have been dead a long time but I know some way or the other their words point to Clarisse.” (68) This quote proves even though Clarisse disappears her knowledge is so important to Montag He attempts to search for it in books. In this sense, Clarisse is the reason Montag reads, without her Montag may never been inspired to read. Lastly, Montag confirms Clarisse as a role model in the quote, “He was surprised to learn how certain he suddenly was on a single fact he could not prove… Clarisse had walked here, where he was walking now.” (138). This quote symbolically shows how Montag has seen Clarisse as a role model.
In today’s society, we hopefully think that is not ok. It wasn’t until Clarrise met Montag when he realized he wasn’t happy. As soon as he came to terms with that, he tried doing things to change that. This book is about Montag and his adventure to try and change his life and society. In the first part of the book, Montag thought he was the happiest he could be.

The author uses these many facts to support their claim so as to create a scholarly and accurate argument. The History Staff explains Julius Caesar’s life before his many achievements and the beginning of the First Triumvirate. Julius Caesar was born into a patrician, noble family “and was the nephew of another famous Roman general, Marius” (History.com Staff). After his Uncle Marius died, his life was in danger. To resolve his problem, he began his political and military career by working with Pompey the Great and Crassus.
My friend Brutus, We have known each other for many years, and as your friend, I feel as though I have a duty to Rome to contact you about the issue at hand. We should not kill Caesar. Caesar has made many mistakes by making his law then decided to break it, gave Gaul's places in the senate-house, and even went against the state by marching on Rome. Though Cassius has convinced you to kill Caesar, I plead with you to reconsider. Killing Caesar is not what the people want, but is what the conspirators are tricking you into thinking.
The manner of how you look to something will determine its meaning and importance. Books are as such, because based on the manner you chose to analyze, it may become noticeable indirect thoughts hidden within the text. In Fahrenheit 451, written by Ray Bradbury, for example, these deeper and sometimes hidden connotations are evident in different passages throughout the story. One event that can be remarked by such analyzation is from page 58 to 61, when Beatty, an important character shares his point of view of life through an extensive and convincing speech to Montag, the protagonist. If looking meticulously through different perspectives and through critical lenses such as psychoanalysis and new criticism, it becomes evident the importance

Unfortunately, Plinia’s husband died soon after the birth. Pliny adopted the boy and renamed the boy after himself, known as Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus; we regard him as Pliny the Younger (Lendering). Pliny the Younger would be raised and educated in Pliny’s Roman home. Much of what we know of Pliny the Elder comes from the writing of Pliny the Younger. Soon after the birth of Pliny the Younger a civil war broke-out and the Romans had to fight for their empire and side civil wars were still happening.
