Although Caesar’s public side that is consistent and prideful, private Caesar is the real Caesar because it shows his true intentions and how he really feels, not a charade that Caesar plays for the public. An example of this is when Caesar is fearful because it is the Ides of March and the Soothsayer has foretold that something bad will happen to Caesar on this day. Caesar tells the Soothsayer, “The ides of March are come,” to which the Soothsayer responds, “Aye, Caesar, but not gone.” (3.1.1-2). This quote shows that even though Caesar is going to the Capitol, he is very fearful and aware of the bad superstition that has been prophesied on this day, the Ides of March. It also shows that Caesar isn’t as confident on the inside as he looks on the outside.
In the beginning of this play Macbeh states, “If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me, without my stir” (Shakespeare). This bold statement is one in which he should have listened to. In the beginning of this Shakespearean play, Macbeth believes that he should allow chance to take it’s own course, but this philosophy is quickly forgotten.
Though the film is supposed to be taking place in the present-day, the screenwriter, John Logan, decided to use the original text of Shakespeare minimal changes like cutting short most of the scenes and altering the order of the character’s lines and entire scenes. This techniques work for most part of the film but in the first scene, for example the speech of Menenius to the angry people is reduced to merely two lines and through a TV broadcast so the audience cannot realize how gifted he is using words. As previously stated the treatment of this scene helps to make the film more real but in return, the presentation of the Roman nobleman is not as powerful as in the original work. One the other hand, the presentation of Tullus Aufidius is nothing like in the original play, first and foremost because it is a invented scene but also because it shows a crueller and deadly character. His introduction scene has a low key lighting as we see Aufidius and another soldiers waling through a dark corridor towards a cell where they keep a Roman prisoner for interrogation.
William Shakespeare, an English poet, playwright, and actor, wrote in Hamlet “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” In the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Brutus was complex, gullible, and easily influenced. Brutus is not a virtuous character because he does not have high moral standards. Brutus overlooked his opponent, Mark Antony, which led to his own demise. Brutus is the tragic hero in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. Brutus is a complex character, he has strict moral and ethical beliefs.
He had built the tomb at around the time of 1937. It would be over 300 years after Shakespeare had written his play that the tomb was constructed. “It is thanks to Antonio Avena that visitors from everywhere can now find in Verona of the places to see and where to place the tragedy of the heroine immortalized by Shakespeare” If it were not for his love and wanting to prove it, Tomba of di Giulietta would have never been made into a reality. There are people who don't care that the fact, even though the story behind Juliet's tomb is false, means that the tomb is fake. With that, people feel that the tomb is a reality of such of an impacting, and meaningful love making it real.
Upon hearing Julius Caesar’s military achievements and the fate of her further lineage in Augustus, Venus obeys Jupiter’s, her father, commands. Specifically, he commands “hanc animam interea caeso de corpore raptam fac iubar (Ovid, 840)” His command to Venus translates as meanwhile having been seized the soul from the slaughtered corpse, make it a star. Looking down into the senate, she cannot restrain herself to save Caesar from his assassination. However, Jupiter interferes with her dilemma and consoles her to be openminded of the future there is to come after Caesar’s death. As her father and the Superior god, he offers wisdom to his daughter.
Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision since his reasoning to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.
For the beginning, the traits of the characters can impact the myth. For example, Phaethon being a liar impacts the story as the story says,¨But he could not bear to tell Epaphus.¨(on pg. 49). This text evidence shows us why he didn 't want to
Oedipus gets angry because Tiresias wIll not reveal the murderer of Laius. It is very clever to use this scene to show Oedipus’s temper because this side of him has not been shown. If they did not show this scene the audience/reader may not believe Oedipus is capable of the murders at the crossroads. It’s like Tiresias makes Oedipus angry on purpose so the audience/reader figures out the truth without him actually saying it. W. J. Verdenius quotes, “Tiresias is at once a traditionalist and an exceedingly clever man.” Tiresias’ ironic behavior and attitude towards revealing prophecy makes him symbolic to the
Shakespeare’s Othello begins with Iago, who is disgruntled because the rank of lieutenant was given to Michael Cassio rather than to himself, already causing trouble for those in Venice by screaming out claims of Othello’s wrongdoings. The operations of Iago are what carry the plot of Othello forward and are what lead many to the fallacy of Iago being the lead. The actual lead Othello follows the inherent traits of mankind creating decisions based on morality, but Iago is unyielding to moral judgment and intends to complete his agenda no matter the repercussions. Iago wishes to take revenge on Othello and Cassio for stripping him of the position that he believes that he had earned. However, Iago does not desire the revenge he carries out to be swift, but rather in a long meticulous fashion in order to enjoy the suffering of his adversaries to the fullest.
Their destiny was still fulfilled, just not the way it should have been. The Friar caused this tragic end with his advice that did more bad than good. Therefore, Friar Laurence not delivering the letter to Romeo himself impacted the theme because he slightly changed Romeo and Juliet’s
