Be careful on March 15.



Caesar might want to

mark this date on

his calendar.



2. 2-86
“Set honor in one eye and death i’ the other,

And I will look on both indifferently;

For let the gods so speed me as I love

The name of honor more than I fear death.”









He means this.

Act II










1. 1-32

“And therefore think him as a serpent’s

egg,

Which, hatched, would as his kind grow



mischievous,

And kill him in the shell.”






Animal imagery



Nice analogy.

Giving myself a voluntary wound

Here, in the thigh.”

Act III










1. 1-58

“I could be well moved if I were as you;

If I could pray to move, prayers would

move me;


But I am constant as the Northern Star,

Of whose true-fixed and resting quality

There is no fellow in the firmament.”








If his mind can’t be

changed, why did he flip-flop on his ecision to go to the Capitol?

What is a “firmament”?


2. 1-77

Et tu Brute? Then fall, Caesar!”














3. 1-105

“Stoop, Romans, stoop,

And let us bathe our hands in Caesar’s

blood


Up to the elbows and besmear our

swords.”











4. 1-158

“I do beseech ye, if you hear me hard,

Now, whilst your purpled hands do reek

and smoke,

Fulfill your pleasure.”











5. 1-255

“O, pardon me thou bleeding piece of

earth,

That I am meek and gentle with these



butchers!

Thou are the ruins of the noblest man

That ever lived in the tide of times.”


Anthony’s soliloquy.

This is also an apostrophe. Keep a lookout for several more.



Metaphors.

Note his tone.

6. 2-73

“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.”









“What is “interred”?

ACT IV










1. 3-197

“Tis better that the enemy seek us.

So shall he waste his means, weary his

soldiers,

Doing himself offense, whilst we, lying

still,


Are full of rest, defense, and nimbleness.”

2. 1-112

“But this same day

Must end the work the ides of March

begun,


And whether we shall meet again I know

not.


Therefore our everlasting farewell take.

………………………………………….

If we do meet again, why, we shall smile;

If not, why then this parting was well made.”












3. 5-68

“This was the noblest Roman of them all.

All the conspirators, save only he,

Did that they did in envy of great Caesar;

He, only in a general honest thought

And common good to all, made one of them.

His life was gentle, and the elements

So mixed in him that Nature might stand up



And say to all the world, ‘This was a man!’”








Is he sincere?
