Julius Caesar Essay

Did they really want to help Rome or just do it for power? Who is responsible? The people of Rome celebrated for Caesar's return, even Brutus was good friends with him but Cassius tricked Brutus into thinking Caesar just wanted power and that's why Caesar is being kind to all the people then when he is crowned king he will change, not in a good way. One day Caesar was asked three times to be king but he denied all the times, then a soothsayer told him to beware of the ides of March. Cassius had a couple people to go on his side. One day Caesar's wife had bad dreams about him dieing so she told him not to go and get crowned but he did anyways and got killed. Cassius is the most responsible for Caesar's death.

This dream is all a miss interpreted. It was a vision fair and fortunate. Your statue spouting blood in many pipes, in which so many smiling Romans bathed, signifies that from you great Rome shall suck reviving blood, and that great men shall press for tinctures, stains, relics, and cognizance. This by Calphurnia's dream is signified. - Decius

And this way have you well expounded it. - Caesar (II, ii, 88-96)
