Presentation Transcript


Source Main Characters Plot Commentary Meaningful excerpts Famous quotes


Source Shakespeare found the story in “Caesar, parallel lives” by plutarch. He may have also referred to geoffry chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (the Monk’s tale)

Main characters: 

Main characters Julius Caesar Flavius Dardanius Octavius Caesar Marullus Pindarus Marcus Antonius Artemidorus Calpurnia Aemilius Lepidus Cinna(poet) Portia Cicero FortuneTeller Publius Lucinius Popilio Lena Titinius Marcus Brutus Messala Cassius Cato the younger Casca Volumnius Trebonius Varro Ligarius Clitus Decius Brutus Claudius Metellus Cimber Strato Cinna Lucius

Gaius Iulius Caesar(Rome 13/07 100 b.C.-Rome 15/03 44 b.C.): 

Gaius Iulius Caesar (Rome 13/07 100 b.C.-Rome 15/03 44 b.C.)

Marcus Antonius(14/01 83 B.c- Egypt 30/08 B.c.): 

Marcus Antonius (14/01 83 B.c- Egypt 30/08 B.c.) In his youth, Antony was known to keep dubious company, revelling in numerous affairs and general scandalous behaviour. When he became adult he was a general carouser and gambler. Though, his political education or abilities would never rival other great contemporaries such as Caesar, Cicero or Octavian, Antony seems to have garnered at least some natural oration ability.

Gaius Cassius Longinus(Rome 85 b.C.- Philippi October 42 b.C.): 

Gaius Cassius Longinus (Rome 85 b.C.- Philippi October 42 b.C.) Cassius was a Roman senator, the mover in the conspiracy against Caesar. He studied philosophy at Rhodes under Archelaus and became fluent in Greek.

Marcus Junius Brutus Caepio( 85 b.C.- 42 b.C.): 

Marcus Junius Brutus Caepio ( 85 b.C.- 42 b.C.) Brutus is considered by some people as the symbol of betrayal, by some other people as a nobleman… One thing is sure about him: he was one of the shadiest characters of the Roman empire, able to change his beliefs basing them only on what could be useful to save his reputation and his life. It’s important to remember that after his death, Marcus Antonius, took care of his corpse, remembering Brutus as an honourable man.


Plot Julius Caesar is a highly successful but ambitious political leader of Rome and his goal is to become an unassailable dictator. Caesar is warned that he must "beware the Ides of March“. The prophecy comes true and Caesar is assassinated. Marcus Brutus is a well respected Roman senator who helps plan and carry out Caesar's assassination which he believes will rid Rome of a tyrant.


Caesar's friend Mark Antony provides the famous funeral oration. Brutus and Cassius meet their inevitable defeat. Brutus is the noble Roman, whose decision to take part in the conspiracy for the sake of freedom, plunges his country into civil war.


Commentary Themes Motifs Symbols


Themes Fate vs Free Will Public Self vs private self Misinterpretations and misreadings Rethoric and power


Motifs Omens and portents Letters


Symbols Women and wives While one could try to analyze Calpurnia and Portia as full characters in their own right, they function primarily not as sympathetic personalities or sources of insight or poetry but rather as symbols for the private, domestic realm.
