What is ironic about the timing of Caesar’s murder (in relation to the preceding events)?
He has just finished saying how he is one who is as “constant as the Northern Star” and
comparing himself to Olympus. He is destroyed just after proclaiming his magnificence
and indestructibility.
In the moments following Caesar’s death, what do the conspirators proclaim to justify their
deed?
“Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead!”
Antony’s servant brings a message to Brutus. What does he say?
Antony praises Brutus for being honest and noble and requests to be able to safely come
see Brutus to hear why Caesar was murdered.
Antony wants to speak at Caesar’s funeral. What reaction does Brutus have? Cassius?
Brutus would let him speak. Cassius thinks it is too dangerous for them to let Antony
speak to the people.
Under what conditions will Antony speak at the funeral?
He will be allowed to speak if he doesn’t blame the conspirators, admits he speaks by
their permission, and speaks last (after Brutus).
What did Brutus say to the people at the funeral?
He said he loved Caesar, but he loved Rome more. He asked them if they would “rather
Caesar were living and die all slaves then that Caesar were dead, to live all freemen.” He
asked for anyone he had offended to step forth. (No one did.) Brutus attempted to appeal
to the crowd’s reason, to show them that the assassination was the only logical way to do
the best thing for the people.
What did Antony say to the people at the funeral in his now famous “Friends, Romans,
countrymen, lend me your ears” speech?
Antony called the conspirators “honorable men” and does not obviously attempt to
degrade the crowd’s new-found heroes. Instead, he begins pointing our examples of
Caesar’s behavior which clearly contradict the accusations made by the conspirators. He
notes that Caesar shared the spoils of war, showed compassion for the common people,
and denied acceptance of the crown three times. These were not deeds of an ambitious
man, so Antony said. Throughout the speech, he masterfully manipulates the crowd’s
emotions until, at the end, they praise him and Caesar and are ready to riot.
Why did Brutus and Cassius flee Rome?
Their lives were in danger after Antony’s remarks at the funeral.
What is the point of Act III Scene III?
It graphically shows the violent mood of the crowd. Even when told they have the wrong
Cinna, they want to destroy him anyway for his bad verses and for having the same name
as Cinna the conspirator.
