Julius Caesar
                  by William Shakespeare




A English
Project Work
Introduction
The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, also known simply as Julius Caesar, is
a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in
1599. It portrays the 44 BC conspiracy against the Roman dictator
Julius Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of the conspirators at the
Battle of Philippi. It is one of several Roman plays that Shakespeare
wrote, based on true events from Roman history, which also include
Coriolanus and Antony and Cleopatra.
 Although the title of the play is Julius Caesar, Caesar is not the central
character in its action; he appears in only three scenes, and is killed at
the beginning of the third act. The protagonist of the play is Marcus
Brutus, and the central psychological drama is his struggle between the
conflicting demands of honour, patriotism, and friendship.
 The play reflected the general anxiety of England over succession of
leadership. At the time of its creation and first performance, Queen
Elizabeth, a strong ruler, was elderly and had refused to name a
successor, leading to worries that a civil war similar to that of Rome
might break out after her death.
Summary of the play
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 ("Friends, Romans, and
countrymen…") Brutus and Cassius meet
their inevitable defeat. Brutus, the noble
Roman, whose decision to take part in the
conspiracy for the sake of freedom, plunges
his      country      into      civil    war.

  July 100 BC – 15 March 44 BC
His Name

       Gaius Julius Caesar
                      Julius was the
                       family name.
                                       The name of Gaius’

The Julius family claimed to be descended from
Romulus, Aeneas, and thence Venus, which would
make them all partly divine.


                                However, his immediate family
                                was anything but godlike.



                                 Although patricians, the
                                 Caesars were so poor that

  he died when Caesar
  was 15.
THEMES
  Major Themes
   The major theme of Julius Caesar is that misused power is a
   corruptive force. This is seen in the fact that Caesar is a dictator
   suspected of being tyrannous, that Cassius is so power hungry that
   he assassinates Caesar, hoping to become more powerful himself,
   and that Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus become a dictatorial and
   tyrannical Triumvirate, worse than Caesar ever hinted at being.


  Minor Themes
• goodness of loyalty, honor, and friendship;
• the evil of pride, conspiracy, and anarchy;
• the logic of political order;
• and the viability of republicanism as a form of government.
His Antagonists
• Caesar's antagonists are Brutus, Cassius, and the other
  conspirators who do not want him to become the head
  of the Roman Empire.
• They plot to overthrow Caesar and assassinate him
  outside the Capitol; he is an easy target because of his
  fatal flaw - his extreme "hubris" or pride.
• Many times, Caesar is nearly saved by omens and
  warnings, but he disregards them, thinking himself
  infallible.
• He is so proud that he is easily flattered, leading him to
  think less strategically and placing himself in grave
  danger.
Famous Quotes / Quotations
"Friends, Romans, countrymen lend me your ears; I come to
bury Caesar, not to praise him". - (Act III, Scene II).

"But, for my own part, it was Greek to me". - (Act I, Scene
II).

"Cry "Havoc," and let slip the dogs of war". - (Act III, Scene
I).

"Et tu, Brute!" - (Act III, Scene I).

"Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more". -
(Act III, Scene II).

"Beware the Ides of March". - (Act I, Scene II).

"This was the noblest Roman of them all". - (Act V, Scene V).
Information provided about the
             play
William Shakespeare never published any of his plays and
therefore none of the original manuscripts have survived.
Eighteen unauthorized versions of his plays were, however,
published during his lifetime in quarto editions by unscrupulous
publishers (there were no copyright laws protecting Shakespeare
and his works during the Elizabethan era). A collection of his
works did not appear until 1623 (a full seven years after
Shakespeare's death on April 23, 1616) when two of his fellow
actors, John Hemminges and Henry Condell, posthumously
recorded his work and published 36 of William’s plays in the
First Folio. Some dates are therefore approximate other dates are
substantiated by historical events, records of performances and
the        dates       plays       appeared        in      print.
About the Author
The English writer and poet William Shakespeare is considered the
greatest playwright of all time. Unfortunately, we don’t know many
details about his biography.
There are no portraits, pictures or drawings of Shakespeare while he
was still alive. Shakespeare married at 18 and wrote his first known play
when he was 25 years old; he also acted in some of the plays.
Shakespeare only finished grammar school and never studied in the
university.
There are over 80 different translations of his plays and poems. The
number of translations of Shakespeare’s works all over the world is
second only to the Bible.
More than 25,000 different words are used in the works of Shakespeare,
including many that he created. Most people use only 2,000 or 2,500
words in speaking and writing: so, Shakespeare used ten times the
normal amount of words!
A really surprising fact: the great writer’s wife and children were all
illiterate!
The Globe Theatre




This is the Globe Theatre, London. It’s a modern reconstruction
of the ancient theatre where Shakespeare’s company acted.
Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the original theatre in the 17th
century. The new Globe Theatre was opened to public in 1997.

Julius Caesar

  • 1. Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare A English Project Work
  • 2. Introduction The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, also known simply as Julius Caesar, is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599. It portrays the 44 BC conspiracy against the Roman dictator Julius Caesar, his assassination and the defeat of the conspirators at the Battle of Philippi. It is one of several Roman plays that Shakespeare wrote, based on true events from Roman history, which also include Coriolanus and Antony and Cleopatra. Although the title of the play is Julius Caesar, Caesar is not the central character in its action; he appears in only three scenes, and is killed at the beginning of the third act. The protagonist of the play is Marcus Brutus, and the central psychological drama is his struggle between the conflicting demands of honour, patriotism, and friendship. The play reflected the general anxiety of England over succession of leadership.

  • 16. THEMES Major Themes The major theme of Julius Caesar is that misused power is a corruptive force. This is seen in the fact that Caesar is a dictator suspected of being tyrannous, that Cassius is so power hungry that he assassinates Caesar, hoping to become more powerful himself, and that Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus become a dictatorial and tyrannical Triumvirate, worse than Caesar ever hinted at being. Minor Themes • goodness of loyalty, honor, and friendship; • the evil of pride, conspiracy, and anarchy; • the logic of political order; • and the viability of republicanism as a form of government.
  • 17. His Antagonists • Caesar's antagonists are Brutus, Cassius, and the other conspirators who do not want him to become the head of the Roman Empire. • They plot to overthrow Caesar and assassinate him outside the Capitol; he is an easy target because of his fatal flaw - his extreme "hubris" or pride. • Many times, Caesar is nearly saved by omens and warnings, but he disregards them, thinking himself infallible. • He is so proud that he is easily flattered, leading him to think less strategically and placing himself in grave danger.

Eighteen unauthorized versions of his plays were, however, published during his lifetime in quarto editions by unscrupulous publishers (there were no copyright laws protecting Shakespeare and his works during the Elizabethan era). A collection of his works did not appear until 1623 (a full seven years after Shakespeare's death on April 23, 1616) when two of his fellow actors, John Hemminges and Henry Condell, posthumously recorded his work and published 36 of William’s plays in the First Folio. Some dates are therefore approximate other dates are substantiated by historical events, records of performances and the dates plays appeared in print.

  • 22. About the Author The English writer and poet William Shakespeare is considered the greatest playwright of all time. Unfortunately, we don’t know many details about his biography. There are no portraits, pictures or drawings of Shakespeare while he was still alive. Shakespeare married at 18 and wrote his first known play when he was 25 years old; he also acted in some of the plays. Shakespeare only finished grammar school and never studied in the university. There are over 80 different translations of his plays and poems. The number of translations of Shakespeare’s works all over the world is second only to the Bible. More than 25,000 different words are used in the works of Shakespeare, including many that he created. Most people use only 2,000 or 2,500 words in speaking and writing: so, Shakespeare used ten times the normal amount of words! A really surprising fact: the great writer’s wife and children were all illiterate!
