4 Bell Ringer: Given specific lines to review from earlier reading, students will determine if the lines are a soliloquy, dialogue, monologue, or an aside. 1. Cassius & III.i (p ) 2. III.i (p. 908) 3. Brutus & Antony's III.i (p. 903) 4. III.ii (p ) Literature: Given time to read sections of Julius Caesar, Act III and answer analysis questions in small groups, groups will "teach" their work to the class. Given time to complete Act III, students will view the film version for further understanding through performance of the drama.

5 1. What is ironic about the timing of Caesar's murder (Pay attention to what he was saying right before it happened (58-74)? 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 invincibility. 2. Who stabs Caesar first?

6 3. What do Caesar s dying words express? surprise and sadness that Brutus is one of the conpirators tu, Brute?" (III.i.77). "Et (You too, Brutus?) 4. In the moments following Caesar's death, what do the conspirators proclaim to justify their deed? "Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead!"

7 5. 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 come safely to hear the reason Caesar was murdered. 6. Antony wants to speak at Caesar's funeral. What reaction does Brutus have? Cassius? Brutus agrees to let him speak. Cassius thinks it is too dangerous to let Antony speak to the people and "move" them.

8 7. 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).

9 8. What happens that allows us to infer Antony is only pretending to cooperate with the conspirators? Speaking to Caesar's dead body, he apologizes for shaking hands with the conspirators and vows to take revenge.

10 9. What did Brutus say to the people at the funeral? 10. What does Brutus mean when he says, Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more (III.ii.21-22)? 9 & 10. 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 anyone who felt offended to step forward (which no one did).

11 11. What did Antony say to the people at the funeral in his now famous "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears" speech? By saying this, Antony causes what kind of reaction in the crowd? Antony called the conspirators "honorable men" and does not obviously attempt to turn the crowd against them. Instead, he points out how Caesar's actions contradict the accusations of tyrrany and ambition made by the conspirators. By the end, he actually moves the mob toward a near riot against the conspirators.

12 12. What is the difference in the way the two funeral speeches are delivered? How do the plebeians (commoners) react to the speeches delivered by Brutus and Antony? Brutus tries to appeal to the crowd's reason in a very rational way. He tells them the assassination was the only logical way to do the best thing for the people. They agree this makes sense, until... Antony is fiery and appeals to their emotions. He is a master at swaying their emotions to the point they are praising Caesar in the end.

13 13. In Scene 2, Antony turns a shocked, confused crowd of mourners into an angry mob of rioters. Cite at least three specific ways by which Antony achieves this effect. (Provide a direct quote and your own interpretation of that quote for each example.)

14 Antony calls Brutus noble and repeats the phrase he is an honorable man until it appears ridiculous in contrast with the nobility of the slain Caesar. (III.ii.82, 87, 94, 99). Antony points out that he had offered Caesar the crown three times, "Which he did thrice refuse" (97) to show Caesar was not ambitious. He also speaks of Caesar sharing the spoils of war (money & glory)with Rome (98-99) and weeping with the poor (91). He breaks down emotionally before the crowd, showing himself to be loyal and loving, saying: "Bear with me; / My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, / And I must pause till it come back to me" ( ) Antony holds up Caesar s torn cloak as a way of showing how excessively violent the murder was; Antony also treats the cloak as if it were Caesar himself. While telling touching tales of Caesar, Antony keeps bringing up the will until the crowd insists he read it. The will reveals Caesar s legacy to every citizen, which incites the crowd and makes them exact revenge on the conspirators.

15 14. Why did Brutus and Cassius flee Rome? Their lives were in danger after Antony's remarks at the funeral! 15. What is the point of Act III Scene III? This scene shows the violent mood of the crowd. Even when they are told they have the wrong Cinna (the poet instead of the conspirator), they still want to destroy him anyway for his bad verses and for having the same name as Cinna the conspirator. (Not exactly a logical state of mind!)

16 16. What is the turning point of this drama? Choose one and defend it! Brutus's decision to join the conspiracy? Caesar's decision to go to the Capitol? Caesar's assassination? Antony's apology to Caesar? Antony's speech? Other?
