Has anyone read Julius Caesar recently?





I have to write an essay but i cant figure out what the prompt wants me to do. Here it is: Many novels and plays explore the dilemma of a character faced with either a morally ambiguous situation or the discrepancy between a personal desire and public duty. In a well-written essay, examine how Brutus is this type of character, and analyze how his dilemma provides the foundation for the tragic plot of the play. If you could break this down, that would be great! Some ideas would also be great. Thanks

    Yeah. Read it a few months back for school (go Cassius X3)The question basically means that there are plays that center around characters who have dilemmas between moral obligations and what they believe to be their duty to the public/ their country. In Julius Caesar Brutus is in this situation. He’s been great friends with Caesar for a long time, even as others began to doubt him, and that is his moral obligation. However, Cassius presents the argument to Brutus that Caesar is a danger to Rome; that he’ll ruin the republic and begin monarchy/ a one leader society again. Brutus is a very patriotic man who believes he should do all he can for his country. And so, on this hand, he feels he should get rid of Caesar to do all that he possible can for Rome. This provides a foundation for the tragic plot of the play because, in Brutus’ eyes, there can be no happy ending. Either He has to kill Caesar, his best friend, or he has to watch his beloved country fall because of his choices. This means that no matter what happens nothing will end perfectly for Brutus…..woops. Got rather carried away. Anyways, good luck! Hope you get an A+ X)

    You can write about how why Brutus’s position is key to both Caesar and the conspirators, the reasons why he wavers toward supporting Caesar, the reasons why he wavers toward supporting Cassius, and finally his ultimate decision and how it drives the conspiracy. Just some ideas…An easy-to-pull-off thesis statement might go like… “While Brutus initially supports Caesar due to [list one or two general traits], [other general traits] ultimately cause him to join the conspirators, a betrayal that provides the foundation for the tragic plot of Julius Caesar.Incidentally, I also had to write an essay on Julius Caesar…on the Ides of March. :D it was ominous.
