The Main Plot
The play opens with Julius Caesar's arrival in Rome after his successful military campaigns. Some senators, like Brutus and Cassius, are worried about his increasing power. So, in order to prevent Caesar from becoming a tyrant, they plot to assassinate him.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5. The language used in the text, which is Elizabethan English, makes it difficult for me to give it a perfect score. Another reason is that it failed to captivate or impress me. I'm not into reading theatre plays, so perhaps that's why. However, it still was an enjoyable read in some parts.
Author: William Shakespeare
Language: Early Modern English
One of my favourite scenes in the play is "Mark Anthony's Speech." What I loved was Anthony's skill with words; he had changed the crowd's opinion, and reversed the course of the political situation.Additionally, the tension and emotional depth in this scene has left a lasting impression on me as a reader. It might just be one of the few scenes that have kept me intrigued.
