Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 In the play "Julius Caesar" written by William Shakespeare, different characters go through changes, while some characters remain the same. Change is inevitable.Progress is optional. "O you hard hearts, you cruel men of Rome, Knew you not Pompey? Many a time and oft Have you climbed up to walls and battlements, To towers and windows, yea, to chimney tops, Your infants in your arms, and there have sat The livelong day, with patient expectation, To see great Pompey pass the streets of Rome." (Act 1, Sc. 1, page 9, lines 41-47) "Another general shout!I do believe that these applauses areFor some new honors that are heaped on Caesar."(Act 1, Sc. 2, page 21, lines 139-141) Brutus Antony Brutus, one of Caesar's closest friends, is one of the main people who ends up stabbing and killing Caesar the day he is supposed to become king of Rome. He says he does this for the good of the people of Rome. Brutus's mind is changed because at the very beginning of the play, he is happy for Caesar as his friend, but towards the middle and the end, the happiness of Rome is more important to him than the happiness of his friend. Overall, the change in Brutus from loving his best friend to wanting to kill him is mournful, but he uses the good part of that change to help keep Rome the way it was with no king. Julius Caesar Infographic Julius Caesar himself goes through a change. He becomes more and more greedy and "ambitious" through out the play. Antony is also one of Caesar's close friends. He always stuck by Caesar's side and never let him down. However, Antony was not involved in the killing of Julius Caesar. Antony's opinion on Brutus was changed through out the play and especially at the end when Brutus killed Caesar. Antony changes his mind on Brutus and no longer looks at him as the good guy, but as the villain. Antony's mind is not as easily persuaded as the people of Rome's minds are. Antony then goes on to let Brutus know that he's not convinced that Brutus killed Caesar for the good of Rome in his speech at Caesar's funeral. "Had you rather Caesar living, and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live as freemen?" -Brutus(Act 3, Sc. 2, page 117, lines 24-26) "Yet Brutus says he was ambitious, and Brutus is an honorable man." -Antony(Act 3, Sc. 2, page 123, lines 102-103) Julius Caesar The citizens of Rome had very persuadable minds. For example, at the beginning of the story, Pompey was the ruler of Rome. Julius Caesar had killed him, and instead of being true to Pompey, the people of Rome praised Caesar and automatically wanted to crown him as the new king of Rome. The people of Rome's minds are also swayed when they offer Caesar the crown. They are so determined to make Caesar the king of Rome, when they really have no idea of anything about him or his intentions once he does get his hands on the crown. Another person who changes is Portia, Brutus's wife. She went from being happily married to Brutus to committing suicide because she couldn't deal with the fact that herhusband murdered someone, Caesarno less. -Tony Robbins By: Sajel Jani
