Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Claim: Certain people acted upon free will, and certain people ignored fate, but the different views ended up leading to the same place. In Act 1 Scene 2, the Soothsayer tells Julius Caesar to "beware the Ides of March!" (1.2.21)This means that March 15th will be a dangerous day. When Caesar says "He is a dreamer. Let us leave him. Pass." (1.2.29) he finds the soothsayer to be insane, and simply ignores him. In Act 1 Scene 3, Casca describes all of the unusualoccurrences in town, and suggests that they mean bad things will occur. "Against the Capitol I met a lion,Who glared upon me and went surly by,Without annoying me. And there were drawnUpon a heap a hundred ghastly women,Transformèd with their fear, who swore they sawMen all in fire walk up and down the streets.And yesterday the bird of night did sitEven at noon-day upon the marketplace,Hooting and shrieking. When these prodigiesDo so conjointly meet, let not men say,These are their reasons. They are natural.For I believe they are portentous thingsUnto the climate that they point upon." (1.3.20-32) Free Will DEATH OF JULIUS CAESAR In Act 2 Scene 1 Brutus says "Shall Rome understand one man's awe? Wnat,Rome? My ancestors did from the streets of Rome The Tarquin drive, when he was call'd a king. "Speak, strike, redress!" Am I entreatedTo speak and strike? O Rome, I make thee promise:If the redress will follow, thou receivest Thy full petition at the hand of Brutus!"(2.1. 54-61)When Brutus says this, he believes that it is his fate to take up the cause of Rome. He is compelledto take the job because he wants to follow in his ancestors footsteps. This event leads to Julius Caesar's death because since Brutus feels the need to protect Rome, he decides to join Cassius' conspiracyand help kill Caesar. Cassius persuades Casca to jointhe conspiracy to kill Julius Caesar. In Act 2 Scene 2, Calphurnia has a dream that Caesaris a statue that has holes in it. In her dream, blood ispouring out of these holes.She begs Caesar to stay homeand not go to the meeting at the Capitol. Decius decides to turn the dream around, by telling Caesar that it is a good sign. In Act 2 Scene 3, Artemidorus reads the letter he wrotethat will warn Caesar tostay away from Brutus and the conspirators. In Act 3 Scene 1, Artemidorus pretendsthat his letter is a petition in hopesthat Caesar will read it. He gets Caesar's attention, but Caesar refuses to read it. In Act 2 Scene 2, Caesar says "How foolish do your dreams seem now Calphurnia!I am ashamed I did yield on them.Give me my robe, for I will go." (2.2.110-112) Caesar decides that her dream is foolish and that he will go to the meeting. In Act 3 Scene 1, the conspirators free will is what causes them to kill Caesar. When Cinna gets down on his knee and pleads and then the rest of the conspirators join in and Casca stabs Caesar, this is an example of free will. All of these events lead to Caesar's death The events of free will also lead to Caesar's death Fate Effects Effects Effects Effects Effects By: Maddie Brookstone & Jacqui DeMarco
