Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Caesar, I never stood on ceremonies,Yet now they fright me. There is one within,Besides the things that we have heard and seen,Recounts most horrid sights seen by the watch.A lioness hath whelped in the streets,And graves have yawned and yielded up their dead.Fierce fiery warriors fought upon the cloudsIn ranks and squadrons and right form of war,Which drizzled blood upon the Capitol.The noise of battle hurtled in the air.Horses did neigh, and dying men did groan,And ghosts did shriek and squeal about the streets.O Caesar! These things are beyond all use,And I do fear them. -Calphurnia (2.2.13-26) Caesar used his free will to ignore the warnings about his fate. "Beware the ides of March" -Soothsayer (1.2.21) The Soothsayer tells Caesar to beware of the ides of March, which is when he is going tobe killed, but Caesar ignores this warning. Caesar is killed on the Ides of March. They would not have you to stir forth today.Plucking the entrails of an offering forth,They could not find a heart within the beast.-Caesars Servant (2.2.41-43) Caesar sends his servant to have the priestsmake a sacrifice and send him the news.The news comes back that they couldnt finda heart within the animal, so Caesar shouldntgo out. Caesar says to this, The gods do this in shame of cowardice.Caesar should be a beast without a heartIf he should stay at home today for fear.(2.2.44-46) meaning that the Gods willcall him a beast without a heart also if he stays home in fear. Caesar, beware of Brutus. Take heed of Cassius. Comenot near Casca. Have an eye to Cinna. Trust not Trebonius. Mark well Metellus Cimber. Decius Brutus loves thee not. Thou hast wronged Caius Ligarius. There is but one mind in all these men, and it is bent against Caesar. If thou beest not immortal, look about you. Security gives way to conspiracy. The mighty gods defend thee!     Thy lover,     Artemidorus (2.3.1-10) Calphurnia had a dream that the Romans were bathing in the blood from Caesar's statue. The statue of Caesar had many holes in it. She told Caesar and he was not going to go to the meeting until Decius convinced him to go.He said that Calphurnia's dream was about the Romans being revived by Caesar. Artemidorus writes Caesar a letter warning him about the people that plan to murder him at the meeting. He tries to give the letter to him personally and says it is a petition, but Caesar ignores him and goes to the meeting. This letter could have stopped Caesar from going to the meeting and getting killed if he chose to read it. By: Elizabeth Spadafino and Elisabeth Ralph Haruspex is a class of minor priests who practiced telling the future by looking at entrails of animals. Haruspicy was originally practiced by the Etruscans, the group who lived on the Italian peninsula before the ancient Romans. The priests who looked at these entrails used it to tell the future, which was done in the play Julius Caesar. "Now you know, Casca, I have moved alreadySome certain of the noblest-minded RomansTo undergo with me an enterpriseOf honorable-dangerous consequence.And do I know, by this they stay for meIn Pompeys Porch. For now, this fearful night,There is no stir or walking in the streets;And the complexion of the elementIs favored, like the work we have in hand,Most bloody, fiery, and most terrible."
