In Act 4 of "Julius Caesar", what lingering effects does the quarrel have between Cassius and Brutus?
1 Answer | Add Yours
It shows the distrust and disjointedness of Brutus and Cassius's alliance. Brutus's decision to march to Philippi and not wait for Antony to come to him is an effect of this fight as well. Combining the lack of trust and the lack of agreement over the military tactics, Brutus and Cassius set their troops up for failure. This is also foreshadowing the misinterpretation of Cassius about Brutus's death, leading to Cassius taking his own life.
