After Caesar dies, in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, the people yet again show their fickle nature as they celebrate Caesar's life. Antony underlines this fickle nature of the people in his funeral speech for Caeser. So what the people do is decide they need to revenge Caesar's death, which Antony convinces them can only be done by driving Brutus and his conspirators out of Rome.

Though the people may have told others and themselves they were doing this for Caesar, in reality, they did it for themselves. Shakespeare really goes to great lengths to show how uneducated and reactionary the people of Rome are.
