Excerpt From This Document
- As the play opens, people have gathered in the streets to celebrate Caesar’s returning to Rome in triumph. He has defeated Pompey, whom the crowds had cheered in the past. Do you think people always cheer for the winner? Are they ever loyal to a loser? What evidence do you have that confirms your opinion about how people react to winners and losers?
- The Roman tribunes, Flavius and Marullus, try to drive the crowds from the streets of Rome. Describe a time when you or someone else was told to “move along.” What was the situation? What was the result?
