Question: Julius Caesar HELP! TEST TOMORROW?
I have a test tomorrow for this play and I need to know a couple of answers:
1)Why does Caesar fear Cassius?
2)Why does Brutus want to speak at Caesar's funeral before Antony can?
3)How does Brutus die?
4)who gives Brutus an honorable burial?
5)what is iambic pentameter and why did Shakespeare use it?
YOU DO NOT have to answer all of the questions but at least do the best you can to give me a good answer to receive BEST ANSWER
Answer: 1. He feared him because Cassius was ambitiously trying to establish a Republica; that would have restrained the power detained by Giulio Cesare.
3. Brutus committed suicide when his armies were defeated.
4. Antony, Octavius, and others find Strato with the body of Brutus. Octavius takes Strato into his service. Antony eulogizes Brutus as a noble Roman, and Octavius agrees to give him an honorable burial.
5. ten syllables in each line - five pairs of alternating unstressed and stressed syllables
I hope this helps!
