Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Christopher Moore is an American writer of absurdist fiction. He grew up in Mansfield, OH, and attended Ohio State University and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.

Moore's novels typically involve conflicted everyman characters suddenly struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances. Inheriting a humanism from his love of John Steinbeck and a sense of the absurd from Kurt Vonnegut, Moore is a best-selling author with major cult status.

Marc Anthony, Caesar’s friend and one of the assassins, speaks.

Anthony:
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.


Groundling 1:
You don’t even have a shovel. How you going to bury him?


Groundling 2:
You ain’t done a day of digging in your life, ya toff!


Anthony:
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;


Groundling 1:
Entered who with his bone ?


Groundling 2.
Aye, havin’ at that Egypitian tart, weren’t he?


Anthony:
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:


Groundling 1:
He et, too, I heard, did Brutus.


Anthony
If it were so, it was a grievous fault.
And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it.


Groundling 2
He hasn’t answered for anything has he? Dead as doornail, he is. Go ahead, poke him with a stick. Dead. Dead. Dead.


Anthony
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest—


Groundling 1,
What leafs? There ain’t no leafs.


Groundling 2
Brutus has leafs? And he ain’t even sharing.


Anthony
For Brutus is an honourable man;
So are they all, all honourable men—


Groundling 1
Bloody poms, aren’t they. Useless.


Groundling 2
Not a shovel among the lot. How you going to bury him?


Anthony
Oh, never mind.
