The Julius Caesar - Contains Spoilers quiz

Quizzes | Create a quiz    

Progress: 1 of 20 questions


Though entitled Julius Caesar, the play pretty much skips the life and deeds of Caesar, and deals with his assassination, the events leading up to it, and the aftermath of that act.

Most importantly, what brought Brutus, perhaps the noblest Roman of them all, to an act that not only sealed his fate but signaled the end of the Roman Republic and started the reign of the emperors, exactly what he was trying to avoid.

The play contains some of the most quoted lines in all of Shakespeare and even those people that have never heard, seen or read a Shakespeare play will recognize the line "Beware the Ides of March"

How much do you know of this saga? Let's play 20 questions!

The play begins with Caesar's triumph for the defeat of Pompey. The plebians are in the streets celebrating and two Roman Senators scold a group of them

"You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things! O you hard hearts, you cruel men of Rome, Knew you not Pompey?"

Asserting that the defeat of Pompey is not something that should be celebrated with a triumph like the conquest of the Gauls or any of Rome's other conquests.

They're saucily answered by a cobbler who gives a reason for his being out leading a group of revellers. What's his reason?
