Caesar REVIEW p. 222, #15; p. 225, # 9; p. 229, #6; p. 238 #4 a-d, g,
Pg 222 #15 -
a) "Know, Caesar doth not wrong, nor without cause will he be satisfied."
b) "But I am as constant as the north star"
c) "To think that Caesar bears such rebel blood"
d) "And men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive;"
e) "I could be well mov'd if I were as you.."
I think showing Caesar as this right before his death helps the reader relate to Brutus and Co., and helps show yet another reason why they're assassinating him.
pg 225 - #9 -
a) "Then follow me, and give me audience, friends." "Who here is so vile, that will not live his country?"
b) "If any, speak; for him have I offended. I pause for a reply."
c) "Believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour, that you may believe."
d) "If then that my friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more."
e) "With this I depart that, as I slew my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same dagger for myself, when it shall please my country to need my death."

a.) Brutus tells them that if they loved Caesar then they were low enough to be slaves, and antonym comes out with Caesars body.
b.) The people begin to feel sorry for Antony and they think that the conspirators should die. When Antony reads the people the will of Caesar they fall even deeper into his trap.
c.) by giving the people complements instead of insulting them he gains their trust and they begin to like him because he believes that they are intelligent. The people do not want to be insulted and Antony understands this.
d.) By declining to read the will, the people become anxious to read it because they want what is denied of them.
g.) The people were so anxious to hear the will, but when Antony moved on, they forgot it because their attention span is very small, their minds jump around trying to follow the intelligent speech of Antony.
