1544 Words 7 Pages
In Act 4 Scenes 2 and 3 there is a lot going on involving Brutus, Cassius, Antony, and

Octavius. Brutus and Cassius are joining allies and Octavius and Antony are joining allies. There

is some confusion going on in these scenes, that have you wondering what is going to happen

next. Two of the characters are arguing and not getting along well. Some of the characters are

trying to join forces with each other but aren’t getting along with one another. The fates of each

one of them are all different and any of them are very capable of dying. The word fate means the

development of events beyond a person’s control, regarded as determined by a supernatural

power. Or another meaning is something happening in a particular way. In this paper I

If he does not end up doing that, he will probably end up dead

anyways. Brutus has a “dream” one night and Caesar’s ghost tells him that he will see him at

Philippi. This dream has me thinking that Brutus will definitely die because of this dream. It

seems like Caesar’s ghost is kind of warning him also not to come to Philippi. I think in the

scenes later Brutus will most definitely be killed by Antony and Octavius, maybe even his

partner, Cassius, or by his own self.

Next, I will discuss the fates of Cassius. Cassius was not Caesar’s favorite and he didn’t

really care for Caesar either. Cassius is very sensitive in Act 4. He tells Brutus that Brutus

doesn’t love him and that he should forgive him. Cassius is also very demanding and he doesn’t

like Brutus wanting money from him. Cassius is probably going to end up ruling the whole city.

He seems like King material to me. He is not a good guy but he is very demanding and will let

you know what needs to be done, and when it needs to be done. Cassius may end up dead. Brutus

may kill him because they might get to arguing so bad, that he ends up killing him. Cassius is

good friends with Brutus but Brutus could betray him, like he did Caesar. You never know

I honestly think they are going to both end up dead, seeing how scenes 2 and 3 were. You never

know though, but their fates do not look that good.

Furthermore, I will discuss the fates of Octavius. Octavius is Caesar’s adopted son. He is not

really involved in the play until he finds out Caesar is dead. He is going to join teams with

Antony. Antony and Octavius are on Caesar’s side and want to get revenge for him. Octavius is

probably going to end up taking Caesar’s position. Everybody’s going to like him because he is

Caesar’s adopted son. He actually may be very sneaky and do something that nobody knows

about. He just seems like the type, that is very devious and doesn’t do much but he will come out

of nowhere and do something suspicious. He is very low key and not really around. His fates will

probably be a good outcome, unless Brutus and Cassius plan works and he ends up getting killed.

I hope he does not because I want Antony and him to defeat Brutus and Cassius.

Next, I will discuss the fates of Antony. Antony is my favorite character personally. I just feel

like he always keeps it real and he knows what he is talking about. He is the realist one out of
