    In all of Roman history, perhaps one of the most influential men was that of Lucius Junius Brutus. At the pinnacle of his life, he was able to start a revolution that overthrew a monarchy and helped to establish what would become the most power land in the ancient world: Rome. Yet, despite his accomplishments, he has seen very little recognition compared to some Romans, like Julius Caesar. However, Brutus’s life should not be kept in the shadows. For this reason, I propose that a film dedicated to the life of Brutus merits attention. One of the main reasons Brutus stands out is the era in Roman History he was from. At the time, Rome was under the rule of a tyrannical monarchy: one that was generally negative for the majority of the Roman people.…

    On a surface level, it is almost too easy to come to the conclusion that women in the ancient world were socially repressed. For example, in the Roman republic, women were not granted the ability to vote and constantly lived under the will of their pater familias. However, this does not imply that the matrona, female head of household, did not hold a respected position in society. On the contrary, Roman society did have a great respect for the values of pietas and pudicitia, a woman’s commitment…

Shakespeare depicts Brutus as a completely noble Roman in the play Julius Caesar, and this is true on some level. Brutus was very honest and dutiful concerning large-scale affairs, such as the fate of Rome. However, he was also very stubborn and spent a lot of time focused on petty matters (The Gale Group). Shakespeare chose to ignore this dark side of Brutus and only…

    disturbs Brutus is the crowning of Caesar. Brutus fears that if Caesar becomes king, this might cause him to obtain too much power. As stated by Brutus in Scene I, Line 11-13, he said, “I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general. He would be crowned. How that might change his nature, there’s the question.” Brutus cares about the Romans, and he cares more about Rome than Caesar. By giving Caesar the crown, the people of Rome are granting Caesar power. In this quote, the readers…

    Julius rose to his greatness and Cassius was bent on bringing him down from it. Although Cassius had his reason for wanting Caesar to step down he did not need to do it in the way he chose. There was no need for Cassius to persuade Brutus into betraying his best friend. Humans tend to destroy what they can’t have because they’re jealous and feel the need that if they can’t have it then no one can. In society today we still show the effects of the horrid trait that humans carry and that we named…
