Inflexibility versus Compromise in Julius Caesar

Group 1: Shamella McGhee

Toya Richardson

Amanda Jones


The theme of inflexibility versus compromise is an implied theme within the play.

It is not explicitly expressed within the play.


CAESAR

  • Caesar prides himself on his steadfastness.

  • This characteristic leads to his death.

    • He refuses to heed to the omen of the Soothsayer.

    • He goes to the Capitol and is ultimately murdered by the conspirators.


BRUTUS

  • Brutus is stubborn and inflexible.

  • In the play individuals succeed through adaptability, bargaining, and compromise.

  • Brutus’s unbending though honorable ideals leave him open for manipulation by Cassius.

  • Brutus focuses on the quick removal of Caesar from power.

  • He does not consider the tragic implications of being apart of the Conspiracy.

  • He ultimately dies as the result of his stubbornness and inflexibility.


ANTONY

  • Antony is the most flexible character in the play.

  • He is able to gain power through manipulation.

    • Antony manipulates Brutus and Cassius when he persuades them to let him perform Caesar’ funeral speech.

    • Antony manipulates the crowd during Caesar’s funeral.

  • Although Antony is a successful politician, the play raises questions about his morality.


Big Idea

  • LOYALTY AND BETRAYAL

    • The characters fail to exercise loyalty.

    • They all exhibit betrayal.

    • Caesar and Brutus both meet tragic ends through their inability to display flexibility and compromise.
