  • Going with Cassius is better for Rome. Evidence: “Be factious for redress for all these grieves, and I will set this foot of mine as far as who goes farthest.”P43
  • That Romans are like captives and restricted under Caesar’s rule. Evidence: “So every bondman in his own hand bears the power to cancel his captivity.” p41

Revealed about Brutus:
  • He is Smart and aware and takes caution when first approached by Cassius. However, he tends to agree with Cassius and considers what he is saying because of his ways of speech and because he views him as a friend.

  • Caesar not worthy as king, and it is better for Rome to not have one king.

Evidence: Brutus: “What means this shouting? I do fear, the people choose Caesar for their king.”

Revealed about Cassius:
  • Skilled in ways of speech, Cassius uses language and methods that deceive other characters. He is smart and cunning and very deceitful and manipulative. He can turn people around and make them change their loyalties (from Caesar to someone else.) These traits allowed him to live within the society and be in politics without exposing his true bad intentions. He is like a spy that operates from the inside of the Senate and Rome etc…
