Love trilogy between Julius Caesar, Mark Anthony and Queen Cleopatra:
Born in Alexandria in 69 BC, she may not have been particularly beautiful. Her portrait on coins of the time shows her with a hooked nose and manly features, though her voice was said to be alluring, and she was...

The Life And Death of Gaius Julius Caesar In my opinion, no other man in the history of the world symbolizes military and political strength as much as Julius Caesar does. Caesar was born on July 12, 100 BC in Rome, Italy (Encarta 2000). His father belonged to the prestigious Julian clan (Internet E
Flattery will get you nowhere. At the beginning of the story this quote might appear to be false, but as the story unfolds it only leads to the down fall of all involved. Throughout Julius Caesar, both friends and enemies use flattery and manipulation to obtain their goals.
The first main use
In William Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar was a tragedy that is mainly based on the assassination of Julius Caesar. The character that was in charge of the assassination was Marcus Brutus. Brutus was the most complex character in the play. He was one of the men who assassinate Caesar

William Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the most influential playwrights in history. Believed to have first been performed in 1600, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar quickly gained recognition, and has been recognized since as one of Shakespeare’s more famous works. The play revolves around
Norman Mailer once said “For what does it mean to be a hero? It requires you to be prepared to deal with forces larger than yourself.” In order to truly be called a hero you have to be able withstand powers or forces stronger than yourself. This quote by Norman Mailer is true and two great works

Rhetoric is used in the play Julius Caesar in many occasions. What is rhetoric? Rhetoric is being able to persuade someone for your own good. This is used when Cassius persuades Brutus to join the conspiracy, Brutusâs speech to the plebeians, and Antonyâ

Soon his nephew and adopted son, Gaius Octavian, would join forces with Mark Anthony and Marcus Aemilius Lepidus into a three-way dictatorship. This trans
Is Marc Anthony a Machiavellian schemer or a loyal friend? What is your opinion of Marc Anthony?
What makes Marc Anthony a very controversial figure in history is not his political ambitions but rather his ability to act very quickly in desperate times. It is very brilliant of him
Many things can be said about great men. You never can tell exactly just
what makes a man great. Looks, personality, a strong mind, these are all
good qualities to look for in a man. Speaking as a woman, I know women
look for all these qualities and then some. Does he have a goo
