~Beware The Ides of March. In memory of Julius Caesar~

Bust of Caesar

Marc Antony’s Funeral orationhttp://www.fordham.edu/HALSALL/ANCIENT/plutarch-caesar.html

CAESAR
Who is it in the press that calls on me?
I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music,
Cry ‘Caesar!’ Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear.

Soothsayer
Beware the ides of March.

CAESAR
What man is that?

BRUTUS
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.

CAESAR
Set him before me; let me see his face.

CASSIUS
Fellow, come from the throng; look upon Caesar.

CAESAR
What say’st thou to me now? speak once again.

Soothsayer
Beware the ides of March.

CAESAR
He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

    Thanks- I love Roman history and I’m looking forward to checking out these downloads.

    There was an excellent BBC series called “I, Claudius”, have you seen it? It was made in the mid-70s, and aside from being a great show it features a very young Patrick Stewart and John Hurt.

    Hi,

    I would like to ask you. How did you know about it? Did you have a time machine to travel back to Rome Empire. You listened what they said.
