Summary of Julius Caesar

Two Roman leaders, known as tribunes, find common people celebrating the return of Julius Caesar, who just defeated his military enemy, Pompey’s sons. The tribunes criticize the crowd for switching their loyalty and try to end the celebration. During a festival, Caesar ignores a warning from a soothsayer about the “ides of March.” Cassius tries to recruit Brutus to join a conspiracy against Caesar, saying Caesar is becoming too powerful. Casca tells them that Mark Antony offered Caesar the Roman crown three times, but Caesar refused, although less convincingly each time.

After reading fake letters supposedly from the public, Brutus joins the conspiracy. He believes killing Caesar is for the greater good of Rome. The group plans to assassinate Caesar in the Senate. Despite his wife Calpurnia’s warnings, Caesar goes to the Senate. Using a false petition as a distraction, the conspirators stab Caesar. Brutus is the last to stab him. Caesar’s famous last words are “Et tu, Brute?” meaning “And you, Brutus?”

After the murder, Brutus explains to the Roman crowd that they did it for Rome’s benefit. The crowd initially supports him. However, Mark Antony, speaking at Caesar’s funeral, skillfully manipulates public sentiment against the conspirators. He mentions Caesar’s good deeds and reads his will, which leaves money to each Roman citizen. This turns the crowd against Brutus and the conspirators, leading to riots and violence.

Brutus and Cassius prepare for civil war against Antony and Caesar’s adopted son, Octavius. They’re also part of a ruling trio with Lepidus. Brutus is visited by Caesar’s ghost, who warns him of defeat. In the ensuing Battle of Philippi, Cassius and Brutus both die, but not before realizing they’ve lost the cause. In the end, Antony praises Brutus as “the noblest Roman of them all,” saying he was the only one who killed Caesar for Rome’s benefit.

The play ends with a subtle hint of tension between Antony and Octavius, a theme explored in another Shakespearean play, “Antony and Cleopatra.”
