Julius Ceasar

...Peter Delich Italian 230 Research Paper Julius Caesar Julius Caesar; he came, he saw, and he conquered. Caesar is one of the most well-known Emperors of Rome and one of the most influential historical figures. Caesar was a politician and general of the late Roman republic, who greatly extended the Roman Empire before seizing power and making himself dictator of Rome, paving the way for the imperial system. The story of Caesar’s rise to power and fall from grace is one that has been told since the time of the Romans. His accomplishments and contributions to Roman society and the world will surely never be forgotten. Julius Caesar was a distinguished general, influential politician, and a fierce dictator. Julius Caesar was born in Rome around July 13, 100 BC. Although, he hailed from Roman aristocrats, his family was far from rich. When Caesar was 16 his father, Gaius Caesar, died. “His family was closely connected with the Marian faction in Roman politics” (Historical Figures, Julius Caesar par. 2).  At around the time of his father's death, Caesar made a large effort to side with the country's nobility. “His marriage to Cornelia, the daughter of a noble, had drawn the ire of Rome's dictator, Sulla, who ordered the young Roman to divorce his wife or risk losing his property” (Caesar Julius, par 5). Caesar refused and found escape in the military, serving first in the province of Asia and then in Cilicia. Following the death of Sulla, Caesar returned to Rome to......

Julius Ceasar

...The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (originally The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere) is the longest major poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, written in 1797–98 and was published in 1798 in the first edition of Lyrical Ballads. Modern editions use a later revised version printed in 1817 that featured a gloss. Along with other poems in Lyrical Ballads, it was a signal shift to modern poetry and the beginning of British Romantic literature. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner relates the experiences of a sailor who has returned from a long sea voyage. The Mariner stops a man who is on the way to a wedding ceremony and begins to narrate a story. The Wedding-Guest's reaction turns from bemusement to impatience and fear to fascination as the Mariner's story progresses, as can be seen in the language style: for example, Coleridge uses narrative techniques such as personification and repetition to create either a sense of danger, of the supernatural or of serenity, depending on the mood of each of the different parts of the poem. The Mariner's tale begins with his ship departing on its journey. Despite initial good fortune, the ship is driven south off course by a storm and eventually reaches Antarctica. An albatross (symbolizing the Christian soul) appears and leads them out of the Antarctic but, even as the albatross is praised by the ship's crew, the Mariner shoots the bird ("with my cross-bow / I shot the albatross"). The crew is angry with the Mariner, believing the......

What Image Is Presented of Julius Ceasar in Act 1 and by What Means?

...What image is presented of Julius Caesar in Act 1 and by what means? Tension and excitement is created by friends and foes of Julius Caesar, to present Caesar in different ways. At the surface of much of what Caesar says, he comes across rather arrogant. However if you look closely at what he says he seems quite the opposite, and rather vulnerable and scared “I rather tell thee what is to be feared, than what I fear; for always I am Caesar’. Caesar strongly and confidently says this; he, consequently does not truly feel this. Caesar ironically (because he is the leader) feels scared, possibly targeted. Therefore he is saying such things to cover up his true feelings by saying ‘for always I am Caesar’ to say I’m Caesar I’m immune to fear, but this is not completely valid. Caesar’s arrogance is shown when a soothsayer is trying to warn him, “He is a dreamer, let us leave him” Caesar is very patronising and comes across as he is too good for a small soothsayer. “To touch Calpurnia for our elders say the barren, touched in this holy chase shake off their sterile curse” This is rather brutal and insensitive to Calpurnia’s feelings, but, producing a son is a top priority in a man’s life. The fact Caesar was failing, is humiliating for him, and a big worry. To pull the three quotes together Caesar on the surface seems rather brutal, ruthless and arrogant by what he says; however he is really quite fearful and the opposite. Contrasting what Caesar thinks of himself to what other......

...esearch paper topic: The Role Of Women In Julius Ceasar - 862 words The Role Of Women In Julius Ceasar In the play "Julius Caesar" by William Shakespeare, women play an important role. The women are important factors in foreshadowing and in the development of many of the characters. To look at the role of women in the play we must look deeper in to the roles of the only two women in the play; Calpurnia, wife of Caesar, and Portia, wife of Brutus. Both of these women are key in foreshadowing the murder of Caesar. After Caesar's murder we do not hear much of either of them. The main thing Caesar's wife, Calpurnia does in the play is tell Caesar to stay at home on the day of his murder because of many unnatural events that have taken place the night before and because she has had nightmares about his assassination. On the morning of the ides of march is the first time we meet Calpurnia, her entrance is act 2 scene one when she tells Caesar "You shall not stir out of your house today." Caesar decides he shall "forth" until Calpurnia tells him why he shouldn't go to the capitol today. Some of the reasons she included were: A lioness "whelped" in the streets. Graves opened and showed their dead people. Warriors of fire fought on the clouds and drizzled blood upon the capitol. Horses neighed and dead men groaned. Ghosts shrieked in the streets. She than showed her discomfort with these things by saying "O Caesar, these things are beyond all use, / and I do fear them."......

Comparison

...The life of Julius Cesar and his assassination was a lot different than Abraham Lincoln but a little comparable. The two individuals both came from two different time periods. According to julius-caesar2.tripod.com “Julius Caesar was born in 100 BC in Rome to Aurelia and Gaius Julius Caesar”. At the time of Julius Caesar birth, Rome was still a republic and the empire was only beginning. Julius Caesar was a leader in republic country where the people are not involved with the decisions. Therefore, Julius Ceasar had most for the power in his country and was able to form a large army. “With the help of the army at his command, it was possible to conquer new territories and so gain a triumph and the pleasure of knowing that your name would be remembered forever in statues and inscribed in monuments, paid for by the war” (Summary of Julius Caesar's Life and Death). As time went on Julius Caser began to develop more power over the years. Julius made his way to praetor ship by 62 BC and many of the senate felt he was a dangerous, ambitious man. (Julius Caser Biography). Just like Abraham Lincoln, Julius Cesar began to have more enemies once he started getting more power. With the amount of power Julius Cesar had, he started to become a threat to the senators who did like him and the changes he was making in the country. Julius Caesars pushed through a special law giving him a five-year command in Cispine Gaul and Illyricum, both provinces in the empire covering North Italy and the...

Personally, I think a leader is great, not because of his or her power ,but because of his or her ability to empower others, position does not make one a leader. Therefore, I think leaders must be diligent and responsive to fundamental values, skills and characters. They should possess role-model behavior and inspire those whom they lead. Leaders should work for the benefit of others and not for personal gain, they should handle themselves with their heads and handle others with their hearts, they should know the way, go the way and show the way, leaders should use their influence at the right times for the right reasons and finally leaders should take a little greater share of the blame and a little smaller share of the credit.

Coriolanus and Donne

...Act 1.1 * The mob of plebeians, which holds the stage as the play opens, lacks an individual identity but nevertheless constitutes one of the most important "characters" in the story. * They have taken up arms, true, but not without cause: As one of them puts it, "the gods know I speak this in hunger for bread, not thirst for revenge (I.i.22-23)."  * Menenius does makes an attempt at a response, with his story about the stomach and the body. His behavior toward the plebeians contrasts starkly with Martius's--the common people like him, calling him "one that hath always loved the people"; they say of him, "...he's one honest enough! Would all the rest were so!"(I.i.49-52). Although he does not genuinely care for them any more than Martius does (he never actually takes their side in any of the play's political disputes), the people nevertheless favor him because he possesses a gift the play's hero lacks--the gift of public relations. – Compared to Menenius. * The play shows us a city suffering from a power vacuum; wily patricians like Menenius and crafty demagogues like the tribunes now struggle to fill this vacuum, Menenius with his organic conception of the state and the tribunes with their notion of popular rule. Moreover, this political situation can be traced back to Martius; we learn that as a youth he had a hand in King Tarquin's overthrow. One can, thus, see the play's initial situation as an Oedipal moment: The young Martius has overthrown the royal......

Philosophy

...Anthony Charpentier Due Date: 10/7/14 PHI 307 – Ancient Philosophy First Essay Assignment Xenophanes, Socrates, Plato on the possibility of knowledge Skepticism – A skeptical attitude; doubt as to the truth of something. In ordinary skepticism this would mean someone who would doubt the existence of something. A difference between the two is normal skepticism is you try to get it clear in your head. Ordinary doubt - or local skepticism - can usually be tested - and even when it can't, there may well come a time when it can. Many philosophers have had their own version and interpretation of skepticism. Skeptics only denies we have knowledge but does not deny our belief or opinion. Most of which our true belief is just luck and lucky guesses are not knowledge. An example of this can be found in a reading from Humes which he explained that he does not perceive anything else besides his perceptions such as immaterial substance. From different philosophers and readings we can understand there are many different meanings and interpretations of skepticism. According to Philonous presents an argument against Hylas stating that only ideas are perceived, nothing else and thus that we are aware only of the mind. Philonous proceeds to use the same arguments as John Locke to prove things are independent of the mind. Philonous uses a similar example to that of John Locke in which he states, “suppose now one of your hands hot, and the other cold, and that they are both at once......

India’s Glorious Past War for Wealth & Wealth for War

...India’s Glorious Past – War for wealth & wealth for war India is country known for a rich history of wealth and many small and diverse kingdoms before the British came and stole what was rightfully ours. They who came to trade left with almost all of our money, all our knowledge and left us with a poor understanding of society and new and upcoming inventions and innovations which occurred in the world during that time. India, once called a land of paradise, a land which had wealth not only of monetary value but also in terms of our vast knowledge on science, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, trade, architecture, arts and sculpture and many other areas. Indian Kings should the world their wealth by building great many structures, acquiring rare diamonds, breeding white horses and gifting them to all the foreign dignitaries. Although it doesn’t feel like one, India was one of the richest nations in the world up to the 17th Century. In fact most of our country was attacked because of huge amounts of wealth and money that people had here. If history proves anything, it proves that in ancient times, India was the richest country in the world. The fact that she has always been the cynosure of all eyes, Asiatic or European, that people of less favored climes have always cast longing looks on her glittering treasures, and that the ambition of all conquerors has been to possess India, prove that she has been reputed to be the richest country in the world.
