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...

According to article, leadership fundamentals combine past, current and emerging ideas into wholes. 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.

The Netherlands

...Because The Netherlands is a small flat country it often has windy conditions, more in the winter than in the summer, and more among the coastal areas than inland. The History The Netherlands came into existence after Napoleon (1830). However Between 1815 and 1830 The Kingdom of The Netherlands also included Belgium but now consists of twelve provinces: Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe, Over Ijssel, Flevoland, Gelderland, Utrecht, North-Holland, South-Holland, Zealand, North Brabant and Limburg. There is more confusion about this country more than any other due to two major cities that are the most spoken about which are Hague, Rotterdam, and Amsterdam. However, the previous history of what is now known as The Netherlands is rich. Julius Ceasar found the area which was then inhabited by Germanic tribes. They resisted Rome’s rule until 13 B.C., and at that, time became only allies of Rome. The Franks reigned from the 4th – 8th century and then they were under the rule of the famous Charlemagne. The land was later passed from the Burgundy to the Austrian Hapsburgs and finally, in the 16th century, came under Spanish rule. At the time of the Golden Age of the Dutch, around the 17th century most ships came from two areas. North Holland and South Holland. At that time the name The Netherlands did not exist and most people referred to their province or simply say they were from Holland, hence confusion about The Netherlands and Holland being the same entity. Prior to the......

...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 put into the same vessel of water in an immediate state’ will not the water seem cold to one hand and warm to another?” (The Empiricists, pg 225). We perceive things differently and because how we perceive them through our minds. On pg 248 of The Empiricists Hylas acknowledges whatever we perceive we perceive by senses and immediately. Hylas uses an example of “I took a picture or statue of Juluis Ceasar, I may be said, after a manner to perceive him by my sense, (The Empiricists, pg 248”). But he claims that he can indirectly perceive it, just as when he sees a picture of Julius Caesar, he directly perceives lines and colors but not Caesar directly. If a man has never seen a picture of Caesar he will perceive the same picture but will not have a knowledge of who it is but will have knowledge that is a man in a picture because he perceives it through sight which is perceived through your senses and not from memory. With philosophical skepticism it questions whether we are certain of something. “A solution to skipping skepticism is to accept both distinctions and to produce a method for distinguishing mere beliefs from knowledge (class handout)”. Skepticism requires the distinction between true belief and knowledge. The......

Analysis * It lacks depth, both metaphysical and psychological; though structurally sound, its characters are not multi-dimensional, and it lacks both the great poetic strength and the capacity to surprise that the best of the tragedies possess. It is, nevertheless, a solid play, united in structure and theme--the playwright is very much in command of his characters, one feels, although this sense of control may actually weaken the play: The dramatis personae never seem able to escape the iron structure that the plot imposes. * Oedipus analogy. * Mother-Son dynamic – engine for tragedy * Plebeians vs, Patricians. * Public vs. Private sphere (Julius Ceasar) * Lack of soliloquy – lack of metaphysical and psychological depth * T.

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

...modern expression 'to strike oil' or to get rich quick. An idea of the immense wealth of India could be gathered from the fact that when Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi destroyed the far famed temple of Somnath he found such immense riches and astonishing diamonds cooped up in the single “Idol of Shiva” that it was found quite impossible to calculate the value of that booty. Gold, the emblem of wealth, was first found in India. India was the home of diamonds and other precious stones in ancient times. Periplus says that “the Greeks used to purchase pieces of gold from the Indians.” Nelkynda or Neliceram, a port near Calicut on the Malabar Coast, is said to have been the only market for pearls in the world in ancient times. The pearls presented by Julius Ceasar to Servilia, the mother of Brutus, as well as the famous pearl earring of Cleopatra, were obtained from India. The most famous diamonds in the world are natives of India. Though the Pitt (or the Regent as it is now called) weights 136 carats and is larger in size, yet the Kohinoor, weighing only 106 carats, hallowed by ages of romantic history, is the most famous diamond in the world. Both were taken from India by the British. But the mythological and historical value of the Kohinoor is untold.  The Priceless Peacock Throne What is the costliest single treasure made in the last 1,000 years?
