Julius Caesar

DRAMATIS PERSONÆ

ACT I, SCENE I. Rome. A street.

See whether their basest metal be not moved;
They vanish tongue-tied in their guiltiness.
Go you down that way towards the Capitol;

This way will I
disrobe the images,
If you do find them deck’d with ceremonies.

Marullus
May we do so?
You know it is the feast of Lupercal.

Flavius
It is no matter; let no images
Be hung with Caesar’s trophies. I’ll about,
And drive away the vulgar from the streets:
So do you too, where you perceive them thick.
These growing feathers pluck’d from Caesar’s wing
Will make him fly an ordinary pitch,
Who else would soar above the view of men
And keep us all in servile fearfulness.

Exeunt

SCENE II. A public place.

Flourish. Enter CAESAR; ANTONY, for the course; CALPURNIA, PORTIA, DECIUS BRUTUS, CICERO, BRUTUS, CASSIUS, and CASCA; a great crowd following, among them a Soothsayer
CAESAR
Calpurnia!

Casca
Peace, ho! Caesar speaks.

Caesar
Calpurnia!

Calpurnia
Here, my lord.

Caesar
Stand you directly in Antonius’ way,
When he doth run his course. Antonius!

Antony
Caesar, my lord?

Caesar
Forget not, in your speed, Antonius,
To touch Calpurnia; for our elders say,
The barren, touched in this holy chase,
Shake off their sterile curse.

Antony
I shall remember:
When Caesar says ‘do this,’ it is perform’d.

Caesar
Set on; and leave no ceremony out.

Flourish

Soothsayer 
Caesar!

Caesar
Ha! who calls?

Casca
Bid every noise be still: peace yet again!

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.

Sennet. Exeunt all except BRUTUS and CASSIUS

Cassius 
Will you go see the order of the course?

Brutus
Not I.

Cassius 
I pray you, do.

Brutus
I am not gamesome: I do lack some part
Of that quick spirit that is in Antony.
Let me not hinder, Cassius, your desires;
I’ll leave you.

Cassius 
Brutus, I do observe you now of late:
I have not from your eyes that gentleness
And show of love as I was wont to have:
You bear too stubborn and too strange a hand
Over your friend that loves you.

Brutus 
Cassius,
Be not deceived: if I have veil’d my look,
I turn the trouble of my countenance
Merely upon myself. Vexed I am
Of late with passions of some difference,
Conceptions only proper to myself,
Which give some soil perhaps to my behaviors;
But let not therefore my good friends be grieved–
Among which number, Cassius, be you one–
Nor construe any further my neglect,
Than that poor Brutus, with himself at war,
Forgets the shows of love to other men.

Cassius 
Then, Brutus, I have much mistook your passion;
By means whereof this breast of mine hath buried
Thoughts of great value, worthy cogitations.
Tell me, good Brutus, can you see your face?

Brutus 
No, Cassius; for the eye sees not itself,
But by reflection, by some other things.

Cassius 
‘Tis just:
And it is very much lamented, Brutus,
That you have no such mirrors as will turn
Your hidden worthiness into your eye,
That you might see your shadow. I have heard,
Where many of the best respect in Rome,
Except immortal Caesar, speaking of Brutus
And groaning underneath this age’s yoke,
Have wish’d that noble Brutus had his eyes.

Brutus 
Into what dangers would you lead me, Cassius,
That you would have me seek into myself
For that which is not in me?

Cassius 
Therefore, good Brutus, be prepared to hear:
And since you know you cannot see yourself
So well as by reflection, I, your glass,
Will modestly discover to yourself
That of yourself which you yet know not of.
And be not jealous on me, gentle Brutus:
Were I a common laugher, or did use
To stale with ordinary oaths my love
To every new protester; if you know
That I do fawn on men and hug them hard
And after scandal them, or if you know
That I profess myself in banqueting
To all the rout, then hold me dangerous.

Flourish, and shout
