    Julius Caesar

    Love to learn it.

    Act 3, Scene 2

    Scene Summary

    The Importance of Oratory

    The Power of the Mob

    Rome, the First Mega-City

    [Enter Brutus and Cassius, and a throng of Citizens]


    We will be satisfied! Let us be satisfied!


    Then follow me and give me audience, friends.

    Cassius, go you into the other street

    And part the numbers


    Those that will hear me speak, let 'em stay here;

    Those that will follow Cassius, go with him;

    And public reasons shall be renderèd

    Of Caesar's death.

    First Plebeian

    I will hear Brutus speak.

    Second Plebeian

    I will hear Cassius, and compare their reasons,

    When severally

    we hear them rendered.

    [Exit Cassius, with some of the Citizens. Brutus goes into the pulpit.]

    Third Plebeian

    The noble Brutus is ascended. Silence!


    Be patient till the last.


    Romans, countrymen, and lovers

    , hear me for my cause,

    and be silent, that you may hear. Believe me for mine

    honor, and have respect to mine honor, that you may

    believe. Censure

    me in your wisdom, and awake your

    senses, that you may the better judge. If there be any in

    this assembly, any dear friend of Caesar's, to him I say

    that Brutus' love to Caesar was no less than his. If then

    that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this

    is my answer: not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved

    Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living, and die

    all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men?

    As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate,

    I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honor him; but as he

    was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy

    for his fortune; honor for his valor; and death for his

    ambition. Who is here so base

    that would be a bondman

    ? ...

    If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so rude

    that would not be a Roman? If any, speak, for him have

    I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his

    country? If any, speak, for him have I offended. I pause for

    a reply.


    None, Brutus, none.


    Then none have I offended. I have done no more to

    Caesar than you shall

    do to Brutus. The question

    of his death is enrolled

    in the Capitol; his glory not extenuated


    wherein he was worthy; nor his offenses enforced

    , for

    which he suffered death.

    [Enter Antony and others, with Caesar's body.]

    Here comes his body, mourned by Mark Antony, who,

    though he had no hand in his death, shall receive the

    benefit of his dying, a place in the commonwealth

    , as

    which of you shall not? With this I depart — that, as I slew

    my best lover for the good of Rome, I have the same

    dagger for myself, when it shall please my country to need

    my death.


    Live, Brutus! live, live!

    [Brutus descends from pulpit.]

    First Plebeian

    Bring him with triumph home unto his house.

    Second Plebeian

    Give him a statue with his ancestors.

    Third Plebeian

    Let him be Caesar.

    Fourth Plebeian

    Caesar's better parts

    Shall be crown'd in Brutus.

    First Plebeian

    We'll bring him to his house with shouts and clamors.


    My countrymen —

    Second Plebeian

    Peace, silence! Brutus speaks!

    First Plebeian

    Peace, ho!


    Good countrymen, let me depart alone,

    And, for my sake, stay here with Antony.

    Do grace

    to Caesar's corpse, and grace

    his speech Tending to

    Caesar's glories, which Mark Antony,

    By our permission, is allowed to make.

    I do entreat you not a man depart,

    Save I alone, till Antony have spoke.

    [Exit Brutus.]

    First Plebeian

    Stay, ho, and let us hear Mark Antony.

    Third Plebeian

    Let him go up into the public chair.

    We'll hear him. Noble Antony, go up.


    For Brutus' sake I am beholden to you.

    [Goes into the pulpit.]

    Fourth Plebeian

    What does he say of Brutus?

    Third Plebeian

    He says, for Brutus' sake,

    He finds himself beholden to us all.

    Fourth Plebeian

    'Twere best he speak no harm of Brutus here.

    First Plebeian

    This Caesar was a tyrant.

    Third Plebeian

    Nay, that's certain.

    We are blest that Rome is rid of him.

    Second Plebeian

    Peace! Let us hear what Antony can say.


    You gentle Romans —


    Peace, ho! Let us hear him.


    Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.


    I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.

    The evil that men do lives after them;

    The good is oft interrèd

    with their bones —

    So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus

    Hath told you Caesar was ambitious.

    If it were so, it was a grievous fault,

    And grievously hath Caesar answered it

    . Here, under leave

    of Brutus and the rest —

    For Brutus is an honorable man;

    So are they all, all honorable men —

    Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral.

    He was my friend, faithful and just to me.

    But Brutus says he was ambitious,

    Mark Antony's Speech in Context

    Mark Antony's speech from Shakespeare's has become justly famous as an example of skilled rhetoric. People still say 'Friends, Romans, countrymen…!' to get each other's attention. In the context of the play's action, the speech is even more gripping.

    It comes almost directly after the assassination of Caesar, which occurs in the first scene of Act 3. That's the event to which the entire play had been leading...and now everyone's dealing with the fallout. Caesar was assassinated in order to put a stop to his (perceived) tyranny over the Republic of Rome. (The extent to which Rome can truly be a republic is up for debate.) Caesar's death has been literally and figuratively earth-shaking. The populace of Rome has gathered outside the Senate—at the figurative heart of Rome, and thereby of the world—demanding explanations.

    The men who conspired to assassinate Caesar know that Mark Antony is a risk. He was Caesar's friend, and he is a loose cannon. But after Antony shakes hands with each of them, they decide to let him speak. Cassius, one of the chief conspirators, has commanded Antony not to speak against their action; Brutus, the other conspirator, has primed the crowd with his own speech. Antony, then, has to condemn those who killed Caesar without seeming to do so.

    The Speech: Synopsis & Analysis

    When Antony gets up to speak, he's faced with a hostile audience. There is no magical, sudden silence. Some want him to speak; others are muttering threats against him and accusing Caesar of tyranny (Act 3, Scene 2, Lines 68-70). Antony starts with 'You gentle Romans-- ' (Act 3, Scene 2, Line 71) and can't even make himself heard over the crowd. He knows he has a very short window of time in which to get people's attention before they start shouting again—or throwing things. So he gets straight to the point:

    (Act 3, Scene 2, Lines 72-76)

    Note how quickly Antony assures the crowd he's on their side—he's not here to praise Caesar—but then goes on to indicate that he's deliberately ignoring the good things Caesar did in his lifetime. He continues to use this strategy of using irony (or using words to express a meaning that is the opposite of their literal meaning) to undermine his own apparent declarations throughout the speech.
