1. Julius Caesar Act 4 Scene 1 Summary
This lesson summarizes the action in Act 4, Scene 1 of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'. In this act, we see another side of Antony - a greedy, power-hungry side that signs away the lives of other people and goes back on promises!
2. Julius Caesar Act 4 Scene 2 Summary
This lesson will cover the events of Act IV, Scene 2 of William Shakespeare's ''The Tragedy of Julius Caesar''. In this scene, Brutus and Cassius both suspect that their alliance is starting to fall apart, and the consequences could be fatal.
3. Julius Caesar Act 5 Scene 1 Summary
As the two factions, the loyal Antony and Octavius and the conspirators Brutus and Cassius, meet on the battlefield, events are put into action that will finish what was started on the Ides of March.
4. Julius Caesar Act 5 Scene 2 Summary
In this lesson, we'll take a look at one of the shortest scenes in William Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar.' Even though it is made of just five sentences, there are some pretty important ideas to take note of. Since the scene is so short, we get a chance to look really closely at some otherwise ignored aspects of the play.
5. Julius Caesar Act 5 Scene 3 Summary
The battle is not going well for the conspirators. The army of Antony has breached the tents of Cassius and his men. When troops appear in the distance, Cassius assumes the worst and takes drastic action.
6. Julius Caesar Act 5 Scene 4 Summary
This lesson summarizes Act 5, Scene 4, and reveals the events in previous scenes of William Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar.' In Scene 4, Lucilius claims to be Brutus on the battlefield, but Antony knows the man is an imposter.
7. Julius Caesar Act 5 Scene 5 Summary
This lesson will summarize Act V, Scene 5 of ''Julius Caesar''. This scene is best known for Brutus's death and it is the final scene in the play. In this scene, Brutus reminds us of his honorable nature and Marc Antony and Octavius vow to respect his remains, but we are not told what the future holds for our other characters.
