“Cowards die many times before their deaths;The valiant never taste of death but once.”
"The story of Rome is the story of the world Napolean once said"
Deciphering this scene shouldn’t be as difficult as decoding Shakespeare’s writings. This painting clearly shows the power Caesar holds, it reveals Shakespeare’s comparison between someone who is a coward-someone who imagines death with paralyzing fear, someone who dies “many times before their death” to someone who is a valiant and will never be afraid to stare death in the face. " it was through the subconscious mind that Shakespeare perceived the truths hidden from the average man of his day, it was the response of his subconscious mind"Caesar’s body language clearly tells us that he is in power-he does not fear death and will live standing up rather than on his knees. Hail, Caesar!
Was Julius Caesar a VILLIAN or a HERO?
