The Roman Times
Brutus Cries Out For Innocence
Brutus's decision to stab Caesar in the back wasnt a easy one. He has to choose between his loyalty to the Roman Republic and his loyalty to his friend, who seems like he is very ambitious. When Brutus hears how the romane were treating Caesar like a celebrity , he worried for Rome.After killing Caesar and washing his hands with the blood, Brutus defends himself with these lines:
"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. "
Was he wrong ? Did he kill him for his own personal reasons and say it was for Rome or did he mean it ?
Conspirators turn their back on their "FRIEND"
All of the conspirators are envious towards the Caesar and rather one of them being the new ruler.
Caesar is lost.. He doesn't know who is for him or who is against him? He doesn't know why they faked liking him.
