Julius Caesar

Theme

Loyalty

In Shakespears Julius Caesar, the main theme among most of the characters in the play is "loyalty". Loyalty is expressed by staying true to ones city, all the way to staying true to ones dear friend. William Shakespeare was trying show that loyalty goes a long way, but it can also cause conflict. When trying to stay true to both your country and your friends, you'll have to make some sacrifices and when it all boils down , you'll have to choose one or the other.


Loyalty was portrayed in two different forms by the characters Brutus and Antony. Brutus showed the greatest amount of loyalty to his country, I believe he went about showing it the wrong way, unfortunately."For I love Caesar less, that I loved Rome more", Brutus explains that he loved his city more than he loved his friend. Mark Antony, Caesars dear friend also possessed loyalty and gave the citizens something to think about while he spoke. " When the poor cried ,Caesar hath wept, ambition should be made of sterner stuff, yet Brutus says he was ambitious". Glorifying Caesar and stateing all of his great qualities made people question if he really deserved to die. Antony mourned Caesars death rather than justified like Brutus did.
