Power Corrupt of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare

 ‘A man who has held his position high in the society in such deep-seated manner had acquired  the best  outstanding  reception of the world as a harbinger of uppermost human prestige in world literature’ was the remarkable statement applicable to William Shakespeare. He was not only the name of a play writer but also, he was a versatile genius in the sky of English literature. In his literary creation, Julius Caesar’s power corrupt in Rome has been vividly reflected. In Act 1 Scene 1, the victory of Julius Caesar over Pompey’s son has been highlighted where the working people of Rome have a day off to celebrate but Brutus and his followers was planning to eliminate him from the throne of Rome. Brutus’s followers who were Cassius, Casca, Cicero & Cinna, where making different conspiracy on how to stab Caesar in the midst of working in the Senate. When Cassius says “I have much mistook your passion; by means whereof this breast of mind hath buried thoughts of great value, worthy cogitations. Tell me, good Brutus, can you see your face?” Brutus was over ambitious and therefore he was impatient in listening to any advice offered by Cassius. In Act 1 Scene 2, Cassius expresses his grievances in chalking out any plans against Caesar; “To stale with ordinary oaths my love, to every new protestor; if you know.” According to Act 1 Scene 2, with full entourage, Caesar has protested ‘March’ through the streets of Rome where he has just arrived before the races that are the part of the celebration of the feast of Lupercal. From out of the crowd, Casca warned Caesar to suffer the sever results of such marching but Brutus and his followers have observed such marching with high criticism among Cinna and Casca. One conspirator Cassius planned to continue attempts to murder Caesar for which the Romans would live peacefully. Here, Caesar wasn’t being afraid having heard the news of conspiracy against him, he said, “Yet if my name were liable to fear, I do not know the man I should avoid, as soon as that spares Cassius.” In view of the above it is evident, Caesar wanted to build his country but some conspirators like Brutus and his followers who were high ambitious to ascend the throne. Suffice it to say that Caesar has ruled over his country and he admits lots of reforms in different sectors. When he sees that battle is lost, Brutus runs upon his own sword rather than he captured. In this context, Antony gave a moving eulogy over his own body declaring him; the noblest roman of them all. Hence he says, “Fear him not Caesar, he’s not dangerous. He is a noble Roman, and well given.” As the author has entered in English literature as a play-writer but he has thought about the dramatic diction in the world which speaks about the problems of men & women, conflictions of love, hatred, society and friendship. In his flow of writing, he has included all sorts of literary contents very tactfully and used his dialect in the creation of world literature for which he had achieved the highest honour as the greatest play-writer. In making an analysis of ‘Julius Caesar’ we find ‘power corrupt’ of Julius Caesar who was very benevolent to the subjects and made remarkable reforms in the field of education, culture, economics and politics by some conspirators who were over ambitious. The miscreants were all of his people very close to him in the senate. He declared in front of the subjects of his country that he was not coward; rather he was ready to embrace death like being valiant and conscious personality for his motherland. The consequences of conspiracy cannot bring good harvest and as such we find vice has resulted death. Brutus and his followers have been ended after being suffered fatal consequences of life.
