There have been many great leaders in our history, one of who is Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar was born a leader and died a leader. From his uprising triumphs, which he had many of, to his tragic down fall. A reason for his down fall was that he was too ambitious. Another reason for his demise is the be tral of his so-called best friend Brutus. Envy and jealously which also was a factor of Caesars death.
He was a brave man and he cared about what the society thought of him. He doesnt like to be thought of as a coward. He does his best to keep his image. In the play Julius Caesar Caesar was influenced by his wife, the messenger, and the pressure to keep up his good image.
Calpurnia, Caesars wife was wealthy women who cant have babies. She has many omens which Caesar thinks are silly and ignores them. The day of Caesars death she had an omen. Her omen was that Caesar was going to turn into a statue and people will wash their hands with his blood. She pressured him not to go to the meeting, afraid for Caesars life.
Her omen did come true. Caesar ignored her request for him to stay and left. To Caesar, only superstitious people believed in omens. He went to the meeting not knowing that his wifes omen would come true. He went to the meeting because he didnt want people to think of him as a coward. Also, because he might have been offered the crown for the fourth time.
The messenger who came to get Caesar to the meeting also was influence. Caesar trusted the messenger and told him the real reason he wasnt going and the messenger just laughed and said I will not lie. He also told Caesar that if you do not come I will tell them the real reason you did not go. To Caesar he thought tha the Romans would think of him as a coward. Caesar said cowards die many times before their deaths which meant that people who turn down fights and wars die before their time because the Roman would think of them less and wouldnt bother to even look twice at that person. To Caesar that was like he was already died and that you backed out of something so important.
