The Tragedy of Julius Caesar does not focus on Caesar Although the plot of the story revolves around him the focus of the story is on his lover Marcus Brutus Because of this Caesars character remains an enigma He envisions himself as an invincible god however Shakespeare portrays Caesar as a common man with many weaknesses The gods do this in shame of cowardice Caesar should be a beast without a heart if he should stay at home today for fear No Caesar shall not Danger knows full well that Caesar is more dangerous than he We are two lions littered in one day and I the elder and more terrible and Caesar shall go forth p75 These words spoken by Caesar show how he thought of himself He believed that no one would be fool enough to try to bring any harm to him for he was powerful and godlike However this train of thought was what led Caesar to his downfall Many people thought of Caesar as an egotistical and unyielding man who had the heart of a tyrant and who could be expected to crush any remaining liberties of the Romans under his feet Most of the time he spoke about himself in the third person which gives an arrogant feeling of Caesar to the reader This is shown as Cassius spoke to Casca about the upcoming conspiracy What trash is Rome what rubbish and what offal when it serves for the base matter illuminate so vile a thing as Caesar p45 Caesar was by no means only shown as a foolish man who thought highly of himself Caesars statements about his distrust of Cassius are correct Caesar has every excuse for distrusting Cassius who was already plotting his murder Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look he thinks too much and such men are dangerous p27 Caesar even puts his finger on Cassius primary motive which is envy Shakespeare
