Cassius: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,

But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

Brutus and Caesar: what should be in that ‘Caesar’?

Why should that name be sounded more than


(a) Describe an incident the speaker narrates to prove that Caesar was not
different from anyone of them.

(b) How does Brutus justify his behaviour when Cassius accuses him of
behaving in a strange manner towards a friend who loved him? What do
the first two lines of the extract mean?

(c) ‘Age thou art sham’d! ’ What does the speaker mean when he says this?
Why does he mention Junius Brutus?

(d) When the conspirators meet (Act 11' Sc 1), why does Brutus say that their
resolution requires no oath?

(e) Analyse Cassius’ character as seen in Act 1 and 11.
