Subject: doting wenches in Julius Caesar
'Julius Caesar': I ii 274-279:
Casca: ".....Three or four wenches, where I stood, cried, 'Alas! good
soul,' and forgave him with all their hearts: but there's no heed to be
taken of them; if Caesar had stabbed their mothers, they would have
done no less"
Do those startling lines suggest that there are some for whom leaders
[or perhaps celebrities?] are beyond criticism?
