>>All characters - save Cassius - speak with admiration of the "great"
>But, LS, what about:
>--Caska? whose hands speak even more cuttingly;
>--Decius? the other Brutus, who can o'ersway and bend the flattered
Caesar to his will;
>--party-poopers Flavius and Murellus? put to silence by a Caesar
triumphant over Pompey's blood;
>--Plebeians 1 &3? who blow with the oratorical wind;
>--young Cato? the foe to tyrants;
>--Marcus Brutus? who admiringly murders his natural father, the
unhatched serpent, for his ambition, that same evil spirit lurking
inside the son as well;
>--and finally Antony, yes Antony, Caesar's avenger, his Lupercal
errand boy, who projects that festering resentment onto Lepidus?
Busted! My haste betrayed me. Thanks for yanking my chain.
