Video 'Julius Caesar': the adder and the ladder

TLF ID M018825

Shakespeare's tragedies provide his audiences with moral dilemmas. Julius Caesar is no exception. In this soliloquy, Brutus ponders whether assassinating Julius Caesar would be in the best interests of Rome. Shakespeare's use of metaphor provides the key to understanding Brutus' motivation, convincingly brought to life by Hazem Shammas of Bell Shakespeare.
