- So I mean as a great soldier and a while a politician who wanted those sixteen hundred years later. George Bernard Shaw the greatest dramatist of R.M. who saw Caesar as a wires and disenchanted old man this program needs a mountain these four views of Caesar and we began up with the great Romans view of himself. The never the eye for a few Yes and warlike people involved they would never do YOU FOR PEACE not accepted on and eight. I sent my cavalry a little bit about some fall of the rest of my forty's the never I have retired and we began to construct the camp. Suddenly they appeared in full force and swept down on my cavalry I had everything to do it once was to flag for my battle line instruct the men on the pump and signal for going into action. My soldiers were so pushed for time they couldn't even take the covers from their fields are put on the helmet. I made my way from. My coming close to the enemies of. Even some of the Roman soldiers were falling down exhausted bleeding from their wounds rose and began to fight again leaning on the new. And so we won. This battle. On hearing news of it The navvy eyes old man send envoys to me and surrender. My teacher. Marked. His speech we are calm. F. Mers. Has merged. With the fighting men only five hundred types of us. Of six hundred tribal leaders only three he ought I love acts murder say I'm not Caesar. I will protect you from. I will secure the safety of your persons and possessions against your neighbors. Thus it is written in season is common. Of course it is stuff written in the commentary. God what was I to do for I had just finished slaughtering fifty five hundred men. Anyway what would you expect me to write about myself who wishes to be considered as less than most of the commentary is the purpose a political purpose. Flip top gun to stop this I won't say he knew more about me than I knew about myself but I will say that he told more about me that I told myself. Listen to plough talk. These are. Great things. And he had a patch. Now this is going. To talk with Fatah. Cry. Do you consider that I have not just calls to weep when I realize that Alexander at my age it conquered so many nations and I you know all this time I have done nothing that is memorable. It's proved. I was enormously ambitious I was a wildly calculating chap no doubt about it. Listen. Caesar was profuse in his expenses by use Greek liberality in theatrical shows in perceptions and public safety can be getting the people saved and everyone was eager to find offices and Arnold. For him. It was a simple political investment boom to see not only that but I really need to have pumped the American my daughter Julia it worked very well. Until Julia died. I was very upset about that. I love Julia but I did not love. Pump there he had his friends in the Senate. Demand that I just spent my get a clean gins Abita clan and enemy of the state. Plutarch's describes the manner in which I fight now my successful campaign against Poppy. I'm a tell of the Tribune the laws prohibit anyone from taking money from the public treasury without proper justification and MC the. And there is a time follow us at a time from. The keys to the Treasury would your defy the laws say that would you have a set the teaser respects not I am being generous when all of those over again near in my power to be treated as I please. I protest in the name of the government if you cause any ammo to stand and I will have you put to death and know this young man it is harder for me to have to say that that it is to do it. I won the war. Against something. I revise the laws of the calendar I started make never seen public way. And let. Their steps needed. My dear friends. Look top tells you why. Brought up and see that the most apparent then most. Is desire. As you have seen these are according to Plutarch's was a callous and brilliant politician these are according to Shakespeare. Disagrees with that estimate. How vile. How contemptible to reduce my greatness of my genius to such a base motive. Only the greatest poets could understand the greatest man to talk with but to be my means for him to take my name is on the from. Shakespeare and you my stature. To talk says that I was hated for wanting to be king before. I was going. To be Caesar was to be king. Of. Not having that being obese. Bryson has to have Kalb County are kind of help. Them out of the season. I. Mean I. Think you to walk for. Shall not stir out of your house today show for. The things that second mean I looked it up on my back. When they shall see the face of see the advantages. I never stood on her. Yes Now they write. A law that will put in the streets and graves have you on and yielded up their dead.

Of all the wonder but I haven't yet of her it seems to me most strange that man fear. Seeing that debt unnecessarily and it will come. When it works. Such a man with two. Unique to the cleaning I would not have wept because I was not at Xander. I would not show mercy and let's have a grounds for minutes. To watch me in the Senate on a set and a fateful day. The Senate is appealing with Mitt when the banishment to publish them. Most most Might they are most hopeful seat I might prevent the and. He's couching than these lowly Curtis's might fire the blood of ordinary men. But I am confident of the Northern Star from fixed and resting place that is no hello in the palm of. The skies are painted with a number they all piled on everyone the child. But there is but one and all the hold his place. So in the world to furnish well with men and men the fashions out of that quick and. Yet in the number I don't know but one who are not saleable. Hold on his rank and shake the motion. Of the I of. That to see. A man about. To learn that all good or really good but if you don't mind. Why don't we show the people what happened less than eight minutes after he me that overbearing last beat. Well of course if I were the stuff toga that Shakespeare made me out I can't say that I blinked and now granted Shakespeare was a great party. But only a great dramatist. I could catch the meaning the quality of my genius and you know what will. Thought of Shakespeare as a dramatist's Yes that's another argument. Off to defeating pump it fast alien I pursued him into Egypt now mark my true genius at shore. The man on the on the left is the pilot. Got in of King Ptolemy Cleopatra younger brother the other men loose just kept them in a room and form a company. Bear witness please just that to me does it came here that interests you that his posts did we sheltered just thought I was pumping foot touched the Egyptian shore air temp out by the stroke of my sword under the eyes of his wife and child remember that season we had given you a full length sweet measure of vengeance. Vents our gift to you was the head of your rival for the empire of them were it not so it is so with this hand that slew Pompei I placed his head that sees a speed motorists who would you have three Caesar had promptly been victorious. Well to the vanquished scenes that's when I saw some pay I slew of good manners he only because he had conquered them. His turn came at last the deed was not to your seat about our thanks to us you keep your reputation for clemency and I'll be on vengeance to. Then. Poor if I could see two to vengeance what would I not exactly me who's a price of this man. Blood. While they don't my son in law my agent friend but trying to you know the monarch of my get Rove did I know it was a Roman shares floating. I'm nice Julius Caesar but I know I will. But you'll give me the green. This LOT of Congress. And then claim I could write to Q. Two we. Haven't had before and severed right hand to I think. Some of them in go up the old bank which doesn't generally to do spy have a noble about injecting you with all your noble clemency was not vengeance. You. Should. Listen. Lucy is said to me.

History after all is an interpretation of the passage is not the past itself. Each generation brings to history its own interpretations and to the All we can be sure of is that the historians or the artists of the future will continue to preserve the memory of Caesar through their own scholarship and their own chief day we have the same for you see the future brings still offers.
