Work Session: Hey y’all! I’m not here today because I’m at a doctor’s appointment for my daughter. Please go ahead and read act V in the text (you can read aloud by tables or silently to yourself if you want) and then answer the following reading check questions:

  1. When Octavius announces that their enemy has come to meet them, how does Antony respond?
  2. Which man is in charge of the army against Brutus and Cassius?  How do you know?
  3. What does Antony mean when he says, “In your bad strokes, Brutus, you give good words?”
  4. How does Cassius describe both Antony and Octavius?
  5. What omens does Cassius report to Messala?  What do you think they symbolize?
  6. How does Brutus view the act of suicide?
  7. What does Brutus say about Cassius at the end of scene iii?  Do you believe Cassius will receive an honorable funeral service?  Why or why not?
  8. How does Brutus die?  Do you believe it is an honorable death?  Why or why not?
  9. Explain the significance of Brutus’ last words:  “Caesar, now be still.  I killed not thee with half so good a will.”
