I have read a few books of Shakespeare last two weeks. Those are "The Tragedy of Richard Ⅲ", "Julius Caesar" and "Power and Anbition in Shakespeare". "Power and Anbition in Shakespeare" is the book that was collected five Shakespeare's work "RichardⅢ" "HenryⅤ" "julius Caesar" "Hamlet" "Machbeth". These stories all are outlines.
Today I am going to introduce mainly about "julius Caesar"
シェイクスピアシリーズの４作目は、「The Tragedy of Richard Ⅲ」。 ５作目は「Julius Caesar」。 この他に「Love in Shakespeare Five Stories」－ これには粗筋だが、「The Taming of the Shrew」、「Romeo and Juliet」、 「Twelfth Night」、「Othello」、「Antony and Cleopatra」の５作がおさめられている」。 また、「Power and Ambition in Shakespeare」－ これも粗筋版で「RichardⅢ」、「HenryⅤ」、「julius Caesar」、 「Hamlet」、「Machbeth」の５作がおさめられている。
ブルータスは、市民の前で演説する。 「Caesar is my friend, but I love Rome more than I love Caesar and I love Freedom more than I love Caesar. I killed Caesar because he was ambitions. He wanted to be king. He wanted to take away our freedom.」 「Antony is here. He wants to speak to you. Please listen to what he say. He speaks with my permission.」
アントニーが演説する。 「friend, Romanns! Brutus has told you that Caesar was anbitions, and Brutus is an honourable man. But I want to ask you something. Caesar made rome rich with his victory - was that ambitious of him? I offerd him the crown at the feast of Lupercal,and he refused it. He refused it three times - was that ambitious of him? Was Caesar ambitions then.」
市民はアントニーを支持する。 「Caesar didn't want to be king. Brutus and his friends are murdderers and traitors. We'll kill them all」
アントニーは兵をあげ、ブルータス、カシアス軍は敗北する。 カシアスもブルータスも捕虜になることを拒否し、死を選ぶ。 Brutus beg his friend. Hold my sword for me, and let me run on it.
At last scene, Antony says. Brutus was the best man of all the conspirators. All of them hated Caesar. They killed him because they were frightened of him. Burutus was different. He killed Caesar because he loved Rome, Brutus was a noble man!
