    In this episode, I discuss the selection of my moniker “Cassius”, both from the artistic and personal perspectives. And speaking of “Cassius”, here is a selection of other places where you might follow me for even more Shakespearey goodness!

  3. cassius614:

    Cassius seduces Brutus into the “kill Caesar” camp by explaining why Caesar is unworthy of power. But there’s a tiny bit of a hiccup in Cassius’ reasoning that reveals something interesting about Cassius’ character. Let’s take a peek!

    Well, Brutus, thou art noble; yet, I see, 
    Thy honourable metal may be wrought 
    From that it is disposed: therefore it is meet 
    That noble minds keep ever with their likes; 
    For who so firm that cannot be seduced? 
    Caesar doth bear me hard; but he loves Brutus: 
    If I were Brutus now and he were Cassius, 
    He should not humour me. I will this night, 
    In several hands, in at his windows throw, 
    As if they came from several citizens, 
    Writings all tending to the great opinion 
    That Rome holds of his name; wherein obscurely 
    Caesar’s ambition shall be glanced at: 
    And after this let Caesar seat him sure; 
    For we will shake him, or worse days endure.
