I have an English project on Julius Caesar. I'm a sophomore in high school, by the way. I have to have a quote from act five of the play and connect it to something that happened in the last fifty years. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I have to have the quote picked by Thursday March 15. So help is needed ASAP.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. First of all, find a quote from Julius Caesar, look at the headlines of what is happening in the world today and I'm sure you'll find something to fit:



If you meant Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (the play), let us know!



I did mean the Shakespeare Play just to let everyone else know.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum again. Each time you post try to make it as clear as you can and we can avoid misunderstanding! Here is further help for you:

4. http://www.online-literature.com/quotes/quotation_search.php?author=Shakespeare&from=Julius

Using the excellent websites that SraJMcGin has given you to locate places in the play where you might find suitable quotations, here are some topics to consider within the last 50 years with which you might compare/connect a quotation:

~~a dictator
~~a dictator who was assassinated
~~a dictator who was deposed/overthrown by his own people
~~a group of people who tried a coup and succeeded, but didn't get the type of government they wanted after all

Then use http://www.google.com to find instances of any of these or others that interest you. Remember -- with searching, if you don't find what you want at first, keep trying with different combinations of search terms (key words).

Let us know what you come up with, and someone here will be happy to critique your thinking.


okay. this is what i came up with:
the lines may be wrong as this is out of my english book.
"His life was gentle, and the elements/So mix'd in him that Nature might stand up/And say to all the world, 'This was a man!'" (V.v.73-75)
I am comparing the quote to JFK and his assassination and how the people of America mourned him.
Does this sound okay?
