  1. Throughout William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, he makes use of superstitions and the supernatural to foreshadow future events and reveals various feelings of the characters. Shakespeare adds a great sense of anticipation, curiosity and suspense of events to come. He demonstrates these feelings and actions through warnings, nightmares and supernatural occurrences.

  2. What Anonymous wrote is good, but isn't a thesis statement. A thesis statement (singular!) is one sentence. So if you like the ideas in what Anonymous wrote, choose the ONE SENTENCE which would serve as the main idea for your paper.
