"BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH"


The Ides of March (LatinIdus Martii) is the name of 15 March in theRoman calendar, probably referring to the day of the full moon. The termides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months.[1] The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C. Julius Caesar was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate led by Marcus Junius BrutusGaius Cassius Longinus and 60 other conspirators.
On his way to the Theatre of Pompey (where he would be assassinated), Caesar saw a seer who had foretold that harm would come to him not later than the Ides of March. Caesar joked, "Well, the Ides of March have come", to which the seer replied "Ay, they have come, but they are not gone."[2] This meeting is famously dramatized in William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, when Caesar is warned to "beware the Ides of March"

  1. I remember doing Julius Caesar in High School and absolutely loved it. It had all the right ingredients- betrayal, deceit, jealousy and envy and much more-vices today that are still so very rampant.Did Caesar deserve to be killed by a group of self serving ,power hungry men because of his ego and arrogance? I think this for me remains one of Shakespeare's best plays.
