Shakespeare


Shakespeare does an excellent job of building suspense in the closing scenes of act two. The letter that Artemidorus intends to give to Cesar is a twist in the plot. Up until this point the audience believes that Brutus and his co conspirators will be able to confront Cesar without him having any prior knowledge. This leaves the audience wondering if the plan will actually succeeded. The final scene reminds me of a locker room scene before the big game of a modern sports movie. The environment is full of suspense. Shakespeare leaves his audience asking one huge question; will the group of conspirators succeed?
