I read Mark Antony’s speech at Caesar’s funeral – “friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” – in school. It did not register.
Years later I came across this recording of Damian Lewis’ on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. It gives me chills every time I watch it.
Before you get too weepy eyed for Caesar, read Michael Kulikowski’s, “A Very Bad Man.” Caesar famous conquest of Gaul was a genocide, with perhaps up to a million killed.
