Julius Caesar citizens.

Extracts from this document...


Julius Caesar citizens Introduction The citizens are like people with no minds of their own. They are easily swayed and gulliable. The citizens follow each other and do not act as individuals, which is why Shakespeare does not name them. Shakespeare referes to them as citizens one, two and three. The only citizen that stands out from the rest is the cobbler in Act 1 Sc 1. He uses puns to get his message across to Flavius and Marullus.

Antony does not want to, but the citizens are demanding to hear the will. Antony asks the citizens to wait and makes another speech.
