Friends, Romans, countrymen[edit]

Would putting in the whole "Friends, Romans, Countrymen" speech (in a separate page) be a copyright violation? -- 137.132.3.7 18:14, 26 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Julius Caesar is well within the public domain at this point. --Montrealais

Incomplete[edit]

This article is incomplete, we're missing quotes from the last scenes... and there's no paraphrase help. --24.205.180.119 16:32, 31 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Drums of War[edit]

It seems there either is some persistend forgery going on, or a there must be a dispute over the source text. I do no have access to any source, but given the lack of any discussion here and a quick glance at other web resources, I suspect the former. Taking revision 315947 as example to reverse.

I agree

Et tu, brute?[edit]

Actually, while this appears in Julius Caesar, Shakespeare was here probably quoting a line "in the air" - e.g. "The True Tragedie of Richard Duke of York" (anonymous, 1595) contains the line "Et tu, Brute? wilt thou stab Caesar too?"; it occurs in other works around the same time as well - it may even have appeared as early as 1582 (according to the preface to a 1908-published edition of Shakespeare's play.) 24.59.51.98 12:43, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
