Great afternoon. I'm going to tell you about the disposition of Julius Caesar's wife Calpurnia, during the morning hours hours for the Ides of March which was also the afternoon Caesar was going to be crowned king however was assassinated instead.
The scene unwraps with oklahoma city and super accompanied by torrential rain because the night before when ever Calpurnia is deeply disturbed by pudgy nightmares of Caesar getting slaughtered by sadistic criminals (sadistic because they were cheerful when stabbing him which in turn depicts that they can were experiencing in getting rid of him). Distraught by his wife's premonitions, Caesar phone calls upon his servant to visit and ask the priests to generate an animal sacrifice to calm the gods. As soon as the stalwart departs, Calpurnia enters the scene and orders Caesar not to leave the house.
However , Caesar was determined to look since, this individual felt that every the dangers face his back but , shall disappear once they see his face.

As a final measure, she begs him to hear her once in my life and send out a message through his good friend Mark Antony to the Senate House saying that Caesar is not well and can not arrive this day. Finally, Caesar gives in to his wife's pleas and chooses to stay home for her happiness.
