The lesson Shakespeare was trying to show in Julius Caesar is that men should.
communicate with women and actually listen to their opinions especially their wives. .
When men don't listen to their wives everything falls apart. First of all, Caesar's death.
could have easily been avoided if Caesar would have listened to Calpurnia. She warned.
him. She told him about her dream and told him that she didn't think he should go.
Calpurnia said to Caesar "Do not go forth today! Call it my fear / That keeps you in the.
house, and not your own." At first Caesar was going to stay home, but then Decius.
convinced him that it would be better if he did go. Caesar trusted Decius's opinion over.
his own wife's opinion of the dream. Calpurnia told Caesar that the dream frightened her.
and she had a bad feeling about him going to the Senate that day. She had a feeling that.
something bad was going to happen to Caesar at the Senate. She was right, but Caesar.
did not listen to her because! she he took the advice of Decius conspirator. .
Decius. This dream is all amiss understanding: It was a vision fair.
and fortunate. Your statue spouting blood in many pipes, in which so many smiling.
Romans bathed, signifies that from you great Rome shall suckreviving blood, and that.
great men shall press for tinctures, stains, relics, and recognizance. This by Calpurnia's.
dream is signified Shakespeare shows here how Caesar's self- important in not listening.
to his wife leads him to his death. If Caesar would have been smart and listened to his.
wife's opinion instead of a killer's opinion, he would not gone to the Senate that day and.
would have had a chance to redeem himself too the conspirators so that they would have.
no need to kill him.
Portia and Brutus are another couple who were not communicating enough. .
Brutus never told Portia about the conspirator's plan to kill Caesar. Instead, he lied to her.
about why he was acting so weird all the time.
