He had a fever when he was in Spain, And when the fit was on him, I did mark How he did shake: ‘tis true, this god did shake; His coward lips did from their colour fly, And that same eye whose bend doth awe the world Did lose his luster: I did hear him groan: Ay, and that tongue of his that bade the Romans Mark him and write his speeches in their books, Alas, it cried ‘Give me some drink, Titinius,’ As a sick girl. Ye gods, it doth amaze me A man of such a feeble temper should So get the start of the majestic world And bear the palm alone.
To what does Cassius compare Caesar in this speech? a palm tree a Roman a little girl a Spaniard
Can you explain which line?
No one knows?
what have you read of the passage?
or rather, can you narrow down your options?
all but I dont understand what is being compared
I think a roman because hes speaking of romans
that tongue of his that bade the Romans ... does not compare him to a Roman, he already is a Roman
and a palm tree because he speaks of drinking so maybe he needs water or possibly because he bear the palm alone
a palm tree eh ... no, bearing the palm alone is not a comparison to a palm tree
A little girl?
possibly .... how would you back that claim?
He compares him to a sick girl and in the beginning it speaks of having a fever
i agree, that would be the most likely comparison. hes sick and whimpering .... such a powerful ruler and orator reduced to what, crying like a little girl
what about a spainard? because they're always drunks and run their mouths?
hmmm, but we cant back that from the passage given. We have to read it for what the passage gives us and not infer any outside bias into it
in this speech, he got sick in Spain .... doesnt really compare to being a Spainard
Yeah I put girl and got it correct thanks alot.
youre welcome :)
