Julius Caesar is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare and originally published in the late 16th century around 1599.

Set in ancient Rome and based on true events, the tragedy tells the story of Julius Caesar's revenge and betrayal. Rather than being a biography of the leader of the Roman Empire, the play reflects on loyalty, friendship and honor.

Although Julius Caesar has had great success on the battlefield in quelling the revolt at Pompeii, his decisions become increasingly tyrannical and controversial as his power grows. At this point, some of those closest to him begin to question whether he is the right person and his leadership drifts towards becoming a dictator.

Actually the main character of the play is Brutus and his excessive ambition that leads him to perform acts that contradict honor or friendship.

"FLAVIUS: Hence! home, you idle creatures, get you home.
Is this a holiday? What, know you not,
Being mechanical, you ought not walk
Upon a labouring day without the sign
Of your profession? Speak, what trade art thou?
CARPENTER: Why, sir, a carpenter.
MARULLUS: Where is thy leather apron and thy rule?
What dost thou with thy best apparel on?
You, sir, what trade are you?"
