The chapter, “A Touch Too Cerebral: Eulogizing Caesar in Rome,” by Angeline C. Chiu, analyzes the writers’ creative decision to undermine audience expectations in episode 13 of the series Rome. The chapter shows how the writers did this by not directly depicting the iconic public speeches of Brutus and Mark Antony over the fallen Julius Caesar, as delivered in the drama of Shakespeare, but rather by staging a series of scenes that emphasize the power of literary reception, interpretation, and dramatic re-enactment.

Keywords:   Rome, Julius Caesar, Brutus, Mark Antony, Shakespeare
