The presence of omens and prophecies in Julius Caesar lends an air of the supernatural to the cold political machinery of Rome. From the Soothsayer's warning, to the storm, to the birds that presage Cassius's defeat, major events in the play seem inevitable, as if decreed by the Gods. Then again, things may not be as fixed as they seem—does knowing that the next day is the ides of March help make up Brutus's mind? And Cassius bases his suicide on a mistake—the bad omen was not accurate until he made it so by killing himself.
