Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar Act 2, scene 3 Summary & Analysis

Read our modern English translation of this scene.
Artemidorus reads a letter he's written warning Caesar against each of the conspirators. He plans to stand by the Capitol and hand it to Caesar when he passes, adding that if the letter does not reach Caesar in time, then the fates support the conspirators.
It's not clear how Artemidorus found out about the plot, but his willingness to let "the fates" decide whether Caesar gets his warning indicates that he's somewhat ambivalent about Caesar.
