Julius Caesar vs. Mean girls
MDCHS PRESS
Written by: Jesus Lopez
The differences in the stories comes from the difference in themes. Julius Caesar is a serious play with Honor and a historically backed betrayal of one of the grates Roman rulers. On the other hand, Mean Girls talks about betrayal at a smaller scale and relationships with other classmates.
Themes
Betrayal
Betrayal is a major theme in both stories in mean girls the consequences are less severe because of girl’s lack of power.
Cady the protagonist of the story un-justifies the betrayal of Regina “Calling somebody else fat won't make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn't make you any smarter. And ruining Regina George's life definitely didn't make me any happier. All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you.” putting people down does not bring you up.
Brutus justifies the betrayal of of Julius Caesar by saying if its better for rome he would endure the consequences.
"I would not, Cassius; yet I love him well. But wherefore do you hold me here so long? What is it that you would impart to me? If it be aught toward the general good."
Honor and Relationships
"Set honour in one eye and death i' the other, And I will look on both indifferently, For let the gods so speed me as I love The name of honour more than I fear death."
Brutus loves his country so much that he is willing to die and get Caesar out of power than live and see him reign another day.
