1.       One thing I did well in this seminar was I gave a conversational moving question. My question was; if you were Shakespeare and you writing Julius Caesar what would of you have done to change how he wrote it. My answer to this question is that I would change the ending. I didnít like how Shakespeare ended the play for several reasons. One, I didnít like that all the characters killed themselves.Also, the way that all the conspirators killed themselves was unrealistic. All of them gave a small dramatic speech before they died. So what would of I have done to change it, I would instead of all the conspirators committing suicide I would only make Brutus commit suicide because actually that really happened in history. As for the others I would of made them die in action.

2.       If I could go back a couple of days I would have changed my preparation.In the seminar there was very little reference to the text which I think that was so because there was too much text it was hard to find the evidence quickly. I wish I marked some pages in which I thought would be good pieces of evidence to use.

3.       ††††One connection that Michael said really struck me and I think a lot of other people too. ďIts kind of all Cassiusís slaveís fault that Cassius killed himself because he the one that said that Titinius died.Ē This struck me because it totally true and Iím surprised I didnít realize that till he said that.

4.       I learned from reading Shakespeareís writing to make all my characters have very different personalities. I found in my writing all my characters have similar personalities and in Shakespeareís writing itís crazy how different all the characters are. I think thatís really good if you want key if you want your writing seem real.†††††
