Best Answer

it is from "Julius Caesar", a play by Shakespeare

it is the beginning of a famous monologue, which comes before another, even more famous monologue

Marc Antony gives this monologue to Caesar's body

it means that he is sorry that he is simply talking to the conspirators who killed Ceasar.

He was Caesar's right hand man, a general of the roman army, and rumored to have been Caesar's lover. The speech he gives following this turns the crowd to his side. You probably have heard the beginning of this one too, it starts off: FRIENDS, ROMANS, Countrymen, lend me your ears!

anyway so that's what it means

he is sorry that he is not immediately avenging Caesar, and that he is merely talking to them immediately after killing Caesar.

Is Antony honest when he speaks to the conspirators?

No, he wanted to gain the trust of the conspirators just to be able to give his speech in Caesar's Funeral. In his soliloquy right after the conspirators tell us so. "Oh, pardon me thou bleeding piece of earth, that I am meek and gentle with these Butchers!" He obviously meant the opposite when he said he loved the conspirators.

Even in Act 1 Scene 2 we find that Antony is Caesar's acolyte, his student. And Antony hero-wroships him. His remark "O pardon me thou bleeding piece of earth" is a sincere expression of love.

What are the lyrics to Pardon Me by Incubus?

Pardon me while I burst... A decade ago, I never thought I would be, at twenty-three, on the verge of spontaneous combustion. -Woe-is-me.- But I guess that it comes with the territory, An ominous landscape of never-ending calamity. I need you to hear, I need you to see that I have had all I can take and exploding seems like an imminent possibility to me. So pardon me while I burst into flames. I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games. So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same! Not two days ago, I was having a look in a book and I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knee. I said, "I can relate," cause lately I've been thinking of combustication as a welcome vacation from the burdens of the planet Earth. like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D... but thinking so much differently. Pardon me while I burst into flames. I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games. So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same! Never be the same, yeah... Pardon me, while I burst into flames... Pardon me, pardon me, pardon me. So pardon me while I burst into flames. I've had enough of the world and its people's mindless games. So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame. Pardon me, pardon me... I'll never be the same! Never be the same, yeah!
