Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar

  

by William Shakespeare

Cinna (the Conspirator)

Character Analysis

We first meet Cinna in Act 1, Scene 3, where he schemes with Cassius about how to get Brutus to join the conspiracy against Caesar. He's also assigned the task of planting some phony documents in Brutus's room. Cinna the conspirator shouldn't be confused with Cinna the poet.
