In scene act 3
scene 3 Cinna the poet gets killed by an angry mob. He is killed because a
conspiretor by the name of Cinna has the same name as the poet. Even after
telling the mob that he is Cinna the Poet they say “kill him his name is Cinna.
We chose this scene because it is a very ironic scene. Its ironic because even
after the mob finds out that his name is Cinna the poet they kill him just
because his name is Cinna.
act 3 scene 3 I am the first citizen. He, along with the rest of the mob, seem
anxious to convict Cinna of being the conspiritor. First citizen seem to be
filled with anxiety because he feels that every person named Cinna needs to be
killed because there once was a conspiritor named Cinna. He also seems to be
the leader of the mob. He’s the one who engages the conversation between Cinna
and is the one who suggests to kill him. He also has anger problems. When he
went up to Cinna he wanted to kill him the second saw him just because they
thought he was a conspiritor. Through being anxious, angry, and wanting to kill
someone, first citizen participated in killing Cinna the poet.
