ACT II – Scene.iv
Brutus has not had the opportunity to tell Portia
regarding the plan to assassinate Caesar, but she suggests to Lucius that she is aware of the plan.
A soothsayer enters on his way to see Caesar and Portia enquires if he knows
of any plans to harm Caesar. He responds that he fears that something may happen to Caesar.
Portia sends Lucius to give her greetings to Brutus and to tell him that she
is in good spirits.
Portia suspects that there is something amiss, but she does not know the details of
Brutus’ plan. She fears for Caesar’s safety and also that her husband may be discovered.
