Battle of Philippi - Popular Culture

Popular Culture

The battle figures in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (background of the story in Acts 4 and 5), and a fictionalised account of the battle is depicted in the sixth episode of the second season of the HBO television series Rome (there is but a single battle and both Cassius and Brutus fall in battle instead of being suicides, though Brutus' death is a lone, suicidal attack on the triumvirs' advancing forces).

Famous quotes containing the words popular culture, culture and/or popular:

    Popular culture is seductive; high culture is imperious.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    When a culture feels that its end has come, it sends for a priest.
    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)

    Both gossip and joking are intrinsically valuable activities. Both are essentially social activities that strengthen interpersonal bonds—we do not tell jokes and gossip to ourselves. As popular activities that evade social restrictions, they often refer to topics that are inaccessible to serious public discussion. Gossip and joking often appear together: when we gossip we usually tell jokes and when we are joking we often gossip as well.
    Aaron Ben-Ze’Ev, Israeli philosopher. “The Vindication of Gossip,” Good Gossip, University Press of Kansas (1994)
