Corruption

JLSCSR-HPL5YJ

Which of the following quotes best displays the theme of corruption?

A

What, shall one of us,
That struck the foremost man of all this world
But for supporting robbers, shall we now
Contaminate our fingers with base bribes, (4.3.21-24)
…I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon,
Than such a Roman. (4.3.27-28)

B

That you have wronged me doth appear in this:
You have condemned and noted Lucius Pella
For taking bribes (4.3.1-3)

C

I am a soldier, I,
Older in practice, abler than yourself
To make conditions. (4.3.30-32)

D

From the hard hands of peasants their vile trash
By any indirection. I did send
To you for gold to pay my legions,
Which you denied me. (4.3.78-81)

E

There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats;
For I am armed so strong in honesty
That they pass by me as the idle wind (4.3.70-72)
