3. This scene is often referred to as a scene providing comic relief. Why do you think Shakespeare included this here?

The comic relief surrounds Cinna the poet being mistaken for one of the conspirators of the same name. When Cinna convinces them he is not a conspirator, the mob vows to kill him for his bad poetry. This scene adds some dark comedy as relief before Caesar comes to the Capitol and the impending assassination.
