Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"But, for my own part, it was Greek to me."

Now you can appreciate Julius Caesar in plain English. Political intrigue. Ambition. Envy. Conspiracy. Hypocrisy. Betrayal. Assassination. Pride. Suicide. The Ides of March. The tides of war. Julius Caesar makes today's political scene seem boring! If the original text seems Greek (or geek) to you, now you can read and enjoy it in a modern translation that's easy to understand. Special aids make following the action and grasping the meaning a snap:

  • A brief synopsis of the plot and action
  • A comprehensive character list that describes the characteristics, motivations, and actions of each major player
  • A visual character map that shows the relationships of major characters
  • A cycle-of-death graphic that pinpoints the sequence of deaths and includes who dies, how they die, and why
  • Reflective questions that help you understand the themes of the play

Shakespeare on the Double! Julius Caesar helps you appreciate this play and the sad, oft-quoted question, "Et tu, Brute?"
