Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this striking tragedy of political conflict, Shakespeare turns to the ancient Roman world and to the famous assassination of Julius Caesar by his republican opponents. The play is one of tumultuous rivalry, of prophetic warnings-Beware the ides of March-and of moving public oratory, Friends, Romans, countrymen Ironies abound and most of all for Brutus, whose fate it is to learn that his idealistic motives for joining the conspiracy against a would-be dictator are not enough to sustain the movement once Caesar is dead.

Each Edition Includes:

- Comprehensive explanatory notes

- Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship

- Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English

- Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories

- An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

If you are either learning Afrikaans, or learning English as a second language (ESL) as a Afrikaans speaker, this book is for you. There are many editions of Julius Caesar. This one is worth the price if you would like to enrich your Afrikaans-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Each page is annotated with a mini-thesaurus of uncommon words highlighted in the text. Not only will you experience a great classic, but learn the richness of the English language with Afrikaans synonyms at the bottom of each page. You will not see a full translation of the English text, but rather a running bilingual thesaurus to maximize the readers exposure to the subtleties of both languages.
