Synopses & Reviews
The most famous of Shakespeare's Roman tragedies, Julius Caesar was written and first performed in 1599, and was apparently one the plays his contemporaries enjoyed most. Recounting the death of Caesar on the steps of the Senate house, the play offers some of Shakespeare's finest scenes: Antony's skillful speech at Caesar's funeral, and the quarrel and reconciliation between Brutus and Cassius with the news of Portia's death. This edition includes a fresh consideration of the play's date and its place in the Shakespeare canon and examines how Shakespeare reshaped his sources (primarily North's translation of Plutarch's Lives).
"[An] excellent edition."--Linda Anderson, Virginia Tech
Featuring one of Shakespeare's most complex histories, this revised and repackaged edition includes an updated bibliography, suggested references, stage and film history of the play, and an overview of Shakespeare's life. Young Adult.
