Julius Caesar - Penguin


When it seems that Julius Caesar may assume supreme power, a plot to destroy him is hatched by those determined to preserve the threatened republic.  But the different motives of the conspirators soon become apparent when high principles clash with malice and political realism.  As the nation plunges into bloody civil war, this taut drama explores the violent consequences of betrayal and murder.


This book includes a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and the Elizabethan theatre, a separate introduction to Julius Caesar, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, an essay discussing performance options on both stage and screen, and a commentary.


Paperback edition. 200 pages.
