In Julius Caesar, there are no heroes, only heroic words spoken by men of ambition, arrogance, and jealousy. Yet Julius Caesar is also one of Shakespeare's most popular and polished works, a seamless blend of highly-stylized oratory and penetrating soliloquies that lays bare the innermost workings of the human mind. Here is Shakespeare in his prime, taking the story of history's most notorious assassination and fashioning from it a brilliant and at times chilling indictment of politics by violence and of how even the strongest and noblest of minds can be corrupted by flattery and the lure of power.

    " Much of my Shakes reading this year was on a Kindle edition with no footnotes. Best I could do in darkest Europe. "

    " Tragic, as is most of Shakespeare's works. I liked this a bit less than Othello. Beware of the Ides of March. "

    " Got a lot more out of it this time, with related critical readings & commentaries. I can now see how the perspective of good v bad guys is very subject to change by social & political mileu. Also more appreciative of 'current' political changes' significance, and of the work Shakespeare did to make his Elizabethan world more Roman. "

    " Technically, I should class this as "drama" instead of fiction--read when I felt I needed some Shakespeare in my life, and I wanted to see where some of the famous quotes appeared (eids of March, etc.). Enjoyed, but didn't feel it was as tragic as some of his other tragedies (although granted, trying to curb power lust by murdering Caesar backfired in a big way). "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
