Item Details

Random House, Inc.
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

I like the No Fear Shakespeare series, if not for them I doubt I would be reading Shakespeare at all. Julius Caesar is a great play and as near to history as is possible. This is my favourite Shakespearian play by far, though I still have many to read. You really sympathize with the characters and it helps you to understand why they acted the way they did.

I returned the book at September
with the other books I borrowed 3 months ago.
I looked everywhere(school ,house) just in case I forgot to return it and it is not here .

This is the 51st of a series of titles selected by writer Yann Martel to provide to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, to encourage an appreciation of the arts and literature in particular in the PM, and to also help him with his stillness and thoughtfulness. Martel has regularly sent books from a wide range of literary traditions to Harper, and has devoted a Web site to the book list and his kind and considered covering letters with each volume.

Would the political machinations and dissembling depicted in this classic appeal to Mr. Harper?
