Julius Caesar's exciting plot, brilliant rhetoric, and searching characterisation have made it one of Shakespeare's most popular plays with both readers and theatre-goers. Introducing this thoroughly reconsidered edition, Arthur Humphreys provides a fresh look at the play's date and its place in the Shakespeare canon and examines Shakespeare's transmutation of history into drama. He investigates the play's ethical and moral concerns in a section on Roman values andanalyses its fortunes in performance, from its immediately successful first staging to modern productions for cinema, television, and stage.

Hard to find fault with this play. Interest-catching, tragic, morally challenging. Great read.
