As an experienced high school English teacher, I always advise my students and their parents to purchase a Folger's edition of Shakespeare's plays. The notes, summaries, and other commentary serve the novice Shakespearean reader well and make the classical allusions and denotations of unfamiliar and common words and phrases from the Elizabethan age much easier for 21st Century readers to understand.

...this had to be one of the worst books/plays I have ever read. It was soooo dumb, and I think it dumb that Brutus killed himself for feeling guilty about murdering Caesar. He should have thought about the murder a little more throughly before doing it, then he wouldn't have to commit suicide about feeling guilty. All and all, don't waste your time on this book unless you're a Shakesphere nut, or absolutely positively HAVE TO read it for class!

    Another Book by Shakespeare

    Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare is the tragedy of Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus. This was Shakespeare's transition from history plays to his famous tragedies. Overall, it is just another Shakespeare book, difficult to understand, but having a nice story when looking back on it. Not awful, but not the best
