    Making Shakespeare Accessible Earlier

    Julius Caesar, is, in my own opinion, easily one of Shakespeare's top 3 plays. It presents the confusing figure of Caesar - tyrant or tragic hero? - opposite that of Brutus: 'The Noblest Roman of them all'. The scheming, conniving Cassius and Antony are perfectly placed vis-a-vis to undermine these two leading, tragic heroes. The fantastic speeches in this are among the best in English - which is good, because they are meant to be. The fate of the world hangs on who wins Rome, and Rome is won by these speeches. The eulogies of Brutus and Antony are particularly excellent, as is Caesar's final, sublime line: 'Et tu, Brute? Then fall, Caesar!' The true tragedy of ambition and of good intentions comes across brilliantly. Now, this monumental classic is available to readers of an earlier age who would not be able to wade through the Bard's Elizabethan iambic pentameter.

    This is a great book for you if you like Tragedy, Action, and Adventure! It's full of amazing poetic dialog and action filled sences, It also has many Unexpected happenings and secret plots of the conspirators. The book format is great for all types of readers as well. The full Original text is layed out side by side with the full modern version, making it easy for a student to study with and also good for reading and easy understanding. If your reading Shakespeare for the first time, I defenatly recommend this book! Buy it!!
