Overview

Julius Caesar tells the story of Caesar and his death at the hands of those he considered friends. It is one of the most famous of William Shakespeare's plays. Caesar is offered the crown three times and refuses it every time. But there are those among him that fear him becoming king. They persuade Brutus, a loyal and just Roman, that Caesar is selfish and pull him into their plot to kill Caesar. They plan to kill Antony, Caesar's true friend, but Brutus will not allow it. When Caesar is murdered, Antony carries his body and persuades the crowd to turn against the conspirators, forcing them to leave Rome behind. However, leaving Rome will not save them from what fate has in store. This graphic novel is an amazing read. The illustrations beautifully capture what Shakespeare portrays and bring Julius Caesar to life. Bowen does a fabulous job of retelling this classic. What a great way of bringing Shakespeare to today's youth. At the end of the story there are sections that share the history of Shakespeare, the play and even interpret some of the famous lines into modern language. Readers are sure to love this beautiful depiction of Shakespeare's work. Reviewer: Deborah Helton
