Whether for High School drama class or actor's study, Arden is always the first one to look at when preparing for a role. The Folio and modern spellings are listed with their meanings and the Bard's source material is often shown, in this case, Plutarch. I will recommend Arden for any play to research.

The play is one of the only plays by Shakespeare to have a name that is not the same as the tragic hero (Brutus). A tragic hero has a rise and a fall during the play, and Shakespeare acknowledges that Brutus is the hero at the end of the play.

I was very happy to find that the sample includes the whole play, but excluded part of the mini Shakesphere biography in the appendicies. This edition itself is very good, but does not have the numbers which tell you which verse you are on.
