General Description

Ambition, irony, loyalty, and betrayal team together as Shakespeare imagines the story of Julius Caesar for all to see (or read). With famous characters, between famous lines, readers find themselves wrestling with questions of “what if,” questions of safety, intention, friendship, morality. In Julius Caesar, Shakespeare shows the power and responsibility of great rhetoric, and the consequences of being swept away from reason.
