Julius Caesar

by

'Invigorating, radical and original ! I look forward to using it at my desk and perhaps in my classroom over many years, enjoying Jonathan Bate's perceptive comments, trusting Eric Rasmussen's textual scholarship.' -- Professor Peter Holland, Times Literary Supplement From the Royal Shakespeare Company -- a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's drama of the conflict between one man's ambition and the good of the state. THIS EDITION INCLUDES: * An illuminating introduction to Julius Caesar by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate * The play - with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page * A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play * An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre * A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of Julius Caesar in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with three leading directors - Lucy Bailey, David Farr and Edward Hall - so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death. Ideal for students, theatre-goers, actors and general readers, the RSC Shakespeare plays offer an accessible and contemporary approach to reading and rediscovering Shakespeare's works for the twenty-first century.
