A wonderful introduction covering the many aspects of how and why Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has been staged through time; insight into Shakespeare's motives in writing the play set in context of the Elizabethan court and much more. The play itself is clearly set out with footnotes and further information at the back of the book. For study or purely personal interest it is well worth paying a bit extra for this publication.

Excellent introduction and notes plus relevant extracts from Plutarch's Lives and descriptions of the characters make this so much more than a copy of the text - a veritable study guide.

Ok, so you wouldn't exactly pass a history exam if you based your knowledge of Julius Caesar only on Shakespeare's play - he manipulates historical material and sources, so sometimes it seems as if days pass rather than years between the various historical events of the play; however, this is all done to achieve a brilliant dramatic effect, with countless paradoxes, ironies, juxtapositions, and contrasts. Shakespeare is the master of language in this play, from the arrogant, larger-than-life Caesar and the blood-drenched metaphors of murder to the emotional rhetoric of Mark Antony. And if you're worried about the dates, don't fear, the Arden Shakespeare contains a brilliant introduction which includes a discussion of how Shakespeare condensed historical material available to him and what the Renaissance view of Caesar was. The annotations are very helpful and plentiful, even if you're just starting Shakespare this would be the ideal play for an introduction to his language and dramatic techniques.

Library copy with a cover on. No markings except at the top of one page which we trimmed out. Arrived fairly quickly, great price. Absolutely no complaints.
