Product Description

Publisher: Bantam Classics   Publication Year: 1988   First Edition: No

Book Type: Used   Format: Paperback   Condition: Good

In this striking tragedy of political conflict, Shakespeare turns to the ancient Roman world and to the famous assassination of Julius Caesar by his republican opponents. The play is one of tumultuous rivalry, of prophetic warnings–“Beware the ides of March”–and of moving public oratory, “Friends, Romans, countrymen!” Ironies abound and most of all for Brutus, whose fate it is to learn that his idealistic motives for joining the conspiracy against a would-be dictator are not enough to sustain the movement once Caesar is dead.

Edition Includes: • Vivid, readable introduction by noted scholar David Bevington • A lively personal forword by Joseph Papp • An insightful essay on the play in performance • Comprehensive explanatory notes conveniently placed at the bottom of each page of text • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, annotated bibliographies • A listing of famous lines and phrases

DAVID BEVINGTON, internationally renowned Shakespeare scholar, is Phyllis Fay Horton Professor of Humanities at the Universiy of Chicago and editor of Scott, Foresman's 'The Complete Works of Shakespeare'.

JOSEPH PAPP, one of the most important forces in theater today, is the founder and producer of the New York Shakespeare Festival, America's largest and most prolific theatrical institution. He has produced or dircted all but one of Shakespeare's plays.
