A play of paradoxes, where personal virtue pairs with political naivety; where tyranny's certainties contrast with bloody civil war; where assassination is charged with love for the victim. No one is fully virtuous or evil, and noble aims misfire into the mire of treachery.
Key characters: Brutus, Julius Caesar, Marc Antony — Mike Hare

Description


The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is a history play and tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599. It is one of several plays written by Shakespeare based on true events from Roman history, which also include Coriolanus and Antony and Cleopatra.Although the play is named Julius Caesar, Brutus speaks more than four times as many lines as the title character; and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus' struggle between the conflicting demands of honour, patriotism, and friendship.
