      Powerfully ambitious yet ruthlessly arrogant, Julius Caesar's leadership divides opinion. On the cusp of his complete control over the Roman Republic, his Senators hatch a plot to seize back power, leading to his brutal assassination. As his rivals rally, it becomes clear that civil unrest rather than peace will be his legacy, and Caesar's spirit lives on to haunt Brutus in the wake of the empire"Calphurnia: When beggars die there are no comets seen,The heavens themselves blaze forth the death o [...]

      SPOILER ALERT: Mark Antony is the only one who makes it out alive for a return role in the sequel "Antony and Cleopatra", although (another spoiler alert) he doesn't make it out of that one alive.

      I'm not a big fan of Campfire Graphics. They have some good ones, but mostly they feel flat and formulaic to me. Making a work in graphic novel form does not automatically increase its appeal.

      This book is complicated to understand, due to authors constant change of pace. Shakespeare uses many devices to develop different characters and to set a scenery. He uses pathos to get the reader to feel sympathy for the characters, he uses pathos when Mark Antony gives his speech. Overall Shakespeare uses many characters as spoils for others and that helps him move the story along smoother.

      Reading Shakespeare is fun!!! Even though I was reading it for university it felt amazing, it defiantly didn't feel like I was forced to read something I don't like.I really enjoyed highlighting quotes from the play, now I can quote Shakespeare and be total nerd.

      I love history and therefore found it interesting to read this play written about the Ides of March. I love how Shakespeare brought the characters to life through description and strong personalities. I recommend this play is read and acted out.

      A serviceable introduction or review of the play. Really too short to support the flavor of the language or the complexity of the story.

    • Danielle says:

      It's a really good play but as usual Shakespear's writing was hard for me to understand.

      There's a reason way this play is a classic. Riveting! I hope to see this live some day!
