The first tragedy to be played in the new Globe Theatre, Julius Caesar is set at a crucial turning point in Roman history, as the Republican gives way to the imperial. Safely removed in time and place from Shakespeare's Elizabethan England, Rome makes the perfect laboratory for the playwright's free-ranging political analysis. -- Publisher.

I like this book! We had to read it for school, and the "No Fear" part made it much easier to read. If you want to start reading Shakespeare, I would suggest No Fear.

Julius Caesar is in my personal opinion Shakespeare's greatest work. Besides the fact that the play gave us timeless quotes that appear in our world today, but it also gave the readers an opportunity to see the power of change and keeping of past traditions. The two main characters envision a Rome which they believe to be perfect. Unfortunately for them, they are too blind to see that their perfect republic can no longer exist, leading to a tragic death and civil war. The themes in this book are many. The story itself fascinates readers even today. If you don't like Shakespeare, I implore you to read just this one play of his. The story is too important for you to miss out on.

I like the No Fear Shakespeare series, if not for them I doubt I would be reading Shakespeare at all. Julius Caesar is a great play and as near to history as is possible. This is my favourite Shakespearian play by far, though I still have many to read. You really sympathize with the characters and it helps you to understand why they acted the way they did.
