Believed to be written in 1599, William Shakespeares "Julius Caesar" is one of several plays that the bard would write that were based upon Roman history. Closely based on actual events as chronicled in Plutarchs "Lives," it is the story of the tragic downfall of Julius Caesar and of those who conspired against him. The play begins with the celebration of Caesars return from defeating Pompeys sons at the battle of Munda. When it is learned that Julius Caesar has been offered the crown of Rome by Mark Antony three times, and that each time he has refused it, it is believed that it is only a matter of time before he is to become King and thus dictator of Rome. Roman Senator Cassius is concerned about what such a coronation might mean for the people of Rome and begins to persuade fellow politician Brutus, who is also Caesars close friend, that they must prevent Caesar from gaining such power by assassinating him. A gripping historical drama "Julius Caesar" contains some of Shakespeares most memorable lines and is ranked as one of the playwrights finest works. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, is annotated by Henry N. Hudson, and includes an introduction by Charles Harold Herford.
