About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—their older daughter, Susanna, and the twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent, not in Stratford, but in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He had a successful career in London as a playwright and actor and was a shareholder in the acting company the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. He produced most of his plays between 1589 and 1613. Sometime between 1610 and 1613, Shakespeare is thought to have retired from the stage and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete November 5, 2012
By Agiozac
Format:Kindle Edition
It's missing the last few pages from the final scene. If you don't need that part, it's ok. if you need the full text, it's not.

As one of the reviewer points out, this book is not complete. Most of the Act 5 Scene 5 is missing! I may have checked that review before I purchase this e-book. I learned that paper book is better because you know where you are now. Kindle edition does not have a line number for each scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go, go, good countrymen... January 6, 2011
Format:Paperback
Gaius Julius Cæsar is the Caesar we think of when we hear the word "Caesar" -- he conquered Gaul, bedded Cleopatra, and died a pretty dramatic death. And while he only appears in a few scenes of "Julius Caesar," he's the nucleus that William Shakespeare's taut conspiracy play revolves around -- his murder, his legacy, and the bitter jealousy he inspired.

Julius Caesar is returning to Rome in triumph, only to be stopped by a strange old soothsayer who warns him, "Beware the ides of March." Caesar brushes off the warning, but he has no idea that a conspiracy is brewing under his nose. In a nutshell, a group of senators led by the creepy Cassius are plotting against Caesar because of his wild popularity, suspecting that he wants to become KING.

And Cassius' latest target: Brutus, one of Caesar's best buddies. Brutus is slowly swayed over to the conspiracy's side, beginning to believe that Caesar as a great man corrupted by power. Everything comes to a a devastating assassination on... guess when... the ides of March, which will elevate some men to greatness and destroy others.

Though the story is supposedly about Julius Caesar, Caesar himself only has a few scenes -- but his charismatic, dominating presence hangs over the play like a heavy tapestry. What he does, what he plans, what he thinks and who he is are constantly on people's minds, and even after his death he is a powerful presence in the memories of the living.

And Shakespeare cooks up a dialogue-heavy play that is a bit on the slow side, but whose speeches are so powerful and intense that you don't quite notice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review March 31, 2014
By Jack
Format:Paperback
The tragedy that is Julius Caesar follows more than a story of politics and bloodshed, a theme quite often seen especially in Shakespearean plays, it explores themes of betrayal and conspiracy that happen more than often in literature and in real life. But this play makes a deep impression on our emotions as Caesar’s most trusted associate is seduced by the thought of power. Philosopher Thomas Hobbes said, “All men are inherently evil”, and on account of this story and the like, this quote could not be closer to the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare at his best January 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a lt of the Shakespeare comedies you sometimes get the feeling that he was writing with a crayon. Get it on paper, get it staged, cash the check.

Sometimes, however, he writes in ink. Julius Caesar is one of those times. If you the best of his efforts, Caesar is at the top. A great joy to sit and read the lines in a theater cadence,

An exceptional plot in a way that only William Shakespear can deliver. One of Shakespear's best and a precursor of modern day political assassination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Julius Caesar July 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the first thing I've read by William Shakespeare and it was great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Shakespeare.
This story begins with Rome celebrating Julius Caesar's victory over Pompey's sons and ends with Marcus Brutus dead.
But the story is told differently than you'd expect, it shows it from the perspective of Marcus Brutus's point of view and the struggles he faces between his duty to Caesar and his duty to his country.
