Format: Paperback
The themes that Shakespeare dealt with are universal. Yet, the biggest complaint that many people have when reading or discussing Shakespeare is the language: "People don't talk like that.", "Why don't they speak in English?", "I can't understand a word of what they just said." are just a sampling of complaints I've heard when attempting to teach Shakespeare to high school students. I try everything I can think of to get over the language issue, but very little seems to help (comments such as "You do know that the way people talk in movies usually isn't the same way people talk in real life, either, don't you?" seem incomprehensible to students). That's why I'm thankful when books such as SHAKESPEARE'S JULIUS CAESAR: THE MAGNA EDITION come around; it provides another avenue to use in trying to get students connected with the themes of the play and not worry about the language.

SHAKESPEARE'S JULIUS CAESAR takes Shakespeare's famous play and puts it into graphic novel form (even though subtitled "The Magna Edition" the book isn't a true magna because magna reads from the back of the book to the front). Some minor scenes have been cut out, but Shakespeare's language remains. The result is an engaging and accessible graphic novel that young people and more visually oriented people might be able to relate to and understand better than just reading the play directly from the text.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this with the other titles ("Hamlet," "Macbeth," and "Romeo & Juliet" to help my remedial English students (which included a bunch of ESLL students) to understand Shakespeare. I liked that the actual text was included with the manga style; however, some scenes are not included, and a cast of characters would've been nice to have, especially for students who are unfamiliar with the play in the first place. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase. Oh, and my students all left remedial English with a clear understanding of Shakespeare's tragedies. :)
