Overview
Shakespeare may have written "Julius Caesar" as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare s play keeps this debate alive.
