Julius Caesar : A Tragedy
by William Shakespeare




Overview -

Out of fear that Caesar might overthrow the Roman Senate and rule by tyranny, Brutus, convinced by Cassius, kills Caesar in the Senate. Acting for the republic, the conspirators do not flee, but defend their actions and Rome remains on their side—until Mark Antony speaks and rouses the crowd against the conspirators. A revered favourite of scholars and dramatists alike, Julius Caesar remains one of Shakespeare's most popular plays.

Known as "The Bard of Avon," William Shakespeare is arguably the greatest English-language writer known. Enormously popular during his life, Shakespeare's works continue to resonate more than three centuries after his death, as has his influence on theatre and literature. Shakespeare's innovative use of character, language, and experimentation with romance as tragedy served as a foundation for later playwrights and dramatists, and some of his most famous lines of dialogue have become part of everyday speech.
