Julius Caesar is among the best of Shakespeare's historical and political plays, composed in 1599. The story is about the power struggle that occurs after the assassination of Julius Caesar, and it takes its readers through the course of the rebels' defeat in the Battle of Philippi. The book is set in the Roman Empire in 44 bc and paints a picture of the struggle for power that was prominent during the phase. The story begins when Brutus, a close ally and friend of Julius Caesar's, is enticed by the conspirators who plot the murder of Caesar under the guise of working for the interest of the republic. The book then depicts the manner in which Caesar ignores the warning from his astrologer about the impending danger to his life. When Caesar is assassinated after Brutus delivers the final blow, the rebels attempt to win public support for their deeds, which Mark Antony, another Caesar faithful, works against, with the help of a rousing. Through events surrounding his death, the themes of frustrated ambition and crude demagoguery are picked up and brilliantly handled. It is interesting to see how Caesar's personality dominates the play.

‘Julius Caesar’ van Matthew Dennison is een short read over één van de eerste twaalf keizers van Rome. Matthew Dennison schreef ‘De twaalf Caesars’ in navolging van de beroemde Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, die in het begin van de tweede eeuw de levens van twaalf keizers beschreef: van Julius Caesar tot en met Domitianus, oftewel van 100 voor tot 96 na Christus. Zijn smakelijke anekdotes en pikante details maakten het boek in de middeleeuwen bijzonder populair. Dennison doet het nog eens dunnetjes over en verrijkt zijn hommage aan Suetonius’ beroemde portretten - in het Nederlands telkens verschenen onder de titel ‘Keizers van Rome’ - met andere bronnen uit die tijd en inzichten uit het heden.

Julius Caesar is one of the most famous figures in ancient Rome. He was born into a turbulent era, when different factions were trying to control the government. He survived and began a steady rise in importance. He became a very successful military commander who added more than 200,000 square miles to the territories under Rome's control. But his triumphs created powerful enemies in Rome. They wanted to strip him of his power. He defeated those enemies in a civil war that made him even more powerful. He had a famous love relationship with Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt. When it seemed that nothing could hold him back, he was assassinated in the Roman Senate. One of his most notable accomplishments still affects people today. He reformed the calendar and established the length of a year at its present 365 days, with a leap year every four years. The month of July is named after him.

'Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war, That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With carrion men, groaning for burial' Fearful that Caesar will become a tyrant, his friends plot to assassinate him in order to save Rome. But the conspirators' high principles clash with personal malice and ambition, and as they vie to manipulate the mob, the nation is plunged into bloody civil war. A taut, profound drama exploring power and betrayal, Julius Caesarexposes the chasm between public appearance, political rhetoric and bitter reality. 'If we wish to know the force of human genius we should read Shakespeare.'
