Julius Caesar by Antony Kamm Summary

This is a fresh account of Julius Caesar - the brilliant politician and intriguing figure who became sole ruler of the Roman Empire. Julius Caesar examines key figures such as Marius, Sulla, Cicero, Mark Antony, Gaius Octavius (emperor Augustus), Calpurnia and Cleopatra, as well as the unnamed warriors who fought for and against him, and politicians who supported and opposed him. Including new translations from classical sources, Antony Kamm sets Caesar’s life against the historical, political and social background of the times and addresses key issues: Did Caesar destroy the Republic? What was the legality of his position and the moral justifications of his actions How good a general was he? What was his relationship with Cleopatra? Why was he assassinated? What happened next? This is Caesar – the lavish spender, the military strategist, a considerable orator and historical writer, and probably the most influential figure of his time - in all his historical glory. Students of Rome and its figures will find this an enthralling, eye-opening addition to their course reading.

Julius Caesar and the Transformation of the Roman Republic by Tom Stevenson Summary

Julius Caesar and the Transformation of the Roman Republic provides an accessible introduction to Caesar’s life and public career. It outlines the main phases of his career with reference to prominent social and political concepts of the time. This approach helps to explain his aims, ideals, and motives as rooted in tradition, and demonstrates that Caesar’s rise to power owed much to broad historical processes of the late Republican period, a view that contrasts with the long-held idea that he sought to become Rome’s king from an early age. This is an essential undergraduate introduction to this fascinating figure, and to his role in the transformation of Rome from republic to empire.

Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare Summary

JULIUS CAESAR Though a staple in high school English classes, Julius Caesar is not a simple play. Seemingly irreconcilable forces are at work: fate and free will, the changeableness and stubbornness of ambitious men, the demands of public service and the desire for private gain. Drawn from history as recorded by Plutarch, the major characters—Caesar, Brutus, Cassius, and Mark Antony—are complex, as are the twists and turns of their fortunes. What kind of man rises to power? What price does he pay when he becomes a politician? These questions raised by Shakespeare are relevant in every age, whether ancient Rome, Elizabethan England, or even in our own day. ABOUT THE EDITOR Joseph Pearce is the author of many acclaimed biographies of major Christian literary figures. He is Writer in Residence and Associate Professor of Literature at Ave Maria University in Florida, editor-in-chief of Sapientia Press, as well as co-editor of the Saint Austin Review (or StAR), an international review of Christian culture, literature, and ideas. His two books on Shakespeare, The Quest for Shakespeare and Through Shakespeare’s Eyes, are published by Ignatius Press, and he has edited the Ignatius Critical Editions of The Merchant of Venice, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, and Romeo and Juliet. He has also written and hosted two television series on the life and works of Shakespeare for EWTN.

Julius Caesar by Jo McMurtry Summary

Perhaps more than any other single work, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has popularized the image of Brutus as a ruthless and cowardly traitor, Caesar as a noble ruler and sympathetic victim, and the Ides of March as a time of danger and duplicity. On the surface, the play is comparatively simple and straightforward, and thus it has frequently served to introduce generations of students to Shakespeare's works. But the play is deceptive in its superficial simplicity, and scholars continue to probe the murky depths of its timeless tale of conspiracy. Part of the "Greenwood Guides to Shakespeare" series, this reference book is a thorough companion to the play. Included are chapters on the play's textual history and available modern editions, the historical and cultural setting of Shakespeare's England, and the sources that Shakespeare probably utilized. The volume then analyzes Shakespeare's dramatic art, including his characters, language, and imagery. It then explores the various themes that figure prominently in the play and overviews a number of different critical approaches. Finally, it examines the drama's lengthy stage history, including recent film productions.

The End of the Ancient Republic by Jan H. Blits Summary

While recent criticism of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has stressed the corruption of both the common people and the Republic's enemies within the patrician class, this book argues that at the core of the play lies the less obvious but more important corruption of the regime's leading defenders, particularly Brutus.
