Julius Caesar (Wordsworth Classics)
This book is edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, research Professor of English, University of Sussex. "Julius Caesar" is among the best of Shakespeare's historical and political plays. Dealing with events surrounding the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C., the drama vividly illustrates the ways in which power and corruption are linked. The cry 'Peace, freedom and liberty!' is used to exculpate brutal realities, while personal ambitions taint public actions.
