Synopsis

Julius Caesar by Beverley Birch, William Shakespeare

This atmospheric retelling of the powerful and action-packed tale of the great Roman dictator, the plot to assasinate him and the bloody struggle for power that ensued, captures the heightened emotion of Shakespeare's classic of English literature. Echoing the language of the original it makes an ideal introduction to the play for all readers new to Shakespeare. Newly illustrated with striking black-and-white illustrations, this retelling was previously published in the collections SHAKESPEARE'S STORIES: TRAGEDIES (UK sales of 10,000 copies) and SHAKESPEARE'S STORIES (UK sales of 35,000).
