    Experience Julius Caesar as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world.

    Laura Quave says: "Excellent young scholar's intro to Shakespeare"

    Overall

    We used this unabridged audio Julius Caesar to introduce our daughter to Shakespeare as a high school freshman. She rather enjoyed the play, had good comprehension of the plot, and agreed that the integrated annotations helped her. I had initially feared that the constant interruptions for annotation would be distracting, and that the additional listening time that they required would be discouraging, but this was not the case at all. The notes provided just enough of a guide to the action (I especially appreciated how it illuminated Mark Antony's crowd manipulation) without getting the listener bogged down unnecessarily with rabbit trails.
