Publisher's Summary

The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection, brings Julius Caesar to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.

Shakespeare may have written Julius Caesar as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe in 1599. For it he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar's death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare's play keeps this debate alive.

This new, unabridged audio recording of the well-respected edition of Shakespeare's classic--expertly produced by the Folger Theatre--is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

good play, difficult to distinguish characters

aside from the diffulty making out specific characters and uncertainty in some scenes if it's public or private it's fine.

Reliving the past

I had learned Julius Ceaser in HS so the script was well known. To see the words come alive was an awesome experience. It was also a testament to my emotional maturing.

Well done indeed!

I can never get enough Caesar and of course Shakespeare nails it here. This play is from the time of Caesar returning from Gaul up to just a bit after his death. It's short but but quite full of fun. great cast. Worth the money.
