Pupils will be able to prepare for the Key Stage 3 tests using this series of Shakespearean texts. The design shows scripts as performance texts, motivating pupils' interest with illustrations and photographs of the productions. Pupils will be provided with tasks to aid understanding and extended study through questions integrated throughout the text, and GCSE coursework activities. The text is more accessible due to the fact that text and notes are laid out in a larger format than other editions. Understanding of the plot development and themes is enhanced by a running commentary at the beginning of each scene.

Professor Spevack's critical discussion shows how private desires and public affairs are inextricable in Julius Caesar and how Shakespeare frames the world of this play - person, action, place, time - within the operations of larger forces, mysterious, ironical, and undeniable.From the Publisher:
In this striking tragedy of political conflict, Shakespeare turns to the ancient Roman world and to the famous assassination of Julius Caesar by his republican opponents. The play is one of tumultuous rivalry, of prophetic warnings--"Beware the ides of March"--and of moving public oratory "Friends, Romans, countrymen!" Ironies abound and most of all for Brutus, whose fate it is to learn that his idealistic motives for joining the conspiracy against a would-be dictator are not enough to sustain the movement once Caesar is dead.
