Publisher's Summary

In Julius Caesar, there are no heroes, only heroic words spoken by men of ambition, arrogance, and jealousy. Yet Julius Caesar is also one of Shakespeare's most popular and polished works, a seamless blend of highly-stylized oratory and penetrating soliloquies that lays bare the innermost workings of the human mind. Here is Shakespeare in his prime, taking the story of history's most notorious assassination and fashioning from it a brilliant and at times chilling indictment of politics by violence and of how even the strongest and noblest of minds can be corrupted by flattery and the lure of power.
©1964, 1996 HarperCollinsPublishers

Sterling cast

A wonderful production of Shakespeare's profoundly moving and profoundly political play. Anthony Quayle provides a solid philosophical anchor as Brutus and Ralph Richardson is appropriately august as Caesar. If you recall this play tepidly from High School, listen to it again. It is thrilling drama, moves like lightning, and Marc Antony's funeral oration -- cleverly performed here -- is every bit as great as its reputation would insist. The political in-fighting and propaganda of the play are very familiar and sophisticated and -- going in to an election year -- should be required listening or reading.
