      William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

Ready to go to the Senate?CAESAR: I dunno. My wife just had a dream about you and the rest of the senators washing their hands in my blood, so I think I'm going to call in sick today. DECIUS: Okay, I'll just tell the guys that you're a pussy who lets his wife tell him what to do. They'll understand. CAESAR: I'll get my coa [...]


    2. In the course of teaching high school sophomores for thirty years, I have read Julius Caesar more than thirty times, and I never grow tired of its richness of detail or the complexity of its characters. Almost every year, I end up asking myself the same simple question--"Whom do I like better? Cassius or Brutus?"--and almost every year my answer is different from what it was the year before. On one hand, we have Cassius, the selfish, manipulative conspirator who, after the assassination, shows h [...]


    3. “Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, It seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come.” Beware the Ides of March. Beware to those that have aspirations to rule. You may encounter many enemies. People who will thwart your plans. People quite possibly afraid of your genius. People suffering from delusions of grandeur. I always say keep an [...]



    4. The most powerful, famous man in Roman history, her greatest conqueror, loved by the adoring , poor population, of Rome, ( and Cleopatra, also) that has brought glory and prosperity, too, the army will follow anywhere he leads, certain victory and riches to the soldiers, the Senate has given numerous awards to him, Rome's enemies tremble at the name of the mighty Caesar, but of course nobody is loved by all, men are small, petty, and jealous, why should he be above them, (fearing he, becoming Ki [...]


    5. Book ReviewIn 1599, William Shakespeare published his famous tragic play, Julius Caesar. In this tragedy, he explores the effect of power and trust across many characters, those who have it and those who are hungry for it. Several memorable lines originate in this play, offering guidance on how to go about building a network of friends and an army of enemies. Most readers are familiar with the story of vengeance and betrayal when it comes to Julius Caeser, and this is the central theme in Shakes [...]


    6. “Et tu, Brute?”These lines have haunted audiences and readers for centuries, since The Bard first presented the play, believed to be in 1599, when Shakespeare would have been 35. Bringing to life scenes from Roman history, this tragedy, more than presenting a biography of the leader, instead forms a study in loyalty, honor, patriotism and friendship.“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him; The evil that men do lives after them, The good is [...]


    7. "But Brutus says he was ambitious;And Brutus is an honourable man…. "Oh yes! So very, very, honourable was our dear Brutus…To think these two were once friends.


    8. أيتها المؤامرة أتخجلين أن تبرزي جبهتك الربداء في غياهب الليل عند منبث عوامل السوء , وتفشي كل آفة منكرة وسوءة خبيثة؟ فليت شعري إذا طلع عليك النهار وسطع على عوراتك ضياؤه , أين تجدين من الغيران والكهوف ما يستطيع أن يخفي صورتك الشنعاء بظلمته , ويخبئ طلعتك النكراء في غيابته ؟ لا تب [...]


    9. The juxtaposition that Shakespeare brings forward in this historical play, which resembles a tragedy in textual tonality and structure, is the double-edged facets, the private and the public, that coexist in Julius Caesar, the quintessential dictator. The ruler’s weaknesses show unobstructed in his private life. Irascible, proud and vulnerable to superstition, the Caesar ignores the voice of fate represented by the Soothsayer that tries to warn him against the surges of unrest that pervade in [...]


    10. The Tragedie Of Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1599. It is one of several plays written by Shakespeare based on true events from Roman history, which also include Coriolanus and Antony and Cleopatra. Although the play is named Julius Caesar, Brutus speaks more than four times as many lines as the title character; and the central psychological drama of the play focuses on Brutus' struggle betwee [...]


    11. To celebrate William Shakespeare on his birthday in April, I'll be studying three of the Bard's plays which I've not yet seen. My Shakespeare plan is to locate a staging of the play, listening to and watching it on my Macbook while I follow along to as much as of the original text as is incorporated in the production. Later, I read the entire play in the modern English version. A good friend I've had since high school recommended this system to me and I think this has been a very good system for [...]


    12. “What a terrible era in which idiots govern the blind.” ― William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act 2, Scene 1Julius Caesar was one of my first Shakespeare loves. I remember in Jr High memorizing (and I still can remember most of it) Mark Anthony's eulogy to Caesar ("Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears" It was powerful and was an early indicator for me of language's potential energy. Within those lines there were several messages, foreshadowing, etc. It turned me onto both Shakesp [...]


    13. I once performed the whole of Mark Anthony's "Friends, Romans, Countrymen" speech on the steps outside the Great Hall in Trinity College, Cambridge, wearing a bedspread as a toga and with a bucket chained over my head. It's a long story. I think I still know the speech by heart.


    14. this review is rated M for MemesI really do love this play but I've been memeing about it for five hours straight at this point to cope w my Overly Large Yet Worth It Role so we'll talk about why I love this show and then we'll end with the long list of terrible memes(also why the FUCK did I give this four stars. it's a five goodnight I love this underrated play)WHY THIS PLAY IS FUCKING AWESOMEOkay, first of all, and no one else cares: it's pretty damn historically accurate as Shakespeare goes. [...]


    15. What is this play about? Is it about Julius Caesar, as the title says? Well, he is assassinated half way through the play and disappears (Act 3, scene 2). Granted, his ghost reappears later on, but it is not the ghost of the caliber of Mozart’s (and Lorenzo da Ponte’s) commanding Commendatore. JC’s ghost exists only in Brutus mind as his conscience. For even if Brutus thinks that it is the ghost’s revenge to “turn our swords toward our own stomachs”, the only time the ghost speaks is [...]


    16. "Cry havoc and release the dogs of war"The recent uproar over the Play in the Park version of the play. Huey Long, Margret Thatcher, Tony Blair, Barrack Obama, Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy (as Calpurnia) all had their moments in the play as Caesar without the uproar. I can see the make Rome/America great again, but I do not see Trump refusing the crown thrice or leaving 75 drachmas to every man or donating his private gardens and orchards. It's just a play.


    17. أَفَكُنــتُـم تُفَـضِّـلــون أَن يَعيشَ قَيْـــصَر , وَأن تَـموتُــوا جَمــيعاً عبيـــداً له , على أَن يَــمُـــوت قَيْصَـــــر , وأن تعيـــشُـوا جَميــعاً رِجَالــاً أَحــرارا ؟شكسبير , يا عم شكسبير .ماذا تفعل بي بالله عليك ؟ أنّى لكَ بهذه القدرة أن تكتب وتحلل وتشرح أكثر [...]


    18. What a terrible era in which idiots govern the blind.Here's the plot: a demagogue threatens democracy and his own allies in the Senate have to decide whether to remove him. So you can see why the Public Theater's minds went to recent events when they staged Julius Caesar in Central Park. Their version, set in modern times and featuring a familiar-looking Caesar, has made some headlines, and I won't lie: the murder scene was disturbing to watch. Art often tries to be dangerous, but it rarely succ [...]


    19. I could not say anything more beautiful in praise of Shakespeare as a human being than this: he believed in Brutus and did not cast one speck of suspicion upon this type of virtue.—Friedrich NietzscheOne of Shakespeare’s best, this play is also, I think, one of his most morally ambiguous. The central question of the play—was it right to have killed Caesar?—is left unresolved, principally because of the complexity of the protagonists.The play opens with Cassius persuading Brutus to act ag [...]



    20. - " فما بال قيصر يتجبر علينا إذن ؟ يا للمسكين ! إني موقن أنه ما كان ليصير ذئباً لولا أنه لا يرى الرومانيين إلا نعاجاً ، وما كان ليغدو ضرغاماً لو لم يكن الرومانيون وعولاً إن الذين يتعجلون إضرام النار إنما يبدءونها بضعيف القش ، فأية حثالة غدت روما حين تتيح لعامة الشعب أن يعمل لتأ [...]


    21. And for Mark Antony, think not of him;For he can do no more than Caesar's armWhen Caesar's head is off.Photos added bust of Brutus by MichelangeloWho, or what, is this play about? What does "about" mean?In some sense it must be about Julius Caesar. But is it about him as a man, a tyrant, a ruler? Or is it just "about" his assassination?Rather than address these questions, let's look at it this way. It seems clear to me that the character in a play that talks more than anyone else is the characte [...]


    22. واژه ى "قيصر" يا "سزار" بر خلاف تصوّر رايج، به معنى پادشاه نيست. بلكه صرفاً نام خانوادگى بزرگ ترين سلسله امپراتوران روم است كه هزار و چهارصد سال حكومت كردند، تا جايى كه نام خانوادگى شان در تصوّر مردم ما هم معنى "پادشاه" شد. روم تا قبل از خاندان قيصرها، به صورت جمهورى اداره مى شد. "ژ [...]


    23. A question of tyranny3 September 2014 I am surprised that it has taken me this long to actually get around to re-reading this play so as to write a commentary on it considering that it happens to be one of my favourite Shakespearian plays. The copy that I own belonged to my uncle and the notes that have been scribbled into the book indicate that he read it when he was in high school. A part of me is jealous that he actually got to study this play whereas I was stuck with Hamlet. However, as I th [...]


    24. Re-reading it for a class I'm taking, I was surprised to see that it's not the hoary, near-cliched, armchair statesman-like story I'd snored through in high school.It's actually a taut, crackling, suspenseful political thriller which is more compelling, dire, complex, and profound than I'd originally noticed. It's about revolution, revolutionaries, and the price one pays for irrigating the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants. You get the restless, brittle, inferiority complex of Cassius, h [...]


    25. But Brutus says he was ambitious;And Brutus is an honourable man…. I think that reading Shakespeare's plays does not do them justice - they aren't meant to be read, they are meant to be performed, and seen performed. However, you also miss a lot if you aren't already familiar with the context and the Shakespearean language, because of course ol' Will packs a lot into every single line.So, this is the famous play about the conspirators who assassinated Julius Caesar, fearing his ambition to bec [...]


    26. برای من این نمایشنامه ی شکسپیر غیر از هر نگاه سیاسی-اجتماعی ای چیزی در ستایش و نکوهش سخنه. به بهترین نحو نشون می ده که چطور با کلمه ها و جمله ها می شه افراد رو وسوسه کرد، برانگیختشون، دیدگاهشون رو عوض کرد و چه مونولوگا و حدیث نفس های دقیق و خوبی داره. به خصوص اون مونولوگ مارک آنتو [...]


    27. Hey. It's Brutus. Marcus Brutus. Don't adjust your… whatever device you're hearing this on. It's me, live and in stereo. No return engagements, no second battle, and this time absolutely no requests. Get a flask of wine, settle in, cos I'm about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, why I ran into a fucking sword. And if you're listening to this tape, you were one of the reasons why.TAPE 1, side A: Julius Ceasar (my first love with whom it all started)TAPE 1, side B: Portia (my [...]


    28. Mutlaka okunması gereken önemli bir klasik eser. Roma Tarihini yeniden okuma isteği uyandırdı bende. Gerçekle gerçeküstünün iç içe geçtiği, büyülü bir tiyatro. Okunmak için değil, yaşanmak için yazılmışçasına.
