I've always thought that Julius Caesar is a work of art. It's my favorite Shakespeare creation it definitely beats Romeo and Juliet in my opinion.

So much of modern drama was done by others first. Shakespeare is the father of the modern romance as well as comedy. He stole tragedy from the Greeks (read Oedipus Rex). As they say, there is nothing new under the sun.

At the end of the book I was like why does he had to die?? was a tragedy but at the end good triumph over evil.. Julius ceaser is a book by Shakespeare which doesn't just portray war, it is an adventure, a mind blowing book.. one AF my favourite in Shakespeare's collection. :D

I had to read Julius Ceasar in school and me my friends never realized what a good story it was until we were studying for exams months later. The language used in Shakespeare's plays used to be somewhat of a barrier for me then, but I grew to like it because it made the story more interesting because I had to work to unpack it. As for The Fault in Our Stars reference, I got it while I was studying Shakespeare. The book, which I've never read and don't plan to, came out around the time I was studying and I didn't pick up the reference until I read it in class.

That Julius Caesar quote is one of the more famous quotes from the play, so when I saw Green's book title it came to mind right away. But then, I am a big Shakespeare fan. It would seem that Green is as well, or at least a Julius Caesar fan.

I love Shakespeares works and is one of my all time favourite authors, but personally this was not my favourite of his plays. I struggled to except the concept of Brutus be a tragic hero for betraying his friend, although I understand why in that time period people were more susceptible to putting all their trust in others. I did love Antony’s character, in particular his brilliant speech and I would love to explore the historical connection between Cleopatra and him soon.
