Shakespeare Studies Fall 2019

Julius Caesar

I've been sceptical about  JC ever since Mankiewicz cast Marlon Brando as Mark Antony and he received high critical praise for not mumbling.  After seeing the film, I wished that I had taken Calpurnia's advice to JC and gone...home, much happier.

Now is the time to overcome and put aside my likely unjustified prejudice against this play.  So, I am inviting you to come and help me get my knives out of Julius Caesar's back.

PS It occurs to me that we have would-be Caesars in several nations.  Who will take up Brutus' knife to save Rome in 2020? or Kashmir? or the rain forest? or the world economy
