I look forward to using it at my desk and perhaps in my classroom over many years, enjoying Jonathan Bate's perceptive comments, trusting Eric Rasmussen's textual scholarship.' – Professor Peter Holland, Times Literary Supplement From the Royal Shakespeare Company – a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's drama of the conflict between one man's ambition and the good of the state. THIS EDITION INCLUDES: • An illuminating introduction to Julius Caesar by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate • The play - with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page • A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play • An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre • A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of Julius Caesar in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with three leading directors - Lucy Bailey, David Farr and Edward Hall - so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.

'Julius Caesar is, simply, Shakespeare's African play' John Kani In 2012, actor Paterson Joseph played the role of Brutus in the Royal Shakespeare Company's acclaimed production of Julius Caesar - Gregory Doran's last play before becoming Artistic Director for the RSC. It is a play, Joseph is quick to acknowledge, that is widely misunderstood - even dreaded - when it comes to study and performance. Alongside offering fascinating insights into Julius Caesar and Shakespeare's writing, Joseph serves up details of the rehearsal process; his key collaborations during an eclectic career; as well as his experience of working with a majority black cast. He considers the positioning of ethnic minority actors in Shakespeare productions in general, and female actors tackling so seemingly masculine a play in particular. Audience reactions are also investigated by Joseph, citing numerous conversations he has had with psychologists, counsellors and neurologists on the subject of what happens between performer and spectator. For Paterson Joseph, his experience of playing Brutus in Julius Caesar with the RSC was a defining point in his career, and a transformative experience. For any actor or practitioner working on Shakespeare - or for any reader interested in his plays - this is a fascinating and informative read, which unlocks so much about making and understanding theatre from the inside.

Endlich – das triumphale Finale von Robert Harris’ Cicero-Trilogie Cicero, größter Redner seiner Zeit, weilt mit seinem Sekretär Tiro im Exil. Da er seinen politischen Feind Caesar zu unterstützen verspricht, kann er nach Rom zurückkehren, wo er sich wieder zu ö entlichem Ansehen emporkämpft. Genial und fehlbar, angsterfüllt und doch unbändig mutig – der mit sich ringende Mensch hinter dem Politiker Cicero macht die Geschichte so unwiderstehlich. Dictator umfasst bedeutsame Momente der Menschheitsgeschichte: den Untergang der römischen Republik, den folgenden Bürgerkrieg, die Enthauptung von Pompeius und den Meuchelmord an Caesar. Das Thema jedoch ist zeitlos: Wie lässt sich politische Freiheit gegen skrupellosen Ehrgeiz, korrumpierte Wahlen und den verderblichen Einfluss endloser Auslandseinsätze schützen?

Julius, ein junger Psychiater, durchstreift die Straßen Manhattans, allein und ohne Ziel, stundenlang. Die Bewegung ist ein Ausgleich zur Arbeit, sie strukturiert seine Abende, seine Gedanken. Er lässt sich treiben, und während seine Schritte ihn tragen, denkt er an seine kürzlich zerbrochene Liebesbeziehung, seine Kindheit, seine Isolation in dieser Metropole voller Menschen. Fast unmerklich verzaubert sein Blick die Umgebung, die Stadt blättert sich vor ihm auf, offenbart die Spuren der Menschen, die früher hier lebten. Mit jeder Begegnung, jeder neuen Entdeckung gerät Julius tiefer hinein in die verborgene Gegenwart New Yorks – und schließlich in seine eigene, ihm fremd gewordene Vergangenheit. Für seinen faszinierenden Roman über einen Flaneur des 21. Jahrhunderts ist Teju Cole international von Presse und Lesern gefeiert und mit Autoren wie Sebald, Camus oder Naipaul verglichen worden. Getragen vom Fluss seiner bewegenden, klaren Sprache, erzählt »Open City« eine Geschichte von Erinnerung, Entwurzelung und der erlösenden Kraft der Kunst.

This book, which explores the full extent of Shakespeare performances in England over the last decade, invites a broad readership of playgoers and students. As a regular theatre reviewer, Holland has examined the variety, the strengths and the problems of English productions and companies. They are charted chronologically here, and compared with productions elsewhere. Peter Holland's reviews are individually thoughtful, provocative and illuminating; cumulatively they show that there is no one English Shakespeare style but a rich and often bewildering variety.

What does it mean to study Shakespeare within a multicultural society? And who has the power to transform Shakespeare? The Diverse Bard explores how Shakespeare has been adapted by artists born on the margins of the Empire, and how actors of Asian and African-Caribbean origin are being cast by white mainstream directors. It examines how notions of 'race' define the contemporary British experience, including the demands of traditional theatre, and it looks at both the playtexts themselves and contemporary productions. Editor Delia Jarrett-Macauley assembles a stunning collection of classic texts and new scholarship by leading critics and practitioners, to provide the first comprehensive critical and practical analysis of this field.

Teju Cole betrachtet Kunst, wie er die Welt betrachtet: mit dem Blick eines unsystematischen Historikers, der zunächst beobachtet, beschreibt, das Offensichtliche betrachtet, um zum weniger Offensichtlichen vorzudringen, das darunter liegt. Seine Essays handeln vom Unterwegssein, von politischer Moral, von Rassismus und von dem, was ihn geistig nährt, ob Essays von Baldwin, Gedichte von Tranströmer oder neue Meister der Fotografie auf Instagram. Und immer wieder zieht er erhellende Verbindungen, von der konkreten Gegenwart zur Dichtung, von der Geschichte zur Kunst. "Vertraute Dinge, fremde Dinge" offenbart den Reichtum von Teju Coles Interessen, hier findet er zum poetischen Kern seines Denkens und Schreibens.

Antony and Cleopatra dramatizes a major event in world history: the founding of the Roman Empire. The future first emperor, Octavius Caesar (later called Augustus Caesar), cold-bloodedly manipulates other characters and exercises iron control over himself. At first, he shares power with Mark Antony, Rome’s preeminent military leader, and the weaker Lepidus. Caesar needs Antony to fend off other Roman strongmen like Pompey; he even offers his sister Octavia to him as a bride, despite Antony’s reputation as a libertine and his past rivalry with Caesar. Once Caesar defeats Pompey, however, he needs no allies. He brings charges against Lepidus, denies Antony his spoils from Pompey’s defeat, and seizes cities in the eastern Roman colonies that Antony rules. The play’s emphasis, however, is on those whom Caesar defeats: Antony and his wealthy Egyptian ally, Queen Cleopatra. The play does not sugarcoat Antony and Cleopatra’s famous love affair, including her calculated attempts to seduce Antony from his duties and his rage when he thinks she has betrayed him to Caesar. Nonetheless, the lovers find such sensual and emotional satisfaction that Caesar’s world conquest seems smaller than what they find in each other. The authoritative edition of Antony and Cleopatra from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes: -The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference -Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation -Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play -Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play -Scene-by-scene plot summaries -A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases -An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language -An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play -Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books -An annotated guide to further reading Essay by Cynthia Marshall The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, is home to the world’s largest collection of Shakespeare’s printed works, and a magnet for Shakespeare scholars from around the globe.

Die Gelegenheit kommt zwölf Jahre später, als ein Zufall die Verräter in seine Nähe bringt. In ihrem brillanten Roman schafft die große kanadische Autorin Margaret Atwood mit der Figur des Theaterdirektors Felix ein würdiges Pendant zu Shakespeares Prospero aus „Der Sturm“, jenes Zauberers, der als ein Selbstporträt des alternden Barden aus Stratford-on-Avon gilt.

Why Shakespeare? It’s been 400 years since his death and yet we continue to find inspiration, revelation, solace, and entertainment in his poems and plays. In this original collection, Susannah Carson invites 38 actors, directors, scholars, and writers to share their own personal connections with Shakespeare and explore how he came to shape our world so completely. Along the way, we reminisce on a childhood spent constructing makeshift matchstick theatres with Isabel Allende, grapple with Coriolanus for a modern audience alongside Ralph Fiennes, hear from James Earl Jones on reclaiming Othello as a tragic hero, share in Julie Taymor’s transformation of Prospero into Prospera, join Sir Ben Kingsley on his mission to keep Shakespeare’s ideas alive for all generations through performance, and muse with Brian Cox on social conflict in Shakespeare’s time and in ours. Together they offer fresh insight into Shakespeare’s work as a living legacy to be read, seen, performed, adapted, revised, wrestled with, and loved.
