Julius Caesar´s exciting plot, brilliant rhetoric, and searching characterisation have made it one of Shakespeare´s most popular plays with both readers and theatre-goers. Introducing this thoroughly reconsidered edition, Arthur Humphreys provides a fresh look at the play´s date and its place in the Shakespeare canon and examines Shakespeare´s transmutation of history into drama. He investigates the play´s ethical and moral concerns in a section on Roman values and analyses its fortunes in performance, from its immediately successful first staging to modern productions for cinema, television, and stage. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World´s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford´s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
This collection of essays centres on Double Falsehood , Lewis Theobalds 1727 adaptation of the lost play of Cardenio, possibly co-authored by John Fletcher and William Shakespeare. In a departure from most scholarship to date, the contributors fold Double Falsehood back into the milieu for which it was created rather than searching for traces of Shakespeare in the text. Robert D. Humes knowledge of theatre history permits a fresh take on the forgery question as well as the Shakespeare authorship controversy. Diana Solomons understanding of eighteenth-century rape culture and Jean I. Marsdens command of contemporary adaptation practices both emphasise the plays immediate social and theatrical contexts. And, finally, Deborah C. Paynes familiarity with the eighteenth-century stage allows for a reconsideration of Double Falsehood as integral to a debate between Theobald, Alexander Pope, and John Gay over the future of the English drama. Deborah C. Payne is an Associate Professor of Literature at American University. She specializes in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century drama, theatre history, and performance theory. Her publications include Cultural Readings of Restoration and Eighteenth-Century English Theatre , co-edited with J. Douglas Canfield; The Cambridge Companion to English Restoration Theatre ; and Four Restoration Libertine Plays . Recently she completed The Commodiluxe Stage: A New History of Restoration Theatre, 1660-1700 .

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, , course: Seminary: Literary Works and Their Contexts, language: English, abstract: As Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was unable to pursue his chosen career as a scientist and could not fight in World War II due to a disease that caused him to be almost blind, he turned to writing and throughout his career published numerous caricatures, essays, sketches, and four novels. (Jalic Inc., 2000) His dystopian novel Brave New World was published in 1932. It represented his most successful novel and it may be said that [a]llusions of The Tempest and other Shakespearean works make Brave New World one of the most complex and significant, as well as best known, works of twentieth century fiction. (Powell, 1991, P. ii) That Huxley took Mirandas words in Shakespeares comedy The Tempest in order to form a title for his own book Brave New World is not a secret anymore. However, to some it could be a surprising fact that Huxley did not only use Mirandas words, but statements of 16 different Shakespearean plays in total. Also, Huxley did not divide the quotations among his characters - he gave all of them to one single character: John. In this seminar paper, Aldous Huxleys character John the Savage is examined for Shakespearean influence. In the final part of the paper, answers are found to how and why John the Savage quotes Shakespearean plays. In order to provide a sufficient base for the examination of the book, first, there has to be taken a look at Shakespeare himself and the time he lived in. After searching the Elizabethan Age for its ideals and norms, three of the Shakespearean plays are looked at closer: Othello, The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet, as these are thought to have the biggest influence on John. Furthermore, a short overview of Aldous Huxley himself and the book Brave New World is given and followed by a characterization of the Savage. Bettina Hajek wurde am 22.11.1988 in Dingolfing geboren.
