Julius Caesar, a powerful and respected Roman, is warned by a fortune-teller that danger is ahead. With power often comes enemies, who's conspiring against Caesar and will they succeed? Follow Caesar in this tragic tale of power, war and ambition. QED has chosen four plays to continue the successful Tales from Shakespeare series. These titles serve as the perfect introduction into the works of Shakespeare. The plays are retold as stories using clear and contemporary language, whilst each title keeps its originality by including key quotations from the original text. Lively illustrations bring these popular plays to life and will be sure to captivate the imagination and interest of young readers.
These versions are retold in modern English but - and I really like this - they include key quotations from the original, in highlighted boxes. The retellings, despite being in modern English, manage to capture the feel of Shakespeare's language and they read aloud excellently; the attractive drawings give readers a feel for the plays and their characters
