Shakespeare Unbard, Episode 20: Julius Caesar has a really bad day on the Ides of March

The central relationship of Julius Caesar is a masculine one: it is the dissolution of the friendship between Brutus and Cassius which is Shakespeare's primary concern. In focusing on something so personal, Shakespeare is able to demonstrate the manner in which large events have a personal cost.  In Episode 20 of Shakespeare Unbard, Joel Fishbane explores one of Shakespeare's greatest and most enduring works.

In this episode you'll hear clips and excerpts from:

  • Brill, Clive. dir. Julius Caesar. Arkangel Shakespeare.

  • Shakespeare, William.  Julius Caesar (The Riverside Shakespeare). Houghton and Mifflin, 1974.
