Stay At Home Act 2 Scene 2
3,610 wordsShakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR is not equal as a whole, to either of his other plays taken from the Roman history. It is inferior in interest to Coriolanus, and both in interest and power to Antony and Cleopatra. Critics do not much admire the representation here given of Julius Caesar, nor do they think it answers to the portrait given of him in his Commentaries. He makes several vaporing and rather pedantic speeches, and does nothing. Indeed, he has nothing to do with it. So far, the fault of the...
