PREFACE

This little book is intended to be both an edition of Julius Caesar and an elementary introduction to the study of Shakespeare. It is hoped that the book will stimulate those who use it to read other plays of the great dramatist. The editor has tried to arrange his material so that one topic can be taken and another left, as the plans of the teacher or the time at his disposal may dictate. For this reason, the indebtedness of the play to Plutarch and the matter of versification, for example, have been kept out of the Notes almost entirely; but each of these subjects is fully treated elsewhere.

Among the separate editions of this play, the editor is under especial obligation to those of Wright, Odell, Rolfe, Craik, and Verity. Mr. G. F. Reynolds, Fellow in English of the University of Chicago, has contributed valuable suggestions. The editor is deeply indebted to his good friend Professor W. D. MacClintock for some searching criticism.
