Julius Caesar

Inhimillinen murhenäytelmä vallan huumaamasta diktaattorista on samalla koskettava kuvaus yksityisen ja julkisen elämän kipeistä ristiriidoista.

CASSIUS:

Kumartukaa roomalaiset,

kumartukaa, peskäämme kädet hänen veressään

kyynärpäitä myöten, ja punatkaamme miekat.

Sitten niitä heiluttaen torille, ja huutakaamme kaikki:

"Vapaus, vapautus, ja oikeus!"

Caesar on päihtynyt vallasta ja kansan ihailusta eikä usko varoittaviin ennusmerkkeihin. Joukko tasavaltaa kannattavia senaattoreita, heidän joukossaan myös Caesarille läheinen Brutus, päättää surmata yksinvaltiaan, jonka epäillään havittelevan kuninkuutta. Murhan jälkeen Roomassa käydään sisällissotaa, kunnes Caesarin uskollinen ystävä Marcus Antonius kukistaa salaliittolaiset. Paitsi poliittis-historiallinen tragedia Julius Caesar on inhimillinen murhenäytelmä, koskettava kuvaus yksityisen ja julkisen elämän kipeistä ristiriidoista sekä vallan himosta ja hinnasta.

Lauri Siparin suomennoksessa näkyy teatterialan ammattilaisen kädenjälki.

In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a violent world, in which two young people fall in love. It is not simply that their families disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud.

In this death-filled setting, the movement from love at first sight to the lovers’ final union in death seems almost inevitable. And yet, this play set in an extraordinary world has become the quintessential story of young love. In part because of its exquisite language, it is easy to respond as if it were about all young lovers.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare stages the workings of love. Theseus and Hippolyta, about to marry, are figures from mythology. In the woods outside Theseus’ Athens, two young men and two young women sort themselves out into couples—but not before they form first one love triangle, and then another.

Also in the woods, the king and queen of fairyland, Oberon and Titania, battle over custody of an orphan boy; Oberon uses magic to make Titania fall in love with a weaver named Bottom, whose head is temporarily transformed into that of a donkey by a hobgoblin or “puck,” Robin Goodfellow. Finally, Bottom and his companions ineptly stage the tragedy of “Pyramus and Thisbe.”
