Julius Casear William Shakespeare was born in April 23, 1564. He is one of the greatest playwrights ever. His work is still viewed in astonishment today. His work are interminable. He was truly a master in his craft. His playwright career began in 1580-1616. Someone of this level of talent and skill deserves to honored. I am ecstatic to write about him. Speculations of his sexuality, that says he was an homosexual, does not dispossess my fascination with Shakespearean plays. Such speculations have gone far as to saying that his sexuality was involved in his plays. Also that his depiction of his male characters were that of superiority to the female characters. Whom were emotionally mistreated by their husbands. The husbands were bad husbands, that went against their wedding vows as to placing their male friends before their wives. In effect they were not being loyal to their wives, rather they were loyal to their male counterparts.

In an attempt to either make me, (a young adult) like or dislike William Shakespeare. His sexuality does not influence my feelings towards him . I will continue to marvel at his great plays, they are simply everlasting. I admire the plays as well as his talents in writing them. The play Julius Casear, essentially is about revenge, politics, and betrayal. These are things that existed hundreds of years ago, and still occurs today in our everyday life. These are the plot of every sopa opera show. The characters of this play are shrewd individuals, they are no different from the friends yourself and I might have. Some are generous good folks, while others are out to get what they want, and are determined to get it at any means necessary. These are the bad guys that damage the image of positive people like myself.

This play is very much dramatic, example being- Cassius' plot to kill his friend Casear, in an attempt to protect his freedom. He wanted to kill his friend in order to keep Rome a free state, as it had long been. He feared becoming a slave and having to answer to the upcoming King of Rome, Casear.
