When I received the reverse, I was heated into an indignation that any person should be so indiscreet as to choose an emblem upon such an occasion so subject to misinterpretation as this would be. For as Julius Caesar said to his wife Calpurnia, that it was not enough that she should be innocent, but that she ought to be so cautious in all her actions, that she should be free even from suspicion.16 So ought it to be

legislative functions, which were transferred to the comitia centuriata. This body, which had previously served the function of an kind of electoral college (it chose the consuls), was now given legislative power. While these reforms were overturned after Sulla’s death, the influence of the plebeians arguably continued to decline until the introduction of dictatorship by Gaius Julius Caesar and his successors who concentrated more and more power in their own hands, e.g. by having themselves elected to various magistracies for life.

Thus the play itself becomes an element in the process of surveillance in the specific circumstances of the immediate aftermath of the Second World War. Hawkes then goes into the use of stages and acting within the play, and then weaves in the true-life story of the Jewish actor Mauriz Leon Reiss, who in 1930s Nazi Germany constructed a whole new non-Jewish identity for himself which

We are brothers – you and I. 128 Tanzania’s philosopher-king, Julius Nyerere, famously translated Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar into Swahili in 1963 to demonstrate that an African language could carry a classic Western tragedy. The post-independence era also produced six Nobel literature laureates: Nigeria’s Wole Soyinka, Egypt’s Naguib Mahfouz, and South Africa’s Nadine Gordimer and J.M. Coetzee, and
