Journey into Roman antiquity with Brandeis scholar Michael Booth, and encounter a Rome more familiar—and more provocative—than you possibly could have imagined. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra are mainly focused on penetrating questions of character and human relationships. His last Roman play, Coriolanus, poses questions of justice and the virtues of democracy uncanny for today’s American reader. Find out what the greatest writer in English had to say about justice.

About the faculty: Michael Booth, PhD, received his doctoral degree in English from Brandeis in 2003. He has been a visiting professor at Oberlin College and Haverford College and a fellow of the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University.
