Jim Weiss introduces his adaptation of Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR with background on its political context. His retelling of the play is suitable for young audiences and includes quotes from Shakespeare's original work. Weiss's eloquent voice gives the epic events their proper emphasis, and his language conveys historical information in a personal manner that children will easily absorb. His vivid word pictures make ancient history live again. Because Weiss delivers a story, rather than a formal performance, at times syllables are not entirely crisp. Listeners may be more engaged by Weiss's history lesson than the retelling of JULIUS CAESAR, but together the two comprise a thoughtfully compiled audio.
