PREFACE

This edition of Julius Cæsar is intended for the use of young students ; hence the omission of some features which are of especial interest to older minds.

In the notes, no tracing of derivations has been given, since the etymology of words may readily be found in dictionaries. Different manuscript readings and conflicting opinions of critics are omitted, as unedifying to young students. The historical basis as suggested by Plutarch, difficult allusions, and meanings of words and phrases which are unusual or obscure, are supplied.

Special features of the notes are (1) collated Peculiarities of Grammatical Usage, based upon Abbott's Shakespearian Grammar, a work which is seldom accessible, and which is difficult for young students to untangle; (2) an explanation of Shakespeare's Verse,

C. D. TRANSFER MAR 20

with reference to peculiar metrical arrangement in this play.

The aim throughout has been to stimulate thought on the part of the student, and to supply sufficient aid for intelligent reading of the play.

The text is that of the Temple edition.

The editors acknowledge obligations to the editions of Rolfe, Sprague, and Deighton.

INDIANAPOLIS, October, 1899.
