edly copied, badly mutilated. Dr. S.S. Agarwalla has un¬doubtedly burrowed into not only the En¬glish editions but also Indian editions of the play but what distinguishes him from oth¬ers is that his approach, his style, his pre¬sentation, and his analysis is refreshing, useful and at times, radical and sweeping. They are intended to be no more than provocative and stimulating.
Julius Caesar is as much relevant today as it was during the Elizabethan Age because moral and political realism, the backbone of the play, remains the same in the con¬temporary world, India being no excep¬tion. Treachery, jealousy, conspiracy, as¬sassination and battle, in the name of 'ism' is no less intense in our world than it was in the world of Julius Caesar. Therein lies the universality of Shakespeare.
