In his careful reading of this transitional play - Shakespeare's development from chronicle to biographical history - Matt Simpson considers some of the critical views it has attracted and goes on to discuss the 'idea of Rome' with which the play provides us - a civilisation devoted to manly ideals of honour and nobility.

He also considers the play's historical and political contexts and suggests its original audience's awareness of contemporary parallels. He contemplates the political importance of oratory and the significant role of the supernatural. He ends by giving detailed accounts of the personalities and motivations of the play's four main characters.
