“Julius Caesar from Shakespeare to Mankiewicz””
Du au 17 October
Of all the characters we know from Ancient Rome, Julius Caesar, along with Cleopatra and Nero, is one of the most famous. But, somewhat paradoxically, he is one of the least portrayed characters in literature and cinema. Despite his extraordinary story! Only three aspects of his life have been fictionalised, with varying levels of heavy-handedness: the Gallic wars, his love affair with Cleopatra and his tragic death. These three chapters in his story will be discussed throughout the talk.
