Well, YES! We should study many Shakespearean plays in high-school. I shall, however, concentrate on Julius Caesar. It is best to consider some major themes of the play.

Loyalty- Should Brutus have been loyal to his friend Caesar, who he loved, or be loyal to a cause you think worthy.

Civil Disobedience- Should, like Brutus, you do a bad deed for a greater good? Brutus conspired against Caesar for the good of the Republic.

Public Self versus Private Self

Much of the play’s tragedy stems from the characters’ neglect of private feelings and loyalties in favour of what they believe to be the public good. Caesar won't heed the warnings of his fiends. Brutus will not confide in his wife Portia. Similarly today, can we separate a politician’s public and private life? How about your teacher's private and public life?

There are more themes which are relevant today, like fate vs free will, but I'll save that for another time.

I believe that we should still study the piece of history .

Today - the theme of Blind Ambition is still shown today in poltitics.

The Theme of Loyalaty still holds true because we have so many men and women fighting for our freedom today
