Lean and Hungry Time That Feels Like Today
By BRUCE WEBER

SAN DIEGO, July 15 -- "Julius Caesar" is so full of aphorisms and
declarations that onstage it often succumbs to pomposity. The play is so
concerned with the difference between what men say and what they think
as they jockey for power that it is frequently performed with two-faced
hyperbole. And it is so determined to illustrate the manipulative nature
of politics that in performance it can drip with irony or light up its
contemporary relevance in neon. No wonder it is a junior high school
classic.
