William Shakespeare lived from 1564 to 1616. During his time, he wrote and established many plays. Although he lived about 400 years ago, his themes still have proven their universality today. A good example of this is in the play, Julius Caesar. One of the themes in this play is that there are many methods of manipulation, that persuade and influence people into a certain direction, sometimes too quickly, without thought.

The overall theme in this play is that people are influenced and persuaded by what others say and sometimes people are persuaded too quickly. Because of Shakespeare’s talent as a writer, his plays will continue to go on and prove their universality, long after the time they were written.
