    From the archives: 'The Ides of March' by Thornton Wilder reviewed
    Editor's note: This year, to mark the Ides of March, we revisit not Shakespeare, but Thornton Wilder's 1948 epistolary novel of Julius Caesar's Rome. In the foreword to a 2003 edition, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. wrote, "the Julius Caesar in this book, literate, well read, unburdened by ignorance and superstition, is in all respects a modern man. 'The Ides of March,' while set in Rome, might well be about a brilliant and all-too-human dictator in modern times, and what it could be like for the men and women who are close to one. The book's lesson ... is that it is human nature which does not change, no matter the era or situation." Here's a look back at the original Chicago Tribune review of the book.
