Anchovius Caesar by Sarah Boxer


In Anchovius Caesar: The Decomposition of a Romaine Salad, a cartoon remake of Shakespeare’s tragedy Julius Caesar, the star is an anchovy named Anchovius Caesar. The Roman citizens, who sway this way and that, cheering for Caesar one moment and for Brutus the next, are played by romaine lettuce leaves. The countrymen are crouton-men. Mark Antony is a mock anchovy, a sprat. As we know from Shakespeare and history, the salad state cannot hold. Numerous creatures — Brutus, a weasel, Cassius, a crocodile, Trebonius, a fluorescent Kaputar pink slug (a Triboniophorus), Casca, a deadly Cascabel rattlesnake, and a host of other killers — are on the loose! Anchovius must die!
