Here are the books that help teach Shakespeare plays without the teacher constantly needing to explain and define Elizabethan terms, slang, and other ways of expression that are different from our own. Each play is presented with Shakespeare's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand "translation" on the facing right-hand page. All dramas are complete, with every original Shakespearian line, and a full-length modern rendition of the text.
- Helpful background information that puts each play in its historical perspective.
- Discussion questions that teachers can use to spark student class participation, and which students can use as springboards for their own themes and term papers.
- Fact quizzes, sample examinations, and other features that improve student comprehension of what each play is about.

Macbeth is by far Shakespeare's greatest play. It's better than Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet. It's confusing at times, but awesome nonetheless. It's the best!!!
I thought Macbeth was an aswome book for its great drama. The words were so strong it was almost confusing at times. I will defenitley (is that how you spell that???) see it and read it again! bye~!
Great book (if thats what you call it, maybe play is more accurate) obviously a classic. The modern english parts make it easier to read, but please do not just read those parts, the great thing about Shakespeare is how he wrote and the language that he used.
I bought this for a Special Needs student haveing trouble understanding the Shakespearian language. Other students wanted to borrow it too! I am so glad we have these great resouces to help every student!
