Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. These invaluable teaching-study guides also include:

1. Helpful background information that puts each play in its historical perspective.

2. 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.

3. Fact quizzes, sample examinations, and other features that improve student comprehension of what each play is about.

Synopsis:

Each title in Barron"s popular and enduring Shakespeare Made Easy series presents the complete text of a Shakespeare play with Shakespeare"s original lines printed on left-hand pages and a modern, easy-to-understand 'translation' of the Bard"s Elizabethan English on facing right-hand pages. In addition to the play, each book presents helpful background information for students that places each play in historical perspective, as well as quizzes and questions that teachers can use for short tests and classroom discussions. Here are fine introductions to many of the greatest plays ever written--literary classics that every student should know and understand. In Shakespeare"s romantic comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, the lovely Bianca is courted by many suitors, but her bad-tempered sister Kate frightens young men away. Then Kate is courted by Petruchio, and the real fun begins.
