Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barron"s popular Shakespeare Made Easy series 'translates' Shakespeare"s plays into lively modern English that today"s readers can understand, while also retaining the Bard"s original and immortal lines. The newest addition to this enduring series is Shakespeare"s pastoral romance, As You Like It, a comedy of disguises and multiple mistaken identities. Rosalind, a young maiden, is banished from her kingdom by her cruel uncle, Duke Frederick. She disguises herself as a boy, Ganymede, and flees to the Forest of Arden. There she joins her exiled father, Duke Senior, and an assortment of other colorful characters, including the bawdy jester Touchstone and the melancholy nobleman Jacques, who famously soliloquizes on the seven ages of man. Meanwhile Rosalind, safe in her forest home, encounters the handsome Orlando, and they fall in love. Theirs is only one of several love stories that grace this witty play. All ends happily, as Duke Frederick and Duke Senior are reconciled, and Rosalind and Orlando are blissfully married.

    Barron's popular Shakespeare Made Easy series translates Shakespeare's plays into lively modern English that today's readers can understand. The newest addition to this enduring series is the pastoral romance "As You Like It," a comedy of disguises and multiple mistaken identities.

    Synopsis:

    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.
