Shakespeares most commonly studied plays, now the latest additions to the innovative Manga Shakespeare series

 

“Double double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble . . .” So say the eerie trio of witches in Shakespeares Macbeth, a story full of ghosts, witches, bloody ambition, and nonstop action. After Macbeth hears the witches prophecy that he will be king, he will stop at nothing to make it so. Vividly adapted using Shakespeares own words in the fast-paced and immediate style of manga, Macbeth is the perfect addition to the Manga Shakespeare series—ideal for students and manga fans alike.

In King Lear, the aging kingand#8212;here a Native Americanand#8212;must decide how to split his kingdom among his daughters. When he scorns his one dutiful daughter and trusts the two selfish ones, he pays a steep price.
