Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This wonderful presentation of Shakespeare's The Tempest features the play's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand "translation" on the facing right-hand page. This invaluable teaching-study guide also includes:
  • Helpful background information that puts the 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 the play is about

Synopsis:

Presents the original text of Shakespeare's play side by side with a modern version, discusses the author and the theater of his time, and provides quizzes and other study activities.

Synopsis:

The story of Prospero, an exiled duke, who, with his daughter, landed on an island during a storm, and his attempt to get revenge.

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.
