Additional Information

By skillfully weaving his own prose with Shakespeare's language, Leon Garfield has refashioned twelve of the Elizabethan playwright's most memorable dramas into stories, capturing all the richness of the characters, plot, mood, and setting. This format will delight both those who know the great dramatist's works and those who are new to them. Michael Foreman's dramatic color illustrations and varied black-and-white line drawings are the perfect complement to this celebration of Shakespeare's genius.

If you have a child and/or students that are in Middle School and are just starting out reading the wonderful and creative stories of William Shakespeare, then this is a definite buy!! It has helped my son to really grasp and understand the true work and underlying meaning of his classics. By using a more basic approach and using easier vocabulary with today's type writing, my son didn't have a problem at all reading any of them. He loved it. I do believe that this will even help him when he has to read the original version of the stories when High School comes around!!
This is a great book. One of our favorite Shakespeare story books! I will be using this for middle school students before we watch Hamlet and then read some of the play.
This book makes Shakespeare so much more accessible. I used it with my 8th grader, and will probably use it again when she is in high school.

The story/narration parts are told in modern Enflish. The famous quotes are left in the original. Nicely done!
