5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare makes total sense at last
I used to think I understood the original text, but with the Sparknotes modern text alongside the original I realised just how much I had been missing. I never realised Mercutio was quite so rude! Generally I would only want the modern translation as a guide to help with understanding, but this is the exception. While not quite Shakespeare at his best it's pithy and in...

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy Shakespeare
I haven't really looked at this book in depth yet, but it appears to be what I required. I wanted to try and teach some English literature to French-speaking Belgian students and I thought this book might be a good text to use. I have yet to try however!

I used to think I understood the original text, but with the Sparknotes modern text alongside the original I realised just how much I had been missing. I never realised Mercutio was quite so rude! Generally I would only want the modern translation as a guide to help with understanding, but this is the exception. While not quite Shakespeare at his best it's pithy and in keeping with the spirit of the original and could certainly be used on its own to give a good flavour of Shakespearean theatre without the misunderstandings. I would certainly buy other books in this series.

Ordered this for my daughter, She said it was the best study book she had used for Romeo and Juliet, wishing she had not bothered with any others and had got this in the begining. She ranted and raved about the book, so would recommond this book.
