If you want to read the original Shakespeare text, but don't feel confident that you'll understand it, this edition gives you a page by page rendition in the original on the right, and the equivalent page translated into modern English on the left. I got this for my 12 year to read before we went to watch the play. It worked a treat. It meant he could read the original confidently and without feeling he had to ask me for help every few lines. It also meant he recognised much of the play when he watched it a day or two later.

I've used this series in school before as a study aid for KS3 and KS4: my reservations - some weaker students feel it gives them twice as much to read and some might become over reliant on the translation and not try to access the original themselves.

This text was very helpful to a group trying to perform the text. The standard English "translation" makes understanding the content easier. It would also make it much more accessible for any school pupil wishing to study the text. Small size of the book was also helpful at rehearsals
