CAMBRIDGE SCHOOL SHAKESPEARE
This innovative series focuses on Shakespeare’s plays as scripts to be imaginatively reinvented by students in light of their own life experiences. The full, unabridged text of each play is presented along with theater games and writing activities on facing pages. In Julius Caesar, students read Antony’s speech to Caesar’s dead body as if it were a bedtime story. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, groups compare the rites of May with their own holidays. And in Romeo and Juliet, they improvise versions of the balcony scene. Capsulized explanations and definitions are provided on activity pages. Valuable for theater classes as well as literature studies. Includes photographs from Royal Shakespeare Company productions. Illustrated. Published in Great Britain. Cambridge University Press. ©1993–2005.
Quantities are limited.
