Shakespeare's original language paired with a line-by-line modern English paraphrase
A series presenting Shakespeare’s plays in both the original text and in a line-by-line modern English paraphrase. The contemporary “translation” on facing pages illuminates difficult and outdated elements of the original Elizabethan language. The paraphrase is not meant as a substitute for reading Shakespeare, but as an alternative to the heavy annotations which sometimes frustrate modern readers. The texts include a special supplement with study and test questions, vocabulary, and background material. Illustrated. Perfection Learning. Third Edition. ©2003–04
