By far, my 5th graders favorite book we read this year.
Meredith Binnie
This book is straightforward and also provides the original version on one side and the translated version on the other side.

Either way I read it, it made it easier to understand, faster to read, and very enjoyable.

This book is great. It does a great job of breaking down the text of "Midsummer" and telling what it really means. On one page is the actual text of the play; On the direct opposite page is the translation. The only translation I've found so far that is way out there is the translation of "Tary rash wanton...." The translation is "Wait a minute, you brazen hussy...." Now, HOW is that an understandable translation?? This is the only thing that puts a damper on a perfect score. While I was in a production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," our director frequently had us refer to the book to figure out what in the world we were saying. I highly reccommend buying this book.

The No Fear series allows quick understanding! I was going back and forth between reading the original first, and reading the modern first. Either way I read it, it made it easier to understand, faster to read, and very enjoyable.

I bought this book for my son for his eight grade drama class. he liked because not only could he memorize his lines, there was also an explanation in present day English in the book of what each line meant. This an excellent tool for teaching and enhancing the enjoyment of Shakespeare

Never say Shakespeare didn't have a sense of humor. He even made fun of himself.

This book, this play, is a comedy, a parody on his tragedy "Romeo and Juliet." This is laugh-out-loud funny at times.

No Fear Shakespeare is the best way to read the Bard, and this book is no exception.

perfect for brush-up Shakespeare. Attractive, easy-to-read /design with original and modern versions side by side. I would buy "No FearShakespeare" for any play I want to read or re-read.

The standard English translation helps get me through reading Shakespeare books. It helps me a lot because it is less frustrating and easier to understand. I recommend this to people who want to fully understand what Shakespeare is talking about with analyzing it too much. This book is straightforward and also provides the original version on one side and the translated version on the other side.

I am a high school English teacher and have been using this book as a resource for my students. Although I do not agree with all of the interpretations, I find it very useful. I recommend it to my students who are really struggling with the lovely language of Shakespeare.
