I was able to explain the more difficult passages to them as we read along in the book.
Trinket
We first started to read some other books with the Old English type writing and I got a C- in this class because I couldnt understand it.
LC
This book makes the play perfectly clear, and with the side-by-side arrangement, makes the original poetry understandable and beautiful.

I am a student who had to read this book and I couldn't understand most of the stuff Shakespeare was writing. We first started to read some other books with the Old English type writing and I got a C- in this class because I couldnt understand it. We just started reading Romeo and Juliet and I had the same problem so I bought this book. Boy, did it help me! I got an A in my class! Another feature which I liked was how the layout is put side-by-side so if you have to read during class, you'll be able to know where everyone is and if you dont understand it, just go to the other side.

This was a great resource while teaching "Romeo and Juliet" last year to my English 1 students. I was able to explain the more difficult passages to them as we read along in the book. I wish that I had the money to purchase this book for all of my students. I plan to use it again this school year.

Before this book, my wife and I never enjoyed Shakespeare very much. This book makes the play perfectly clear, and with the side-by-side arrangement, makes the original poetry understandable and beautiful. We watched the play afterward and finally began to glimpse the wonder that is hidden within the words.

I bought this book for my high school Shakespeare class and found it to be the most helpful thing. With this book, you get a feel for what Shakespeare was saying in a language that you can understand. With my other Shakespeare books, I had to wait for my teacher to explain to us just what had happened in the lines we had just read. When I used this book, I understood the material before it was explained to me. I recommend this to anyone taking an Intro to Shakespeare class.

Willie Shakes wrote great- but he was very hard to read.This book is a must have reference for everyone- student or otherwise- who wishes to (or has to) read Romeo & Juliet.

This book would be great for anyone who wants to read Shakespeare in their own free time or for someone who needs to read it for class! The modern English translation makes it easy to keep up with the story if you're ever lost in the Old English text (although sometimes their interpretation is a bit off, it's pretty accurate). If you're having doubts on which book to buy, buy this one!

I would recommend this book to anyone studying "Romeo and Juliet." I would have never made it through English class without this book!

I ordered this book for my 9th grade regular students for learning Romeo and Juliet. It has the Shakespeare version on one side and the plain English translation on the other. It really helped some of my lower level students get involved in learning the play instead of getting discourage because they didn't understand the language. I highly recommend this product, especially for struggling readers.
