About the Author

Arguably the greatest English-language playwright, William Shakespeare was a seventeenth-century writer and dramatist, and is known as the Bard of Avon. Under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth I, he penned more than 30 plays, 154 sonnets, and numerous narrative poems and short verses. Equally accomplished in histories, tragedies, comedy, and romance, Shakespeare s most famous works include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, and As You Like It.

Like many of his contemporaries, including Christopher Marlowe, Shakespeare began his career on the stage, eventually rising to become part-owner of Lord Chamberlain s Men, a popular dramatic company of his day, and of the storied Globe Theatre in London.

Extremely popular in his lifetime, Shakespeare s works continue to resonate more than three hundred years after his death. His plays are performed more often than any other playwright s, have been translated into every major language in the world, and are studied widely by scholars and students.

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.

My 15 year old daughter is using this for her English/Drama studies. The side-by-side text is a huge help. The information preceding each act is very helpful and interesting as are the comprehension questions at the end of each section.

This is a great tool for high schoolers as they attempt to come to grips with Shakespearean English. With modern text on one page and the original text on the facing page, they not only understand the story line, they also begin to understand the many nuances. My high schoolers not only excelled in their English class, they became Shakespeare fans.

I'm getting ready to audition for Romeo and Juliet, and I was having trouble understanding what some of the things that the characters were saying meant. I wanted to know exactly how to express what the characters were feeling. So, I figured this book would help me out. And it did, a lot. This book "translates" the old English into a more modern version. It gives you both the original text and the modernized version. So, basically, if you're having trouble understanding the language, I recommend that you pick this up. It's worth it!

I'm a high school freshman studying Romeo & Juliet and I cannot understand hardly any of it. I found this book at a Borders bookstore and I have been reading it and it is extremely helpful. There's a line-by-line translation that makes a ton more sense. Buy this if you're having trouble with R&J!

What can I say? It's one of the most well-known love stories (albeit tragic love stories) out there.
