4.0 out of 5 stars Suits our needs, March 28, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Macbeth (Shakespeare Made Easy) (Paperback)
I won't even attempt to critique Shakespeare's work, as some have done here. I'm not reviewing MacBeth, but this particular version of it. As a homeschooling Mom with three highschool students, the only way we could get through Shakespeare's works is by having a copy of Shakespeare Made Easy on hand. As it is, we completed 5 plays this year - all done orally, with each of us taking several parts. While I think it's important that my kids read Shakespeare in it's original format (and they did), I had the Shakespeare Made Easy translation handy so that I could give simple, concise explanations whenever they just didn't "get it". I recommend these books for that purpose - not for the watered down versions of these classics, but to make them understandable to the average student who might otherwise find Shakespeare's works boring and a waste of time (as many students do).

I am looking for a modern translation so I can quickly read Macbeth before a trip to England and performance at the Globe. I think this just might do the trick. But my reason for writing is my admiration for you as a home school mother intent on giving your children the best in education. You have surpassed the goals of any school curriculum that I am familiar with and my hat is off to you. A retired English/Biology teach of 30 years in public education
