Shakespeare's Elizabethan words can be as fuzzy as a dream to many students. Perfect for the non-Shakespeare lovers who want to still be acquainted with the Bard's work, this unique book sets the original play of A Midsummer Night's Dream side by side with an easily understood modern translation. An introduction, synopsis, list of characters, character map, and reflection questions also lend additional clarity. 160 pages, softcover.
End your struggle with the Bard’s prose and appreciate his comedy about the trials and tribulations of love. Shakespeare on the Double! A Midsummer Night’s Dream includes an easy-to-understand modern English translation alongside the original Shakespearian text so that you can read only the translation, read the translation with the original text, or tackle the original text, referring only to the translation when you’re stumped. A comprehensive character list describes the traits of each major character, a visual map depicts relationships, and review questions reinforce important information so you won’t miss the action.
