William Shakespeare, Retold by Gayle Holste - All books by this author
Shakespeare Made Easy - All books in this series
Each title in Barron’s popular and enduring Shakespeare Made Easy series presents the complete text of a Shakespeare play with Shakespeare’s original lines printed on left-hand pages and a modern, easy-to-understand “translation” of the Bard’s Elizabethan English on facing right-hand pages. In addition to the play, each book presents helpful background information for students that places each play in historical perspective, as well as quizzes and questions that teachers can use for short tests and classroom discussions. Here are fine introductions to many of the greatest plays ever written--literary classics that every student should know and understand. In Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, the lovely Bianca is courted by many suitors, but her bad-tempered sister Kate frightens young men away. Then Kate is courted by Petruchio, and the real fun begins.
