The Modern Shakespeare provides Shakespeare's original plays plus modern English translations everyone can understand. Delight in the richness of Shakespeare without ever getting bogged down by archaic and incomprehensible language. The Modern Shakespeare makes it easy to read the original play and the modern translation simultaneously, or to choose to read just the original or just the translation on their own. In addition, each edition provides useful background information about the literary and historical context of the play, a detailed character list, and explanations of the themes and symbols that are critical to understanding the play.
