Here are the books that help teach Shakespeare plays without the teacher constantly needing to explain and define Elizabethan terms, slang, and other ways of expression that are different from our own. Each play is presented with Shakespeare's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand translation on the facing right-hand page. All dramas are complete, with every original Shakespearian line, and a full-length modern rendition of the text. These invaluable teaching-study guides also include:
- Helpful background information that puts each play in its historical perspective.
- Discussion questions that teachers can use to spark student class participation, and which students can use as springboards for their own themes and term papers.
- Fact quizzes, sample examinations, and other features that improve student comprehension of what each play is about.
