About This Book


Shakespeare's 400-year-old language can be tough to understand...but, with Shakespeare Retold, it's easy!

Written line-by-line in the same iambic pentameter versification of the originals, it offers a contemporary interpretation of the Bard's lines in the same form and pacing.

Quickly understand each character, each plot twist, each convoluted phrase, each befuddling reference. Never get stuck on Shakespeare's language again! A perfect guide for actors, students and the inquisitive, Shakespeare Retold breathes new life into the most intoxicating, beguiling and often frustrating words in the English language.

To be, or not to be, that is the question,

To live, or not live: I have to wonder.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

Would I find greater honour if I suffered

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

The stinging pain wrought by my wretched luck

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

Instead of fighting back against my troubles,

And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;

Which, doing so, would kill me? Death. I'd sleep
