Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
Twentyfirst Century Shakespeare is a new and exciting approach that opens up Shakespeare to a new generation of students. The text is the full traditional Shakespearean text presented in a more familiar, friendly, helpful format. If you are a student you will probably find reading Shakespeare easier than you thought possible. You will be able to read through scenes more quickly, more fluently and with greater understanding. The notes in the margins make things easier by shedding light on tricky words and phrases. You do still have to do some work but you will be surprised by how quickly you can become familiar with Shakespearean English. This is warm fuzzy Shakespeare designed to make your life a little easier. But don't take my word for it, open the book and take a look inside. If you are teaching Shakespeare you will hear your students read with more fluency and confidence, with greater expression and comprehension. This edition can save you so much time and energy. You can concentrate on developing your student's breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding. You can cover more ground and concentrate on what you feel is most important. You can help your students make a real connection with Shakespeare. Take a look inside and see how Twentyfirst Century Shakespeare can make life easier in your classroom. This book evolved from my experience in the classroom. The students I taught were used to reading other plays and came to Shakespeare with a genuine enthusiasm and a willingness to participate in a classroom reading. To be fair, they had no trouble reading the short exchanges but they did struggle when confronted with longer passages. At first I assumed that the problem lay in the language - unfamiliar vocabulary, archaic grammar and syntax and the sheer complexity of Shakespeare's verse. But many students also struggled with longer passages that weren't intrinsically difficult - just long. The solution came to me when I realised that they were reading to the rhythm of the blank verse, ignoring intonation, punctuation and meaning. I knew that actors often use the technique of marking their scripts at each punctuation mark. This helps them get the sense and structure of a speech. I wondered if this would also work in the classroom. So I reformatted the blank verse into lines based on meaning rather than iambic pentameters. I also paragraphed the longer speeches to give a more modern, less daunting look and feel. It worked. In fact it worked like magic. Since then I have added annotations to help with difficult words and phrases; stage directions that indicate who the speaker is speaking to and other features unique to these editions. But Shakespeare re-formatted is the essence of Twentyfirst Century Shakespeare. When I was a school boy, many years ago, only Grammar school pupils read Shakespeare in the UK. Even so, many of these brightest of pupils were turned off Shakespeare. Many of my generation found Shakespeare boring. Now we have an educational system in which all pupils, regardless of academic ability are expected to make some sort of sense of at least one Shakespeare play. The least we owe them is a text they can read. And who knows, they may even enjoy it. Many people find that removing the strait-jacket of blank verse makes the plays easier to read. They also find that it liberates the dramatic spirit of the plays and actually enhances the beauty, power and natural rhythms of Shakespeare's language. If blank verse is of primary importance to you, then this book may not be for you. But think about it, if we can give students a way in to Shakespeare, if they can get a grasp of what's going on, if they can tune in to the language and if they can breathe life and drama into their readings, they may well develop an enjoyment of and even a passion for Shakespeare. Twentyfirst Century Shakespeare is the way forward. Twentyfirst Century Shakespeare is Shakespeare for the twenty first century.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

One of the great Shakespearean tragedies, "Macbeth" is a dark and bloody drama of ambition, murder, guilt, and revenge. Prompted by the prophecies of three mysterious witches and goaded by his ambitious wife, the Scottish thane Macbeth murders Duncan, King of Scotland, in order to succeed him on the throne. This foul deed soon entangles the conscience-stricken nobleman in a web of treachery, deceit, and more murders, which ultimately spells his doom. Set amid the gloomy castles and lonely heaths of medieval Scotland, "Macbeth" paints a striking dramatic portrait of a man of honor and integrity destroyed by a fatal character flaw and the tortures of a guilty imagination.


Recenzii

"The polymathic scholar and translator Burton Raffel not only elucidates baffling terms but offers guidance on the prosody and declamation of Shakespeare's lines, often to subtle effect, which will be useful to actors as well as readers."—Eric Ormsby, New York Sun

Notă biografică

As You Like It is a pastoral comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 and first published in the First Folio in 1623. The play's first performance is uncertain, though a performance at Wilton House in 1603 has been suggested as a possibility.As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.Historically, critical response has varied, with some critics finding the play a work of great merit and some finding it to be of lesser quality than other Shakespearean works. The play remains a favourite among audiences and has been adapted for radio, film, and musical theatre. The piece has been a favourite of famous actors on stage and screen, notably Vanessa Redgrave, Juliet Stevenson, Maggie Smith, Rebecca Hall, Helen Mirren, and Patti LuPone in the role of Rosalind and Alan Rickman, Stephen Spinella, Kevin Kline, Stephen Dillane, and Ellen Burstyn in the role of Jaques. The play is set in a duchy in France, but most of the action takes place in a location called the Forest of Arden. This may be intended as the Ardennes, a forested region covering an area located in southeast Belgium, western Luxembourg and northeastern France, or Arden, Warwickshire, near Shakespeare's home town, which was the ancestral origin of his mother's family-who incidentally were called Arden.Frederick has usurped the duchy and exiled his older brother, Duke Senior. Duke Senior's daughter, Rosalind, has been permitted to remain at court because she is the closest friend and cousin of Frederick's only child, Celia. Orlando, a young gentleman of the kingdom who at first sight has fallen in love with Rosalind, is forced to flee his home after being persecuted by his older brother, Oliver. Frederick becomes angry and banishes Rosalind from court. Celia and Rosalind decide to flee together accompanied by the court fool, Touchstone, with Rosalind disguised as a young man and Celia disguised as a poor lady.As You Like It is a pastora
