Enjoy four of Shakespeare’s tragedies told with LEGO bricks. Here are Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Julius Caesar enacted scene by scene, captioned by excerpts from the plays. Flip through one thousand color photographs as you enjoy Shakespeare’s iconic poetry and marvel at what can be done with the world’s most popular children’s toy. Watch the brick Hamlet give his famous “To be or not to be” soliloquy, and feel brick Ophelia’s grief as she meets her watery end. Lady Macbeth in brick form brings new terror to “Out, out, damn spot!” and brick Romeo and Juliet are no less star-crossed for being rectangular and plastic. The warm familiarity of bricks lends levity to Shakespeare’s tragedies while remaining true to his original language. The ideal book for Shakespeare enthusiasts, as well as a fun way to introduce children to Shakespeare’s masterpieces, this book employs Shakespeare’s original, characteristic language in abridged form. Though the language stays true to its origins, the unique format of these well-known tragedies will give readers a new way to enjoy one of the most popular playwrights in history.

Who's afraid of William Shakespeare? Just about everyone. He wrote too much and what he did write is inaccessible and elitist. Right? Wrong. "Shakespeare on Toast" knocks the stuffing from the staid old myth of Shakespeare, revealing the man and his plays for what they really are: modern, thrilling and uplifting drama. Actor and author Ben Crystal brings the bright words and colourful characters of the world's greatest hack writer brilliantly to life, handing over the key to Shakespeare's plays, unlocking the so called difficult bits and, astonishingly, finding Shakespeare's own voice amid the poetry. Told in five fascinating Acts, "Shakespeare on Toast" sweeps the cobwebs from the Bard - from his language, his life, his time - revealing both the man and his work to be relevant, accessible and full of beans.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...I am in this earthly world, where to do harm Is often laudable, to do good sometime Accounted dangerous folly. Why then, alas, Do I put up that womanly defence, To say I have done no harm? What are these faces? Enter Murderers First Mur. Where is your husband? 80 L. Macd. I hope, in no place so unsanctified Where such as thou mayst find him. First. Mur. He's a traitor. Son. Thou liest, thou shag-ear'd villain! First Mur. What, you egg! Stabbing him. Young fry of treachery! Exit Lady Macduff, crying "Murder 1" Exeunt Murderers, following her. Scene III England. Before the King's palace Enter Malcolm and Macduff Mai. Let us seek out some desolate shade, and there Weep our sad bosoms empty. Hold fast the mortal sword, and like good men Bestride our down-fallen birthdom. Each new morn New widows howl, new orphans cry, new sorrows Strike heaven on the face, that it resounds As if it felt with Scotland and yell'd out Like syllable of dolor. Mai. What I believe, I'll wail; What know, believe; and what I can redress, As I shall find the time to friend, I will. 10 What you have spoke, it may be so perchance. This tyrant, whose sole name blisters our tongues, Was once thought honest; you have loved him well. He hath not touch'd you yet. I am young; but some-thing You may deserve of him through me, and wisdom To offer up a weak, poor, innocent lamb To appease an angry god. Macd. I am not treacherous. Macd. Let us rather Mai. But Macbeth is. A good and virtuous nature may recoil In an imperial charge. But I shall crave your par That which you are, my thoughts cannot transpose.

Now You Too Can Understand Shakespeare. Modern English side-by-side with original text includes study notes and stage directions. For the first time collected in one volume, Shakespeare's original play side-by-side with an accurate line-by-line modern English translation, along with stage directions, study notes and historical facts to aid understanding. The original innuendos, political satire, puns and bawdy humour are retained, bringing the work to life for scholars, students, actors prepping for a performance, or lovers of the work to enjoy today without flicking back and forth for lengthy explanations. Additional study notes by former QI researcher and translation verified by historical consultant to the BBC and major movie companies. As an eight year old boy, SJ Hills read the first part of a simplified version of Macbeth in a children's comic. He rushed to the library to finish the story only to learn he couldn't understand the original work. So began a lifelong dream of making Shakespeare understandable for all, down the the smallest detail, enlisting the help of the world's most renowned researchers from BBC TV series, QI, to aid him.
