Graphic Shakespeare( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Including Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Graphic Shakespeare is a collection of illustrated Shakespeare classics retold as exciting and fast-paced graphic novels for young readers, a format which is particularly popular with reluctant readers. Straightforward narratives in modern English accompany key excerpts from Shakespeare's original dialogue, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. A running glossary at the foot of each page helps young readers with any challenging vocabulary without disrupting their reading experience. Specially commissioned, full-colour, dramatic artwork faithfully represents set-pieces from the plays, and brings excitement and atmosphere to the tales. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasise and enhance the retelling
