Overview

No Fear Shakespeare Graphic Novels is a series based on the translated texts of the plays found in No Fear Shakespeare. The original No Fear series made Shakespeare’s plays much easier to read, but these dynamic visual adaptations are impossible to put down. Each of the titles is illustrated in its own unique style, but all are distinctively offbeat, slightly funky, and appealing to teen readers. Each book will feature:

  • Illustrated cast of characters
  • A helpful plot summary
  • Line-by-line translations of the original play
  • Illustrations that show the reader exactly what’s happening in each scene—making the plot and characters even clearer than in the original No Fear Shakespeare books

    Great way for reluctant or low readers to enjoy Hamlet

    I used this book with a high school class of very low and reluctant readers with great success. They enjoyed the illustrations and were able to summarize each act. Some of the students even did their own illustrations in summary.
    It made the Shakespeare Unit enjoyable for all rather than a time both my students and I could not wait to get through. Some of the students even asked to read other Shakespeare plays in this format.

    Hamlet (SparkNotes 1 Hour Shakespeare)

    My take on this book is that it is beautiful, by any examination. It was beautifully written (What a rarity these days), beautifully illustrated (I fell in love with this series), and beautifully designed (I love the care that went into this book). Maybe I just think visually like these authors. Hopefully you will like this book, too. It's impact on my grade was enormous. But, most of all, it's unique, beautiful content helped give me a deeper appreciation for Shakespeare's beauty.

    Hamlet (SparkNotes 1 Hour Shakespeare)

    I don't know about others, but this book rocked my understanding of Hamlet! I finally understand who is who and their motivations...this was always hard for me in other classes. Hamlet's family, Polonius's family, and Fortinbras's family all make sense to me now. The background was actually useful for my essay, especially the info on the Comitatus society. I recommend this book highly!!!!!!

    Atrocious

    I was shocked at the low quality and lack of clarity in this book. After reading the original play, I hoped this book would help me understand some of the deeper complexities of the characters- but it only confused me even further. And how was Fortinbras completely overlooked? I expected far, far better from Sparknotes.

    Cool illustrations really helped me learn Hamlet

    If you want a great overview of every element of Hamlet, this is your book! I loved the character drawings and descriptions; the Plot chapter explained the story of Hamlet better than any book I've ever studied for any literature (there is even a graphic timeline); the Scene by Scene chapter really summerized the play for me and the drawings in that chapter were great for 'seeing' what happend. At last I 'get' Hamlet! Thanks again, SparkNotes!
