This unique translation is not a literal-minded prose version. It retains the feel and the rhythm of the original, letting you experience the play in the same enjoyable way an Elizabethan audience did. The text is immediately clear to today's readers, making those tedious footnotes unnecessary. You'll find easy-to-follow line numbering, and a glossary of place names and mythological references.
Are you a high school or junior-college student working on an assignment? Do you wish to preview the play before a performance, or are you perhaps learning English as a Second Language? This translation is ideal for you. You will never again hesitate to read The Tragedy of Macbeth because you're mystified by such lines as, "...keep my bosom franchised." The facing page of this edition of Macbeth makes clear what Shakespeare meant, "... keep my conscience free." The translation reads like a modern book...and it's fascinating.

Macbeth is basically a tragedy about a man that kills a man with a small little dagger. The name of the man that he kills is named Duncan. The man that he has someone else kill is named Banquo. After the person kills Banquo he can't ever stop thinking about the death of him. It haunts him like no other and finally he can't take it no more.
The parallel is a negative resource because I think it confuses a lot of people and a lot of people don't know what the heck it is even saying. It can also be used as a positive way because if your teacher wants you to read the Shakespeare then bam it are right there. But like again a lot of people don't even know how to read the Shakespeare version but if you look on the other page the regular version is there so it's pretty nice.
