Overview

"I feel that I have spent half my career with one or another Pelican Shakespeare in my back pocket. Convenience, however, is the least important aspect of the new Pelican Shakespeare series. Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R. Braunmuller who understand that these are plays for performance as well as great texts for contemplation." (Patrick Stewart)

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Another Signature Shakespeare edition from Sterling, complete with all the features described above. Like Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth is popular play by the Stratford Bard that has a thorny textual history and numerous internal allusions. A classic delivered with majesty.

Publishers Weekly - Audio
Shakespeare's tragedy about the ill-fated thane of Cawdor is brought to life via this one-man interpretation from Alan Cumming. Motivated by his scheming wife, Macbeth lusts for and then takes power, which leads to regicide and his own undoing. Building upon his performance in the audio edition of A.J. Hartley and David Hewson's Macbeth: A Novel, Cumming executes a captivating solo performance of this classic play. With an authentic Scottish accent, Cumming ably embodies Lord Macbeth. He shifts from character to character seamlessly, capturing the tone, attitude, and emphasis of each, while providing an increasing intensity that conveys the reprehensible, irreparable nature of the title character's actions. In addition to embracing the various characters, Cumming's powerful performance even elevates the play's stage directions, which—rather than feeling like crude interruptions to the dialogue—slip in smoothly like the knife used to slay King Duncan. (July)
From the Publisher
"This updated edition of Macbeth reveals thorough research, it is conscientiously annotated, and it appears a superb tool for researchers and students involved in Shakespeare scholarship."
-The Year's Work In English Studies(2010)
Children's Literature - Rita Monteiro
In eleventh century Scotland, Macbeth, a cousin of the reigning King Duncan, is a superb military strategist and general, feared by enemies of the kingdom, a loyal retainer, and leader respected by his peers for his valor and noble qualities. At the peak of sophistication and poetic artistry, Shakespeare's drama Macbeth is a powerful tragedy, built on a compelling plot of actions and consequences. Shakespeare walks his audience into the mind and heart of Macbeth, a charismatic character set to reach the acme of success. Feeding on his boundless ambition, lured by convenient prophecies from the powers of darkness, egged on by a complicit and relentless wife whom he loves deeply, Macbeth chooses a path of ruthless murders and corrosive guilt, to the tragic doom he constructs for himself. Powell creates a graphic novel from the original play, together with Daniel, who has worked as a colorist and an illustrator for comic book publishers. Powell retains the dramatic structure of the original play— five acts—with a two-page illustration in lurid green color, by Daniel. A brief original quotation highlights the main theme of the action. Much of the compelling moral power and beauty of the original incisive dramatic poetry, in fluid iambic pentameter, rich in emotional associations and symbols, occurs as fragmented snippets of text. The power of a skilled animator and artistic colorist will appeal to the imagination and sense of visual beauty, as a clever hook to a stage performance, or reading of Shakespeare's play. In support of this consideration, the book has excellent notes on William Shakespeare, the history of the play, Shakespearean language with examples, discussion questions and writing prompts. There are also notes on the retelling author and illustrators. One earnestly hopes that young readers will go from this text to the cathartic original. A confusing error appears in the text at the top on Page 53. Malcolm discusses his concerns with "Macduff," not "Duncan," who lies cold in his grave. Obtain the other Stone Arch "Shakespeare Graphics" novels: Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. These books will make beautiful gifts, especially for young people interested in writing poetry, dramatic performance and stagecraft, printing, illustrating, animation, film scripts and the colorist's art. They are useful additions to a library for those who enroll in the Fine Arts as major subjects. Reviewer: Rita Monteiro
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Shakespeare's tragedy is brought to life in this studio-recorded full-cast performance starring James Marsters and Joanne Whalley. Marsters's Macbeth is solid, and Whalley turns in a remarkable performance of Lady Macbeth's calculated strength and eventual unraveling. The pacing and delivery of Shakespeare's lines are effective and accurate, and the use of sound to depict setting and action provide the essential cues listeners need. The sound effects and the theatrics of the Weird Sisters are wonderful. Listeners should be familiar with the story prior to listening due to the large number of characters and the lack of stage direction in audio format. A good choice to offer students as a reading companion.—Rebecca Flannery, Lyman Memorial High School, Lebanon, CT

Where the Norweyan banners flout the sky And fan our people cold.
Norway himself, with terrible numbers,
Assisted by that most disloyal traitor,
The Thane of Cawdor, began a dismal conflict,

Curbing his lavish spirit; and to conclude,

    An excellent edition at a great price - incl background material and annotations

    This is a steal for $2. It's not the bare-bones edition you'd expect for this price - it gives the reader a generous amount of additional material on the play, as well as historical background on the life and times of Shakespeare. The formatting is excellent, and the annotations are surprisingly thorough for a budget edition. Highly recommended.

    A TEACHER'S DREAM COME TRUE

    This particular publication of Macbeth is the best thing that's ever happened to my curriculum. I teach this particular Shakespeare play in my sophomore English classes, along with Much Ado About Nothing...my favorite comedy! The fact that the left-hand side of the page contains notes, definitions is invaluable to me as a teacher (saves time from having to explain EVERY SINGLE WORD) and makes the student feel more capable of digesting Shakespeare's language. The introductory notes on Shakespeare's life, the theater, his language, wordplay are all invaluable tools to use in teaching. I now only use this version to teach all Shakespeare plays. Bravo!

    Shakespeare's Best!

    In my senior English class, we are currently reading this, and I seem to be the only person in the entire class who is enthusiastic. To me, this one from Shakespeare is much more easier to understand. A person may think the withches are evil, but the real villain is the diabolique, Lady Macbeth. Her soliloquies are of absolute brilliance and I love the way she makes Macbeth the way he is. What a sap!

    Wonderful Literature

    As a senior of a high school and strong emphasis on literature, I have personally read Macbeth and found it to be of great dramatized action. It defines many points to human nature and consequences to evil doings. In addition to the lessons that can be learned from Macbeth, it is great literature. It contains many motifs, symbols, and themes such as the theme of unchecked ambition. This book is great for the strong intellectual to the teen-age ambition to read violent and entertaining text but with actually lessons that can teach and grow in the minds of all young.
