    Outstanding Recording

    I am an English teacher. I don't know how I would have survived without this audio-recording. It is wonderful! Love Lady Macbeth's Scottish accent!

    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.

    Seven

    Seven laid on the moss padding of Orpheus' den. Her ember eyes remained closed as she now entered her third day of slumber. Cobwebs covered just abour her entire right side, due to a badger attack. One of her ears was almost completely ripped off, although cobwebs made the grusome sight a bit more bareable to the faint of heart. It was estimated in a few hours, Orpheus would need to change out her cobwebs.

    Orpheus

    He looks up and flicks an ear at the black she-cat. "Seven is asleep now, she hasn't been awake in three days." He informs her quietly as he gathers up fresh cobwebs for her wounds. "You may come in and see her of you wish."

    A small apprentace-aged cat pads in. She is limping because the flesh on her front left paw is torn. Her white tail is stained red and is missing a lot of fur. Also, her ear is bent and leaking thin blood. "Help..." she croaks.
