Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

William Shakespeare is widely considered the greatest writer in the history of the English language, so renowned and respected that the time period in which he lived is often known as the Age of Shakespeare. Indeed, his genius is questioned only by those who doubt the authenticity of his authorship of timeless classics like Romeo and Juliet. As Ben Jonson once put it, "He was not of an age, but for all time.” No other writer, in English or in any other language, can rival the appeal that Shakespeare has enjoyed around the world, and nobody’s had a bigger influence.

The “Bard of Avon” has a catalogue full of the best known plays and poetry in history. His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, and in his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies. Even those who have never read works like Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, or Hamlet are instantly familiar with the names.

Although his works are so well known, major details of his life are still sketchy. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and even whether the works attributed to him were written by others.

This edition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of history’s greatest playwright.

    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.

    Silentfoot and Hooleflare

    Silentfoot pads into the den she shared with Hooleflare. Her belly had swollen a bit, and she tried to act normal by sorting her herbs.<p>

    Hooleflare looks over. "Hi, Silentfot," he meows, not noticing anything wrong. "Back so soon?"

    Mynt

    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.

    Silentfoot

    Silentfoot quickly searches her herb stores. She cleans Elmpaw's cut and applies a marigold-goldenrod poultice to it, binding it with cobwebs. She fetches a soaked mossball and a vole and gives them to him, squeezing some water into his mouth. Then she moves on to Mynt. "Don't worry, I'll help you both," she assures. She cleans Mynt's wounds, being extra gentle with her paw. She rubs some crushed marigold on Mynt's ear and tail wounds, binding them in cobwebs. Then she mixes well-crushed dried oak leaves into a marigold-goldenrod poultice and carefully applies it to the cat's paw, gently binding it in cobwebs. She gives her two small poppyseeds. "Eat these," she instructs, "they'll numb your pain, but will also make you sleepy." She gives one poppyseed to Elmpaw, knowing he didn't need as strong of a dose.

    Dropsoul

    Dropsoul looks at her, schocked for a moment. Then, her surprise turns to excitement and happiness. "Oh, StarClan!" She gasps, a wide grin spreading on her face. "This is...this is amazing! I'm going to have kits!" She smiles even wider at another thought. "I'd better get back to camp and tell Moonstorm! Thank you fr you help, Silentfoot! Thak you so much!" She heaves to her paws, lumbering towards the entrance. "Until next time," she mews, and pads back to camp.

    Hooleflare

    "Here, I'll make some nests for you two," Hooleflare offers, pulling together squishy moss and soft feathers to make two nests.
