Overview

Measure for Measure In Plain and Simple English (A Modern Translation and the Original Version) by William Shakespeare

Mercy, justice and truth and their relationship to pride and humility--sound like the themes of a John Grisham novel? Not exactly. But wouldn't it be nice if Shakespeare could be as easy to read as a Grisham novel? Now it can with this modern retelling.

If you have struggled in the past reading Shakespeare, then BookCaps can help you out. This book is a modern translation of Measure for Measure.

The original text is also presented in the book, along with a comparable version of both text.

About the Author

Widely esteemed as the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an actor and theatrical producer in addition to writing plays and sonnets. Dubbed "The Bard of Avon," Shakespeare oversaw the building of the Globe Theatre in London, where a number of his plays were staged, the best-known of which include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth. The First Folio, a printed book of 36 of his comedies, tragedies, and history plays, was published in 1623.
