Riassunto: This edition offers a new way to read and study A Midsummer Night's Dream - without distracting footnotes. A freshly edited version of the original text, incorporating the latest scholarship, appears opposite a modern English translation that parallels the original, line-for-line.
Dall'editore: Are you frustrated by obscure words and unidiomatic phrases in Shakespeare's plays? The new "Access to Shakespeare" series removes the mystery, not the magic, from A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, and makes reading or studying a breeze. This translation of MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM into contemporary English -- alongside the original text -- has modernized the difficult passages and expressions which used to make Shakespeare's language such heavy weather.
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 A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM because you're mystified by lines such as, "You, mistress, all this coil is long of you." The facing page of this edition of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM makes clear what Shakespeare meant, "You, miss, all this trouble is because of you."
The translation reads like a modern book and it's fascinating.
