"A first-rate entree to the Bard," hailed Publishers Weekly in praise of Bruce Coville's adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dial). Now the author follows with Macbeth, expertly weaving his own dramatic yet accessible prose with language from the play, creating a gateway to the greater enjoyment of the original. Powerful paintings, rich in atmosphere, by renowned artist Gary Kelley—winner of twenty medals from the Society of Illustrators—make this, like its predecessor, a classic in itself, full justice to the genius that came before. A perfect gift for both newcomers to Shakespeare's work as well as devoted followers.

5.0 Macbeth Review
Opening with the prophecies of the three witches always caught my imagination. I love how the story relates to that throughout the play, and also how Macbeth is intrigued that he may indeed become king. It adds a great, dramatic effect. Beginning to end this is a brilliantly written play.

There is a commonly used structural/plotting device in drama whereby the nature of the leading characters are elucidated by their varying responses to the same event/temptation/threat. I'm not sufficient a scholar to know if this approach pre-dates Shakespeare but he certainly used it and it has cer...

3.0 Macbeth by William Shakespeare
I remember enjoying this when I’d read this a couple of years ago, but I’m not exactly sure what happened here.As an antihero, Macbeth sure spends a lot of time not going through with his plans and continuing to chicken out. Paired with him is Lady Macbeth: whereas Macbeth doesn’t have enough guts, ...

5.0 Macbeth
So I borrowed this from the library purely because James Marsters face was on the cover. Let me tell you, it was a nice way to spend 2+ hours listening to Shakespeare: chilling in my cozy chair, cup of tea in hand, cat in lap, and a full screen view of James Marsters brooding face in half-light. Yes...
