The Lovereading comment:

This graphic novel uses the original Shakespearean text. Fate? Destiny? Or one man's obsession with power? Macbeth is probably the most dramatic of Shakespeare's tragedies. Set against the backdrop of 11th century Scotland with all the drama you'd expect from this gruesome play. Also available are the Macbeth Plain and Quick texts published by Classical Comics. By drawing on a wealth of talented artists and scriptwriters, Classical Comics has ensured each and every book remains faithful to the original works; and by providing alternative text levels, has created a unique, exciting and totally engaging reading experience. There really is something for everyone.

 

Synopsis

Macbeth, Original Text by William Shakespeare


Reviews

This is a fun way of getting into the stories. Plays are not meant to be read but to be seen. The illustrations in these books are an easy way of following what is going on. The genius of Shakespeare is in the language but for some students understanding it can be a struggle. It will be useful for teachers to have three different versions of the text"

- Ian McNeilly, director of the National Association for the Teaching of English
 
"What a marvellous way to bring Shakespeare to new audiences and venues. Bridging 400 years with a graphic pen is brilliant."

- Barbara Romer, founder of The New Globe Theater, New York



About The Author


William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 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.

Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. 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.
