Note Includes index.
Summary Presents a version of Shakespeare's tragedy about the eleventh-century Scottish king; rewritten as fiction for young readers. Witches with magical omens, murder most foul, the quest for power at all costs, bloody and spectacular battles, this modern retelling of Macbeth, enhanced with superbly evocative full color art throughout, captures all the drama of Shakespeare's classic play. Written by an outstanding scholar, the language is simple yet eloquent, and draws young readers into the story with superb dialogue, vivid description, and careful attention to the flow of events. The skillful blending of Shakespeare's own lines with modern language and illuminating information enhances youngsters' involvement and comprehension. There's background on Shakespeare and the play, answers to FAQs, and a who's who of the characters. Young Reader's Shakespeare is a powerful visual and reading experience.
