What's New in Version 1.2
Updated meta data and introduction
I've been looking for a Shakespeare version that helps me understand what is going on -and here it is. The actors are phenomenal, the language is ] clear as a bell, and so for that matter is the entire play. Yes, I know the basic ideas behind Macbeth - Scotland, long ago, bad things happen, everyone dies - but the subtleties of the language really come out in this version - at last I'm beginning to see what all the fuss is about about! Very clever way to present Shakespeare, and bravo to the actors. Will would be proud!
This "book" is unbelievable! It has the full text of Shakespeare's play *and* a full film of the play, side by side - it looks like the actors are literally on the page, which makes the language far easier to understand! and it gets better - there's a complete modern English translation one tap away, so that you can pop up the translation, check your understanding, and then go right back to the original. Mind blowing - I wish I'd had this when I was a student. More please!
The Shakeshaft of The FUTURE ...
This new production of Macbeth takes the Great Scot into the Twenty-first century with a wallop! This is the future of what was once all the globe itself and this will become the new venue for such drama. I-books are becoming a hybrid of the MOOC and the e-book and The New Book Press has translated Shakespeare into this new setting, a stage for entertainment and for learning that will transform how literacy and drama and education fuse in our new century ... Visually stunning, acoustically sharp as a dagger, and emotionally satisfying, this is an historic production that would make Maestro William very happy indeed!
