Read Shakespeare’s plays in all their brilliance—and understand what every word means!
Don’t be intimidated by Shakespeare! These popular guides make the Bard’s plays accessible and enjoyable.
Each No Fear guide contains:
• The complete text of the original play
• A line-by-line translation that puts the words into everyday language
• A complete list of characters, with descriptions
• Plenty of helpful commentary
NOT optimized for iPad, poor translation
Navigation is very poor. Chapter titles have blank icon holders. Tapping on a chapter title does not navigate to that chapter. This app lacks the adjustable text size feature, making the tiny thumbnails at the bottom useless. To make matters worse the translation is weak. In their effort to make the everyday translation accessible the authors spent little or no time trying to understand the metaphors or figurative meanings inherent in Shakespeare's writing. And the notes which were promised? An occasional note in he margin. Don't waste your time or money.
