Half the Page is a Stage™ with The WordPlay™ Shakespeare Series. This revolutionary eBook gives reader/viewers a new way to learn and love Shakespeare.
On the left page, you see Shakespeare’s text. On the right page - you see a professional filmed performance of the play. Not just short clips - the whole play.
Now teachers, students, and life long learners can finally see the play, read it, understand it - and enjoy it!
Easily the best Shakespeare book I’ve ever seen and read, since there is an entire film of the play next to the words. It instantly makes Shakespeare understandable, instantly engages my son, and instantly takes away all the confusion he has when reading such books. And it gets better - not only does he understand it more easily, but he really enjoyed the play. I hope WordPay makes Hamlt soon!
An amazing reading experience like nothing I’ve experienced before. You get the text of the full play, and right next to it, a full, brilliantly clear performance of the text by professional actors. It’s amazing to read the words and watch the performance on the same page, and it opens your eyes to what Shakespeare was (and is) saying. Just amazing. More please!
Now that's impressive.
The story and text are so clear and the production value and editing excellent.
It moves swiftly and is engaging to adults (me) as well as kids (10 and 13) who weren't familiar with the story at all. They watched the whole thing (!) and got the beauty as well as the horrible and moving truths of this timeless story -while enjoying the language and the excellent sword fights. Wow. Thank you. More please.
