by William Shakespeare, Edited by Alan Durband
Shakespeare's much loved comedy of shipwreck and lovesickness, mistaken identity and punctured pride, unfolds in plain everyday English. Viola's wittiness, Malvolio's pomposity and the drunken revelries of Sir Toby Belch and his sidekick all become clear in this straightforward modern version.
This wonderful presentation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night features the play's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand "translation" on the facing right-hand page. This invaluable teaching-study guide also includes:
1. Helpful background information that puts each play in its historical perspective.
2. Discussion questions that teachers can use to spark student class participation, and which students can use as springboards for their own themes and term papers.
3. Fact quizzes, sample examinations, and other features that improve student comprehension of what each play is about.
