Compra verificada. I downloadd these to augment our classroom copies of Julius Caesar for my struggling, ESL, and disinterested readers. It has made a difference in their level of understanding and they are anxious to participate in class read-aloud now that they "get it.
There are no spaces in the text, and the modern English is not in a column next to the old English. The printed version has the modern English on the page next to the old English.
I don't see anyplace where I can "return" the e-book. The paper edition doesn't have any spaces between the speakers, so it is difficult to read, even if it were written in a language one could easily understand.
It is not helpful at all for a new reader of Shakespeare or a reader who only read it in high school unwillingly. Of course that might be the reason it sells for the price it does! If you are just starting to read Shakespeare on your own, and want a good starting point, look no further than this Folger Library treatment of his great political drama.
It was the Folger edition of "Julius Caesar" that grabbed me back in the ninth grade, when I was failing all my classes and hardly hitting my assigned reading. This has it all: Indelible characters, hard-hitting action scenes, tricky "what-would-you-do" moments, and text that you can grasp readily thanks to the Folger practice of laying out the tricky parts on the opposite page.
Guess what: There aren't so many "tricky parts" in "Julius Caesar" as you might expect from reading "Hamlet" or even "Midsummer Night's Dream. The great speech everyone remembers, the one which begins "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears," is especially powerful when read in context. It is delivered by the play's most fascinating character, Mark Antony.
At this point in the play, the title character is [Big Spoiler Coming] terminally indisposed, and most of the people who have been doing the talking are fine with this. Then Mark Antony comes on stage, and with that line, and the next several that follow, he effects a tremendous turnabout in the storyline, among the most memorable ever devised.
It's a riveting, passionate, and snarkishly satirical scene, as the cynical-yet-somehow-admirable Mark Antony winds up a crowd of passive Romans into complete bloodlust. The scenes are sharp like that throughout, something that can't always be said of Shakespeare. He's often ambiguous, but seldom as effectively as here. The dilemma of Brutus, who sees a man whose power is going to his head, is one we can relate to, as we see that side of Caesar, too, but is the prescribed cure better than the sickness, or is Brutus just the wrong physician?
We get one unalloyed villain in Cassius, whose very name is snakelike and who seems to operate on Brutus like a proto-Iago, but different readers will come away with different perspectives on his plotting. Looks at the history of Germany in a completely neutral manner, which in a world of ours where polemical literature is fast becoming a norm, is something hard to come by.
What surprised me a bit is its length odd pages and of that, quite a bit are detailed maps and diagrams.
It might not suit a professional history buff but for any layman, this would surely whet their appetite for German history!
