Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book!  Jul 9, 2008
The No Fear series allows quick understanding! I was going back and forth between reading the original first, and reading the modern first. Either way I read it, it made it easier to understand, faster to read, and very enjoyable.
 
No Fear Shakespeare is awesome!  Nov 20, 2007
I discovered the No Fear Shakespeare series at Barnes and Noble two years ago. I have gradually purchased copies of different plays. I bought A Midsummer Night's Dream from this site in order to reach my $25 purchase to qualify for free shippng and handling.

I am well able to read Shakespeare's original English thanks to great literature teachers in high school, but it is lovely having modern English side by side. I think that high schools should be able to carry the No Fear Shakespeare series for English and Literature classes as this would help students who have not been exposed to classical literature.

 
Good for my teen's drama class  Nov 17, 2007
My teen joined a drama class two months ago, and the class is performing "A Midsummer Night's Dream". This is the book needed for this particular class, and it did help clear up some possible questions in the script. However, I did find that some things were over-translated; for example, in one scene, there is a mention made about false beards being the color of French crowns(either royalty, heads, or both), and a joke is made that some French crowns have no hair, but it is left at that. But the Plain English translation goes into a little *too* much detail, and mentions that it is because of syphilis. While this might be implied by the original statement, it does not actually mention this nowhere in the original play, and could confuse students; not to mention that the translation's statement could be a bit inappropriate. I still suggest that you learn the vocabulary, and study Shakespeare's language, but this is a good aid if you get stuck, and can help an actor or actress truly understand their characters.
 
no fear shakespear a mid summers night dream  May 12, 2007
This book is very useful if you are reading this play for a class. Sometime a word or line is switched but other than that it's been very helpful.
 
Very Helpful Book  Oct 20, 2005
This book is great. It does a great job of breaking down the text of "Midsummer" and telling what it really means. On one page is the actual text of the play; On the direct opposite page is the translation. The only translation I've found so far that is way out there is the translation of "Tary rash wanton...." The translation is "Wait a minute, you brazen hussy...." Now, HOW is that an understandable translation?? This is the only thing that puts a damper on a perfect score. While I was in a production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," our director frequently had us refer to the book to figure out what in the world we were saying. I highly reccommend buying this book.
