More About William Shakespeare & John Crowther

William Shakespeare William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1564, and his birth is traditionally celebrated on April 23. The facts of his life, known from surviving documents, are sparse. He was one of eight children born to John Shakespeare, a merchant of some standing in his community. William probably went to the King s New School in Stratford, but he had no university education. In November 1582, at the age of eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior, who was pregnant with their first child, Susanna. She was born on May 26, 1583. Twins, a boy, Hamnet ( who would die at age eleven), and a girl, Judith, were born in 1585. By 1592 Shakespeare had gone to London working as an actor and already known as a playwright. A rival dramatist, Robert Greene, referred to him as an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers. Shakespeare became a principal shareholder and playwright of the successful acting troupe, the Lord Chamberlain s Men (later under James I, called the King s Men). In 1599 the Lord Chamberlain s Men built and occupied the Globe Theater in Southwark near the Thames River. Here many of Shakespeare s plays were performed by the most famous actors of his time, including Richard Burbage, Will Kempe, and Robert Armin. In addition to his 37 plays, Shakespeare had a hand in others, including Sir Thomas More and The Two Noble Kinsmen, and he wrote poems, including Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. His 154 sonnets were published, probably without his authorization, in 1609. In 1611 or 1612 he gave up his lodgings in London and devoted more and more time to retirement in Stratford, though he continued writing such plays as The Tempest and Henry VII until about 1613. He died on April 23 1616, and was buried in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford. No collected edition of his plays was published during his life-time, but in 1623 two members of his acting company, John Heminges and Henry Condell, put together the great collection now called the First Folio."

William Shakespeare lived in Stratford-Upon-The Avon. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and died in 1616.

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.
