    Shakespeare Made Simple  Oct 28, 2008
    I'm a lifelong Shakespeare fan who has recently discovered the No Fear series of "translations" of the plays. Although I had considered myself comfortable with Elizabethan dialect, I've learned a lot from the No Fear
    books. However, especially in Romeo and Juliet, one is struck by how the
    pleasure in reading the play is in the language, not the plot. Side-by-side with modern English, Shakespeare's poetry is even more luminous.
     
    Alternate version for teaching R&J  Jun 12, 2008
    Graphic novels have often been thought of as less than appropriate in the high school classroom - but I say use whatever works to get students to read and pique their interest on a subject. Most high school students dread Shakespeare, even his best known work - Romeo & Juliet. Last year I used two graphic versions to teach the play, this one and a manga alternative. This graphic novel used a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's language - so it is easier to read and understand - great for a struggling class that might normally avoid reading the play altogether. We're ordering more for my school next year. The one thing that would help this version is having it in color - it is a black and white graphic novel. Students really responded and I was amazed how many actually read their homework assignments! A great resource, whether you use it to teach or have it for struggling students, it does the job well!
     
    No Fear Shakespeare  May 20, 2008
    This is an excellent book for anyone who has trouble with reading and interpreting shakespears work. My son's teacher recommended it.He had to read Romeo & Juliet but there are other books as well.

    Caveat Emptor  Feb 20, 2008
    The concept of adapting a Shakespeare play into the graphic novel format is at the very least a worthwhile endeavor. A successful attempt could bridge the widening gap between the generation that read the works of the Bard in the classroom without any significant visual aid and those who are more attuned to visual accompaniment to their stories. Shakespeare never wrote his plays to be read as words on a page without a visual attached, so already this sounds like a good idea.

    The illustrations are modern and accessible, and while the text isn't the same as what Shakespeare wrote, it is translated sensibly, and the edits are pretty smooth.

    But who's this best suited for? The graphic novel format may lead one to believe that anyone who's capable of following illustrated stories (comic books, manga, animated programs, etc.) will be able to comprehend the story, but this is not the case. Despite a good translation, the story is still just as intricate, carefully crafted and multi-layered as the original. Perhaps a more "dumbed down" translation would have benefitted the graphic novel concept, since some of the longer speeches (including Queen Mab) are woefully ill suited to this type of format.

    Also, and this is mostly a warning to parents of junior high and high school students, some of Shakespeare's bawdiest jokes and sexual puns are spelled out quite graphically in the translation. This book is not rated, but I would NOT recommend it be published with a warning about this!

    Recommended only for fans of the play who want to see an old favorite from a different angle. NOT recommended for anyone who expects an easy path to understand the play (which should be seen live or via DVD, ideally--even a poorly performed play is better than a play without any performance at all) .
