These texts are great for anyone challenging Shakespeare. The side-by-side text of original and modern language makes the interpretation of this great play so much easier.

No Fear Shakespeare Julius Caesar July 5 2008
By Milton P. Thornton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an older adult that is somewhat isolated I started the study of Shakespeare on my own with just a big book that had annotaions that were often more cofusing than enlightening. It was rewarding but it was like plowing through a field full of big rocks. I found reading two or three scenes of an act with No Fear Shakespeare and then reading the corresponding section of Asimov's Guide to Shakespeare great fun. No Fear explains the nuances of language and setting while Asimov gives rich insight to the characters and events that makes it so easy to remember the varied characters and plot twists.

I found this method makes Shakespeare infinitely more easy to not only get through but savor and enjoy. My plan is to get as much of No Fear Shakespeare as I can including all the plays that I have gone through so laboriously in the past and apply the No Fear/Asimov technique. I hope it works as well for you as it did for me.

Excellent resource March 10 2007
By Nikki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I teach high school students and must say that this book has been a valuable resource throughout our unit on Julius Caesar. My students are finally grasping what is being read and have really enjoyed the reading thus far. If only there had been a reference tool around like this when I was in school!!! The title is absolutely right, there is No Fear in reading Shakespeare any longer.

Perfect! Sept. 24 2011
By Whitney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I needed this book for school, but was given only a weekend to read (and comprehend) the whole thing. Obviously because it is a play, it is more than possible to read in just a few hours. However the old English can be difficult to sift through unless you put some serious time and effort into it. So, I bought the No-Fear Shakespeare because it has a "modern day translation" that parallels each page of Shakespearian and is extremely useful when you are a little lost with what's going on. There are also occasional side notes that explain ambiguous references that the characters make. I've used No-Fear before and HIGHLY recommend it!

Learning Made Easy March 31 2012
By helen - Published on Amazon.com

No Fear Shakespeare was a tremendous help in understanding the play, Julius Caesar. To read Shakespeare in plain English made it easy to take the leap to reading the play in the original language. The side-by-side Shakespearean language next to the plain English translation was especially helpful.

Good Homework Helper July 8 2012
By Amanda O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased Julius Caesar No Fear Shakespeare as a study aide while reading Caesar. The text includes Shakespeare's original language on one page and a translation into modern language on the opposite page. There are multiple ways to use this resource: reading the original text and translation simultaneously, reading the translation only when sections are unclear, or reading the translation before reading the original text of the play. I recommend using any of these three methods an act (or a scene) at a time. I suppose if you really wanted to you could read only the translation, but I don't recommend it. Some of those great Elizabethan puns (and consequently some of the meaning) would be lost and you would be missing out on some good stuff. Used alone or in conjunction with other resources such as summaries on Spark Notes, this is a very helpful resource for understanding Shakespeare.
