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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torment Saver May 15 2011
By Noble Lion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Had to read this for school and started out reading the original language (I can hardly consider Shakespearean English the language that I speak). Very frustrating. I read Act I, Scene II in the original and it took me a long time to read and I could barely made out what was happening. I found this book's text online at SparksNotes and when I read the same scene in the translation it was like I had understood something completely different than what I had understood from the original.

So I got the book. Makes this play easy to read and entertaining and it saved me hours of torment trying to read what had previously seemed like Chinese.

Highly recommended. The original text side-by-side with the translation is a great feature. Funny cover art.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!
