	Shakespeare's 400-year-old language can be tough to understand...but, with Shakespeare Retold, it's easy!

	Written line-by-line in the same iambic pentameter versification of the originals, it offers a contemporary interpretation of the Bard's lines in the same form and pacing.

	Quickly understand each character, each plot twist, each convoluted phrase, each befuddling reference. Never get stuck on Shakespeare's language again! A perfect guide for actors, students and the inquisitive, Shakespeare Retold breathes new life into the most intoxicating, beguiling and often frustrating words in the English language.

	To be, or not to be, that is the question,
	  To live, or not live: I have to wonder.
	Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
	  Would I find greater honour if I suffered
	The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
	  The stinging pain wrought by my wretched luck
	Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
	  Instead of fighting back against my troubles,
	And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
	  Which, doing so, would kill me? Death. I'd sleep

	"Schools and colleges will stamp and cheer with unrestrained gratitude and delight." - STEPHEN FRY

	"Tackling Hamlet for The Royal Shakespeare Company is arguably the most daunting role for any actor. For me, learning the words was the easy part; interpreting the nuances of the language and breathing life into the performance was brutally tough. James Anthony's Shakespeare, Retold would have helped me immensely. For every line, I'd have had a lyrically identical modern-day translation that I precisely understood, helping reveal the emphasis and punch of each moment of my stage performance. Every actor would benefit from this compelling translation." - PAAPA ESSIEDU
