Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A dramatic retelling of Shakespeare's 'Scottish play', a heady brew of witchcraft and prophecy, vaulting ambition, murder, guilt and revenge. When witches foretell that Macbeth will be King of Scotland, he will stop at nothing to make the prediction come true. A major world classic made accessible even to reluctant readers. A straightforward narrative in modern English accompanies key excerpts from Shakespeare's original dialog, and difficult words and phrases are explained as they occur. Includes information on the historical background to the play and on Shakespeare's life and work, and a guide to film adaptations of "Macbeth". Graffex is a series of illustrated literary classics retold for young readers. Specially commissioned full-color artwork brings excitement and atmosphere to this classic play. Speech bubbles work with the main text to emphasize and enhance the retelling.
Series created and designed by David Salariya.
