Who would have ever thought of Shakespeare as light reading? Yet here are his plays, complete, in an entirely new dimension, or even a new paradigm. For the novels present Shakespeare in an entirely new way, with plots, characters and motivations not only clearly delineated but still charged with the storytelling power of the greatest author of all time. "Notes" and synopses cannot touch the novels when it really comes to understanding all aspects of Shakespeare. While the plays were translated into novels principally for the student, first-time teacher, actor and play-goer, they are also aimed at the general reader long since finished with his or her schooling, as the novels are perfect for anyone with a burning ambition for a more complete knowledge of Shakespeare. Thanks to the novelization, anyone can read and thoroughly understand any play without resort to a course in English lit. There's positively no better way to learn Shakespeare, to know all the plays or to quickly become a credible critic!
