presents Shakespeare in MODERN English!

Shakespeare's 400 year old plays have finally been translated into TODAY'S ENGLISH so that modern man (and woman) can understand them--and students can face their final exams with confidence!

Walter Saunders, English professor and published poet, opens the door of time by allowing us to read Shakespeare without being English professors ourselves!

William Shakespeare lived more than 400 years ago yet his profound insights into human nature are still quoted today. This is because people don't change--but the language we speak does. "The evil that men do lives after them," is still understandable today, but most of us need help with lines like "Shall of a corn cry woe," and help has been hard to find--until NOW! Saunders successfully preserves the integrity and poetic beauty of Shakespearian works using English that we can all understand. Teachers and students in Europe and South Africa have been appreciative of his versions of Romeo and Juliet; Julius Caesar; A Midsummer Night's Dream; The Tempest; Othello; The Merchant of Venice; (see their comments) and now others, including the general public, can purchase them through this website where Shakespeare 2000 is proud to announce the addition of King Lear, Macbeth, and Twelfth Night translated into modern English side-by-side with the full original Shakespeare text for quick easy reference!
