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