Discussion questions, background information, and a modern English version accompany the original text of Shakespeare's play of ambition, murder, and revenge

Barron's Educational Publishing
Here are the books that help teach Shakespeare plays without the teacher constantly needing to explain and define Elizabethan terms, slang, and other ways of expression that are different from our own. Each play is presented with Shakespeare's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand "translation" on the facing right-hand page. All dramas are complete, with every original Shakespearian line, and a full-length modern rendition of the text.

I'm mentoring a couple of students who have to read Macbeth as an assignment. The contemporary language on the right side of the book helps both me and the student(s) to understand what Shakespeare is trying to communicate to the reader.
