End your struggle with the Bard's prose and indulge in a romantic comedy that's better than a soap opera. Shakespeare on the Double! Twelfth Night includes an easy-to-understand modern English translation alongside the original Shakespearian text so that you can read only the translation, read the translation with the original text, or tackle the original text, referring only to the translation when you're stumped. A comprehensive character list describes the traits of each major character, a visual map depicts relationships, and review questions reinforce important information so you won't miss the action.

Twelfth Night is a play about disguises, love, and loss. I had to read this play in grade 9, and had to do a dramatization from one scene. It was a bit confusing because I don't really understand the shakespearean language. This book has the translations written as well so if you ever have a reading assignment, the translations will benefit you a lot! I really liked the story of this play and the plot. The humor isn't very funny because I did not get it, but people back then may have loved it! I did enjoy this play and did find it surprising at times. Shakespeare is a famous playwright and an actor whose plays are very deep and some are about romance as well. I guess this play isn't that bad if you know how to understand the shakespearean language. 3.5/5
