If you have struggled in the past reading Shakespeare, then BookCaps can help you out. This book is a modern translation of A Midsummer Nights Dream.
A Midsummer’s Night Dream was written and first performed in the mid 1590’s. Shakespeare used the device of magic extensively in this early comedy. There are four separate but intertwined plots.
The original text is also presented in the book, along with a comparable version of the modern text.

A young man from a small provincial town moves to London in the late 1580s and, in a remarkably short time, becomes the greatest playwright not of his age alone but of all time. How is an achievement of this magnitude to be explained? Stephen Greenblatt brings us down to earth to see, hear, and feel how an acutely sensitive and talented boy, surrounded by the rich tapestry of Elizabethan life, could have become the world’s greatest playwright.
James D. Mardock’s Introduction provides an extensive discussion of Henry V’s critical and stage histories and explores the play’s complex relationship with other history plays (and with history itself). The appendices provide materials on the play’s historical background and sources, as well as documents on contemporary warfare. Additional materials, including an annotated text of the 1600 quarto (Q1) edition, are available on the Internet Shakespeare Editions website.
A collaboration between Broadview Press and the Internet Shakespeare Editions project at the University of Victoria, the editions developed for this series have been comprehensively annotated and draw on the authoritative texts newly edited for the ISE. This innovative series allows readers to access extensive and reliable online resources linked to the print edition.
