    Widge, a poor orphan, is commanded by his frightening master to watch Shakespeare's Hamlet and write down the entire play word for word. Widge works himself into the theatre where Shakespeare's cast rehearses and performs, and is taken in by the actors, who treat him as one of their own. As he secretly copies the lines, he begins to wonder if pleasing his master is worth betraying his new friends. See how Widge discovers such things as friendship, family, and home while getting an inside look of the Shakespearean era. 216 pgs. ~ Rachel

       A delightful and extremely helpful resource! This dictionary includes words from twelve of Shakespeare’s most studied and performed plays (Henry V, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night).

      This resource gives much more than definitions. The word entries include: definition (as used in play), part of speech, pronunciation, warning notes (difference in modern meaning), usage notes (word usage), theatre notes (the cultural background), citation (which play and character used this word), related words, and cross references. There are illustrated segments on related topics – armor, swords/daggers, clothing, hats, animals, colors, occupations, ships, recreation, music, and cosmos (constellations and horoscope), and a map of Shakespeare’s Europe. The binding is flexible and slick/glossy with slightly over-the-page-edge extensions. 352 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    A classic retelling of major Shakespearean plays. Although to author Edith Nesbit (author of Railway Children and Five Children and It), the stories are the “least part of Shakespeare,” she wrote this volume to introduce Shakespeare to her own children. Eleven plays are rewritten in an appealing and understandable manner in about 10 pages or less each: The Winter’s Tale; Romeo & Juliet; The Tempest; A Midsummer’s Night Dream; King Lear; Cymbeline; The Taming of the Shrew; Hamlet; Twelfth Night; As You Like It; and Pericles. The stories are a lovely blend of Nesbit’s voice and also maintaining the Shakespearean tone and feel. For example, Petruchio greets Kate with, “Good-morrow, Kate,” and tells her he must marry her. She responds by yelling and saying, Nesbit retorts, “some extremely disagreeable things to him, and, I am sorry to say, ended by boxing his ears.” Plays chosen are more “kid friendly” and difficult-for-kids passages are presented discretely and matter-of-factly without aggrandizing them. 6” x 9”, 117 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Shakespeare at your fingertips, literally. This set really is quite clever. You get 60 characters from well-known plays on 30 cards. The cards have 2 holes to make your fingers the legs. You have 12 backgrounds and a book of classic scenes. What fun to read the scenes while acting out the characters with your fingers. Make sure to add accents and intonation as you play out Antony & Cleopatra, As You Like It, Hamlet, Henry IV, Julius Caesar, King Lear, Macbeth, The Merchant of Venice, The Merry Wives of Windsor, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello, Richard III, Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, The Tempest, Twelfth Night and The Winter's Tale. After you have performed these scenes in your own Knuckleodeon, have a go at the entire play. Shakespeare was written to be performed after all. Add this activity to any unit study of the Bard's work. I like anything that makes something daunting into something less intimidating. ~ Sara

    Continuing their literature series and including many of the characteristics of the Greenleaf Guide to Ancient Literature, this course is designed to provide the first year of a three-year survey of British and American Literature. Again utilizing whole works rather than excerpts, this course includes studies of Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English-Speaking Peoples, Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and selections from the Canterbury Tales and Hamlet (including the modern, worldview-shifting perspective from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead). There are 23 lessons, each expected to take about a week to complete, written directly (and often with a subtle, tongue-in-cheek humor) to the student, leading them to dig deeper into the shades of understanding of the literary piece as well as the culture and worldview of the author. The study guide – really a consumable worktext providing both the questions and plenty of space to write responses – starts with "typical" questions such as vocabulary development and sequence of events, but there is a spiraling intensity as the questions continue that quickly draws out more thoughtful responses. Most of the literature selections are written from a Christian worldview perspective.

    There are occasional writing suggestions (but no writing instruction) and many of the questions could be deepened into essays. Parents are strongly encouraged to read along with the student, and while I always think this is an excellent idea, I tend to be a little irritated when forced to do so: like other Greenleaf guides, there are no answer keys or even talking points provided. Students and parents are on their own in terms of evaluation. With the exception of Hamlet, specific versions (translations) of each work are referenced. We've listed these below. The Medieval Lit Study Package includes each of these books along with the Greenleaf Guide. ~ Janice

    William Shakespeare (1564-1616) is acknowledged as the greatest dramatist of all time. He excels in plot, poetry, and wit, and his talent encompasses the great tragedies of Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth, as well as the moving history plays and the comedies such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, and As You Like It with their magical combination of humor, ribaldry and tenderness. This volume is a reprint of the highly regarded Shakespeare Head Press edition, and it presents all the plays in the chronological order - as far as may be ascertained - in which they were written. It also includes Shakespeare's sonnets and his longer poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucree. A Wordsworth Classic.

    Read the story of Hamlet through the lives of two not-so-important characters. If you've read Shakespeare's play Hamlet, you might not even remember Rozencrantz and Guildenstern. At least, I hardly remembered their roles. However, as you read through this play by Tom Stoppard, you will be introduced to these two men who, on the surface, may have seemed insignificant in Shakespeare's play, but if you look deeper, you see that they played a significant role. These humorous characters are highlighted in this book while Hamlet's dramatic saga is occurring in the background. You will enjoy their interactions with Hamlet and their take on what is happening. Even this re-telling of Hamlet from a different viewpoint cannot change the inevitable fate of these two characters. Reading this play in its original format (complete with stage cues) is entertaining and challenging. Stoppard's writing style is much like Shakespeare's; however, Stoppard is kind enough to spare you from trying to decipher the Old English writing style - this play is presented in a more contemporary English language.
