    An excellent biography of this Macedonian Greek Queen of Egypt. Cleopatra was one of the last of the Ptolemies, a royal line descended from a general of Alexander the Great. Notable for her determination, intelligence, and beauty, she almost succeeded in her goal of unifying the world under her rule. This captivating account by Diane Stanley follows her tumultuous life from the beginning of her rule at age 18 to her death in defeat at age 39. It also explains much about the ambitions of Julius Caesar as well as the downfall of Mark Antony - two men totally devoted to this strong-willed queen.

    Shakespeare can be a tough read, but when you can see the characters with all of their emotions and the actions, it starts to make a lot more sense for the reader. Including only the most relevant scenes, this 5-in-1 Shakespeare collection does an amazing job of visually demonstrating some of his most popular plays. The dialogue is in the original voice with a modern version as a footnote and sometimes in the graphic panel itself. I found myself completely ignoring the translation because the images were so dramatic and engaging! It doesn't look like a modern comic book. The colors are subdued and there are no super powers. The 5 plays include: Hamlet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. 191pp, 8" x 11" pb. ~ Sara

    Many great people and many great times throughout the history of the world have been remembered through speeches. It's easy to think of some of these in the modern times – Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," Richard Nixon's speech to astronauts on the moon, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, and Winston Churchill's "Their Finest Hour," for example. Perhaps not so easy to name are some of those speeches that have held their place in time throughout the centuries – such speeches as Julius Caesar's "On the Treatment of the Conspirators," Socrates on his condemnation and death, Danton's "To Dare Again, Ever to Dare!" and Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms. Divided into seven parts, the 292 speeches in this book are drawn from: Earlier Times (Ancient Greece and Rome, Great Britain and Ireland, the early United States, Canada, South America, South Africa, India, and China), Recent Times (US domestic affairs, world affairs and WWII, and US affairs and WWII), Modern Times (US government, international affairs, and the United Nations), Informal Speeches (of the last two centuries), Important Speeches of the Sixties, Speeches by Black Americans, and Speeches from the period 1974 – 1997. From Pericles and Isocrates to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, and the Earl of Spencer, these speeches are a great resource for history, inspiration, quotations, and much more. Speeches are indexed by topic, by nationality, and by speaker for ease of reference. ~ Zach

    This book contains two of Virgil's most revered poems, translated into English for easy reading. This thrift edition comes at a great price and includes the complete unabridged translation of both the Eclogues and the Georgics by James Rhoades. The Eclogues is the story of simple shepherds struggling with unrequited love while tending their flocks amid the civil war following Julius Caesar's assassination. The Georgics rejoices in Italy and the country's beauty, values of rustic piety, pleasures of family life, and the vitality of the Italian people. Two great poems in one handy book. 100 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Here's all the material you need for teaching Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and The Tempest. It all begins with brief biographical information about Shakespeare and a look at Shakespeare's London. For each play, there are act-by-act summaries (by scene), followed by lessons on the characters, themes, and Shakespeare's language, along with a quiz for each act. After working through the play, there's a final test and a good selection of supplementary activities. Some of these are short and simple, others are full-blown projects; some are research-oriented, others will appeal to the artist. Updated and revised teacher notes focus on historical background and fascinating language facts. Reproducible, answers included.

       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.

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
