There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again folhers. I am a college adjunct faculty English teacher and I wanted a simple edition with notes for my class to read in the fall. I was going to order 20 of these for the class, but I am so glad I first bought one for myself. The paper edition doesn’t have any spaces between the speakers, either, so it is difficult to read, even if it were written in language my students, mostly college freshmen, could easily understand.
They would give up on this edition. The text folgeds this edition on Amazon did NOT say that there were no notes. I am going to order something else for my class. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. As noted by other reviewers, this edition provides but a fraction of what it promises. Beyond that, it does not even include a dramatis personnae, a hallowed standard for any dramatic work.
Even the ratings provided by Kindle were for other Shakespeare plays. Is there no quality control for works published by Kindle? This was such a sham that it makes me very leery about future fopgers from Kindle, especially for editions with which I am not familiar.
Prime Video Verified Purchase. As an English teacher, teaching Shakespeare can be quite a challenge. For modern students, trying to connect the concepts, theme, and setting of Romeo and Juliet can be quite a challenge.
Keeping them engaged in the struggle of Shakespearean language is even more so. This version macbth the play is accurate and most importantly, entertaining.
We, as a class, will read a portion of the play and then I will show this film to help cement ideas, dialogue, and characters. The students love the film, laugh, and respond better to the play than without! Folgrs never seen anything like that before or since.
That alone marks the film as a masterpiece, and nothing any critic can say is relevant next to that emotional reaction. Those sobbing teenagers are absolute proof that any critic who panned this film is a folgesr. Di’Caprio wasn’t very famous at that point though I believe he’d already been nominated for an oscar for an indy film. Later that night, I had dinner with friends and predicted that this boy would become the biggest star in Hollywood — by tomorrow!
I was off by a couple maccbeth years.
Macbeth | Folger Shakespeare Library
Rare in film history has there been such a perfect casting — Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo. The mythical balcony scene is freshly designed and executed wonderfully, bringing the myth to life before our eyes. But the crowning glory and superpower of this film is the ‘love at first sight’ scene – ironic in that there are no words spoken words being Shakespeare’s amcbeth.
It’s all done with the eyes by the two young genius actors, combined with inspired camera work and the devastating vocal performance of Des’ree. This is one of the most beautiful, greatest, and most powerful scenes in cinematic history.

What is this emotion — love at first sight? It might only happen two or three times in our entire lives. It isn’t real love. So is it just trivial, adolescent silliness? I think it is much more than that — and so did Shakespeare. What is our emotional relationship with our desires that can never be? We’re haunted forever by the impossiblity of perfect love as much as we were ever thrilled by the fantasy of it.
It is a fo,gers. This is probably the worst book I’ve ever received. Characters are not marked. There is no formatting. It is just a wall of text. Get a different copy of this play. I did not want to see this movie for years after its release.
I consider myself a purist where the Bard of Avon is concerned.
Period costumes, true to Shakespeare’s lines, etc. Eventually I watched this and found a gem.
Macbeth: Folger Shakespeare Library Edition (Video ) – IMDb
From the factions portrayed as rival gangs, to the outstanding delivery of the lines. The true crowning jewel is the over the top performance by the inimitable John Leguizamo. As Tibalt, John is amazing. Purchased this as required reading for my sons’ high school literature classes. They juxtapose the traditional play on one side with modern translation on the other They can finally understand what the teacher is actually trying to talk to them about — imagery, figurative language, symbolism and style — in a way they can actually relate to.
Very useful book to expand on why Shakespeare was one of the greatest storytellers of his time. See all 9, reviews.
