Reading a modern English version of Shakespeare just isn’t the same. But, uh, not understanding what on earth he’s saying isn’t so great either. Shmoop’s Shakespeare in Modern English gives you the best of both worlds: read the original text right alongside a modern English translation and summary.
Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.
We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
