Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare (A Shakespeare Made Easy book) (Homeschool subjects covered: Shakespeare, classic literature)
In Much Ado About Nothing, (Shakespeare Made Easy) one of Shakespeare's most engaging romantic comedies, Benedick is amused to learn that his friend Claudio plans to marry the lovely noblewoman Hero. Benedick, who insists that he will never get married, soon finds himself constantly quarreling with sharp-tongued Beatrice, Hero's beautiful cousin. The plot thickens when the scheming Don John slanders Hero in a spiteful attempt to bring unhappiness to the lovers. Finally a grand masquerade ball provides the setting for an amusing muddle of mistaken identities. True love triumphs at last for Claudio and Hero--and also for Beatrice and Benedick.
Shakespeare Made Easy: Here are the books that help teach Shakespeare plays without the teacher constantly needing to explain and define Elizabethan terms, slang, and other ways of expression that are different from our own. Each play is presented with Shakespeare's original lines on each left-hand page, and a modern, easy-to-understand "translation" on the facing right-hand page. All dramas are complete, with every original Shakespearian line, and a full-length modern rendition of the text. These invaluable teaching-study guides also include:
1. Helpful background information that puts each play in its historical perspective.
2. Discussion questions that teachers can use to spark student class participation, and which students can use as springboards for their own themes and term papers.
3. Fact quizzes, sample examinations, and other features that improve student comprehension of what each play is about.
Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare is required reading in Illuminations and Tapestry of Grace.
