Publisher Description:

"A first-rate entree to the Bard," hailed Publishers Weekly in praise of Bruce Coville's adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dial). Now the author follows with Macbeth, expertly weaving his own dramatic yet accessible prose with language from the play, creating a gateway to the greater enjoyment of the original. Powerful paintings, rich in atmosphere, by renowned artist Gary Kelleywinner of twenty medals from the Society of Illustratorsmake this, like its predecessor, a classic in itself, full justice to the genius that came before. A perfect gift for both newcomers to Shakespeare's work as well as devoted followers.
