A Midsummer Night's Dream
Book House, 2010 - 48 Seiten
When fairies, gods and actors meet one night in a supernatural woodland, all heaven breaks loose in Shakespeare's classic comedy drama. All of the comic verve and wit of the original is retained in this graphic novel adaptation, which features expertly drawn illustrations of Shakespeare's much-loved characters. Ideal as visual introductions to classic texts, Graffex titles are fast-moving, cinematic retellings of wellknown stories. Equally rewarding as comics, graphic novels or learning resources, the series uses specially commissioned full-colour artwork to retell some of the most incredible, influential and memorable tales in the canon of English literature. Speech bubbles feature direct quotes from the original text, running captions describe events in a clear manner and detailed footnotes translate challenging vocabulary and provide interesting background information. It's a wealth of key information that, critically, doesn't overwhelm or distract from the original story. Featuring photographs, paintings and maps, Graffex endmatters tell the story of each book in its wider geographical context. Text details the life of the author, the socio-political events which influenced the book and the impact the book had on the society of the time. Each title also features a double-page opening illustration and a full index.
