End your struggle with the Bard’s prose and indulge in a romantic comedy that’s better than a soap opera. Shakespeare on the Double! Twelfth Night includes an easy-to-understand modern English translation alongside the original Shakespearian text so that you can read only the translation, read the translation with the original text, or tackle the original text, referring only to the translation when you’re stumped. A comprehensive character list describes the traits of each major character, a visual map depicts relationships, and review questions reinforce important information so you won’t miss the action.

From the Back Cover:

"O Time, thou must untangle this, not I! It is too hard a knot for me to untie!"

This romantic comedy features disguises and mistaken identities, impractical jokes, interwoven plots and subplots, and a love triangle with complications. The diverse characters include genteel nobility, shipwrecked twins, a vain steward, and more. In Twelfth Night, love causes lots of pain, but reading it won't, thanks to the easy-to-understand translation and other aids that make following the action and grasping the meaning a snap:

  • A brief synopsis of the plot and action

  • A comprehensive character list that describes the characteristics, motivations, and actions of each major player

  • A visual character map that shows the relationships of major characters

  • A cycle-of-love graphic that pinpoints the sequence of love in the play, including who truly loves whom, and who mistakenly loves whom

  • Reflective questions that help you understand the themes of the play

With Shakespeare on the Double! Twelfth Night, you'll untangle and appre-ciate Shakespeare in no time!
