    I really love this book It made understanding a lot easier for my students BUT I will say that some parts are a little much It seems the translator looks for the most vulgar way to word some of Shakespeare's crude jokes Shakespeare is crude to be sure and some of it is quite funny However sometimes the translator goes too far the other way Plus there were parts that weren't necessarily as sexual in the original as it was presented in the translated version like scenes that were purposely left ambiguous so that it might have been interpreted in than one way This actually took away from the cleverness and thoughtfulness of some of Shakespeare's jokesBecause of this I had to pre read all the scenes to choose which scenes we read in this book and which ones we read from the original text from the textbook where students couldn't read the translation I did find however that the classes that used BOTH original and translated readings for the unit had an easier time understanding the original text when challenged to do so likely because they didn't feel as overwhelmed from days of old textThis is a very useful tool for the classroom Both versions are important and truthfully some of my students preferred the original text and some preferred the new text so switching between the two for certain scenes was a great exercise
