      • content:

        March 1, 1993
        Based on an HBO animated series, these condensations emphasize the dramatic content of some of Shakespeare's best known works. As abridged by Garfield in consultation with a panel of scholars, the books on the whole retain the magic of Shakespeare's vision and remain true to his poetics. Linguistic fluidity is perforce sacrificed (omitted lines are presented as italicized summaries interspersed throughout the dialogue), but these versions should still fire children's imaginations. Though the artwork varies in quality, the Eastern European illustrators generally capture the underlying theatrics. Palettes are subdued for the dramas, and appropriately brighter for the comedies (though the tone reproductions frequently seem off). Several plays' illustrations have a cartoony appearance; a few exhibit the stilted look of old Classics Comics. While the plays forgo their complexities--many subplots are omitted--as they become more linear in their themes (Macbeth loses much of his humanity, Romeo and Juliet is pared of its politics), their nobility shines through in these visualized introductions. One hopes that readers will be encouraged to move on to the originals. Ages 10-up.

      • content: What a daunting concept: creating a novelization of Shakespeare's MACBETH and releasing it first as an audiobook. Not only is the novel an amplification of Shakespeare's famous tragedy, but it also fills in many of the gaps and gives a new perspective on Macbeth, his wife (Skena, here), and many of the other characters. Alan Cumming reads in a luscious Scottish brogue, which adds authenticity to the narration. His subtle changes of voice for different characters provide a full cast for this story of ambition and hubris. This is a wonderful novel of the human condition, read with ardor and enthusiasm. K.M.

      • content: If you enjoy vintage productions of radio theater, the CBC delivers just what you're waiting for in this archived MACBETH. The sound and style remind one of not only radio of the past, but also early television drama, with its dense, cloudy sound, semi-classical delivery, and busy production. It sounds as if there were two directors on board, one for the actors and one for the producers, and that is not meant as a compliment. If you love Shakespeare unconditionally, you'll want this nicely packaged CD for your collection. Yes, one CD for the entire play--a polite voice-over catches us up between scenes on what we've missed. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
