Gold Star Award Winner!

Shakespeare's MACBETH has been magically transformed into a highly engaging graphic novel produced by Classical Comics.

The quick text edition offers a simplified version of the Scottish tale by using as few words as possible on the page. The lack of Shakespearean dialogue does not deter from the original tale; in fact, it enhances the play.

Students who struggle with Shakespeare's language will be relieved to see this edition. They can read the original MACBETH while using the graphic novel as a supplemental tool. Teachers may wish to use these novels as a refresher before diving into a unit on Shakespeare.

The artistry in this graphic novel is also amazing! The characters are drawn well with nice, clean lines. The panels are extremely colorful, making the pictures appear to jump off the page.

The Dramatis Personae page provides thumbnail drawings for each character, which will help readers identify the players. The Contents Page breaks the story down into acts and scenes, thereby allowing readers to find specific parts within the play.

I am very impressed with the work Classical Comics is producing. As a teacher, I know how difficult it is to get students to read Shakespeare. These novels will make my job much easier in the future!

From an English teacher 4 octobre 2009
Par Michael Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As an English teacher, I'm always looking for means to show my students different ways to look at literature. My main intent to order this one was because it maintained the original text...which it does. Other than that it doesn't do much special. I've found some other graphic novel for other works that made some bold statements with THE IMAGES; this one doesn't...the graphics are pretty straight forward and concretely consistent. The most unique thing I can show with this one is how it pares down an entire chapter to one spread in the book. The artwork is nice, but doesn't leap off the page; and when it does leap of the page, it is a bit comical...like the witches.

Dialogue butchered like Macduff's family 3 mai 2006
Par Mike Reeves-McMillan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What Arthur Byron Cover has tried to do here is to "stage" Macbeth in a science-fantasy setting, with dragons and planets instead of horses and countries. My personal view - and I know that many people disagree - is that staging Shakespeare out of period seldom works (I say "seldom" because I have seen it done effectively). It particularly doesn't work, though, when the visuals and the dialogue are at odds - for example, when two characters are discussing how remarkable and unnatural it was that King Duncan's horses ate each other and the visual is of two dragons.

This, though, could have almost worked, or at least not been too appalling, if the dialogue itself had not been hacked about in such a way as to make quite a lot of it into nonsense. It's difficult for modern readers to follow Shakespeare's dialog anyway; it's impossible if someone arbitrarily cuts out the middles of sentences, or inserts full stops at the end of speech bubbles despite the fact that the sentence carries on in the next panel, or drops entire, critical lines from key speeches. Worst example of this: Macbeth is meeting the three witches (who appear to be cyborgs or something). The third "all hail" is missing - the line where the witch says "all hail Macbeth, who shall be King hereafter" is completely absent. And this, of course, makes complete incomprehensible nonsense out of the rest of the scene and, indeed, the rest of the play, since this is one of the most significant lines in the entire work as far as plot is concerned.

I'm not sure who's to blame for this - ultimately Penguin, since their editors apparently didn't pick it up or correct it, or the many other lesser dialogue glitches. But it makes what might otherwise have been an adequate adaptation into a complete travesty. One star (for the illustrations, which are competent).

The Luck of Macbeth Made Evident 24 février 2007
Par Brenna Collins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Being the shortest of Shakespearian tragedies, Macbeth would be the logical choice of play to receive the graphic novel treatment. This book, retelling a somewhat truncated version of "the Scottish play," is one of the more recent attempts which capitalizes on the metaphysical elements, while transposing a unique futuristic setting (the opening caption puts the tale in "Stardate: 1040," the King's men ride dragons, and even the Weird Sisters appear as androids).

However, there is a definite sense that the finished product does not live up to the initial aspirations. Though the text is wholly comprised of critical lines gleaned from the original text (including a few superfluous but wholly memorable ones, such as Macbeth's "We have scorched the snake, not killed it" and the witty dialogue between MacDuff's wife and child), the story does not retain the proper flow of the original play. In adapting the story, too much has been lost for the sake of brevity, and thus are the characterizations fatally flawed. One feels little sympathy (much less empathy) with the tragic hero because his transformation from nobility to barbarism is almost immediate, allowing no opportunity to be drawn into his formerly held virtue. In fact, the only portrayal whose death I felt was that of Banquo (and Shakespeare's Macbeth is rife with such unjust murder and assassination)!

Likewise, Mr. Tamai's artwork is competant at best, if inconsistent. The lush style of illustration remains intact for all of 55 pages before degenerating into a completely different one, as if the pages were incomplete at the time of publication. The expressive eyes and astute detail return some twenty pages later, but soon dissipate back to the "new" style. It could be argued that this sharp shift in drawing style is a microcosm representative of Scotland's descent into madness, though for such a purpose it is sadly ineffective.

Together, both the text and the illustration occasionally work against each other, providing not so much complimentary story-telling techniques, but distraction. This is, unfortunately, especially prominent in the first few pages of the book, where the witches deliver their opening lines and the King's fighting men speak poetically during a complex, heavily detailed battle. The beauty of Shakespeare's words are combined with Mr. Tamai's fantastic rendering of a futuristic skirmish, yet the two provide such a juxtaposition as to render a steep mount of confusion.

Helpful would be some form of "spacing," or the use of separations signifying the breaks in the play's Acts (the short book's "chapters," if you will). Also, a brief description of the cast of characters would aid the reader in discerning who's who (since the book does run shorter than the play upon which it is based, thereby creating a minuscule window of opportunity into which the uninitiated reader may enter). Finally, a well-versed knowledge of the original play would assist the reader in getting through the entire book, as the book by itself neither involves nor moves the reader.

It is a lofty aspiration for Penguin Graphics to attempt such an adaptation, so it is especially disappointing that such a valiant effort should fall so short.

a great way to interest your kids in Macbeth! 2 janvier 2010
Par Sherral963 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am pleased with my purchase. The pictures are rich,colorful, and full of detail. The book succeeds in portraying Macbeth in a simplistic way, for a reader who is not yet familiar with any plays by Shakespeare and/ or too young to understand the original text without pictures. The beginning of the book shows the pictures of the different characters involved in the story.
After the end of the story, there are additional historical descriptions, details of theater, and even how the pictures for the graphic novel are made. I bought this book to introduce my boys (ages 10, 12, & 14) to Shakespeare. After they are comfortable with the story, I will transition them to the original text. My book was shipped and sold by Amazon. The book was new, as described, and arrived in perfect condition.

"Macbeth the Graphic Novel"

I like the book to some extent, like the plot and graphics, but the rest of the book was rather boring. It's boring due to the fact that it's been written hundreds of times before. There was nothing new except the comics used to illustrate the actions of the characters.

It was nicely drawn out but three quarters of the way through, the graphics became all sloppy and seemed to have been poorly drawn. It has many large words and old English dialogue, so it may be complicated to some readers. I was able to comprehend most of the language, but most of it I just faded in and out.

The idea is clever to set it in the Star Date 1040, and to add pictures to appeal to younger readers, but they should just leave Shakespearean literature alone and keep it the way it was intended.

Overall I considered the book wordy and poorly thought out. But I give it an A+ for creativity and use of graphics and the blend of suspense, comedy, and tragedy. Although I don't recommend the book, due to its many flaws and poor graphics.
