Each No Fear Shakespeare contains:

A line-by-line translation that puts Shakespeare into everyday language

Plenty of helpful commentary.

Shakespeare's classic tale of witches, murder, and madness.

"Double, double toil and trouble;


Fire burn and caldron bubble.


Fillet of a fenny snake,


In the caldron boil and bake;


Eye of newt and toe of frog,


Wool of bat and tongue of dog,


Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,


Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,


For a charm of powerful trouble,


Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.



Double, double toil and trouble;


Fire burn and caldron bubble.


Cool it with a baboon's blood,


Then the charm is firm and good."

Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38

About Sparknotes

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) gilt als einer der größten Dichter und Dramatiker der Weltgeschichte. Er verfasste zahlreiche Dramen, Tragödien, Komödien und Gedichte, mit denen er schon zu Lebzeiten Anerkennung und Wohlstand errang. Aber erst in den folgenden Jahrhunderten wurde er zum Prototypen des literarischen Genies, ohne den die Entwicklung der neueren Literatur von Goethe über Brecht bis in die Gegenwart hinein undenkbar ist.
