  • (4/5)
    After reading Bruce Coville's and Dennis Nolan's adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Ann Beneduce and Gennady Spirin's The Tempest, the shift to the more dire tonality of Coville and Gary Kelley's Macbeth was quite jarring. The illustrations of those two books were so fantastic, in both quality and content, that the strikingly serious panels here were difficult to get used to. Ultimately, though, the shift proved the right decision, in my opinion. Macbeth deserves a more grim disposition than most of Shakespeare's works and Coville, as he did with others, recognized the shift and changed pace capably.The language used here is similar to Coville's other Shakespeare adaptations. He masterfully simplifies the goings-on of the story, while not babying the reader, an important negotiation while writing an adaptation of this nature.

    Macbeth has become a curse in the theater community. If you say his name three times in a row, your performance is doomed. Knowing this, I wanted to find out what Macbeth was all about. Coville's adaptation of the Shakespearan tale helped me discover this. Macbeth fights with himself over heroism and evil. The witches add a fantasy element. I think this book can be enjoyed by any student grades seven and up!
