In our study of Macbeth we will be refering to 'plain' versions of the text alongside the original Shakespearean language.

the No Fear Shakespeare Macbeth edition (about $8 in Dymocks) features both original and plain versions of the text side by side - this is a great resource!

In class we will also be refering to Macbeth The Graphic Novel created by Classical Comics. If you are interested in buying a copy of this it is about $22 ordered through a bookshop or $21 plus postage from the Australian distributor.
There are three versions of the book each with a different level of text:
Original text- Shakespearean language
Plain text - original script converted into modern language
Quick text - quick modern English for a fast read

we are using the plain text version.
