Lycia Barros – Janaina Vieira – Laura Conrado
ISBN: 978-85-8217-330-5
Publisher: Autêntica

Subject matter: Classics of the Great Bardo rewritten by them
Synopsis: William Shakespeare is one of the most celebrated writers in history. For almost 400 years his work has been enchanting, teaching and thrilled audiences of different generations around the world. However, his works were written in another age, when values, everyday life, relationships and language were completely different from the reality of the modern world. With the aim of bringing Shakespeare closer to the Brazilian readers, especially the young audience, the authors present in this book three of his most famous pieces adapted to contemporaneity, without losing the essence of the original versions. The eternal work of the English writer wins, in this book, a new look of three different writers, who manage to update the texts, maintaining all drama. Adaptation of Othello, the Moor of Venice – Janaina Vieira; adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Laura Conrado; adaptation of Romeo and Juliet – Lycia Barros.
