This book translates Shakespeare’s famous words into contemporary English with relevant stories of Caribbean life. It is a cornucopia of hot topics: love, rape, obesity, the supernatural, and many more.

Abstract:
A Caribbean Accent to Shakespeare’s Voice is a Shakespeare-Made-Easy “translation” that also provides “correction.” For example, Juliet’s lament—“Wherefore art thou Romeo?”—is usually translated, “Where are you Romeo?” The correct paraphrase is “WHY are you Romeo?” This is the only book of its kind because it incorporates all of the following characteristics: It is a book of quotations, interesting stories, and paraphrases or “translations” of many of Shakespeare’s famous utterances and hot topics—from sleep and love to the supernatural—embellished by riveting Caribbean scenes, intriguing characters, and relevant Biblical references.

  A Valuable and Intriguing Book of Ideas , 05/06/2012
Reviewer: Eugenie Wilkins
This book held my interest from beginning to end. I was often reluctant to put it down. I have had trouble understanding Shakespeare's language, but when I read the paraphrases in this book, I grasp his profound ideas. And the themes, the issues, and the great stories about the happenings in the Caribbean and in the author's life are riveting. Even the biblical references are interesting. A great book.
