`Give me the daggers and I'll pin the blame/ On Duncan's grooms who both are also slain. /A little water clears us of this
deed /Though a large scotch might also do the trick...' To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this is
the first of a new collection of the Bard's greatest plays, digested to a few thousand words with invaluable side notes from
John Sutherland. Funny and incredibly clever, these parodies are a joy for those who know their Shakespeare, perfect for
the theatre goer needing a quick recap, and a massive relief for those just desperate to pass their English exam.
Crace, creator of the Guardian's 'Digested Read' column, parodies 'the Scottish play' in a brilliantly funny reduced form,
with Professor John Sutherland providing notes.
