Re: Peter Novak's inquiry about modern-language Shakespeare: I believe Maurice
Charney "translated" the complete works about a decade ago. I can't recall who
published the volume, and I don't know whether it is still in print. If it is,
you might find it a reasonable alternative to the Rowse edition. Good luck with
your laudable project.

Re: Peter Novak's request for information on modernized texts to assist the
interpretation of plays for deaf audiences.  There is a series called
"Shakespeare Parallel Text Series" [which I have not seen] that may be helpful.
As advertised, "A series presenting Shakespeare's plays in both the original
text and in a line-by-line modern English paraphrase" on facing pages. In the
series are *Ham.*, *JC*, *LR.*, *Mac.*, *MV*, *MND*, *Oth.*, *Rom.*, *Shr.*
In *Shakespeare* catalog of The Writing Company [1-800-421-4245 or 1-310-839-
2436].  On p. 22 of 1994 catalog. J.J.Hill @TSU.
