the revenge drama centering on the introspective Prince of Denmark — one of literature's most discussed and contentious characters, and the role that every actor longs to play; Macbeth,
otherwise known as "The Scottish Play," concerning a nobleman's overweening ambition; Othello,
in which a gallant soldier and loving husband is undone by jealousy; and Romeo and Juliet,
the timeless tale of the young lovers whose names are synonymous with star-crossed romance. Includes 2 selections from the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
