Shakespeare, translated?

College-bound high school students in Atlanta are studying “modernized” versions of Shakespeare’s plays:

Et tu, Brute?

Not anymore.

“And you too, Brutus?” is what students read in a new genre of study guides that modernize the Elizabethan English found in “Julius Caesar” and other plays by William Shakespeare.

These guides move beyond the plot summaries found in other study aides by providing line-by-line translations in modern-day English.
