NoSweatShakespeare is a labor of love from London-based father and son Shakespeare enthusiasts Ralph and Ed Goldswain.
The NoSweatShakespeare ebooks stem from a realisation that although so much good work has been done on textual aspects and the broad grasp of plot, few resources are available to give students a complete grasp of the complexity of a whole Shakespeare text in one short reading. See samples of Shakespeare’s plays as modern English ebooks.

“I wish there would have been something like this for me when I was studying Shakespeare!”
“I am a student in a World Lit class in college. I read the Tempest by Shakespeare. Actually I read it a couple of times. I’m not used to that style of language and grammar. Just to be sure I had all the details, I downloaded The Tempest from you. It helped clear a couple things up for me and added some minor details that really helped when it came test time.”
“After failing miserably to understand Shakespeare myself I was aghast to be asked for help by my daughter for her exams. The service you offer is absolutely fantastic and allowed her to be able to understand the play in modern day language, which made reading and following the original much easier. It is with no understatement the reason she did so well in her English exams. Probably the best money I have ever spent on her education and I have already recommended it to friends!”
“I needed a version of the play that was not a “watered down” text that my students could understand and get the meaning from so that they could relate to the themes of the play without getting lost in the language. This version has been instrumental in my students’ understanding and I am so glad I found your website.”
